The Well Being’s Herbal Allies Workshop Series is a series of FREE monthly workshops offered on the first Saturday of each month beginning in September 2019 through the end of 2020 to the local community in the Washington, DC area.
The workshops provide an educational resource on ways we can empower ourselves through using complementary and alternative approaches to holistic health and wellness as well as the healing and nourishing benefits and uses of herbs in our daily lives.
Each workshop is presented by a service provider affiliated with Center for the Well Being and attendees learn by hands-on demonstration how to make and use herbal products aligned to the monthly topic.
Attendees can leave with an herbal product - tea, tincture, capsule, oil – made for the workshop. They also take with them the knowledge of the beneficial properties of the herbs used, how to prepare and use the product at home, and an opportunity to purchase additional herbs and supplies from the Center, thereby generating revenue from sales to supplement donations received from The Well Being's Herbal Allies Workshop Series project.
We hope to see you there!

For October's workshop, Seasonal Wellness: Staying Healthy, we will look into ways we can support our immune system holistically - mind, body, spirit - as we move into Fall and the colder months.
We will also learn:
- how to best take care of ourselves on the inside AND outside during this time of the year
- about specific herbs and seasonal plants that strengthen our immune system response and how best to use them.
All donations for this event (and all of our events during this time) go towards our AFFORDABLE ACCESS PROGRAM and FROM THE COMMUNITY APOTHECARY initiatives which are providing FREE services and distributing FREE Herbal Care Packages to those in need in our local communities in the Washington, DC area during the COVID-19 crisis.
