We will discuss methods of drying and preserving the bounty of summer, as well as techniques for staying organized and on track. experience harvesting herbs that will be stowed away for winter months.  

Lunch: In addition to the summer fruit and vegetable staples that abound in our gardens and at farmers’ markets learn to bring our wild herb friends to the table. Together we’ll stray from tradition and make a pesto that embraces the diverse bounty of medicinal summer plants. 

Medicine Making: Harness the power of the sun as we discuss and make infused oils. These oils will be suitable for culinary or cosmetic use. Learn the healing properties of Plantain, Comfrey, Red Clover and Calendula. Share in the bright beauty of herbal oils and the diverse ways they can bring health into daily life.

Reiki Clinic

Reiki Clinics
Periodically throughout the year, Reiki Masters Wendy Fogg and Debra DiNola offer Reiki clinics as a service to the community.  These clinics offer 20 minute healing sessions by Wendy, Deb and other practitioners who volunteer their time and skills.

Reiki is a hands-on healing art.  The practitioner acts as a channel to bring the healing energies of the Universal Life Force to the recipient.  The energy is taken into the body where it works to rebalance the seven primary chakras or energy points along the spine.  As this happens, the body is now more able to do its own healing work.

No manipulation is involved.  Clients remain fully clothed other than shoes.  Reiki has no religious affiliation, although clients often have spiritual experiences with Reiki.  Reiki does not interfere with medications you might be taking.

Reiki is relaxing.  It can help with many issues including anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, addiction, common colds, headaches, back pain, emotional trauma.  Reiki does no harm.

We invite you to join us on the following dates to experience Reiki for yourself:

  • Thursday July 13th, 2017 6:30pm - 9:00pm
  • Thursday August 3rd, 2017 6:30pm - 9:00pm

September 16-17, 2017

Reiki is a profoundly simple, powerful, and gentle hands-on healing practice that promotes the body’s natural self-healing abilities. This two-day intensive will include an introduction to and discussion of the Reiki Ideals and the chakra system.  While this Reiki I class is based in the traditional Usui Reiki system, the Tibetan and Shamanic practice and experience of the teacher will encourage the discovery of the student’s own personal Reiki gifts.

  • Receive the Reiki I attunement which opens your Reiki channel to the infinite supply of Universal life force energy and invites balance among your four subtle bodies: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. 
  • Be given the first Reiki symbol, learn how to use it, and practice using it. 
  •  Participate in exercises to open your own intuitive personal healing gifts.
  •  Experience a guided meditation designed to clear and balance your energy, create your  inner Reiki temple, and meet your Reiki guides.
  • Learn the Reiki hand positions and practice Reiki self-treatment.

Earth to Body: Autumn Session

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.

The Witches Dance

The Witch's Dance
Sunday July 2
1-4 pm

Instructor:  Allison Charron

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.  

Unlike traditional forms of meditation, sacred dance honors the body’s inherent wisdom to move or be still. This workshop uses both guided and free-form movement. 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.

Traveling the Axis Mundi: A Shamanic Journey through the Labyrinth

TRAVELING THE AXIS MUNDI: A SHAMANIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE LABYRINTH


Date: Saturday June, 24
Time: 2:45pm-4:00pm
Instructor: Tracy Andryc

Cost: $25.00


This workshop is our spotlight workshop for our Summer Wellness Fair!

There will also be vendors, food and fun activities for adults and children alike! The Wellness Fair is from 10:00am-4:00pm

The axis mundi is the connection between higher and lower realms…the world tree...sacred center. The labyrinth connects us with earth and sky, etheric and physical, within and without and gives us the opportunity to send energy along the axis mundi or chakras. By connecting with the dynamic energy of the labyrinth and sending that energy up and down the body’s axis mundi, we can move beyond the obstacles on our path toward balance and wholeness. Join Tracy on a journey through the labyrinth that will awaken your energy centers and bring you to sacred center.

BIO: Tracy Andryc has been sharing her love of the labyrinth since her first walk on its path in 1998. She sees the labyrinth as a universal tool that can be used in a magical/spiritual context, regardless of your religious path. Tracy is a Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator, Certified Birth Doula, Reiki Master and owner of One Path Labyrinth Ventures. She takes a holistic approach to her labyrinth work by incorporating other modalities such as crystal grids, sound and sacred dance. For almost two decades, she has facilitated workshops and rituals on the labyrinth and other topics at venues throughout New England. Tracy lives in Massachusetts, with her husband, three adult kids and three step-kids, happily playing with clay.

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.

