There is just something about the plant world that is magical -- and whether you have researched a lot or a little about it, it’s calling to you right now.

 

Witches. Midwives. Wise women. Those that live at the edge of society and the wildness of the woods. Maybe you hear the call of them deep through your veins, through time and history, and something inside of you is pulling you to heed that call.

Maybe you’re in a place where you worry for the world around you. You feel the hurting and the pain and pulse of an earth that is calling out for healing. And you feel that call for healing inside of you, too, and know they’re related.

Maybe you’re ready for healing. For balance. For a way to treat overwhelm, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and mood imbalances that truly nourishes you on all levels.

Sweet Serenity - 4 Weeks to Overcome Overwhelm, Soothe Stress, Ease Anxiety & Sleep Deeply with Smart, Soulful Herbal Medicine.


Sweet Serenity is a 4-week deep dive on how to create mental, emotional, and soulful wellness through the potent healing power of medicinal herbs, food, and simple, daily ritual. You’ll learn how to create infusions, tonics, and practices that serve you to assist with your health and wellbeing.

Together, we'll explore natural botanical medicines that help with both the symptoms and root causes of anxiety, depression, overwhelm, irritability, fatigue, burn-out, insomnia, and daily, chronic stress.

Whether you’re suffering from a lifelong illness or simply going through a stressful period in your life, you'll learn how to bring herbs into your daily routine in an intelligent, intuitive way and create new patterns of balance, ease, confidence, and joy.

You'll also learn about the plants that can recalibrate your hormones (because cortisol, insulin, and thyroid hormone all have a huge impact on your mind and heart), give you back your energy, and help you connect to all that is sweet in the world once again-- even (or especially!) in these hard times.

At the end of this course, you’ll come out of this with both spiritually-inspired guidance and also the practical, effective action items and recipes you need to start feeling better immediately, and also nourish long-term wellness and healing for mind and heart, body and soul..

Own your magic.

Show up for the things that matter most.

Soulfully. Aligned with nature. Wholehearted.

Here's what we’ll cover in this four week intensive...

Week One:  Soothing our Stress with Deep Immune Tonics

  • Stress is the root cause of many other challenges we experience in our minds and hearts, especially Anxiety, Depression, Overwhelm, and Sleep Issues. New science shows us that stress (and diet) has the power to “turn on” and “turn off” genetic markers for long-term, serious health challenges in mindy and body.

  • Stress causes inflammation, hormone imbalances (we’ll talk about why that matters for overwhelm, anxiety, depression, etc), insomnia, weight gain, and many of the other common things we’re wrestling with.

  • Tackling many of our lifestyle stressors (work stress, lack of sleep, new baby, lack of exercise, food choices) can take weeks or months to course correct and transform. Deep Immune Tonics immediately turn down the body’s volume dial on stress, while providing balance and inner stability to actually make the changes we need to make over the long-term.

  • 9 Herbs of the Week: Ashwaganda, Shatavari, Holy Basil, Siberian Ginseng, Lion's Mane, Reishi, Macuna, Schisandra, and Rhodiola

Week Two:  Crafting a Daily Ritual for Maximum Sanity & Soul

  • Creating a daily infusion: the missing link in that will ensure you’re getting the missing phytonutrients that can  lead to anxiety, depression, and seasonal depression.

  • The plants on your plate: a simple detox plan that will help you uncover hidden food sensitivities, restore blood sugar balance, shed a couple of pounds, and stabilize your mood.

  • A sweet, whole-hearted meditation technique to still your mind, connect you to your heart, and create spaciousness within so you can really own your magic and throw yourself into your projects with abandon.

  • 9 Herbs of the Week: Oatstraw, Nettle, Red Clover, Lemon Balm, Red Raspberry, Linden,  Chickweed, Marshmallow, Tumeric.

Week Three: Nourishing Deep Sleep & Banishing Anxiety with Calming Nervine Herbs.

  • Insomnia, anxiety and overwhelm often have a similar root cause: our nervous systems are constantly on high-alert (or too frequently stimulated). Nervine herbs soothe, balance, and relax the nervous system, bringing true healing to our hearts and easing our minds from tension and worry.

  • 9 Anti-Anxiety and Sleep-Promoting herbs: Kava, Valerian, Passionflower, California Poppy, Chamomile, Motherwort, Skullcap, Lavender, and Rose.

  • We’ll begin playing with herbal combinations, and how herbs can help other herbs work better and better.

Week Four: Creating Your Personal Apothecary for Heart & Body, Mind & Soul

  • Bringing it all together into a personal apothecary that meets your unique needs and the needs and desires of your family

  • Taking your burgeoning herbal practice to the next level, whether that is in your own healing, or taking it out into your community.

  • We'll also touch on the heart herbs -- those that help us in times of sorrow, grief, depression, betrayal and heartache.

  • 9 New Herbs this Week, unique to you and your apothecary!

FAQ

This isn’t the best time for me. When will you be offering this course again?

Honestly, I really can’t say. My schedule is quite full through the rest of 2017 and the beginning of 2018. Certainly if there’s a big enough response, I’ll do everything in my power to offer it again, but at the moment this is the only spot in my calendar for this course.


Will the virtual group sessions be recorded? What if take the live class and have to miss one?

Yes, they’ll be recorded. Anyone who misses a live class can catch the virtual class recording of the lecture.


Can I choose to “add on” the Sweetly Supported portion after the course gets started?

Sure thing-- if I have any spots left! I only have space in my schedule for about 10 folks to take me up on the “Sweetly Supported” one-on-one option, and once they’re gone, they’re gone for this round. I do expect them to sell out, because I’m offering them with a great discount for this program (25%) and my usual cohort of folks may be quick to grab them up. But it never hurts to ask! Please reach out if that’s something you’re interested in.


Do you offer refunds?

I’m happy to offer you a 100% back, no questions asked refund for the first week of the program. (I know it can be hard to dip your toe into something new with a new person)


What if I have other questions?

Please contact us! Drop us an email at herbwyfe@newmoonapothecary, and either me or my assistant will get back to you, lickety-split.
