Reset + Revitalize: Ayurveda Spring Cleanse Supper
with Molly Russell
Sunday, March 13, 6:00-8:00PM
Homestead Apothecary, 486 49th Street,  #C, Oakland, 510-495-6549

Spring is a natural time to renew, regenerate and release stagnant energies that have accumulated over the winter in our bodies.  Your body is remarkably intelligent and incredibly hard working. The practice of cleansing is a vital part of health and offers great potential for improved energy, strength, and immunity. An Ayurvedic cleanse both rests and resets the digestive system.

Let’s come together around the dinner table for an interactive Ayurvedic dinner with Ayurvedic chef and Health Counsel
Molly Russell. Molly will guide you with practical diet and lifestyle recommendations that will help in addressing everything from allergies, sinus congestion, energy level, weight, and clarity of mind this coming spring. Take home recipes, techniques, and seasonal spices to incorporate into tasty dishes for you and your family.  Molly will serve up a delicious green mung kitchadi and all the fixings for dinner - ghee, ginger, lime, coconut, toasted sesame seeds, and cilantro.  Kitchadi is a complete protein meal of cooked basmati rice and mung beans, with so many health benefits that you will all learn.

Ayurveda translates as “knowledge of life” and dates back 5,000 years to ancient India. An Ayurvedic practice addresses the root of disease and incorporates the whole system’s ability to self-heal. It is a leading form of primary care medicine and widely practiced throughout India, Asia, and many European countries. In the last 20+ years, people are also turning to Ayurvedic medicine in the U.S.

After struggling with acne, digestive issues, low energy, and anxiety for much of her life, Molly realized she wanted to learn the real root of all of this. Western medicine just wasn’t cutting it. With a background in social work and education, she graduated from a 3-year intensive Ayurveda Health Counselor program from Vedika Gurukula in Emeryville. After changing her diet and lifestyle, and seeing the effects of cooking foods that were balancing for her body and mind in changing seasons, she really felt inspired to share this deeply rooted science of Ayurveda with her community. Molly’s wish is to share in a simple manner so that others can benefit from all of the practical and natural gifts Ayurveda has to offer to the modern world. Molly has practiced Ayurveda for past 6 years and offers individual counseling, group classes and cooking workshops around the Bay Area.
