I have been gardening lots lately. Initially to get the place ready for my recent herbal medicine making day. Now it's looking, feeling, and smelling, great!
I have an abundance of herbs waiting to be made into medicines.
Recently I got inspired to grow some more unusual herbs, so I'm playing with soil acid/alkaline balance and trying to grow Saffron, and Licorice. They are peeking at me, so hopefully will both continue to thrive.
I will offer workshops more regularly again next year.
Do contact me if you are interested.
The next will be another Herbal medicine making day - as a few people missed out on the last one. This will be in early Feb '24
Merry Festive Season to you all, and May we have Peace
We had 2 lovely days in the garden together, in my recent two workshops here. Lots of questions from the participants kept it relevant. I love questions when I'm teaching.
The next workshops, in the new year, will be around herbal medicine making.. so stay tuned for that.
I'm excited! I have just uploaded my new Daily Regimes Package. See the Video Courses section.
For many years my students and patients have been asking for a simple guide to inspire them with daily practices. So here it is.
I have found, throughout the many years of working with Ayurveda, that the daily regimes are a simple yet profound way of strengthening immunity and overall health.
This includes mental health.
Having an easy structure of daily habits helps us to tune in and become mindful. It helps us to see how the ways we are living, and thinking are affecting us.
Nourishing ourselves in these unstable times is more important than ever. So be inspired to jump into, or continue with, these ancient yet relevant techniques.
,The sun has come out at last after a month of rain, and these beauties are blossoming in my garden. I love Roses - they open my heart.
At the end of February 2021, we will offer a beautiful 3-day all-inclusive experience to dive deep into the principles of Ayurveda and how to apply them in your everyday life.
Whether you're a beginner or have been practicing for a while, this workshop is a great opportunity to deepen your spiritual practice and take new valuable knowledge and skills home with you! Also included are daily gourmet vegetarian meals and accomodation in a lush, grounding natural setting. Feel free to contact me for any enquiries or bookings.
Good morning! Today I am making a Fresh plant tincture of Bidens.
This "weed" is an amazing herb with numerous healing benefits and it grows prolifically here. As well as using as tea and tincture it is also a great bush food!
The fresh leaves are yummy as a green in salads or lightly cooked.
I also add them to spinach when making one of my favorite dishes - palak paneer!
Had a lovely Bush Medicines workshop here yesterday despite the heat. I will offer another one soon as this one booked out, so some of you missed out. Contact me to be top of the list for the next one..
Have a look in the workshops section here, as I have upgraded the workshops I now offer. Please contact me if you would like me to come to your area to share with you and your friends or students.
