Ayurveda for the Western Herbalist

Ayurveda is the unique 5,000-year-old healing tradition of India.  Beyond being a system of medicine and healing, Ayurveda is a way of life - outlining health as a state of individual balance, unique for each of us.  Learn to assess Ayurvedic constitutions (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and how to care for each in both balance and dis-ease.  Self-care strategies will include lifestyle, diet and herbal therapeutics including how to apply Ayurvedic energetics to the use of western herbs.  A constitutional framework and knowledge of how to apply herbal energetics is what separates a good herbalist from a great herbalist - learn to bring a level of depth and clarity to your herbal practice that only 5,000 years of wisdom can deliver!  This introductory workshop will be information-packed and tons of FUN - enlightening your personal health and the health and personality of others.

MY STORY…

People always ask where I studied, how I learned what I know and how I became an herbalist. It wasn’t until I had been practicing as an herbalist for several years that I began to piece together my entire story. On the first day of class in my herbal apprenticeship program, when we introduce ourselves, this is the story I tell my students – I can’t help but start at the beginning; everything seems to count.

I grew up in a small town in Western Massachusetts. My most vivid childhood memories are of being outside. I used to hang out with my dad while he cut, split and stacked cordwood for the winter. I remember the simple satisfaction that I got from staring up at the trees, making things out of snow and playing in the leaves. I remember crawling on my hands and knees beneath the mountain laurel looking for treasures and special places. Tree stumps, gnarly branches, big rocks and jackpots of mushrooms or cool-looking leaves were the highlight of any afternoon. I thought everything was special – every part of the natural world was a treasure, and I was constantly in a state of admiration.

My step grandmother was very ill for most of my childhood. She had been told many times by many doctors that she was going to die. In her quest to live, she became a self-made scholar of the body, natural medicine and alternative therapies. Getting better was her life, and I was fascinated to listen. Her stories were my first introduction to anatomy and physiology as well as many vitamins, minerals, algaes, herbs and the pendulum. Sometimes, when I think about health and the body, I can still hear her voice in my head.

I had other mentors too. The mother of my younger brother’s best friend, Jean Bergstrom, spent many years studying herbal medicine with Kate Gilday. Jean later went on to become a practitioner of plant spirit medicine; she used to practice doing pulse diagnosis on me at soccer games. Jean was the first to teach me how to identify plants (I especially remember the poison ivy lesson!), and I took my first herbal class with her when I was 13.

I fell in love with the kitchen in the later years of elementary school, when I remember rushing through my homework so that I could help my mom cook dinner. In the kitchen, she taught me what she knew and gave me a great sense of comfort in moving around the space and making food appear. Later, while attending college at UC Berkeley, I lived in a large co-op where I cooked for two years in an industrial kitchen. During my years at the co-op I would make dinners and lunches for 100 or more of my “housemates” at a time! It was here in Northern California that I began to formally study Herbal medicine with Kami McBride – traveling to the dessert, mountains, coastal hills and river valleys to learn the patterns and actions of native, naturalized and cultivated plants and their amazing healing gifts. During these years, while I was still receiving the tail end of my college education, I reconnected with the plant world of my childhood, enriching and deepening my love for the smells and sounds (and of course the magic!) of the natural world.

It didn’t take long for my passion for herbal medicine to meet my busy hands in the kitchen. I began to cook medicinally, using herbs and spices that were appropriate for the occasion, the season and the food. The powers of not just herbs and spices, but grains, nuts, vegetables, fruits, meats and all other ingredients began to appear to me. Through these experiences I gained a deep respect for the adage, food is our medicine. After graduating from college I dove head first into the world of food, volunteering and apprenticing at local kitchens and restaurants and experimenting in my own kitchen. I spent time learning about nutrition in addition to cultural food preparation and cultivation rituals from around the world. I was, and still am, interested in how the simplicity of increasing intention and awareness around food and our relationship to it can promote wellbeing and stimulate the kind of self-respect that fuels and empowers health and healing. I always tell my students that it was applying herbal medicine in the kitchen that gave me my first clinical experience – as I cooked for myself and others I observed how food and our relationship to it could nourish, nurture and heal. A kitchen witch is no joke!

Thyme Herbal was born in the spring of 2008 while I was living in Oakland California. For the first year, I mostly taught cooking classes with an herbal emphasis and did some private cooking for families in the Bay Area. A year later I moved back to Western Massachusetts where I intensified my study of Ayurveda and Western Herbalism and began to study Chinese Medicine. I now have a private herbal practice and an herbal education center (Thyme Herbal) at my homestead in Conway, Massachusetts. While I don’t do private cooking anymore, my work with food, nutrition and dietary applications of herbal medicine is still a central part of my clinical practice and my teaching approach.

Herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine practiced on the planet, and it has been largely practiced as an art form – learned through observation and experience and passed down from one person to another. It is this history of herbal medicine in practice that most clearly illustrates my vision for herbalism in our country today. Herbal medicine doesn’t belong to doctors or herbalists or authors, it belongs to everyone. I work in service to the vision that our society as groups of individuals and communities deserves to hold the wisdom, knowledge and self-empowerment necessary to practice herbal medicine every day in our own homes.

In the same way that I believe everything about the food we eat informs its nutritional quality – including where it is grown, how it is harvested, how it is prepared and how it is enjoyed – I also believe that all layers of life, all forms of doing, being, thinking and feeling, inform our state of health and wellbeing. With this lens, I can expand the idea that “food is our medicine.” Food is representative of all that we ingest, absorb and let go of. In this spirit a hug can be as nutritious as a bowl of greens and the preparation, intention and love behind a medicine is as important as the medicine itself.

Evening with Your Ancestors

Messages of Love
an evening with Your Ancestors

October is said to the be the month where the veil is the thinnest between the worlds.  Join us at Tangled Roots Herbal in an intimate gathering for an evening of messages from your loved ones on the other side.

You will learn the various ways that they communicate to us in some extraordinary ways.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing messages with you from your loved ones, confirming that our Souls do live on!

Eternally yours,
         Lori Haynes

*If it has been 3 months or less since your loved one has transitioned, it's best to wait a bit longer to allow yourself time to grieve and heal.

Cost: $30 per person.  Non-Refundable.

Vibrational Healing Sessions “Everything in life is vibration.” ~Albert Einstein Just as a pebble creates vibrations that appear as ripples, which travel outward in a body of water, frequencies create vibrations that travel outward that manifests as health or dis-ease in your mind and body.

Vibrational medicine helps ‘shake’ up this energy and get you back into alignment. During a private one-on-one session with Jamie, she will ask you about any areas in your body or life where you are feeling ‘stuck’. Jamie will then use her sacred medicine tools (drums, rattles, feather fans, etc) to help move this energy. Upon completion of these sessions, clients have expressed that they feel lighter, more in alignment, more focused. The use of vibration to heal is not something new; it has been used for centuries and is a true body-mind-spirit therapy.

$127/hour

Angela even shows how she incorporates vital feminine Earth energy into her healing practice. This level is for those who want to study Reiki in a deeper way, and those looking to become Reiki Masters.

If you are certified from a different instructor and wish to skip Reiki I with Angela, we will need the name and contact information of your previous teacher to reach out and compare courses of study.

Angela even shows how she incorporates vital feminine Earth energy into her healing practice. This level is for those who want to study Reiki in a deeper way, and those looking to become Reiki Masters.

Students must be certified in Reiki I, although they do not need to be certified by Angela to take this class. If you are certified from a different instructor and wish to skip Reiki I with Angela, we will need the name and contact information of your previous teacher to reach out and compare courses of study. It is imperative that certain concepts are taught proficiently in Reiki I before you can learn and apply the concepts of Reiki II. If your previous instructor is unavailable for contact, please reach out to Angela personally (angela@simply-sacred.com) to schedule an in person interview to determine if you have a solid enough grasp on the concepts of Reiki I to move forward.

Class will run on 3 Thursdays: July 26, August 2, and August 16. Class will run from 6pm to 9pm each day. There will be assignments in between classes, and all work must be completed by August 16 to receive your level 2 certification. Please do not enroll if you cannot make all 3 classes: inquire with Angela about private study in this case. Class size is restricted to 8 seats, so enroll sooner rather than later.

The class is $150 and includes a printed Reiki II manual, plus various handouts throughout the course. Tuition must be paid in full before class starts. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to save your spot. Please plan accordingly.

*Payment must be made when registering and all payments are non-refundable.

How to Discover and Control your Empathic Abilities

Do you sometimes get overwhelmed when surrounded by emotional people? Do you feel like you “take on” the pain and suffering of those around you? Do you have a difficult time discerning your feelings and emotions from other people’s? Have you been told you’re “too sensitive”?

You may have unchecked empathic ability!

This class is for the “sensitive souls”. Emotional sensitivity is an immense strength, not a weakness. It’s a gift that, once you’re fully grounded in your own energies, can open your vast abilities and skills.

In this class, you’ll learn what an empath is, how to tell if you are one, and what you can do about it. Lori will walk the class through some exercises to find and build upon our centers of strength. Finally, we’ll explore tools and techniques to help control our empathic ability, and you’ll leave with action steps you can take in the real world to harness and use your newfound superpower to benefit your life and the lives around you.

