Upcoming Event: Herbal Medicine Workshop

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".

This workshop is inspired by my "Haitian Treasures" blog series, where I share knowledge about the medicinal and socio-cultural elements of herbs commonly used by Haitians, the Haitian Diaspora, and the greater Afro-Caribbean community. 

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 concoctions based on your individual needs and desires.  I will guide you through the process of creating your own medicinal mix. All materials will be provided for you, so just show up ready and willing to learn and to explore. 

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.

Event cost: $35
Space is limited to create an intimate experience, so kindly RSVP by April 28th.

Please note: The same material that was covered in the December Level 1 workshop will be covered in this workshop.

The "Haitian Treasures" series explores the magnificent benefits and uses of Haiti's natural resources, which I call "Haitian Treasures" because they are truly national gems.  Naïka in Balance is the premiere source for information on healing herbs used by Haitians. In this series, I explore the tie between Haiti's natural resources and natural, traditional, and holistic healing.
