Autumn Garden Wisdom

With Kumudini Shoba

September 19, 2020

Join us in the sweet, woodsy Westgarden for this final class in a series of three 2020 Ayurvedic herbal workshops at the Whidbey Institute with Kumudini Shoba. New registrations are welcome.

When we wake to a chill in the air and see the setting sun a bit earlier in the evening, we know Autumn is upon us. At this time, we transition from the expansive energy of summer into the quiet world of fall and winter. Plants echo this process as their leaves and fruit fall away and they concentrate their energy into their core system, roots. This makes Autumn an ideal time to harvest medicinal roots, because they’re full of a plant’s vital energy. In this class, we will harvest, taste, and get to know the powerful healing roots of the Westgarden. We will also look to Ayurveda as a way to understand the season’s change and to learn how to promote wellness through the darker months ahead.

This class runs from 1 to 4 pm on Saturday, September 19, 2020.
