Imagine a holiday season of ease and peace. Your movements are fluid and calm. You feel grounded
and centered, and you provide for yourself and your loved ones with attention and awareness. You
find pleasure in the sensuality of a steaming cup of herbal tea, you savor the elegance of wholesome
foods, and you indulge in movement that supports and strengthens your body. The season of
holidays and rituals has become a time of deep nourishment, connection, and contentment for you.
Join us to discover how you can transform your holidays
into a time of easefulness AND luxury.

A Day of Nourishment Session Descriptions

With Susan McCulley, Rebecca George and Heather Wetzel

Saturday, Nov 3, 2012, 8:30 – 5:00pm


Nia Classes with Susan

In two Nia classes in the morning and afternoon, we’ll explore aspects of nourishment through the mindful, playful movement of Nia.  What is the sensation of nourishing movement that sustains life, health and growth?  How can we savor that sensation?  And how do we receive the nourishment we offer ourselves?

Autumn Health and Herbs:  A class and Plant Walk with Heather Wetzel, Certified Community Herbalist. All traditional medicine cultures know that one of the most important aspects of health is to live in harmony with the seasons. Autumn is a time of transition between Late Summer and Winter. We’ll learn important diet and lifestyle strategies plus herbal allies to support us in this time.

Food Freedance: A Cooking and Tasting Workshop (and Lunch!) with Rebecca

Join Rebecca to explore how mindfulness about the food we eat can help us nourish ourselves more deeply.   We’ll discover ways to support ourselves throughout the holidays by indulging in flavorful wholesome foods. As we prepare and savor several versatile dishes for our lunch, we’ll discuss how we can play with basic recipes to discover yummy ways to truly nourish ourselves.
