Sunday Sit for Compassion

Sunday Sit for Compassion

There's no denying that times have been heavy. It seems like the news is filled with tragedy after gun related tragedy. Recently, Columbus has seen its own gun violence come to a head. Every day, we hear more things from around the country and world. It can all feel like too much.

During these times, it's important not to lose sight of an important idea: we are all in this together. All of us are in this, as community, as humanity, as strangers passing on the sidewalk, as family. This can be easy to lose track of, but one way to remember is through practice. 

On October 16th, join us at Under Aurora for an hour of loving-kindness meditation led by Kirsten Carroll of Equanimity Unlimited. This class is focused on building compassion both for ourselves and others. It is a small act, but one that can have real impact not only in your personal world, but the greater one as well.

This is a donation-based class and all proceeds will go to a charity determined by the group. 

Please bring a pillow or blanket to sit on. There is also a limited number of chairs and a small couch to sit on.

Space is limited so please click here to register and then bring your donation to class.

Herbs for the Feminine Spirit
Sep

7:00pm 7:00pm

Herbs for the Feminine Spirit

The art of gathering plants and making medicines was within the realm of women (mothers, witches, crones) for thousands of years.  So many of us are now disconnected from that tradition and crave the nourishment and magic of healing plants. 

In this class we will taste and discuss herbs that are particularly beneficial for women.  These herbs nourish our bodies, balance hormones, ease menstrual cramps or childbirth, soothe raging skin, promote or suppress fertility, clear up infections, and bring dreams. Join us and discover your feminine plant allies. Everyone will take home a bag of nourishing tea.

Herbal Medicine Making: Tinctures and Cordials

There is so much more to formulating plant medicine than just tea.  Tinctures are shelf stable infusions of herbs in alcohol, glycerine, or vinegar-- a classic way to preserve herbs and easy to travel with.  In this class we will talk about best practices for making tinctures and cordials and will each make our own tincture to be decanted at a later time.  You will take home an 8 oz jar filled with your tincture.
