Tending the Hearth: Herbs and Rituals for Immunity
Drawing on the wisdom of kitchen medicine, we’ll tend to the hearth of our bodies, our physical homes, and branch out to the tending we must do for our planet. In this class, we’ll reach back to the ancestral wisdom of the hearth and kitchen, our plant kin, the wisdom of our bodies, and explore self-care practices and home-tending rituals to support our holistic well-being. We’ll touch on a variety of topics such as easy to find medicinal plants and their traditional uses, seasonal herbal remedies, nourishing body care and other rituals to welcome the Spring season.
