The Moon + You with Tamara
Tuning into the cycles and transits of the moon can give us more insight into ourselves and the world around us.
In this workshop, we’ll look at the various moon phases, and its passage through the signs of the zodiac throughout a lunar cycle. All of these changes influence our biological, mental and emotional rhythms, just as they affect the ocean tides and the growth cycles of plants. Insights into this can help us determine optimal timing for various endeavours, and give us a new perspective to view how we feel in different situations, on different days.
We’ll look at the moon’s effect on all of us as a whole, as well as its unique effects on each of us individually. We’ll also look at examples of herbs, foods and other practices that we can use to help balance or enhance the moon’s influences.
As scheduled, $35/person Register
