Magic in the Making - Absinthe - Sunday 5pm Sanctuary
This workshop will present the participants with the history of Absinthe, 100 years of demonization and final rehabilitation of Absinthe. What the Absinthe really is, the social and medicinal value of different digestive and nervine tonics in our fast paced, hectic and toxic lifestyles. We will explore the Magic of herbs and the Art of Herbal formulations. The "poetic language" of smell and taste for bodies and minds, that helps keep our biological “hardware” fully operational. Our culture is more than ever in need of stress managing strategies to combat all the environmental and cultural factors we exposed to in our ever faster and faster lifestyles. Stress is a process of adaptations all living organisms are subjected to, and that process needs to be managed in order to be beneficial rather than destructive force. When persistent stress exhausts our adaptive energy, our body and minds are depleted and we as individuals experience the effects of the process we know as “accelerated aging”. The most obvious choice to combat it is the use of Herbs, the very complex, yet very simple solution that has been in development for millions of years by the very same “Mother Nature” that created the environment for us and the same “Mother Nature” that created us as organisms to be supported by this environment.
First 30 people registered will have an opportunity to indulge in a tasting ritual of real Absinthe. Please bring a bottle of water.
