Summer Workshop Retreat
Sunday 16th February 2020
Where: Kaukapakapa, Auckland
Cost: $495 per person
Food : Morning tea, lunch provided with wholesome food and drinks all provided + refreshments through the workshop
During this day we will work together through the processes of making herbal infused skin care. We will start the day in nature harvesting the herbs we will be using throughout the day. Our time here will leave you more knowledgable about harvesting and how to process these herbs correctly. Hannah will also be happy to answer any of your questions about your own gardens. We will then get together for a 20 minute Qi Gong class (a moving meditation) where we can absorb the beautiful energies of the garden and take this through to the rest of the day .
We will then make our way to Stoney Creek Retreat for the workshop part of the day. First we will emerge ourselves in the alchemy of distillation. Using the herbs we harvested from the gardens we will create whole plant hydrosols through our Alembic Copper Still. You will be taking away the hydrosol that we create together during this session.
We will all enjoy a wholesome lunch together filled with seasonal produce. During this break we will make an Elderflower and Honey Elixir to sip on.
After lunch we will learn about Crystals and their role in healing and why we use them in our products. We will then go through a thorough step by step introduction to herbal infused oils, where we will be blending, straining and bottling our own wild flower body oil to take home. This is a hands on process where you will be individually creating your own oil that is unique to you.
Catherine will then talk through some easy health and wellness techniques that you can bring into your daily routine to increase your health and happiness.
The last hour will be spent creating a bespoke face cream that you will take home.
We will finish off the day with a beautiful meditation to seal in all that we have learnt and say our goodbyes.
