Herbs for Emotional & Spiritual Healing

Oct 12, 6-8 PM
Center for Growth, Ashtabula, Ohio

Herbs are amazing in that they can help people on all levels, not just the physical. Yes, they help balance and nourish the body, but they are limitless when it comes to emotional, mental, and spiritual healing.

In this short but intensive class, herbalist Leah Wolfe, will guide you on a journey of developing relationships with plants so that you can work with them to heal emotional and spiritual wounds. For example, the plant above is Yarrow, also known as the Healer’s Healer, healer of all wounds, whether physical or emotional. It is used for spiritual and emotional protection.

One person who attended said that he learned about Dandelion in such a profound way, the power of Dandelion will always be with him; that he brought something very good into his spirit, mind and body. Others have found that working with herbs this way helped them identify food allergies and other sensitivities, while teaching them how to find the herbs that are best for them.  This is an opportunity to explore the natural world in a hands-on environment where you will learn things that you will never forget.

Join this class to learn more. This class will be offered monthly so you can meet a new plant each month. Contact us if you’d like to join us!
