Late Winter and the Preparation for Spring

It’s still dark. It’s still cold. But something is stirring inside, wondering if spring will come soon. Some of us are dreading it. Some of us are longing for it. What does it take, to have the strength, the purpose, and the clarity to welcome spring—and yet also have the patience to wait for it, as long as necessary?

Late winter offers and demands a different skill set than pre-solstice winter. It is an opportunity to cultivate hidden yang, and stoke the inner fire—but with an equal balance of yin, so that we are flexible and rested, as we wait for the moment to come forth with new plans and new directions.

This workshop explores practices and exercises to help us get the most out of the remaining days of winter—and prepare for a healthy spring.

A New Online Experience

This teleconference will be like no other that you have taken. We will use a variety of gentle yet effective online health and hygiene measures to create a Group Heart that will be nourishing, palpably connected, and rich with transmission.


What people are saying about working with Thea online: “The main thing I was most struck by after a 3-4 hour practice with Thea was how energized and full I felt; I was ready to keep going when it ended.  It was the exact opposite of how I’ve felt after many 1-hour Zoom calls at work.”

– David S.

“I have never met a more gifted teacher. Thea embodies the herbs and formulas in such a beautiful and heartfelt way, that what would otherwise be mere information becomes a living immediate experience for the student. Don’t blink or you’ll miss something intensely wonderful and unique.”

– Ki Ennes, M.Ac., L.Ac.
