Summer is here and its not long enough! Sacred has been out and about enjoying the hot, humid past few weeks here in NYC. We have done a few street fairs and the Eco Fest in Prospect Park. It always feels great to get out of the shop and mingle with the community, see old friends and meet new ones and feel the heat.
Some one recently told me finding and living your passion is the fountain of youth, well I have spent this summer drinking madly! I have met some amazing people here in the apothecary, the members of our meetup group http://www.meetup.com/Sacred-Herbalists-Wisdom-Keepers/, the members of our Shared Learning Circle a lose circle of healing professionals that gather in our store to share their healing modalities; the students in our Level II Herbal Education Program, and others, and it just keeps getting better each day. We have also had the opportunity to visit Wassiac Community Farm in Wassiac, NY and harvest medicinal FLOWERS! St. John's Wort, Red Clover, Queen Anne's Lace, etc- my favorite to harvest.