Don’t let your empathic sensitivity hold you back in the world; learn to control it as a force for good!

Monthly Women's Circle

Join us as we embark on a spiritual journey of discovering Stories!  We will talk about how the stories we are told throughout our life shape who we are, how some don't resonate with our soul and how we can create a new way of looking at our stories or how we can choose to completely re-write the story so that it serves our highest self.

In Women's Circle we aspire to support one another as women to help each other heal and grow and to send positive/healing energy to our Mother Earth.  Each month we explore a different topic.  This is a wonderful, powerful group of women.  We hope you will join us.  

Facilitators donate their time and resources to offer this as a free program.  However, we do accept donation in lieu of payment for our time preparing and supplies we may need.  We choose a charity each month in our community to donate all monies accepted for attendance.

Donations accepted for this event will go to : Bridges of Nashua
A wonderful local Women's Organization

Reiki I Certification Course

Do you feel like you're missing something in your life? Are you searching for a deeper spiritual practice? Have you always been intrigued by Reiki and the people who practice it?

Reiki is a gentle form of universal energy healing that's extremely popular with new age and spiritual healers, both novice and expert. One of the joys of Reiki is that anyone can learn, and it can be applied to an untold number of lifestyles, healing practices, and situations. Reiki is used in spiritual practices, wellness centers, and even hospitals. It's used to manage pain, chronic illness, acute injury, stress and mental disorders, emotional blockages, energetic stagnation, and much more. The application of Reiki is only bound by your imagination.

Many Reiki courses are taught in a single afternoon, but Tangled Roots Herbal and your Reiki instructor believe that to truly understand, grasp, and implement a deep, meaningful Reiki practice, it's imperative to develop a relationship with your Master and with Reiki itself. This course is structured in such a way to allow more time to grasp and practice the concepts you'll learn, and to grow connections with your instructor and fellow students that will remain with you for the rest of your Reiki journey.

In this 4 week course, you'll learn:

·       the history of Reiki and how it made its way to the US

·       the spiritual and practical principles of Reiki

·       the biological and energetic systems affected by Reiki energy

·       practices that blend with Reiki

·       how to perform Reiki on yourself and others

·       and more!

The course consists of one class a week for 3 weeks. Week four will feature a written exam and a hands on practical in the form of a donation Reiki clinic. After the clinic, students will graduate with their Reiki 1 certification and be fully attuned and ready to take their practice into the world.

Learning Reiki may be for you if:

o   You feel a desire to help & heal people

o   You yearn for a greater connection to yourself and the universal energies around you

o   You want a gentle, non-invasive way to keep yourself and your family healthy

o   You wish to add a deeper layer to your spiritual practice

o   You want to add a healing modality to your repertoire that integrates seamlessly with other touch or emotional therapies

2018 Class Dates:

March 22, March 29th, April 5th, Final Class Reiki Share, where you will practice on customers.

To register, please contact Tangled Roots Herbal. The course costs $120 (including material fees) if paid up front and in advance. Payment plans are available; please inquire.  

About the teacher: Angela DiMare-Messier, LMT, RMT has been studying and practicing Reiki since 2010. She has studied with Lourdes Grey at the John Harvey Grey Center for Reiki Healing in Jaffrey NH and reached the level of Master/Teacher with Lisa Powers, private instructor. She uses Reiki and energy healing daily in her home and in her professional massage & bodywork business.

 

As a lifelong believer in holistic wellness, Angela is a natural resource when learning to take better care of your whole self. Since an early age, she gravitated towards nature and natural medicine to treat the whole body, instead of masking symptoms with more traditional means.

Angela is now a massage therapist, Reiki master, and herbalist, with an extensive background in energy work, aromatherapy, meditation, journeying, self care, magick & spirituality, and other holistic techniques. She is truly delighted to have the opportunity to teach Reiki in this unique class structure, to help bring Reiki into a modern, accepted place in health and wellness.

About the teacher: Angela DiMare-Messier, LMT, RMT has been studying and practicing Reiki since 2010. She has studied with Lourdes Grey at the John Harvey Grey Center for Reiki Healing in Jaffrey NH and reached the level of Master/Teacher with Lisa Powers, private instructor. She uses Reiki and energy healing daily in her home and in her professional massage & bodywork business.

 

As a lifelong believer in holistic wellness, Angela is a natural resource when learning to take better care of your whole self. Since an early age, she gravitated towards nature and natural medicine to treat the whole body, instead of masking symptoms with more traditional means.

She is truly delighted to have the opportunity to teach Reiki in this unique class structure, to help bring Reiki into a modern, accepted place in health and wellness.
