 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

BotanicWise MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference

by Gisele Rinaldi Siebold

The MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference will be celebrating its ninth annual event from September 27 through 29, in Kempton. The event offers a unique opportunity to learn from internationally acclaimed mentors on herbal and natural remedies for better health and wellness.

The pre-conference intensive with Rocio Alarcón, The Magic of Cacao Massage, will be held from 3 to 6 p.m., September 27.

Various workshops will be presented throughout the weekend for participants to learn about how to identify and use plants for healing purposes; learn natural and sustainable methods of healing; experience healing modalities from around the world, such as Ecuador and Belize; connect with like-spirited women; shop for handmade gifts and herbal products; and enjoy delicious organic and nutritious food and teas.

A celebratory dinner, talent show, evening keynote address and Wild Women’s Fire Circle with Suzanna Stone will be held September 28. A cacao ceremony with FreeDom Flowers

eases attendees into the morning on September 29, followed by morning intensives, brunch and afternoon classes. All attendees come together in a closing circle before departure.

“More than 200 women gather each year to learn from the best herbal teachers from around the world. The event has inspired many women to use natural remedies in their self-care, and some women find the inspiration to start their own herbal business, from soap-making, to becoming an herbalist,” shares Charis Lindrooth, founder and organizer. “Find life-long friendships and inspiration to step into your life purpose. Take a break from all the distractions of day-to-day life and find out what really makes your heart sing.”

Full weekend, single-day, elder, student and teen admission options and information about meal plans available online at Location: 83 Community Center Dr., Kempton. For more information, email Charis Lindrooth at [email protected].
