Sweetgrass, Sweetness and Song July 27th 7-9:30pm for York Region Womens Wellness Circle organized each month by Karen Armstrong The Plants have many teachings to direct our compass and strengthen Right Relationship in how we share with others, ourselves and Creation. The Stories and Teachings are waiting to be woven and re-woven into the fabrics of our lives. As we turn to listen to the wise Plant People, we remember what it is to walk a little slower, live a little lighter and feel more at peace with our role as stewards. Urban stewardship is vital, and we are being asked to listen. It's my intent to share stories, analogies and symbolism about the quietest citizens we have, the Plants.
Herbs of Quiet Power September 24th 2-3pm at Richters Herbs Understanding the messages of plants deepens our understanding with the Great Circle that we all share. The afternoon discussion will tie-in plant teachings, aromatherapy, and ecological insights.

2016 ** Please note that a lot of classes have been put on hold this year as I have been a part-time student in a diploma program for Herbalism. I have been busy out in the fields, forests and wet-lands identifying, harvesting, and preparing herbs. In conjunction with the field studies, I have been participating in classes, listening to lectures, and deepening my understanding of plant therapy from a spiritual and clinical perspective. I am still meeting with clients for treatments, and I have some plans for more classes/workshops/sound circles/herb-walks in the future. Thank you for your patience!

2015 Aromatherapy for Womens Senior Group Wednesday Sept 2nd/15 2-4pm Sutton for the Nurse-Practitioners Clinic
Workshops are ongoing throughout the year. I provide color hand-outs and blends for participants to take home. I present engaging information about chemistry, blending, carrier oils and the physical and spiritual attributes of essential oils. I add hands-on elements for participants and encourage group participation. If you are interested in a private workshop in your home or at the clinic I would be happy to arrange a day and time with you. For those interested in co-facilitating a series or workshop together, I can work with you in collaborating a creative, practical and hands-on event.
*CEUs for RMT's taking any of the above workshops.
