MOMCares Healing Circle

Our monthly healing circle is gearing up for an enlightening evening this month as we invite Shannon Winston to present to us in the spirit of Herbalism. As mothers, we may be looking for new ways to heal ourselves and our families. Sometimes we need only reach as far as our cabinets to find relief. Shannon will guide us through a workshop that explores herbal remedies for some of our most common ailments. We will discuss stress relief, anxiety relief, and health supported by herbs. We will each walk away with our own individual herbal mixture to take home.  

Join us this month as we continue to cultivate community and wellness among ourselves!

Dinner and childcare will be provided. This event is FREE but registration is required for this event.
