In traditional Chinese medicine, the heart is said to correspond to the emotion joy. In many traditional cultures, the seat of perception, of experiencing the world, of communication with others is said to be positioned not in our brains but in our hearts.
Many plants that are considered cardioprotectives are also plants that tend to broaden our field of perception, open our channels of communication, lift our moods, usher in happiness, joy.
Join herbalist, holistic nutritionist and cook Lauren Haddad-Olivet on Saturday, February 24th for an herbal medicine making workshop where we’ll explore heart medicine and make a few herbal remedies for easing depression, getting through grief and heartbreak, bringing in joy.
Get hands-on and learn how to make:
- Rose petal and hawthorn berry herbal honey
- Linden flower and violet leaf “Grief Relief” herbal tea

Sip on a mug of herbal hot chocolate and reclaim healing traditions that have been passed down through the centuries. Learn how to use plants as medicine and support yourself and your community.
