HI Farida,I hope this finds you well and happy! I have been thinking of you a lot lately because I have been doing more teaching and that reminds me of the beautiful and powerful spaces you create whenever you teach. I continue to be inspired by you!
I taught a one day workshop called "Simple Spring Cleansing Techniques using Herbs and Naturopathy" to which I had 10 participants (a full course since my house is small). We gathered here at my home and used the juicer, vitamix blender, made alkaline health broths, wandered in the gardens (which are SO fresh with spring growth), gathered herbs, made herbal poultices, and generally talked over many exciting and important aspects of healing and cleansing. I REALLY enjoyed teaching and got some great feedback. I hope to do the same course again in the fall. This course then kicked off my week long bi-yearly juice cleanse with herbs etc.
It was such a pleasure to share the information, books, techniques, etc. and everyone really seemed to enjoy it. I wanted to keep it very simple and easy so no one was overwhelmed. I wanted everyone to go away from the day with practical information, which they did. Oh, and I also took a digital Iridology photograph of each participant prior to the course which they all loved! This way I encouraged and guided them to the organs or body systems that needed extra support. The Iridology was especially fascinating and appealing to the attendees.
I am putting together a few 1 day courses such as Herbal First Aid, Reflexology, Cleansing, Herbal Medicine Making and maybe a brief intro to Iridology. I have been wanting to change directions a bit from doing bodywork/reflexology as my main income generator. I have been thinking of teaching and then within a day I had the course outline for several different courses. I have so far only run them through the continuing education aspect of our local currency system (HANDS). So the participants pay 1/2 in HANDS and 1/2 in Kiwi $. Life unfolds and a new direction emerges. So exciting!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I know I am giving Thanks! I give thanks for amazing women like you!
Love and light, Shanti (Golden Bay, New Zealand, Graduate Naturopath, Master Herbalist, Master Iridologist, School of Natural Medicine, Boulder, Colorado)
