Live 10-Week Video Series
Join us on this 10-week journey of nourishing our lives, starting Oct 16th!
Yay! I’m excited to be teaching this class with my awesome husband, Nate Summers!! Living our life full of Nourishing Life practices, following the Nourishing Life (Yang Sheng) philosophy and sharing this with others is one of our big passions! And this class gives us the opportunity to walk this journey together with you – renewing and revitalizing our mind, body, and spirit using deep teachings from ancient medical systems including Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Indigenous wisdom, and even ancient European healing traditions.
All classes will be recorded for your viewing convenience.
What would it feel like to lead a nourishing and revitalized life? How would it feel to be in tune with the great rhythms of life, minimize stress, and maximize energy, longevity, and ease?
Discover your own ability to be connected to nourishment in challenging times.

Nourishing Life ~ Cultivating Vitality, Longevity & Immunity During Challenging Times
This class gives you simple and powerful tools to embody and bring to life the ancient wisdom of Nourishing Life practices from traditions around the world. Nate and I will cover topics such as living in tune with the seasons, elixir and tonic herbs, a vital healthy diet, meditative and mindfulness practices, the circle-walking practice of Bagua, and most all a philosophy and wisdom that informs your daily life now and into the future.
Between the two of us, Nate and I have over 40 years combined experience teaching about Chinese Medicine, Natural Healing, and our connection to Nature. We have taught at venues such as Cascadia Music and Arts Festival, Imagine Arts Festival, the Pacific Women’s Herbal Conference, the Omega Institute and at Survival Skills Schools and Natural Medicine Schools around the country.
