Breath is the elixir of life. We all do it, everyday - but most of us aren’t conscious of how much or how well we breathe. Not only does conscious breathing allow for a connection to spirit, it relaxes the body, eliminates anxiety, and provides the energy we need for any situation.

In Part 1 of this breathing series, we pair breathing with our physical existence, including using herbs, essential oils and essences, to cultivate an earthy way to get into our body and attune our root chakra. We will practice breathing techniques that focus on feeling grounded and secure in our body. We will also discuss grounding and lung opening herbs, essential oils and essences, creating tea rituals and using the oils with breathing exercises. The class will be filled with aromas, essences, tea, and breathing. 

Everyone will receive an essential oil/essence blend & some herbal tea to take home.

Each class will repeat the core curriculum but breathing techniques, chakra exploration, herbs, oils and essences will vary from each class. Each class may be taken in any order, by itself and in combination with some or all of the others.

Breath is the elixir of life. We all do it, everyday - but most of us aren’t conscious of how much or how well we breathe. Not only does conscious breathing allow for a connection to spirit, it relaxes the body, eliminates anxiety, and provides the energy we need for all situations.

In Part 7 of this breathing series, we pair breathing with spirit, including using herbs, essential oils and essences, to cultivate a deeper connection to the divine within and attune our crown chakra. We will practice breathing techniques that focus on feeling connected to the spirit of all things. We will also discuss ceremonial and lung opening herbs, essential oils and essences, creating tea rituals and using the oils with breathing exercises. The class will be filled with aromas, essences, tea, and breathing.

Everyone will receive an essential oil/essence blend & some herbal tea to take home.

Each class will repeat the core curriculum but breathing techniques, chakra exploration, herbs, oils and essences will vary from each class. Each class may be taken in any order, by itself and in combination with some or all of the others.

Are you curious about CBD and its recent explosion into the marketplace? Do you have questions like: What does it do? What is Full or Broad Spectrum? What is an Isolate? Do you need the whole plant or just the flowers? What are the best extraction methods? What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana? Will I get high or fail a drug test? Look no further for a complete overview of the plant, Cannabis sativa, or Hemp and how it works with our (and our pets) endocannabinoid system in this 1 hour info session. We will discuss the various benefits, contraindications, and other herbal allies and supplements that may be used in combination with CBD to increase its effectiveness. We will also explore other components of the Hemp plant, including CBDA, CBG, terpenes and other phytocannabinoids. There will be many samples to taste and experience.
