An Intro to Ayurveda:

This workshop will explore the basic principles of Ayurvedic medicine and food. We will touch on topics like the doshas, tastes, and elements, as well as imbalances in the body and how to work with them. This workshop will incorporate teachings that are very practical and can be incorporated day to day.

$5-$25 sliding scale. This is a fundraiser for Our Sustenance Farmers Market in Six Nations. The workshop facilitator is Shabina, a queer Indian mixie who practices and teaches about western herbalism and Ayurveda. She has been studying healing arts for the last 7 years. She believes that healing, liberation and justice go hand in hand. She loves eating fatty and spicy foods and finding practical approaches to healing that are realistic and empower what we already know intuitively.

Saturday June 6, 3:30 – 6:30pm (previously scheduled for May 23rd)
