Current Classes

Empowered Healing is excited to host Alex Svoboda for a cold and flu prevention and care on January 17th from 6-8pm.

This class will focus on four healing herbs and one medicinal mushroom to help keep you and yours healthy through the cold and flu season. The emphasis will be on prairie plants that can be cultivated or found locally to deepen our connection to the ecosystem we are a part of. Alex will be sharing recipes that can easily be made at home to help you build your herbal apothecary and will also have items available for purchase from the Arise Botanicals apothecary.

Herbal tea will be provided and each participant will receive a detailed info packet so you don’t need to stress on remembering all the great herbal knowledge shared.

Class cost is $25 per person. Cash or local check only for this event please. Reserve your spot below, as space is limited.
