About The Workshop

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander History Month, Enterprise Bank's Multicultural Alliance and Wellness Committee invite you to join us for this free virtual workshop on traditional healing remedies; Self-care with Spices.

Adult life in current times is rife with responsibilities at work as well as home and the stress that comes with it. In the long list of chores and to dos, self-care often does not make the list and even if it does, it is usually relegated to the bottom. Self-care can be broadly described as all things you do proactively for your mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

In this session, Pratibha Shah, Doctor of Ayurveda and a leading international Ayurveda expert, will share tips and guidelines about Self-care with Spices. She will talk about 5 potent, easily available, common spices, their therapeutic benefits and some simple home remedies that be made using them. Attendees will learn about the importance of self-care, the approach of Ayurveda to health and self-care, with a specific focus on the selected 5 spices.
