Be Mindful at the Library Presents: Tea Time - The Healing Power of Tea with Mary Blue from Farmacy Herbs

Our mindfulness series is back by popular demand in 2011 and will include a number of classes, workshops, and lectures that will help you empower your mind and body to improve your health. 

Meet folks from Providence's own Farmacy Herbs and Community Health & Education Center and learn about their obsession with healing teas! We will taste different kinds of tea and discuss how teas and herbs can be used to increase vitality and health. This workshop will also cover the how-to of making herbal teas. If you are looking for ways to naturally promote wellness, balance and prevent illness, this is the workshop for you.
