EARTH TO BODY 

AUTUMN SESSION

Sunday,  September 23rd
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: 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.

NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTE PLAYING

WITH MICHAEL LONGRIDER

Saturday
November 17, 2018
1-4 pm
Workshop Cost: $45


Join us as we welcome 3 time Native American Music Award nominee Michael Longrider in an afternoon of instruction and insight into this unique instrument. Learn the Basics for playing as well as the techniques involved to bring forth the music and harmony for peace within.

Have you ever heard the soulful music of the Native American flute and wondered if you could possibly learn how these healing sounds could be learned to be played? Are you looking to commune with the inner Divine found within us all? Join us as we explore the endless possibilities of this ancient and Sacred instrument. Have you already purchased this wonderful instrument and have no idea how it works?
 
Flutes will be provided for the class as well as sanitary tubes for your health. If you possess a flute of your own, you are more than welcome to bring it along.  However Michael would prefer if you use the flutes provided as this insures that all attending the class will be in a compatible key. Should you insist on playing your own flute, we respectfully ask that all attempts at the lesson be done after the rest of the class has tried.  This will insure the comfort and enjoyment of all students. 

At the conclusion of the class and at the break, Michael will have other flutes for sale as well as copies of his cds. Please also note that the flutes used in class will be offered at a reduced price of $50.00 to anyone attending the class.  These will be offered at the break and at the end of the class.

Walk-ins are welcome if space allows.   But please note that while Michael will bring extra flutes, walk in participants cannot be guaranteed a flute to play. So please register early.


Looking forward to spending a wonderful afternoon of music and history. 

Yours in the Spirit,
Michael Longrider


Bio: Michael Longrider; born of Scottish decent,  began playing the Native American flute in 2004 after hearing David Searchingowl play at a local powwow. A year later he was overheard playing that flute at the same powwow and was invited by the performers to share his song with the People the next day. Since then Michael has toured the New England area, and has become a welcome participant on the Powwow circuit in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island where he continues to do his part for his community.

Michael has been honored to receive 3 Native American Music Award nominations as well as 5 Silver Arrow Awards for his efforts. He has also been a presenter at the Native American Music Awards held in Niagara Falls, New York.
