Current Classes

Join us on March 25, 2019 from 6-8 pm for the next herbal class focusing on herbal allies for depression.

The longest nights of the year take an extra emotional toll on many of us. Join clinical herbalist Alex Svoboda of Arise Botanicals to discuss simple, safe and empowering herbal-care strategies for addressing seasonal and chronic depression. We will gather to explore how to work with herbs on an energetic and physical level while we taste, touch and smell the plants we’re discussing. This herbal approach is offered as a complimentary practice to the many ways in which we heal depression.  Herbal tea will be shared along with a resource packet so you don't have to stress on remembering all the details.  Items from the Arise apothecary will also be available for purchase
