AT GOLDEN POPPY, EDUCATION IS ONE OF OUR PRIMARY PRINCIPLES. WE SEEK TO EDUCATE AND EMPOWER OTHERS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THEY NEED TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN HEALTHY, NATURALLY.
How would it feel to live in tune with the rhythms of nature? To truly eat, sleep, move, and breathe in a way that felt harmonious with the world around you?
Herbal medicine traditions such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have always placed great value in living in tune with the rhythms of nature, a concept of which we westerners have begun to try and adopt back into our lives in this age of modernity.
These traditions have specific herbs, foods, and therapies for each season to help one’s body stay in balance with the seasons.
While it may not be possible to completely escape the confines of our modern world and return to a state where we can adopt different lifestyles as the seasons change, it is possible to bring some of this wisdom into your life in ways that are still beneficial to your health and well being.
This class series will take an in-depth look at the energetics of the seasons and how this affects your body and your state of health, and apply this knowledge in easy-to-use ways so you can begin to match your body to the rhythms of nature.
We will discuss energetics from an Ayurvedic, TCM, and Western herbal perspective; touching on ancient traditions as well as their modern counterparts. We will cover herbs, foods, and lifestyle habits for each season to help bring, and keep, your body into harmony with the world around you.
An understanding of energetics is helpful but not necessary as we will cover the energetics of each season, herb, food, and their effects on the person. Each class is a stand-alone class, though of course, you will benefit most from taking them all!
These will be lecture-style classes held via Zoom so even if you can’t attend on the day of the class, be sure to sign up to get access to the recording.
