ANDREA REISEN

Class: Growing Medicinal Herbs and Mushrooms. How to start your own herb farm and herbal medicine enterprise.  With over 30 years of experience, you will learn from the best.  From growing, to product making to marketing herbs, Andrea shares her wealth of knowledge. 

 

Part 1 for beginners and intermediate growers/ gardeners who want to learn about plant medicine cultivation and to expand their growing capacity and gardens. 

Part 2 for advanced growers/gardeners wanting to take their love of plant medicine to next level and make a livelihood. 

Andrea Reisen is the co-creator of a 30-acre farm is located in the hamlet of Wallace, near Avoca, in the beautiful Finger Lakes of western New York. The farm is a dream come true for her family. 

 

Their collective goal has always been to live a simple, gentle, fun-filled life on the land, raising a family in harmony with all of creation. They have been blessed to be caretakers of this land since 1982, raising our five children here, and now two of our grandchildren live here with their Mom and Uncle Bill.  We believe by working the land organically and biodynamically, being in rhythm with the land, we are able to harvest the very finest quality, high-energy medicinal herbs. We make teas, tinctures (extracts), salves, creams, infused oils, liniment, and flower essences with these herbs.  Andrea and her husband, Matthias believe- We take care of the land and the land takes care of us."

The plant world offers us an abundant array of gifts allowing us to take ownership of our own healing.  These gifts don’t just apply to our physical selves however,  the healing energy of plants also affects our emotional, mental, and spiritual selves.  Plants have been used for centuries to enhance spirituality and our awareness of our connection to all life.  Used properly herbs can become cherished travel companions as you walk your sacred path.

 

"The plants really do love us. They want to take care of us. They want to help us. They just wait for us to come. They open this store-house of health for us, that we can't even imagine."

Lunarina.jpeg
LUNARINA

Class:having a better understanding on your cycle and how it relates to the moon. Red Tent offering sacred space.

Lunarina is a holistic health and wellness platform guiding women and non-binary folks through the story of their cycles to define and claim a power of their womanhood.

Lunarina mission is to help women to live in sync with the natural rhythms of their bodies, their communities and the planet. We gather together to help each other to connect deeply to our hearts, our wombs and the wisdom they hold. Traditionally this has been done in circles. Moon circles, Red Tents, song circles, dance circles, sewing circles...women have been circling for thousands of years, sharing, creating, connecting and empowering each other.We circle to claim our feminine essence, as it is amplified when we are together.

We circle to witness and celebrate the cycles of life-birth, death, rebirth and hold each other through seasons of our life.We circle to claim our divinity, our connection to the Goddess, the Mother to us all.We circle to claim our humanity, allowing ourselves to retreat, restore and replenish.We circle to claim our bodies and our cycles as sacred.

For the first time in the known history of humanity more people live in cities than off the land. The speed of life is becoming faster and faster. It is more difficult to be intimately connected to cycles of nature and time. Our understanding of time from cyclical and linear has become predominantly linear resulting in obsessively goal driven culture. Many of us struggle with an impossible belief of always living at the peak of our abilities. This makes us see our menstruation as an inconvenience rather than a part of our monthly cycle with built in times to rest and nourish ourselves. Lunarina inspires to empower women to discover the wisdom of their bodies and live in harmony with the rhythms of their cycles.

Lunarina team is putting together an app with meditative journeys based on lunar and menstrual cycles. They are also working on building a marketplace of spiritual lifestyle products featuring artisans and small creators from the sisterhood circle. All together Lunarina is  evoking the feminine power birthing a new world.

Heart to heart, womb to womb, we are building a more compassionate world.

Following a desire to truly understand human physiology and then pathology she continued her studies, receiving a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Master’s Degree in Science as a Physician Assistant, both at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY.  Since graduating she has worked at a hospital in Syracuse with multiple physicians and surgeons covering Internal Medicine, Neurosurgery, Orthopedic, and Vascular Surgery services.

She offered the community the highest quality local herbs, exotic herbal blends, and teas but closed the doors to the in-person apothecary in 2013. She specializes in herbal health care, education, and consultation and continues private consultation services. She utilizes her knowledge in both medical and herbal pharmacology, herbal therapeutics, and herbs as nutrients to treat each client with a unique approach specific to their needs and desires.  She has a solid understanding of both western medicine and herbal therapy. Herbs hold ancient nutrients when introduced into the body may create profound support of the body system or organs in need of care; giving daily nourishment to attain vitality and health. Herbs are the ancient food group! Kara feels local plants provide the highest quality herbal therapeutics and also hopes to keep local economies thriving through initiatives to help people become herbal growers.

Donnia Anastasia

Class:  Instructing and demonstrating how to create a simple but profound healing salve and discussing Ayurveda along the way. Each person will go home with at least 1, possibly 2 tubes of healing salve. 

Writing a bio is hard. Lets get that out of the way now. I live a quiet, simple life, off-grid with my husband and pup. What i do is who i am, the two are not separate. Over the course of 3 decades, I practice the Art of Living, through Ayurveda, manual therapies and wild herbalism. Its very messy and very imperfect.  I practice these things daily, as i am certain there is more i do not know than actually know. All i know for certain, is that if it makes sense via my senses and intuition, then it will find its way to me and catch hold.
I believe learning everyday is important and that practicing everyday is just as important.
Because of this (and although i hold dozens of them in the healing and graphic arts) i do not believe certificates and licenses define us and so, call me Donnia Anastasia. That is who i am. I am honored to be a part of this gathering.
