Herbalism and Self Care Intensive with Alexandra Keane

12:30-3:30pm

April 1st

Herbalism and Self Care Intensive with Alexandra Keane

We live in fast-paced, potent, and politically charged times, and it's no wonder why our bodies are constantly feeling under duress! This Herbal Intensive workshop is specifically designed to provide tools from a holistic and systems-thinking perspective on health and well-being. Through a restorative lens, we will dive deep into the world of herbalism and holistic medicine, bridging rootsy and traditional herbalism with the science of the stress response cycles that occur in the body, and how to heal them. This class will also focus on embodying the wild feminine or masculine, a process deeply founded upon empowerment and standing within one's sovereignty through visceral self care practices, restorative activism, and botanical remedies to facilitate that process.

Individuals will walk away with a brief overview of Global Herbal Traditions, stress response cycles within the body and nervous system, herbal terminology, knowledge on local common "weeds" and medicines, botanical remedies to facilitate a smooth transition between seasons and to feel empowered and supported during big life changes and transitions. Once acquiring a cursory overview of herbalism and the body, we will explore ways to create your very own DIY herbal remedies at home, as well as touching on ethical planting and harvesting practices from a grower's perspective.

This class is meant to provide to a crash course on herbalism, methodologies, how stress and anxiety play out within the body and how to heal starting from the inside out! Self Empowerment and embracing our inner wild hearts will guide us through the intensive, showing the intimate relationship between our inner selves and the surrounding living environment. Come join us and embrace a radical, and empowered perspective on your health and well being as we step into spring!

Walking the Razor's Edge:<br>The Yoga of the Upanishads

The Upanishads are a collection of texts of a spiritual and philosophical nature, composed in India between c. 800 & 500 BCE. They contain some of the earliest teachings on philosophy and practice of yoga and meditation.

A scene from The Razor’s Edge (1984), starring Bill Murray

This four-week seminar is an exploration of the six-fold Yoga of the Maitri Upanishad; the subtle body (The Five Koshas) from the Taittiriya and Mandukya Upanishads; encountering the unconscious in the Katha Upanishad (Nachiketa’s dialog with the Lord of Death); the psychology of the Self in Yājñavalkya’s dialogs with his wife Maitreyī, the great King Janaka, and the woman-sage Gargi; as well as the great sayings (mahāvākyas) that are said to embody the sum total of all the wisdom of the Upanishads.
