Monks Library, 75 Mount Auburn Street, 2nd Floor, HUHS
August 18
Fee: Free (registration required)

A fast-paced, stressful lifestyle can wreak havoc upon our physical and emotional well-being. While lifestyle changes are often the key to managing stress levels, there are many wonderful herbs that may help support us in making positive life changes. In this class we will cover practical herbal remedies that support the nervous system and help us to shift from a "fight or flight" state of being into a more relaxed state. We will review and sample relaxing nervine herbs that many people find useful for dealing with stress, anxiety and sleep issues.

 

 

I began to practice meditation every morning after this class. I found out that my life is going to a higher level. The instructor is very patient and warm-hearted. Thank you so much!
