New Year's Class

Put the old year to bed with compassion, and greet the new year with enthusiasm!

Online class: Dec 28, 2018-Jan 1, 2019
Cost: $10

The turn of the New Year offers us a calendar opportunity to reflect on our most recent trip around the sun. Let’s bring forward the wisdom of our lessons so that we can create a better year to come.

How has life treated you this year? Was this a year of achievement? A year of struggle? A little bit of both?  In this 5-day New Year Class, take just 5-10 minutes per day to let go of the past year and prepare yourself for whatever the year ahead might bring.

Personal success and greatness require effort, and obstacles are always possible. This class will prepare you to greet the opportunities and challenges of the new year alike with grace, strategy, and an open mind. In this class, we will look back and learn from the past year, identify goals for the coming year with clarity, and add a touch of creative wonder to the year ahead.

The Witch's Garden: Crystal Facial Tonic

The Witch's Garden: Crystal Facial Tonic

The Witch's Garden is a series of monthly classes offered by herbalist Yeshe Matthews. Tracing folklore, family recipes, and wisdom from those who came before us, this group takes on the responsibility of keeping the simple ways of natural healing alive. Together, we study, share, and craft recipes for tonics, liniments, teas, tinctures, and baths, among other, more esoteric methods. Our monthly gathering is an opportunity to learn new recipes and methods in a hands-on way, while communing with other Earth-lovers, herb gardeners, and self-healers. 

July 12, 7pm
This month's topic: Crystal Facial Tonic

During this hands-on class, each participant will make a cooling, soothing skincare spray using all-natural ingredients. These spritzes will help you get through the hot days and cool you off as you sit out on the sun-baked earth watching the night for shooting stars. Each spray will include crystal chips to help you bring the energies of the stones and their properties into your self-care routine.
Cost: $20 (includes gathering plus all materials)

Instructor: Yeshe Matthews has been a folk herbalist for over 20 years, beginning with a personal study of Culpepper's Complete Herbal, later becoming a student of Rosemary Gladstar. She has been a frequent teacher at the Northern California Women's Herbal Symposium, as well as offering her Witch's Garden classes for over a decade to students in the Bay Area.
