Purpose in Perimenopause and Beyond with Renata Atkinson [ONLINE][CANCELED]

May 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join a small, intimate group for a virtual workshop as we nurture our connections with nature, self, and community, explore our desires and intentions for the next phase of life, and learn how herbal medicine can help with physical, emotional, and spiritual transitions. This workshop is designed for people in or in or near the perimenopausal life stage to connect with each other, connect with nature, and gain confidence about navigating this important life transition. Come connect with some fabulous folks who share similar concerns, get acquainted with some of the herbs that are particularly helpful in supporting through the changes and challenges of perimenopause, and learn how to work with these herbs to support your wellbeing. Choose one special ally that you will cultivate a deep relationship with throughout the months ahead and engage in exercises designed to help you feel grounded and more deeply connected with nature.

Benefits

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
