EARTH TO BODY WELLNESS SERIES

$85.00 per Class
We welcome you to the garden to learn about its care, keeping, and bounty from the Garden Manager and Medicine Maker.


AUTUMN: Sunday September 24th 10:00PM-4:00PM


Garden: We invite you to join us as we begin to prepare the garden for the winter. Discuss fall seed sowing and saving, soil building techniques, and ways to honor the garden as it wanes. In a cyclical mirroring of “Spring cleanup”, learn the importance of autumn clean up, and of preserving ecosystems by leaving plants uncut and not raking leaves out.

 Harvesting: In the fall plant energy retreats into the earth. This is the time to harvest root medicine! Learn the etiquette of this harvest and connect with Earth energy. Explore the ways roots can be dried and stored for optimal potency. A variety of roots will be harvested for making your medicine for the day.

Lunch: What can we still munch on? Herbs and wild weeds are hardy and can be found in full splendor even as the first frost bites the earth. We will harvest and forage for plants to make a tasty fall soup. 

Medicine Making: As we connect with the deeply nourishing properties of the roots you will learn how they can be utilized in delicious medicine. Create a flavorful mineral tonic perfect for the table or the medicine chest. This traditional preparation is used to aid in maintaining robust health through the winter.

Note: Each class students will receive handouts and the products made that day. Although there are lunch activities we encourage all students to bring supplemental food, so they can feel energetic and nourished throughout the day. All classes are weather contingent and subject to cancellation in the event of severe weather, participants will be notified upon assessment.

Dr. Jody Noe, MS, ND
November 11-12, 2017
9:30 am - 5 pm
Intermediate – Advanced Level Class
Tuition:  $295 plus required book.

 

  • The Endocrine Triad: Pituitary, Thyroid & Adrenals or The Endocrine Responses To An Impending Nuclear War
  • Maiden – Mother – Crone
  • Female and Male Reproductive Issues


About Dr. Jody Noe
Dr. Jody E. Noé obtained her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Previous to this, she was awarded her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science degrees from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. Dr. Noé served as adjunct faculty to the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine, Quinnipiac University, Connecticut College of Naturopathic Physicians, Bastyr University, the New England Women’s Herbal Conference, Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) and several community colleges and private organizations.
 
A founding member of the Botanical Medicine Academy, Dr. Noé is president emeritus for both the Oklahoma and Vermont Associations of Naturopathic Physicians.
 
 
The Cherokee Way
Dr. Noé practices traditional Cherokee medicine as taught by her Cherokee elders. This is a practice that encompasses mind, body, and spirit. She was accepted as an official apprentice in 1987 by Crosslin F. Smith, high medicine priest of the Keetoowah, Cherokees of the western band of Cherokees in Tahlequah, OK. She was adopted into the Smith family shortly after starting her apprenticeship. This is a unique honor reserved for few.

Prior to this she was taught by the elders of the eastern Cherokees, Mary U. Chiltoskey, "Mama" Geneva Jackson, and Amy Walker. Dr. Noé continues to study with her elders and practices traditional Cherokee ways with patients when appropriate.
 
The traditional Cherokee medicine way uses plants, earth, air, water, and fire (heat) along with rituals and prayers to invoke Spirit and Healing. The Keetoowah are traditionalists and practice ancient rituals such as the sacred "Stomp Dance" to this day. In Cherokee medicine many aspects of healing are addressed with the focus on the Spirit of each modality affecting the Spirit of the patient to conjoin with the Great Spirit of the universe.

A TRUE BEGINNER’S ASTROLOGY COURSE

Tuesdays:  November 28 through January 30
                    No class Dec. 26, Jan. 
                    Snow Dates:  Feb. 6, 13
Class Time:  6:30-9 pm
Tuition: $220


You will need to provide your EXACT Date, Time and Place of Birth.  Your natal chart will be run for your use in class.  If you are unable to provide this information, please let the teacher know asap.
Have you been intrigued by the tiny bit you may have heard about your Sun and Moon signs?  Have you tried learning on your own but become confused?  Have you taken a “beginner” class only to find yourself lost and confused again?  I’ve taken several of those classes and I understand how frustrating and disheartening it can be.
This class is designed for you!  As a teacher of beginner herbalists for over 20 years, I’ve discovered a passion for teaching and a particular love for teaching beginners.  Over this 8 weeks, I will guide you carefully and thoroughly along the astrology path.  The pace will be gentle, giving plenty of time for each piece of this zodiacal pie to be savored and digested.
At the end of the class, you will have all the basic information necessary to read natal charts.  The course will cover:

  • Planets: Their personalities, rulerships, relationship to other planets, relationship to signs
  • Signs of the Zodiac:    Their characteristics, relationship to planets and each other, the significance of where they are in a chart.
  • The Three Modes: Cardinal, Fixed Mutable
  • Elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water
  • Houses: The twelve houses of the chart. 
  • Angles: Ascendent, Descendent, Midheaven, Nadir
  • Aspects: Conjunct, Opposition, Square, Trine, Sextile
  • The Natal Chart: A snapshop of the heavens at the moment you drew your first breath! 12 Houses, 10 Planets, 1 Moon, 12 Signs.  It all comes together here to paint the picture of who you are, how you present to the world, how you think and feel and why, how past life experience is affecting your current life; how do you handle money, conflict, relationship; what are your talents, what drives you…..or holds you back!

The study of astrology is a continuing process.  This course is intended to give you the foundation and confidence to embark on this journey of learning to understand yourself, your world and the Universe in which we all live.

THE WITCHES DANCE

  Evergreens and Waning Light

December 2nd, 2017
1:00pm - 4:00pm 
Cost: $35

The witch's dance is inherently empowering. We raise energy. We experience divinity in physicality. Through motion, we heal, evolve, and heighten our awareness. The movement itself becomes a doorway. Whether in ritual or rave, we dance at the threshold: at the doorway to the ecstatic, the doorway to spirit, and the doorway to Self.

The practice of mindful movement will invariably bring us to one of the fundamental truths of the witch: that of immanent divinity. The witch’s dance fosters an understanding of the body as spiritual intelligence. Every cell is imbued with divinity. The bones and viscera share their stories. Intuition is channeled through the fascia. Our perception of physicality, of Malkuth, begins to shift. We become fully present in the Garden of the Gods. 

In this workshop, we'll be moving and communing with our evergreen plant spirit allies to deepen our experience of this dark and waning time of year.  We'll be dancing with the darkness.  We'll be lying fallow.  We'll be moving in quiet anticipation of Yule and the cold arrival of the Cailleach.

No previous dance experience is necessary. Movers of varying levels of mobility are welcome. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and bring water, a yoga mat, and (or) a blanket.

BIO:

Allison has been dancing since the age of four.  She minored in dance at Providence College, where she also performed and choreographed for the Providence College Dance Company.  Inspired by the ability of modern dance to induce trance states, she began looking to incorporate her love of dance with her spiritual path, which included the study of various movement-based meditative practices.  Having explored dance as a gateway to the ecstatic for the past several years, Allison is currently fusing her practice of meditative dance with her practice of witchcraft.  Allison is a High Priestess within the Temple of Witchcraft tradition and has been sharing the Witch's Dance with her community for the past several years.
