A New Project for Women
A Note from Charis
I am sharing an excerpt from my new blog, inviting those of you interested in sustainable living and natural health to join an online community of like-minded women:
"For a long time I have craved community. Women who love plants. Women who want to be outside. Women who believe in making the world a better place. Women who love peace, nature and natural healing. Women who stand up for what they believe in. Women who crave community.
This was the driving force behind the impetus to establish the MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference. I simply wanted a forum close to home where women could support each other in their quest for life purpose and healing with plants. That may sound like a pretty narrow niche, but it has happened. Every autumn when the leaves are falling on the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside more than 200 women gather on a 90 acre farm. Most of these women I only see once a year, at this event, and yet the friendship grows, and the deep connection of sisterhood remains. If you have never partaken in an event such as this, I can only tell you that it feels like coming home. The incredible happiness and enthusiasm of these women radiate a powerful energy of healing, that I hope endures long after the last tent is folded up and put away.
After five years of successful gatherings, I am taking the next step. I am creating an online community, a forum where we can watch the progress of those who are following their dreams, learn from each other, inspire each other, share hopes and dreams.
I am naming this group “Ginger Juice,” mostly because I like the name, I’m passionate about ginger as medicine, and also because it just says something about the fun of getting together. I even had fun creating the logo at GraphicSprings.
For now Ruzuku
will host the group, allowing us to get to know each other and have monthly online “Juice Cafes” where we can talk shop, invite teachers share wisdom and keep the energy going in the right direction.
Do you know anyone who might need this? I am hoping you do! To make the juice, we need the ginger - there ain’t no group, if no one shows up! If you’d like to give this a try, and see if it feels like a fit for you, then join me on this maiden voyage of online community.
The cost to join? FREE! The reason to join? You crave the support and friendship of like-minded women, and you love plants!
What do you get by joining?
- Access to a private Facebook group, where I will be fully present
- Access to an interview of Tammi Sweet - an amazing herbalist and teacher
- Access to a monthly “Juice Cafe,” with guest teachers, Q&A sessions, and who knows what fun?
