Root and Nourish Book Club: ALL INCLUSIVE TICKET

June 10, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Abbey Rodriguez  and Jennifer Kurdyla | Root and Nourish Book Club

Now more than ever, our society is being confronted with the repercussions of our long-term disconnection from the rhythms of nature. Indigenous traditions like herbalism and Ayurveda both identify alignment with nature—its rhythms and innate capacity for healing—as a foundation for living an abundant, long, and healthy life. Root & Nourish: An Herbal Cookbook for Women’s Wellness offers a path to remembering our natural state of wholeness through a whole-food, plant-based, gluten-free diet, rich in herbs and spices that support three key areas of health: digestion, mental health, and female reproductive hormonal health.

In this course, we’ll unpack the physical and spiritual mechanisms behind each section of Root & Nourish, go through the relevant herbal actions to support that system, and offer ways to support your herbal “diet” out of the kitchen through the five pillars of health (nutrition, rest and sleep, movement, connection, and spirituality). You’ll come away from each 90-minute session with specific ingredients and recipes to bring balance to your system, and practices for self-care and reflection on how you can live more in harmony with the nature around and inside you.

Some questions we will explore in this sacred container include:

Herbs for Digestion: The Many Facets of Digestion and Turning Meals into Sacred Rituals

Herbs for Mental Health: The Gut-Brain Axis and Microbiome

Herbs for Female Reproductive Hormonal Health: The Relationship Between Stress and your Creative Potential

Herbs for Life: Building a Holistic Lifestyle with Daily and Seasonal Rituals that Nourish the Five Pillars of Health
