Herbal Tea & Hormones
This is an upcoming progam offered to girls ages 10 to 18, who would like to better understand the natural hormonal cycle in a warm, fun and supportive environment drinking nourishing herbal tea and journaling once a month. This group will meet mostly in person every full moon during the academic year of 2022-2023. The program, as always at The Bittermelon, is free. We begin our gatherings on a powerful and special day for many Asian American communities, the Harvest Moon! See dates below.
