Free! 4th Annual Empowered Womyn’s Health workshop March 24

March 10, 2012

The Bloom Collective hosts a free workshop, Empowered Women’s Health, 1 to 5 p.m. Sat. March 24 in the Steepletown Center, 671 Davis NW., where the Bloom Collective is located (corner of 5th & Davis).  The workshop will share information on alternative practices and philosophies around the issues of women’s healthcare as well as provide a safe space for women to share health wisdom with each other.

Such wisdom was the basis for good health in times past, before healthcare became a commodity on the stock market and a product on the pharmacy shelf.

The workshop is intentionally free because access to health information, or healthcare for that matter, should not be based on a woman’s ability to pay.

This year’s sessions include:

  • CLOTHES ENCOUNTERS: HOW TO MEND & REPURPOSE YOUR GARMENTS with seamstress Camille Metzger, proprietor of Blue Marble Threads
  • DON’T BUDGET MY BUDGET with Roni VanBuren, community liaison, Our Kitchen Table
  • YOGA NIDRA DEEP RELAXATION WITH INTENTION with Stelle, from The Bloom  Collective
  • An Introduction To Womb Wellness  with Juliea Paige Bearth, Doula
  • SIMMER AWAY STRESS: COOKING FOODS THAT DETOX THE BODY AND RELIEVE THE SOUL. With Nancy Rutledge, Chef, CC Dining Services.

Throughout the afternoon, Doula and certified Reiki practitioner, Afiya Orara, will provide mini-Reiki sessions and Rachael Hamilton will share about menstrual health and  how to sew our own pads. Racchael has been a favorite presenter  during past Womyn’s Empowered Health workshops.

We will conclude with a potluck supper featuring Chef Nancy’s dishes, Womyn Friendly Herbal Teas and a Group Sharing Time. Please bring a dish to pass. Limited childcare is available—contact The Bloom ahead of time to arrange.
