Need a Break from the LA Grind?

 Join me for a meditation session in my garden filled with flowers and herbs.

I’ll make you tea and you’ll smell delicious, relaxing herbs. 

Then we’ll meditate in the garden, surrounded by the bounty of Spring!  

When we it is safe for us to gather again, ticket sales will re-open. 

Workshop Reflections

I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. 

I felt invigorated and inspired to take charge of my own garden at home and make it as beautiful as Natalie and Aaron’s garden plots.

I was never aware of the vast number of herbs available, and now have a list of personal favorites I want to grow for my own use.

Thank you, Natalie! I didn’t want the workshop to end!

I had a fantastic time!! It was informative and fun!

I enjoyed getting acquainted with a variety of herbs, tasting the tea that had been brewed with herbs in the garden, and the meditation left me more conciously aware of the garden community of which we are each a part.

Natalie really gave us an integrated garden-to-teacup experience.

We met the herbs, seeing their beauty, feeling their various textures, and smelling them.

Then we tasted them in a variety of teas.

Finally, we sat in meditation and listened to the herbs.

The workshop was really relaxing and stimulating at the same time.
