 Autumn Equinox Herb Walk at Back Cove

Thursday, September 21, 5:30 – 7:00 PM

Mischa Schuler

As the light shifts, on the eve of the Equinox, we’ll visit with the plants as their energy moves back into their roots in preparation for the seasonal changes ahead. We will visit with these extraordinary beings in their later stage of growth – observing seed strategies and marveling at how much the Earth has to offer. Our evening will be rich with herbal folklore, laughter, and understanding of how to incorporate our new plant friends into daily Life. Meet at Coastal Wellness at 84 Marginal Way (parking in the building) and we’ll walk to Back Cove together. It will be a leisurely quarter mile (approximately) with stops along the way.

Gene-Based Health: Change Your Destiny with Lifestyle Planning

genetics-medicine_sq

Saturday, September 23, 10:00 -11:30 am

Your family’s health history is not your health destiny. Your genes tell an important story about your health risks and potential. You can rewrite that story by planning your lifestyle around your genes. In this way, you learn to work with your genetic code rather than against it.

Dr. Mueller will discuss what we can learn from genetic testing and how it helps determine what lifestyle habits will work best with your genetic makeup.

For more information, view Dr. Mueller’s informational video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJuENQsOus0.
