Sara Woods Kender, Clinical Herbalist ~
I began my journey into herbalism at a young age. Always spending hours in the woods near my rural home of Alton, NH, I found sanctuary there. Spending time with the trees and plants of the forest, hours of walking along logging roads of past and present closely observing mosses & ferns of the forest floor. Maneuvering through gnarled roots, streams and glacial till and just feeling at home; at peace. With my father's love of subsistence gardening and my grandmother's love of ornamentals, I came by it honestly. There was always something missing to me though. Always something in the back of my mind prompting me to take it a step further. After much reading and experimenting with the plants on my own, I found Misty Meadows in the Spring of 2008. I completed the seven month Herbal Apprenticeship and finally found the stepping stones that would become my path. For a short time I became the Junior Herbalist while continuing my education in the Traveling with Misty Meadows Program and now enjoy the benefits of becoming the Associate Herbalist where I can continue my herbal journey learning, healing and being in contact with people who seek healing as well as give it. I also became an ordained minister receiving my certificate from the Universal Life Church in 2008. This allows me to do hands-on healing channeling the universal life force of Reiki in the Usui- Tibetan Enhanced Tradition. I continue to participate in workshops, conferences and classes to hone my skills as a healer and broaden my knowledge as an herbalist.

Readers, Teachers & Facilitators
is a professional Astrologer and a Reiki Master. After 14 years as a staff/faculty member at Unicorn Books in Arlington, MA, she has relocated to the seacoast area, where she now maintains a private practice. She uses astrology to establish an understanding of the intention of the soul for this incarnation, to ferret out relationship boondoggles, to understand who we are and how we got to be this way and where we want to go, to help bridge the gap from the self to the Self. As a lifelong discipline for Janaki, Astrology provides a unique frame of reference supporting ever-greater self-acceptance and awareness, which can then lead to a willingness to change and grow. Janaki sees astrology clients at her office in Newmarket, NH. Call her at 603-659-0388 to schedule an appointment.
