SPRING SESSION

 Sunday May 6th
10:00am - 4:00pm
$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.


Garden: Come play among the young plants and budding life in the gardens. Join us in our medicinal herb gardens and nurture your connection to the rhythms of the earth! Work according to the ancient traditions of planting seeds by the moon; both indoors and outside. Learn the art of opening your gardens in the spring in a way that changes the way you think about “spring cleaning” as we deepen our connection to the soil by using leaves, garden debris and compost to build the soil for an abundant growing season. 

Harvesting: What can be harvested this time of year? What is appropriate to harvest? Spring is the emergence of life! It is a wonderful time to collect buds and new growth for medicine. Gathering leaves of wild plants like Red Raspberry or Blueberry, it is important to gather before they set their flowers. Enjoy learning to harvest with responsibly and consideration to the plants. 

Lunch: Engage your wild appetite as we taste young bitter greens, that will awaken your pallet, after the long winter. We will explore the uncultivated and cultivated delicacies in the gardens and the woods to make a delicious spring salad and dressing to share. 

Medicine Making: How can you preserve the energy and vitality of the spring? Learn the art of tincture making. This process is tried and true and will give you a medicine that can last for years. With your new found or seasoned harvesting skills you will learn how to connect with the plant of your choice and welcome its spirit and medicine into your preparation. We will discuss the energies of the plants and the healing benefits that they offer. 

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.

REIKI III CERTIFICATION

MASTER PRACTITIONER: USUI-TIBETAN ENHANCED
 

With Reiki Master Teacher Wendy Snow Fogg
June 29-30
9:00am – 5:00pm (both days)
Cost: $395

When Dr. Mikao Usui received the Reiki symbols and the power and wisdom to use them while meditating many years ago on Mt Kuryama, he accessed the same power that is available to all of us. Shamans from time immemorial have interfaced the spirit world with the human and Usui can be considered to be one of the most powerful shamans the world has known. The practice of Reiki opens the intuition and thins the illusionary veils between spirit and matter. Within this opening lies an invitation to work directly with spirit in the healing process the way shamans and indigenous healers have done for centuries. Hands-on Reiki becomes a vital portal for the dynamic ways of working with the Universal Life Force Energy.

In this experiential weekend, Wendy Snow Fogg combines the diverse teachings she has received with the discoveries that have come with twenty years of Reiki practice. Through ceremony and practice, assisted by the four elements, plants, music, sacred stones, shamanic journeys and Reiki spirit guides, Wendy facilitates your opening to Shamanic Reiki.  You will receive the Master-Practitioner Tibetan Buddhist symbol and attunement; receive another archetypal symbol for use in healing work; learn to work with your spirit guides and the four elements in the healing/cleansing process; practice body-centered journeying techniques for yourself and your clients; learn energetic extraction techniques and etheric body-work approaches; energetic practices to support spiritual healing and the path of the healer. 

Please bring a lunch and snacks. 

Prerequisite:  Reiki II attunement and minimum 20 healing sessions.  Reiki III and Usui Master Teachers may also find this class to be valuable.  If your Reiki II training was with a teacher other than Wendy Fogg, please email a copy of your Reiki II Certificate to mistyoffice@comcast.net. (This level is pre-requisite to the Master Teacher class.)
