This is such an amazing program and the transformation to your immune system, mood, and sleep is noticeable, that we wouldn’t want you to put it off because you don’t have time for the class series.

Autumn Equinox Incense Making

Date: Tuesday September 18, 2018

Time: 6:15-7:45

Location: 95 Montgomery Dr. #90 Santa Rosa, Ca 95404

Cost: $20 –  including materials

Purchase tickets here.

Burning Incense is an ancient practice used to cleanse and purify a space, connect to spirit, and become more grounded. As we enter into Autumn, a time that begins the decay of trees and plants, we begin to look inward and slow down. Herbal incense can be a supportive tool as the wheel of the year turns.

Join Herbalist and Modern Witch, Julie Benefico, for an evening to welcome Autumn in ritually by connecting with herbs, resins, and roots. The equinox is also called Mabon in european pagan traditions and represents the second harvest of the year. In this class we will share gratitude and reflect on the bounty we have in our lives and notice patterns of imbalance. We will set intentions for bringing more clarity & alignment into our lives, learn about Fall equinox plants, and make incense cones to take home!

Please note that white sage (a endangered and over harvested plant) will not be utilized to make incense in this class. Nor will any other plant sacred to indigenous people.

Yerba Santa STRONG!

Date: Friday September 28

Time: 10-11 a.m.

Location: 17560 Greger St, Sonoma, California 95476

As we approach the 1-year anniversary of the North Bay fires, under skies of this year’s devastating fires, lets come together and nourish our lungs.  Did you know that according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the lungs are the center for grief, loss and in-turn regeneration?  The lungs are responsible for taking clean, oxygen rich air into the body, and breathing out air full of harmful carbon dioxide. They are responsible for taking in the new and letting go of the old, the constant cycle of life.

Exposure to toxic smoke compromises lung health and can lead to imbalance. According to TCM, the best time to tonify the lung is in the autumn.  Come make some nourishing lung syrup with Yerba Santa, a sticky-leafed shrub which grows in abundance in central and southern California grasslands, especially in areas touched by wildfire (its seeds germinate with fire).

Yerba Santa supports lung health by toning respiratory tissue and is traditionally used as a sacred herb to free the breath and release deep sadness.
