Astrology in the 21st Century

Taught by Amalia Pursell, this class includes a basic introduction to the concepts of Astrology, including the zodiac, the natal chart, the planets, and the houses. It also covers the changes in astronomy in our era: the reclassification of Pluto, the precession of the Earth's Axial Tilt, Ophiuchus, the so-called thirteenth sign, and how these alterations affect Astrology.

Amalia Pursell is a practicing astrologer. Her specialties include the trigonometry of the celestial sphere, the mathematics on which astrology is based, and chart synastry: the study of relationships through comparing two or more peoples' astrological charts. She comes from a long line of astrologers, and has created natal charts for people from all over the world.
Cost: $20 pre-paid by March 23rd; $25 thereafter and at the door. Two or more pre-registered students needed for this class to run.

Learn About the Medicinal Uses of Herbs

 Herbal Medicine Chest Course

Medicinal Herbalist Catherine Novak (and owner of Beads N Botanicals) teaches this course. She says, “Over the years, I’ve discovered that each individual herb has so much to teach us about healing and our relationship to nature. Just when I make the mistake of thinking I know almost everything about an herb’s properties, I learn of another through direct life experience or knowledge shared with me by herbalists whom I respect.”

This course will cover somewhere between 25 and 50 herbs altogether. However, you should be very pleased with yourself if you develop a working knowledge of considerably less. The Herbal Medicine Chest covers holistic approaches to “medicine,” a traditional Chinese medicine view of “medicine,” and a Native American perspective on “medicine.”

You will learn how to use herbs safely and responsibly; methods of preparing herbs; suggested herbs to keep on hand for everyday use; how to make herbal oil infusions and salves; and how to use wild edibles as food and medicine.

At the end of this class you will take home an herbal healing salve created during this class.
Five Weeks on Thursday nights, from 6:15pm to 7:45pm. starting May 16, 23, 30, June 6 and June 13.
Cost: $150 per person, due by April 20th Or $125 prepaid by April 6th. Pre-payment and pre-registration required. Minimum of three students required for this class to run with no more than 10 students. (we will have a waiting list for more than 10 students)