Red Tent Temple Event

Red Tent Temple Event

Sunday February 12
10 am – 5 pm

The herstory of many cultures has brought forth the stories of women gathering together for many centuries in celebration of the Divine Feminine.  Traditionally, women of the tribe or village would spend the days of their moon time – the monthly menstruation together in a specially designed red tent or tipi. They would be fed and cared for by the young girls of the tribe. It was believed that women were most spiritually intuitive and powerful during this time.  They would pray, sing and meditate together, bringing their visions and divine guidance to the tribe at the end of their stay in the red tent.

The Red Tent Temple Movement, introduced to America in 1998 by Alisa Starkweather “offers women a state of beingness rather than our continual doing mode. How about not do anything for a few hours? Or seeing what happens when we don’t have a plan or a direction? Are we keeping ourselves busy so we don’t feel? Where are we hiding in our busyness that may speak to our hearts when we finally take time to slow down? 
The Red Tent Temple Movement is a way for women to take our inner momentum, that feeling like the time is now and come forward with everything we are as women and give us a place to incubate, dream, slow down, and not have an agenda or plan. And simultaneously much is waiting for us in this not knowing place but we need to make time for the empty space. It is also not only empty space but woman space where we can share stories, laughter, songs, food and honor our unique cycles that we experience each month in our bleeding time and in our going through menopause and the many years leading up to it.”

Join us for this very special day of peaceful celebration of yourself as a woman.  Dress very comfortably – sweats or pj’s are perfect!  Delicious hot soup, salad, breads and sweets will be available throughout the day.

This event is a community service offering by The Coven Of The Green Fire.
Donations to support this event and others like it are accepted and appreciated.

Balance Your Chakras & Get Connected: Class Series

January 30 – May 22 (2017)
9 Class Meetings
1/30, 2/13, 2/27, 3/13, 3/27, 4/10, 4/24, 5/8, 5/22 Evening 6:30-9 pm
Instructor:  Wendy Snow Fogg
Cost: $175

Within everyone’s body are 7 primary chakras (pronounced shah’-krahs) that hold the energy of the physical as it is affected by the emotional and spiritual energies of our being.

While we are designed as perfect beings in perfect balance, that balance becomes altered by our walk on this physical plane.  For example, the throat chakra is the place where we express our truth.  A heated argument can either shut down the throat chakra or blast it wide open like a hyper-extended joint.  In either case, the throat chakra is unbalanced, leaving the person susceptible to illnesses such as strep throat, tonsillitis and thyroid disorders, particularly when this type of situation is typical in a person’s life.

 Each chakra represents a very important point of balance.  Learning to recognize imbalance and clear it using crystals, visualization, meditation, sound and color can bring relief, balance and joy!

 In this 9-part series, we will work with one chakra per class meeting, using all these tools.  In the final class you will experience a full chakra meditation, including the 8th chakra, allowing you to commune with your own higher self and receive direct guidance.

 Please dress in loose, comfortable clothing.  Eat a light, healthy dinner or snack before class. Ingesting alcohol and processed foods prior to class may be detrimental your class experience.

Yule Log: Crafting Class

Saturday December 17
2-3:30 pm
Cost: $25 (includes materials)
Please register by Sunday December 11

The Yule log was originally burned during a pagan holiday called Yule. Adopted by Christianity, it was then burned on a hearth as a way of celebrating Christmas in Europe. People believed that burning the log would bring prosperity in the coming year. Yule logs also expanded into new traditions and conformed to a more modern world. Whichever tradition or religion is practiced, the burning of the Yule log continues.

Today we enjoy the Yule Log as a holiday decoration, adorned with red candles, evergreen tips and wild red berries.  Join us today to create your own Yule Log and perhaps a new tradition for your own family, however you choose to celebrate the season of peace on earth.

A Winter Forest Walk

Join Marilyn for a winter walk through the woods of Misty Meadows. For most of us, winter is a time to stay indoors, cozy up near a fire and wait for the frigid air to pass. However, did you know that the forests and fields are still buzzing with life? Animals and plants that don't rest during the colder months, working hard to gather food and stay warm. We'll look at tracks in the snow (if it has fallen) or look for signs on the ground for wildlife. 

Please dress appropriately for the season, staying warm is key! Also, due to fluctuating weather at this time of year, please call the shop that day to see if there will be a walk. We will only cancel if there is a snow storm or incredibly cold weather. (603) 659-7211

The Magic of Scent

Saturday December 17
10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Cost: $45 (includes materials)
Scent plays an important and quite powerful role in our lives.  We make choices about everything from food to hair products based largely on how they smell.  We're more likely to shop in stores whose aromas appeal to our sense of smell. Memory is frequently triggered by smells.

In this workshop, your sense of smell will take a fun, intriguing and surprising walk through the world of scent as you sample different types and qualities of essential and fragrance oils.  

Each participant will create a unique spray or oil to take home and enjoy.
