Course Description:

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and burned out by the hustle and bustle of life, but once you tune in, you’ll realize that Earth magic is surrounding us and ready to rejuvenate and restore feelings of peace. In this class we’ll cover a different topic each time, from the physical and emotional healing properties of herbs and using them with intention, to making cordage and fabric dye from backyard plants, to easy secrets to nourish Earth through your garden, to the power of meditating with the trees, the moon, the wind, or even the soil! Let’s heal our hearts by connecting and collaborating with Earth.

 

Class 1. 3/24/24–Herbal Medicine Cabinet 
This week we’ll talk about easy to use plant remedies for everyday situations, using plants from your herb garden, the produce section at the grocery store or farmers market, or possibly even growing in your very own lawn! Participants will be making their own herbal infusion that they can take home and use.

Class 2. 4/7/24– Foraging Fun
This week we’ll open our eyes to what’s around us when we step outside, and how it might be useful in ways you might never have suspected, along with sustainable foraging practices and other “wild school” activities. Participants will be able to dye some fabric with plants and do some fiber weaving.

Class 3. 4/14/24– Indigenous Wisdom 
This week we’ll tune into our own hearts and discuss the two-way connection that forms when we both give + receive from Momma Earth. We’ll talk about ways to meditate with intention and cleanse our energy using the wind, stars, storms, crystals, and even running water in your sink! We’ll do a reiki infused guided meditation, and participants will create their own energy cleansing “smoke wand” herb bundle.

Class 4. 4/21/24– Green Living 
This week we’ll talk about how you can help the environment with some very simple actions that can be incorporated into every day living. Collaborating with Momma Earth is more than just eating vegan and driving an electric vehicle, and can be fulfilling, exciting, and even stylish! Participants will craft their own accessory using repurposed invasive honeysuckle “beads”.

About the Instructor:

In 2018 Candy moved from a busy city to Champaign, where she truly met Nature. She began gardening and wild schooling with her 6 kids, learning about native plants and wildlife, how to both give to and receive from Earth, creating natural remedies from “weeds”, and the power of connecting with Nature to balance stress and sadness. Candy’s business is called Joyfully Blooming because she loves helping people find joy in discovering their authentic, natural self, hidden under the facade of social demands.
