A Transition Albany Health Presentation
Yes, it is still Summer. And the perfect time to prepare for the challenges of Winter!
Would you like to go through the cold and flu season relatively confident that you know what to do? If and when you should get a cold? Or the flu? Better yet, would you like to increase your chances of NOT coming down with either one?
If you are one of those who would rather skip the flu shot, then this class is for you!
So join us!
Together we will learn how to prepare for Winter, reduce the likelihood of getting sick and develop self-care skills to help us breeze through the cold and flu season relatively unscathed!
What the class will cover:
- Immune boosters
- Preparing for Winter (including DIY herbal preparations, teas & supplies)
- How to stop a cold/flu on its tracks
- Home remedies to help you recover fast
- Nourishing food
- Gentle exercises to nudge yourself to recovery.
Guy McPherson, of Nature Bats Last, is a rare phenomenon: a man who is willing to share the facts about the likely imminent effects of climate change on our species – yup: the fate of the human race in the Sixth Great Extinction. He presents the facts with a good dose of “gallows humor.”
He will be making a presentation, “Responding to Abrupt Climate Change” at the West Berkeley Library on Saturday, May 7th at 1:30 pm. Please join Guy and other humans who are willing to hear the stark truths of our predicament, and discover what beauty can arise in life when things are clear. Bring your friends and loved ones.
The free afternoon talk will be followed by a fundraiser and book-signing at the nearby Highwire Coffee Roasters (see image below for addresses). Guy is making his West Coast tour on the gift economy and we welcome your financial contributions. (more…)

The Edible Garden will have interesting activities and contests to win unusual starts. The Diverse Housing Working Group will get you thinking about how people live who have no stable home, and how you can help them, and you’ll have a chance to register for May’s Community Resilience Challenge and get more information about Transition Streets – a neighborhood-driven effort to build resilient community.
Plenty of good ideas for greening your lifestyle even more, plus local artists and craftspeople and entertainment from some of our excellent local musicians including the AHS music classes.
