Happy New Year!
Three weeks into 2020 and we are feeling the love for sure. Thank you for making the 2019 launch of The Vervain Collective feel so powerful and so special. Since our soft opening in August, we have served hundreds of people as they explore new or deeper relationships with plants and share their expertise and knowledge with their community. We are celebrating what we’ve built so far and reflecting on what’s ahead as we continue to work toward our goals and enjoy learning from our herbal allies! January is off to a great start – here’s a smattering of what’s going on:
The Science & Art of Herbalism started Saturday, January 18th! We’re delighted to be hosting a 10-month study group for Rosemary Gladstar’s epic certification program and there is still time to join for the remaining sessions. We have a plan for people who don’t start from the first session, so please get in touch! Sign up for the full course or monthly drop-ins here.
Qigong Wednesdays at Vervain with Dr. Jackie Schrempp, NMD, LAc. have begun and will continue every week through May! Class starts at 5pm, ends at 5:45pm, and costs $10 per class (sliding scale available; just ask!). Wear comfy clothes you can move in, bring your yoga mat, and come enjoy this invigorating movement meditation taught by an expert! Sign up here and join us as we stimulate our Qi and improve our flow!
