What is coming up ahead at Brooklyn Herborium:
January 21, 2020 From 12:30pm - 5:00pm at the Windsor Terrace Location
Please keep in touch! Sometimes I feel like I am talking into a void (and then you show up at the shop and give me some love so I know its all good)
Next week we have so much going on at the Windsor Terrace Workshop!
On Monday, December 16th we will hold an Orientation for our New Practitioners from 10 am until 2!
PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP:
If you have not had your orientation and plan to attend this one.
If you are interested in helping out at orientation or be a model.
If you have already had your orientation and would like to sit in as a refresher.
I will try to satisfy everyone's requests as best as I can! There is a new section within your resources page with some good stuff to go over before your orientation--don't worry if you don't get through all of it before Monday.
Tuesday December 17th is a very exciting Apprentice Circle: Herbal Infusions Masterclass for 12:30 to 4:30. I am expecting a bigger group, so please please please let me know (if you haven't already) if you plan to attend so that I can have enough supplies prepared.
Wednesday will be a practice day starting at 10. I will only be there for the first 40 minutes (unfortunately) but I expect that others will be around and want to practice on each other. Please let me know if you plan to attend so that we can make sure there's a good balance of maidens and crones...
And the GREAT NEWS?
In 2020, we will continue holding our Apprentice Circles just about every other Tuesday (twice a month--keep an eye on the calendar, topics might change, but the dates will stay the same unless there is an emergency and I will send out a specific email!)
Be well, precious humans! We hope to see you soon.
Emma & Molly
The next Apprentice Circle will be:

Apprentice Circle: 5 Step Plan for Optimal Vibrancy
Five Step Plan for Optimal Vibrancy was developed over many years as a way for us to get optimal results with the least amount of frustrations by doing things in the right order! At this Apprentice Circle, we will review the points of the 5 step plan, cover as may case studies as possible, and have the opportunity to create an individualized five step plan knowing what you now know. We have a lovely model who will be getting her first facial during this circle who is midway into a five-step plan for her “acne” skin. It should prove to be highly educational.
If you are planning on attending this circle, please review:
Be sure to read this: 5 Steps to Optimal Vibrancy

Hello Holistic Practitioners!
Happy New Moon. It’s the season of the roots and connection with our ancestors. What a great time to learn new techniques or dig deeper into the techniques are are working on—discovering new nuances as you go.
Fo those of you who are attending Tuesday’s Practitioner Apprentice Circle (or those of you who want to play along at home) I’ve put some suggested resource materials on our Resources page as well as down below. Let me know how this works for you. They were simply made from videos that apprentices took during Circles past and then emailed to me—but there is good stuff to be gleaned. I would love to have a head count, so please RSVP if you can.
Next Practitioner Apprentice Circle: Oct 29th, 2019
Advanced Massage Techniques (The Breakdown Technique, The Contour Technique, The Drainage Technique)
Please Review before Tuesday if possible:

CONTRAINDICATIONS & CONCERNS
New Practitioners and Practitioner Apprentices:
If you are new and have not yet learned The Alignment Technique, don’t worry—you will get your chance. We can do a practice day dedicated to The Alignment Technique after your Orientation. Get a head start with this video
Winter 2019 Revision Session will be on December 3rd
Does anyone want to add an Orientation day the day before and a Practice day the day after?
Anything else? Let me know.
Here's a simple video that was part of a recent series on Hormonal Health. When I track down the rest of the videos, I will post them here too.
I am pleased to let you know that I have updated all of the client handouts and have added Additional Handouts about eachRegimen and Ritual. I recommend printing them out and getting to know them as there is so much you can learn from each page.
These Handouts are the pages you are welcome (and encouraged) to share with your clients. It is important that we are consistent in the recommendations that we make--especially when clients are so easily confused (because of media, etc...) and soon revert to the old ways (not counting drops, mist and then oil, straight up oil as a massage medium before bed, 12 grain bread, low-fat, too much raw foods....you get the point) unless we give them good reminders.
As you become a firm believer in the practices (through your own experience and your S.O.A.P. Studies) you will be sharing them with confidence--knowing exactly how to pinpoint who needs which handouts for the quickest and most effective path to great skin.
***note-there seems to be a lot of trouble with click-though from this page. If it doesn't work--go though the Apprentice Resources Page and log in from there. All of the Handouts are also in the Google Drive. My apologies for digital hiccups.
Ha! So after I made this video showing everything in a spiral-bound. We unanimously decided that using three three-ring binders (like we used to) works better. But all the information is there and I am still so proud!
Summer 2019 Revision Session
Sarah Demonstrates The Alignment Technique.
What a great day! Thank you to everyone who showed up. If you missed it, here's a recap:
1. Everyone got a chance to get hands on with The Alignment Technique.
2. Those who had not had a chance before got to feel how light yet precise the touch of the wands should be.
3. We handed out these lovely cheat sheets for you to keep by your side while "practicing"
We also pulled out the triage cots and came up with some pretty cool protocols for on-the-go and quickie facials using very limited supplies.
If you missed this practice day, you can download and print the cheat sheet from the "Techniques" page in the Educational Hub. If you want some one-on-one tutoring with Emma, Sarah, or Jen over the summer, don't hesitate to reach out.
Reminder: You may purchase another set of wands for $48 per set.
Thank you for visiting. We are so glad that you stopped by! We hope that the information gleaned here helps to make your transition to beautiful, healthy skin the natural way more pleasant and complete. Please email us or set up an appointment for a consultation if you have any questions!
