A Haitian Treasure Tea In Memory

Reflecting on the Haiti earthquake which took place on January 12, 2010. Remembering our ancestors. Dream-mapping for our future.

During my morning meditation, it came to me to formulate a healing tea in memory of our past and as a way to evoke positive, transformational, and healing energy for Haiti’s future.

Bitter melon (asowosi): to remind us that all that’s bitter isn’t bad. bitterness helps us reflect on what’s not working. bitterness also makes us appreciate sweetness.
Catnip (fey langchat): to tap into our higher consciousness and dream big dreams of freedom.
Rosemary (roumarin): to tap into the heart chakra, where we’ll draw the energy we’ll need to carry us forward.
Hibiscus (choublak): to remind us of what’s already ours. liberation is our birthright. 
Parsley (pesi): to purge. to cleanse. to make room for a new way and a new day.

Asé.


In health,
Dr. Naika

Healing with Haitian Herbs Workshop: October 21, 2018

My next Healing with Haitian Treasures workshop is happening next Sunday in Brooklyn New York. You do not want to miss this informative and FUN workshop, that has sold out every single time it's been offered. This is your chance to dive into my "Haitian Treasures" series, but this time in person and in community!


~
You are invited to an interactive experience where you will learn about herbs and then formulate your own medicinal mixture, under the guidance of Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, and Herbalist, Dr. Naika of blog, 'Naika in Balance".

In the first half of this 2 hour workshop, we'll go on an in depth exploration of the herbs we'll be using in the second half. We will discuss the medicinal and socio-cultural properties of the herbs, in addition to the clinical scientific research behind them, what they are used for, and how to use them. The material will be presented in a way that everyone can understand and follow. The herbs selected for this workshop are helpful for overall health maintenance, including but not limited to, detoxification, mood support, digestive health, etc.

During the second half of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to connect with the herbs even deeper and formulate your own herbal remedy based on your individual needs and desires. I will guide you through the process of creating your own medicinal mix. You will also get to taste your herbal beverages, enjoying the creation you just made.

All materials will be provided for you, so just show up ready and willing to learn and to explore. It's recommended that you bring pen and paper to take notes!

Great music will be playing during the second half.
Incense will be burning to create a lovey aroma.
The space is colorful, bright, and inviting.

Come unwind.
Come vibe.
Come release.
Come as you are.


In health,
Dr. Naika

Next Community Acupuncture Workshop on 10/20 at Heal Haus

Peace Naika in Balance family,
I want to share that the next round of monthly community acupuncture will be taking place next Saturday, 10/20 from 2:30-4:45 at Heal Haus!

Community Acupuncture is great because it's more affordable and accessible than private one on one sessions, plus it's done in community!

Keeping a similar theme to the September Community Acupuncture experience, I'll be playing some instrumental reggae and dub music, burning incense and candles, and holding space for your individual and collective healing!

This experience always sells out, so make sure to sign up ASAP and I'll see you there.
Sign up here!

Sneak Peak just for you: Next Level 1 Haitian Herbs Workshop will be happening on October 21st, so stay tuned for that sign up soon as well!



In health,
