Twin Star Herbal Education 13 Moons – A Women’s Healing Circle
Begins January 1, 2014

Since the dawn of our existence women have been gathering together as daughters, sisters, mothers and as healers. Powerful stories have been shared, tears have been shed and many magical moments of healing, strength and love have occurred. It is in honor of this ancient tradition that the 13 Moons – A Women’s Healing Circle has been created. This group will meet monthly over the course of one year. The circle will begin in January of each year and will meet one evening a month continuing into the following January. Under these 13 moons we will come together as women and healers. Each moon we will explore a variety of topics including: sacred healing, women’s plant allies and the wise woman tradition. We will also create rituals for honoring our moon cycle, birth, death, divorce and more and will focus on positive manifestations, cutting cords and fully explore our role as women, sisters and community healers. The circle will be a private and sacred group, open to women only.

Herb justice is a belief that all communities should have access to high quality locally grown herbal plants and remedies. Students in the Herb Justice Seed to Market program will learn first hand how to grow, tend and harvest dozens of medicinal herbs that are grown at Wassaic Community Farm, in Wassaic NY. Participants will also work closely with the diversity of medicinal and edible plants that grow wild throughout our area. Throughout the program we will use these herbs to prepare herbal teas, salves and tinctures and bring these remedies to our rural and urban neighboring communities through various farmers markets. The Seed to Market participants will actively engage in the Herb Justice concept by learning to share herbal healing with the public regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, ability, religion, or community.
