The Well Being's Herbal Allies Workshop Series

Come out and join us!

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 Fairfax County, Virginia, home to over 1 million residents. 

The workshops provide a FREE 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 the Center for the Well Being. 

Workshop attendees learn by hands-on demonstration how to make and use herbal products aligned to the monthly topic.

Topics include: 

  • Self-Care for the Mind, Body and Spirit
  • Seasonal Wellness
  • Herbalism 101
  • Mindfulness
  • Healthy Sleep Habits
  • Ayurveda Basics
  • Daily Self-Care Routines
  • Overcoming Depression
  • Stress Management
  • Living with PTSD
  • Pain Relief
  • Addiction and Recovery
  • Women’s Health
  • Managing the Mind
  • Addressing Aging
  • Holistic Skin Care

Attendees leave with an herbal product - such as a tea, tincture, or capsules – made at 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!

WINTER: A Season for Stillness and Reflection

DATE:  Saturday, December 7th

TIME:  8:45am - 10:00am 

PLACE:  John Marshall Library 

(Meeting Rooms 1 and 2)

6209 Rose Hill Drive

Alexandria, VA 22310  


For December's topic, WINTER:  A Season for Stillness and Reflection, we will look into ways we can keep the Mind, Body and Spirit well as we move into winter and the ending of the year...and decade. We will discuss ways to use this time of typical hibernation to become still so that we can go within ourselves to listen to what our souls are trying to tell us...things we want to change or improve upon as we enter a new year and decade. 

We will also learn about the use of specific herbs - Schisandra, Ashwagandha, Cleavers, Mullein, Echinacea, Calendula, Frankincense, and Patchouli - to take care of us on the inside, to help keep us grounded and connected with the Earth, healthy during the cold season, improve overall health within with adaptogenic herbs, and keep our skin soft and radiant...and how easy and economical it is to make these supportive herbal products at home.

Please reserve your spot to guarantee that we will have enough supplies for everyone who attends.

The workshop is FREE, however we appreciate any and all donations to be able to continue to provide these educational services the community.
