Tending The Hearth - A series in Mendocino

In winter, the altar of the home is the hearth. We gather here to dry herbs, brew tea and keep vigil as we drop into the darkest season. Collectively, we offer the hearth stories, songs, prayers. We fire scry, we divine. We keep warm, nourished by this place. 

In this series of six classes, we will work with medicines of place to engage with the season, deepen our connection to our own intuition and make remedies that are reflective of this time together. Some topics include: dreamwork, folktales, syrups, pantry magic, evergreen medicines, incense making, traditional herb cookery and more. There will be fun homework assignments such as creative writing, medicine making and relational readings. 

We will meet for seven sessions, mainly Tuesday nights and one Saturday session. All Tuesday classes meet from 6 pm - 8:45 pm. The dates are as follows:

Tuesday, November 6 

Tuesday, November 13

Tuesday, November 20

Herbal Moonlodge - Almost Every New Moon in 2018 at Yoga Shine

This circle is for all who are wishing to connect with a magical lunar practice on a moonthly basis. We will gather to set intention, meditate and practice the cultivation of inner vision alongside lunar rhythms. Each month we will work with a new theme, sip a tasty brew of herbal tea and learn about medicinal herbs that will help us bring our intentions into fullness. Sometimes there will be art making, medicine crafting, writing and movement; surprises in store! This is a supportive circle for us to share and dream together. To amplify our magic. Come as you are. Only 12 spots are open each month, so be sure to reserve your place!
