The Art of Postpartum Belly Binding and Moxibustion

  • 141 Blue Jay Lane Leesville, LA, 71446 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Bengkung belly binding and postpartum moxibustion are some of my favorite ways to keep the mother warm in the postpartum phase. They encourage healing in the physical, mental, and emotional realms during a time of a womans life where how she is treated will either give her vitality or leave her feeling less.

Come and learn why an how to use a Bengkung belly bind for postpartum women, when and how to use moxibustion on a postpartum mother - and most about this stage of life and how we can use warmth to help her heal. We will discuss some basic alignment points necessary for pelvic floor recovery and life long strength.

Your registration comes with a beautiful organic Bengkung belly bind from a small woman owned business and access to a special members page to reference when needed (and all updates as they come for a lifetime, starting October 2019).

Cost: $70

Fire Cider Making Community Gathering

Fire Cider Making Community Gathering

  • 141 Blue Jay Lane Leesville, LA, 71446 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Let us gather as a community and make some powerful plant medicine on the Autumnal equinox- fire cider!

This remedy is a favorite among the herbal community and our home during the cooler months of the year. Combined with the power of creating in community, this remedy will bring warmth to your body and soul for healing.

This is a free gathering - you bring your own ingredients (listed below) and we prepare the cider together. Children are absolutely welcome, as well as those who just want to gather and not make any fire cider - or are fire cider curious!

Ingredients - bring what you can find, fire cider isn’t a strict recipe:

  • Ginger root

  • Horseradish root

  • Onion

  • Garlic

  • Cayenne (either peppers or powder)

  • Jalapeno

  • Lemon

  • Orange

  • Rosemary

  • Turmeric

  • Apple cider vinegar, raw - with the mother

  • Honey (this for after straining so you don’t have to have it for the gathering)

Don’t forget to bring a large jar with lid to put it all in when you are done. A half gallon mason jar works beautifully and can be purchased easily locally. Imperial Hardware in Leesville has a nice collection of mason jars. You can buy a 6 pack for yourself OR split it with other (arrange beforehand as there is no guarantee that people buy it at the gathering).

Knives and graters for preparing the cider are also a good idea but if you don’t have them, we can share.

Please contact me to let me know you are coming.

See you soon my friends.
