Folk Herbal Medicine
Monday May 23
2:30-4:00pm

Join herbalist Corinne Feinberg as she teaches you to communicate with the natural world through an intuitive method of herbal medicine. This folk tradition of herbalism is centered around cultivating a relationship and listening to the wisdom of the natural world as a portal to understanding how plants can support us in all facets of our being, and how we can in turn support their ability to thrive alongside us.



Corinne is trained at The Gaia School of Healing and Earth Education in addition to 400 hours of herbal medicine study, and has been teaching herbalism from an intuitive perspective since 2015 throughout the northeastern United States and in southern California. 

She invites you to join in playful learning, meditative medicine, pleasure for the senses, and the ever-unfolding wisdom of the plant kingdom as we learn about herbal medicine from direct experience paired with scientific findings. We'll be exploring non-psychoactive plants through various herbal preparations and sitting amongst the diverse medicinal plants on the verdant grounds of the Herb Garden.
Previous herbal medicine knowledge or experience is not necessary to attend.

Sound Healing and Yin Yoga    
Sunday, May 29
9-10 am

Experience the powerful synergy of sound and yoga amongst the picturesque gardens. Sound healing immerses you in a sea of vibrations that gently coax your mind and body into balance. Yin is a slower-paced style of yoga that incorporates longer holds while seated or lying down, for the purpose of relaxation and restoration. Together, they are the perfect pair to help you deepen your stretches and your sense of inner-peace! Join us in this rich sensory experience of beautiful sights, sensations and sounds. Bring your own mat. The class is outside on grass with limited shade, so please also bring a towel for damp grass and sunscreen.
