HERBAL HEART MEDICINES: FOLK & PHARMACOLOGICAL ALLIES
TO CLEANSE & STRENGTHEN YOUR HEART
WITH KELSEY BARRETT
Wisdom traditions tell us that the heart is where we integrate Heaven and Earth. Trauma, shock, and life challenges can separate our spirits from resting within the heart. In your session with Kelsey, she’ll incorporate a somatic based inquiry practice to experience the heart center and reveal psycho-emotional influences that create disturbances.
Calling on both folkloric stories and pharmacological effects, together you will build an herbal medicine formula to guide the spirit back into the heart, balancing Heaven and Earth.
