We can discuss common questions, more unusual health concerns, the culinary and/or creative use of plants, and more. No topic is off-limits. Mrs. Sims has practiced herbalism for over 40 years and serves professional and private clients throughout the country.

leafOctober 21st — Personal Development and Intentional Living

Often, we know what we intend our lives be. Our life's experiences have created numerous intentions within us. Most of these intentions are hidden from our consciousness. You have intended to move you towards the person you want to be and to achieve the things you want. Sometimes there may be a point or two that seems too difficult to move through. When you haven't been able to move past a point no matter what you do, a hidden intention is most likely the case. Intentions are often not rational or logical. They are not like beliefs or thoughts that can be changed. The primitive brain creates intentions to keep you safe. Sometimes acknowledgement is enough to remove them. I will demonstrate, with the help of a volunteer from the audience, how to find hidden intentions, to acknowledge them and then convert them into a supportive intention.

leafOctober 28th — Reiki and Emotional Freedom Technique

Bhadra, a highly sensitive empath, has a natural gift of being able to feel energy. She uses this to help clients find and release the energetic blocks that sometimes prevent them from moving forward. Drawing from an extensive toolbox of healing modalities including Reiki and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), she combines her feelings and intuition to find the best way to help each client. EFT releases blocks, trauma, pain, and other issues. Reiki washes away the energetic traces of them and restores balance to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Come and hear about both techniques and how they can work for you. The whole group will benefit from a healing demonstration.

leaf November 4th — Waking Up to our Colorful World: How to Use Color in the Everyday for Flow, Harmony & Replenishment

Color saved my life. Literally. While sick & undiagnosed for four years, I craved colorful food, began making really vibrant art, and traveled to vibrant holistic countries (New Zealand, Byron Bay,Aus., India, and Bali). I was finally diagnosed by a functional MD doctor in Austin with black mold poisoning. Inspired by my life-changing personal experience with the body-mind-spirit transformative effects of color, I became a certified color practitioner where I now hold space for color therapy sessions five-minutes from the Herb Bar. Color is a powerful tool to stimulate energy flow in the body-mind-spirit. Developing a relationship with color reconnects us with our inner voice. I want to teach you how to really perceive color at not only a physical level, but also a mental/emotional/spiritual dynamic. Color can be used to detox, nourish and rebalance our energy.

leafNovember 11th — Realign with Natural Rhythms to Restore Balance

Symptoms are a sign from the body that it needs something. All symptoms are a communication, usually a nutritional deficiency or an organ dysfunction. The body is designed to flow and must be able to do so to heal itself. We can restore this flow with natural medicine: food, herbal remedies, homeopathy, whole food supplements, and mindfulness practices. Come learn ways to balance your body by realigning with your natural rhythms.
