Spring Equinox is around the corner, and I am looking forward to new outdoor art projects and getting my hands in the earth on the reg. With the anticipation of warmer months rattling in my bones, I thought sharing this photo series I did last summer, with two of my favorite local healers, Tara and SaraRose, would help me get through these final dreary days of winter. It was in Tara's garden that I first learned how to harvest and create my own herbal medicine. Tara aka Chickey's Herbals is a local artist, herbalist and yogi and she always has the go to remedies when I'm in a pinch; like when we removed the fifty year old poison ivy jungle from our backyard. We probably went through two entire bottles of topical spray in a month. SaraRose aka Yoga Nature is a massage therapist, tarot reader, herbalist and yogi. She has guided me along my path of herbal medicines, as well as my on going yoga practice. I have been practicing yoga off and on for almost a decade but her spiritual and individualized teachings inspired me to take my practice to the next level. I've made more progress in the last three years than I believed possible. A few massages here and there have certainly helped to keep me moving. Together Tara and SaraRose are a power house of nourishment, energy, empathy and creativity. I feel so lucky to have them in our little community. They are hosting their next Sacred Women Spiral Retreat at the Amethyst Center this May, in Duncannon, PA with a focus on vishuddha (throat) chakra. If you are searching for connection, personal evolution, enlightenment and sisterhood check out what these vivacious women have to offer!
