August 19-21- New England Women's Herbal Medicine Conference


the Art of Annett E. Bank . "I am what is called an Indigo Artist - a so called 'energy healer' whose focus is on global awakening and the raising of earth's frequency. I am interested in spiritual and metaphysical concepts such as Oneness and Ascension, which teaches us that it is now time to raise our vibrations and leave our negativity, fear & drama behind. I thus feel drawn to create images who portrait this shift visually and like to inspire people to return to joyful living, upliftment, power and strenght. This reflects in sensitive, poetic figures who 'flow with life' - appearing to break free from constraints, or are in some sort of transformational metamorphosis. Full of colourful expression, they are centred in their own self-awarness, reminding us of what it's suppose to feel like to be alive. The abstract pieces in particular refer to a concept of being 'light & fluid, assuming no boundaries and limitations of the human body and reflecting in this way on the spiritual nature of our being. I believe when we surround ourselves with beautiful objects such as paintings, furniture, lighting, accessories and gardens, etc. we make a symbolic statement about our own beauty. These things harmonize our thoughts and cause our minds to clear and brighten... All my work has this as it's central theme and explores the possibilies of human perfection, physicality, sensuality and birth. My intention is thus, to express these ideas in inspirational paintings that are radiant, elegant and exciting to look at."

Online Course with Susun Weed
Menopausal Allies
( Link to detailed description of: Menopausal Allies )

Mentor: Susun Weed

This course will look at menopause as puberty prime, as a metamorphosis, and as the springboard for the last fifty years of our lives. You will mine gems of wisdom from how you dealt with your first puberty, recast your problems as allies during menopausal withdrawal, meltdown, and emergence, and learn how to use herbal allies to create yourself as wise old crone – juicy, vital, vibrant, strong-boned, hale-hearted, and gleeful. You will look at the facts behind some of the prevalent myths of and learn which herbal allies are better choices. You will learn about herbal allies for menopause: herbs for dealing with fertility, mood and emotion, sex, hot flashes, sleepless nights, lack of libido, and your own personal problems. I invite you to join our circle, a menopausal moon lodge, as it were, of women honoring themselves and reweaving the healing cloak of the Ancients.
