Healing the Heart with herbal medicine
To fully be open to life, we need to actively strengthen and nourish our hearts so we can move through life, being open to experience instead of closing ourselves off and shutting them down.  From Rose, to Hawthorne, to Nettle, to Linden...  Learn how to use plants and trees as allies to truly embrace the love that is all around us at all times. Relaxing heart opening and strengthening infusions will be provided. $25 per session/$60 for all three

About the facilitator: Scott combines his three loves of art, music and the healing plants as a teaching artist to give fun, unique and informative workshops, lectures and performances. Scott graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and has received grants from the Puffin Foundation for both art and songwriting. He is currently a teaching artist with the Peace Garden Song and Mural project - where he brings murals, music and mindfulness into schools. He has been practicing herbalism for the past 15 years apprenticing with Herbalist Robin Rose Bennett for the last three.  By learning first hand from the plants Scott has discovered that creativity is much more than art in a gallery or music from an instrument.  The plants have taught him that magic is all around us and the more we are aware of this the more we can create what we want in our lives and in the world.
