Local herbalist to present workshop on natural remedies for stress
Lupo Passero of Twin Star in New Milford offers Nov. 15 class at WCSU

DANBURY, CONN. — Local herbalist and educator Lupo Passero will conduct a public workshop on “Herbal Remedies for Stress” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016, at Western Connecticut State University.

Passero, founder and director of Twin Star Herbal Education and Apothecary in New Milford, will discuss herbal remedy use in helping to combat a variety of stressors in everyday life. The workshop, sponsored by the WCSU Institute for Holistic Health Studies in cooperation with Twin Star, will be held in Room 127 of White Hall on the university’s Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury. Public registrations for the class at a fee of $25 per person may be made online on the Twin Star website at www.twinstartribe.com. Inquiries about free registration for WCSU students with valid ID should be sent by email to Twin Star at info@twinstartribe.com.

Passero will discuss several of her favorite herbs for stress reduction and share recipes designed to incorporate them into regular usage. “Herbs have been used for centuries for health and wellness,” she observed, “and there are many common, safe and effective herbs that can be utilized to support and nourish our often overworked nervous systems.”

A native of Newtown who studied herbalism at the North Carolina School of Natural Healing, Passero previously offered instruction in traditional herbalism and flower essences at the Appalachian School of Holistic Herbalism, the Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine and the One World Healing Institute. In 2009 she founded Twin Star as the base for offering herbal education in many instructional formats covering a wide range of themes in the areas of herbal medicine, holistic health and natural healing. Her training sessions and retreats have been offered across the United States and in Central America and Europe.
