Build your wellness toolkit in community!
Long Spell’s signature group consultations are a unique form of community care offering focused, holistic support on a specific health topic. Live sessions include up to 10 participants with related wellness goals, guided by energetic clinical herbalist Gina Badger.
The structure is very participatory, with group work/support group vibes rather than a standard class or workshop. In each session, reflection and self-assessment questions will help you focus your work and identify health goals. You’ll be invited to share your experience & hear from others with similar concerns. In other words, as a Group Spells participant you’ll be co-creating a space of community care that’s tailored to your needs!
You’ll get lots of content from Gina to guide you along the way — supporting you to gain a holistic understanding of the topic, develop tailored approaches for self-care, and get to know specific supportive herbs you can start working with right away.
Registration is currently open for Building Immunity, and future topics will be announced soon!
Let’s learn how to holistically support our bodies so that we can be more resilient in the face of illness — a form of embodiment that is neither a sign of weakness nor a moral failure but a natural part of life. We’ll break down the wellness-illness dichotomy, disarm military and colonial metaphors for the immune system & learn to better collaborate with the literal universe of bacteria that lives in and on our bodies and supports us to carry out the basic functions of life.
Session 1: January 9
Bodies as ecosystems, deep immunity, the microbiome
Session 2: February 6
Boundaries & sites of encounter, lung/respiratory health, digestive health, immune stimulation
Session 3: March 6
Cycles of wellness, energetic boundaries, stress, rest and recovery
