Healing Depression, Anxiety and Brain Fog with Albuquerque Herbalism
Warning: This is not your average mental health class! It is, however, suitable for both lay people & mental health professionals.
Many types of physical imbalances can cause or exacerbate mental health symptoms. Our culture prescribes medications to manage these.
But could there be other ways to explore, validate and heal the root causes of depression, anxiety, brain fog and other cognitive &/or emotional symptoms?
Yes! In this class we will:
- Validate and affirm symptoms as both real and often adaptive responses in the big planetary picture.
- Discover how to identify the top ten physical imbalances that can manifest as emotional and/or cognitive symptoms, and how to respect and heal these symptoms.
- Explore epigenetic, ecocultural and other often-overlooked sources of trauma and stress that can interact with physical root causes.
- Learn simple, sustainable ways to send your nervous system safety signals with food & medicinal plants, nature, meaning-making and microrituals.
- Take home extensive class notes with further study & resources
- Space is limited! Registration is required.

Fall Equinox Plant Ally Meditation in the Bosque
Join Yerba Mansa Project Administrative Director, Angie True, for an enchanted evening meditation in the Bosque on the cusp of the Fall Equinox. The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature. Within this cycle, many ancient cultures perceived powerful messages for humanity. Consciously linking our awareness to nature’s cycles can deepen our understanding of our own personal cycles as well. Have you ever wished to develop a closer relationship with a local plant ally? After relaxing into the gentle wildishness of our restoration site, we’ll journey together on a guided meditation designed to open a space through which your seasonal plant ally may come forward, bearing harvest-time messages. Adults and older teens only, please.
Date: September 25, 2020, 6:30 – 7:30 pm
Location: Bosque restoration site, Tingley Drive, south of Central
Cost: Suggested donation $25 to $75 per person.
This is a fundraising event, the proceeds of which will allow for the Yerba Mansa Project to continue our restoration work and to continue to provide our many free programs and events for school classrooms and the community. Space is very limited!
COVID OPTIONS: You can choose to participate in-person, outdoors, distanced from others or participate live online from your own meditation location.
