We are over-the-moon to welcome back qualified local herbalist; Emma Warrener – who is very a down-to-earth, highly knowledgeable teacher.
Emma will encourage us all to find out more about the wonder of the natural world. Our modern minds have removed some of our connection with the earth. Come and see Emma to regain some of that connection. This year’s theme is the element of the earth and what better way to explore the earth element than by a herbal walk around the site – plus a fascinating workshop on taste, a natural guide map towards true nutrition.
Herbal Walk ~ Cabourne Parva
This year’s theme is the element of the earth and what better way to explore the earth element than by a herbal walk around the site. Discover the numerous uses of plants, herbs and trees that grow there including the culinary and medicinal benefits as well as the spiritual and elemental.
We will discuss how to harvest and use the plants along the journey and taste several that are in season. Herbs are a great way to connect and improve health and wellbeing but just being out in nature has an impact on health reducing stress levels and improving cardiovascular health.
We have grown up with a lot of the plants I discuss about, and can often overlook them or view them as weeds. This walk will help to pull the veil from your eyes and discover the value of the greenery on our lil bit of Lincolnshire earth which surrounds us. I will send out resources after the festival to everyone who attends so they can continue with their journey connecting to the plants around them. Herbs have always been the people’s medicine and are the original medicine.
Five Tastes Workshop
Much of the wisdom of nutrition rests on the tip of your tongue, literally! The sense of taste is a natural guide map towards proper nutrition. For ages, humans relied largely upon taste to discover healthy foods in nature and avoid toxicity. Our taste buds do much more than simply identify tastes; they unlock the nutritive value of foods and provide the initial spark to the entire digestive process.
Food speaks to us directly through taste. A juicy pear may call out to us with a gentle message of delight, while the flaming chili pepper cries out in warning. As we tune into the tastes naturally desired by the body, we tap into the body’s innate wisdom regarding food and nutrition.
Modern food manufacturing and the processed foods we eat break the link we have between nutritious foods and foods that merely taste good due to the addition of sugar and salt. Proper food comes from or is sustained from the earth.
Our taste buds lead us to seek out nutritious food. Different tastes can create different impressions on us having different applications with regards to health and wellbeing. But as we are all unique this workshop will also look at our energetics or constitution as well as help you to distinguish between the five different tastes and how to use your knowledge of yourself and the tastes in your diet and health.
