Percolating for Herbalists with Sandy Jeudwine

Percolation first appeared as a method of extracting herbs in the U.S. pharmacopeias in the 1840’s. It is a comparatively rapid, efficient and cost effective method for making high quality herbal tinctures. In this class you will learn which herbs are suitable for extraction by percolation, how to prepare the herbs and then participate in the process of packing percolators for extraction. The resulting tincture will be shared among participants at the end of the process.

Be Your Best

Your health is your greatest asset. Learn to value health and wellness via physical, emotional, spiritual being, overcome fears and obstacles and Be Your Best. 

 

Movement, mindset and nutrition. This session will explore posture assessment and how it relatess to your nervous system. We will look at the masculine feminine body and determine recommendations to be your best self.

Finding the

Goddess Within :

Tulsi the Goddess Plant

with Lis Conlon

Learn how connecting with and honouring the consciousness of a plant can assist you to connect with and honour your own inner archetypes; in this case your Inner Goddess.

 

Lis will share some of her own personal transformational experiences with Tulsi the Goddess Plant. She will teach you plant communication techniques to help you connect with Tulsi and gently support you through deep meditative states using her voice, instruments and sacred sound.

 

Lis will also facilitate a shamanic journey on her ceremonial drum to guide you to a rich inner world. In that intuitive state you will engage with the sentient consciousness of Tulsi and receive the personal messages that Tulsi has for you.

You will experience a beautiful “Music of the Plants” meditation to assist with deepening your appreciation of the energetic and electromagnetic impulses from Tulsi the Goddess Plant.

 

Time will be available to share and write your insights and experiences – be sure to bring a pen and journal.

Gather the Women,

Heal the World with Jane Hardwicke Collings

How to set up and run a women’s circle.

Jane will offer processes and practices to learn and take out into the world to create community through women’s circles.

You will learn the circle way, how to create and hold sacred space, grounding meditations and invocations to weave through a cyclical program that connects women to their menstrual cycle, the lunar cycle and the earth’s seasons.

Bring a printed 2020 calendar with new and full moon marked on it, coloured pens, journal
