A Holistic Self-Care Program For The Hardest Seasons Of The Year
The Original Instructions School of Traditional Medicine and Practical Skills is elated to be offering our Restorative Winter Wisdom Retreats and online program, which are designed with the purpose of bringing fortification and rejuvenated throughout the hardest months of Winter.
Seasonal depression can often be caused by the depletion of essential nutrients from our bodies coupled with under-stimulating social and psychological elements. Many people who live in regions which remain extremely cold, wet, and grey for weeks and months at a time have experienced some form of seasonal depression or "cabin fever".
Traditionally, Indigenous peoples from all continents have cultivated many practices surrounding holistic self-care throughout the Winter months including herbal medicines, foods, crafts, medicinal baths, ceremonies, and more. These many practices have formed through countless generations of human beings discovering what our allies are when traveling through the darker times of the year, and of life.
Our Original Instructions Restorative Winter Wisodm Retreats weave together a warm blanket with strands of traditional practices from the four corners of the world. It is our prayer that after experiencing our Restorative Winter Wisodm Programs you will not only be restored to your optimal state, but also that you will carry the self-care tools you'll learn throughout all of the harder times of your life.
