Exploring Herbs to Nourish and Support Through the Vata Season of the Year and the Vata Time of Life

With Anne McIntyre

I am so excited to host my dear friend and Ayurvedic Practitioner, Anne McIntyre for a day of discussing wonderful strengthening rasayana herbs from East and West.

Anne will describe methods of preparation of fresh and dried herbs which can be used as we transition from summer to fall, from the Pitta time of life to the wise Vata years. Aromatic plants that perfume and adorn our gardens, wild herbs that abound in field and hedgerow as well as those grown locally give us the means to provide ourselves and our patients with the best possible care. Each herb has its unique wisdom, pranic attributes and energetic effects, as well as pharmacological constituents and potential ability to heal; herbs from both East and West are dynamic manifestations of Consciousness and an extraordinary gift. With an understanding of how to use local herbs from an Ayurvedic perspective we can incorporate them into modern Ayurvedic practice.

Date: Saturday September 17, 2016

Time: 9:30 – 5:00. A seasonally prepared lunch is included. Our lunch break will allow ample time for a walk or a sit on the beach.

Cost: $125 per person. Please contact Lisa to register. Our desire is to welcome all. If you require scholarship, please contact Lisa to make arrangements.
