Date: Sunday 8th December 2019, 10.00am to 3.30pm
Location: Where Inspiration Blooms, The Barn, Chartridge Lodge, Chesham HP5 2TU
“It doesn’t get much better than spending a day in the beautiful grounds of Where Inspiration Blooms, setting intentions for the year ahead while nourishing mind, body, spirit and heart with yoga, vegan meals and herbal medicine. ”
December signals the beginning of winter, the perfect time to make root-based meals and winter medicine. This nourishing wellness day, set in a gorgeous barn in Buckinghamshire, combines yoga and relaxation, high quality vegan food, some contemplation time around the fire pit and a hands-on herbal medicine making session.
- Grounding Yoga and Meditation Workshop
This workshop will be led by Yoga Teacher Teresa Smith. She will start the day with a gentle practice, exploring stability and strength in yoga poses with plenty of restful pauses. Paying attention to the breath as we move will establish a deep and calming mind-body-breath connection and prepare for a guided relaxation meditation that should leave you feeling rested and nourished.
- Nourishing Vegan Lunch
Vegan Chef Jacqui will prepare a delicious lunch from seasonal and healthy ingredients and will provide a short interactive session to explain the health and nutritional benefits of the ingredients she uses. You will receive some lovely recipes to take home as well!
- Fire Pit Story Time and Herbal Medicine Workshop
This session will be led by Medical Herbalist Kristine De Block. Herbal Medicine is deeply rooted in tradition. Herbalists love sharing the old stories, the knowledge of our ancestors. Inspired by the wisdom of the earth, working with plants and roots, Kristine invites you to join her around the fire pit. She will set the scene with a lovely tale, some healing intentions for the season ahead, and will then go on to teach you to make your very own herbal root-based tonic for winter.
- Closing Time
We will finish the day with some lovely tea and cake around the fire pit.
All materials and notes are provided, so you can just get on and enjoy your time here.
