Each new season is your chance for a fresh start. Like a deciduous tree, your body is designed to cycle; to ebb, flow and renew with the seasons. To shed periodically, and to grow back stronger and healthier than ever.
It’s easy to fall out of sync, disconnect from nature and lose touch with ourselves. To work too much, exercise too little, eat the wrong foods and grow increasingly pale behind our computer screens…to feel bloated, heavy and sluggish after meals; gain weight that won’t budge or fail to put on healthy weight; to react to seasonal allergies such as itchy eyes, hay fever and skin irritation; to suffer decreased immunity and catch everything going around. To feel tired, flat and grumpy in the mornings, suffer from insomnia and broken sleep; or from anxiety, stress, or to feel overwhelmed, to suffer acne and other conditions.
The good news is, with each new season comes the chance to reset, reconnect and restore your health in just a few short weeks, by implementing a new seasonal ritual of releasing toxins, mindful nutrition and daily self-care practices, employing the transformative power of delicious, vibrant, light and fresh nutrient dense foods and organic herbal cleansing tisanes.
Reconnect with your natural and seasonal rhythm, move in flow with the change of weather, environment, length of days and embrace seasonal produce, returning to the foods that we’ve evolved to eat.

Workshop description: Each day will begin at 10am with morning tea, enjoying Anthia’s tea blends or tisanes. A garden ramble with Anthia and Mickey will follow, punctuated with pauses for Anthia to share her herbal knowledge as you discover medicinal plants and flowers. While you consolidate your notes with Anthia, Mickey will prepare a garden-inspired, long-table lunch for you to enjoy. During the practical afternoon session, Anthia will discuss and demonstrate and you will have the opportunity to make some of those herbal remedies to support seasonal health concerns: herbal tisanes, salts, oils & vinegars, hand & body scrub…a hugely fun component to the day and you will take home the creations you make. The day will draw to an end at 4pm.
