Traditionally, the Autumn season was when our ancestors focused on strengthening immune health before entering the darkest time of the year. This self-care practice was done with the help of traditional foods and herbal medicines.
In this class, you will learn about herbs that fight the flu, colds and other winter ills. You will learn simple yet effective remedies for nourishing ourselves and others this season. Each participant will leave with an immunity elixir so they can continue to stay balanced during the coldest days of the year.
Liz Migliorelli is a western herbalist and magic maker who believes in affordable, accessible, community-based health care and the healing power of plants. She believes in the healing that comes from our own gardens, the local land, and our kitchens. She is devoted to encouraging others to find empowerment through self-care and harm reduction, to find healing in a cup of fir tip and strawberry leaf tea, and to find magic in the simple practices that connect us to the Earth. Liz is the owner of Sister Spinster, where she spends most of her time communing with flowers and making flower essences. When she's not doing that she is teaching classes around the Bay Area, taking forest naps and infusing herbal honeys.
