13-15 June 2014| @ Rendas pagasts “Upmaļi”
Summer solstice is the best time of year for herb picking, especially when you do it at night under a full moon!
We would like to invite our friends and supporters to join us this June on our special herbal tea expedition: “Herbal tea, where do you come from?”. After a very successful event last year, we’ve decided to organize not just one, but two herbal expeditions this year! The first expedition will take place from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 June, at AnnA BergmanS’ tea garden “Upmaļi” in Rendas pagasts, near Kuldīga.
(A second herbal tea expedition will take place from 27 to 29 June. You can find more information HERE. )
During the expedition:
- learn about wild herbs;
- collect your own herbs in the special certified organic gardens;
- learn to prepare ayurvedic teas;
- sleep at the rustic “Upmaļi” farm;
- cook and eat delicious fresh vegetarian meals from local produce;
- enjoy a herbal sauna or bath during the full moon;
- take part in yoga or meditation sessions;
- see how vegetable oils are produced;
- learn about sound therapy, ayurveda, and the medicinal qualities of herbs;
- get to know some wonderful people!
Our guide will be Māra Bergmane, who is a certified reiki and ayurvedic masseuse. Also, she is an experienced lecturer on natural healing, prevention and therapies. Plus, she manages her own organic farm!
When do we go?
We will leave from Riga (Ernestīnes iela 12) on Friday 13 June at 17:00, and return on Sunday 15 June around 19:00. (In our experience, it is usually possible to arrange to share a car with other participants.)
What do I need?
We are planning to stay in tents, so you will need to bring your own camping equipment (tent, mat, sleeping bag). In case of bad weather, we can move our beds indoors.
Also, bring a (linen or cotton) towel and swimsuit, warm clothes, and suitable outdoor shoes.
The entry fee is set at 70 euros (cost price), which includes accommodation, food, saunas, lectures and activities.
In case “homo ecos:” needs to arrange for your transport, this will cost 15 euros more.
During the expedition, you can request a special ayurvedic massage for an extra fee.
