Let's talk plants. Many of us are growing tiny gardens in our apartments these days, and those plants and herbs likely have a lot of healing potential that you may not realize. Over the last few weeks, I've discovered the magic of plants through the book Plant Magic by Christine Buckley. In her book, Buckley, a Brooklynite, reveals how the plants and even weeds growing in our neighborhood could be potent resources for treating bug bites to offering a mood boost in winter months. This introduction to the plant world inspired a chance encounter with Ayurvedic Chef Stephanie Wright.
Join us today at 4:30 p.m. EST on IGTV and learn how to tap into your inner herbalist, and how to eat to maximize the power of plants based on the Ayurvedic tradition. Ayurvedic chef Stephanie Wright will teach us how to harness the magic of the ancient science of longevity. During this workshop, you will learn about principles of the 5,000 year-old Indian tradition of Ayurveda, the qualities of the doshas, vata, pitta and kapha and how they manifest in your body. You will leave this session with a basic understanding of your body type and how you can start using food as your medicine.
