Community Medicine Circle - Mental Wellness

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 10:15am to 1:00pm
Event Description: 

August 14th Topic: Mental Wellness

Our human bodies have tremendous natural capacity to heal. As we learn to give our precious, miraculous beings that which we need to function optimally, we bring ourselves back into balance and embody wellness. The tide of the "chronic disease" epidemic ravaging our communities could be turned if we collectively learned to nourish ourselves and each other, and supported each other in the foundational work of behavior change. 

Reimagining the role of physician in society and in community, Dr. Anna O'Malley facilitates monthly medicine circles in the Garden. The Latin root of the word "doctor" means "teacher"; it is the sacred responsibility of the physician to empower through sharing how our bodies work, and how to bring them back into balance. What happens when this information is freely shared while building community?

These monthly circles are held in collaboration with the Coastal Health Alliance, are open to all members of the community, and are free of charge. Bring a friend. Donations in support of the Garden are gratefully received. 

Second Wednesday of the month: 10:15 am to noon, in the Commonweal Garden- 481 Mesa Road in Bolinas.

Following the circle we'll have a potluck lunch and chef demonstration sourced from the Garden related to our topic of the day. From noon to 1:00.
