Growing Whole with the Spring Season

  • The Grateful Shed Pasadena, CA (map)

Join Kelsey Barrett of @heavynettlegathering, where we will embrace how herbs and the wisdom of nature can support us as we shift into Spring. Together we will explore the medicinal properties of seasonal herbs that rejuvenate skin health, shed Winter stagnation and beautify from the inside out. You will enjoy a tasting of herbal teas, guided plant meditations, and learn the folk and scientific story behind these potent medicines. With your new knowledge of plants, you will build a custom tea formula to take home that will nourish you through the Spring Season.

Kari Jansen from the acclaimed herbal retailer @poppyandsomeday will join us to teach the sacred ritual of Gua Sha.  Gua Sha is an ancient technique that moves and drains lymph, erases wrinkles, increases blood flow, contours, lifts and brightens the face, helps release toxins and promotes relaxation.  

Explore seasonal eating with a communal sampling inspired by Spring's delicate nature and the dawning of green from Kat Turner of @highlylikelycafe.
