Hello Everyone!
I pray that your holidays has been well!
Here are a few updates for the coming week:

This week, we’ll be going continuing our study of the herbs that support cellular health and function, by learning about Rosemary.
Here’s a brief summary of Rosemary:
Rosemary seems to increase blood circulation when applied to the scalp, which might help hair follicles grow. Rosemary extract might also help protect the skin from sun damage. People commonly use rosemary for memory, indigestion, fatigue, hair loss, etc.
The bookclub will resume Jan 24, 2022.
We’re still reading through Braiding Sweetgrass, and soon preparing for Medical Apartheid.
If you’re participating, we’ll be continuing on section, “Asters & Goldenrod” our discussion prompt will be:
‘Asters and Goldenrod’ (pp. 39-47) delves into Kimmerer’s need to question and to know about the relationship between these flowers. “It was an architecture of relationships, of connections that I yearned to understand.” (p. 46) She discovered a “lived reciprocity” between asters and goldenrod—“the pairing of purple and gold”. What is the interdependency between humans and plants? And, what happens if we don’t live up to our end of the relationship?
We will resume our Live Medicine Making sessions on Jan 28, 2022. I’ve been able to locate the appropriate hardware for recording these videos, so it should be easier to handle! 
We’re making an Autumn Elixir!
You’ll Need: 
  • Elderberries
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Fresh Ginger Root
  • Rose Hips
  • Hawthorn Berries 
  • Brandy
  • Honey
See you soon!
