Upcoming Classes & Workshops 
Summer, 2015

Summer is a time of fullness and blossoming, of extended light and warmth. 

Our community Medicinal Plant Walks will be happening once a month through August. They are an opportunity to identify and learn about the healing energies of local plants. On Sunday, July 21, we will be meeting at 45 Trapelo Rd., Lincoln on beautiful conservation land. 

We are excited to offer an Awakening the Spiritual Heart intensive this fall beginning September 16 with Patrice Green, who will introduce a three step process of protecting, centering, and opening the heart.  Students will receive flower essences, herbs and essential oils to support them through each phase in the process.
