Event description

Description

Stress is a pervasive experience in modern culture, draining our energy, affecting our sleep, and impacting our ability to enjoy life. It’s becoming more and more rare to grant ourselves permission to unplug, rest and regenerate; rather, we’re encouraged to pursue productivity at the expense of self-care. Join herbalist Betsy Miller for an evening of botanical relaxation to learn which herbs and practices we can call on in our times of need. Betsy will discuss several of her favorite nervine plants, including rose, wild oat and blue vervain.

Please note: Students will receive an email with a link to the webinar 20 minutes before class begins.
