Description:
Flower Essences are energetic remedies that are one of Mother Nature’s many healing gifts to us. As our soul’s journey through this human experience, we encounter numerous challenges that require us to evolve through our self-sabotaging patterns, programs and beliefs. Flower essences assist us, in a loving and compassionate way, to move beyond our limitations and step into our soul’s greatness and beauty. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues can be transformed through the subtle powers imbued within flowers. In this workshop we will explore the many aspects of Holistic Healing and flower essence therapy including: Dr. Edward Bach and the history of Flower Essences, understanding Bach’s 38 remedies, how to combine flower essences to make effective therapeutic remedies, working with chronic vs acute conditions, commonly used flower essences and combinations for Transformational Healing, the art of case taking and finding out the key symptoms, working with intuition, distinctions between Flower Essences and other forms of energy medicine and much more. There will also be live case taking with class volunteers. This course is for both lay people and healers who wish to add another powerful therapy to their practice.

Description:
Writing from the Top of Your Head is a unique method that takes into account the vulnerability of what it means to be an artist and writer. It combines powerful group Creativity Coaching with writing exercises that will help artists of all types to loosen up and connect with the source of creativity. The course is for writers who want to generate fresh material, feel stuck and struggle with writer’s block, or for those who have always wanted to write but are too afraid to start. Participants will be guided, in a criticism-free environment of support and safety, to “open the tops of their heads” to access their inner voices without censoring or judging. Through evocative writing prompts, 15-minute “timed writes," and lively class readings and discussions, the inner hooligan and nonsense-maker will be given room to shine and shout. (PS—You will laugh and have a ton of fun!) For more information about Nina's writing workshops, please see www.writingfromthetopofyourhead.com/writing-workshops/.

Description:
To the untrained eye, a twig is just a castoff piece of wood. But, to a mixed media artist, a twig can be bundled with other twigs…and bark…and moss to create a beautiful, three-dimensional picture. Mixed media artist, Susan Goodman, has been finding and repurposing “things,” as she calls them, since she was a child. In this workshop, she’ll show you the basic steps of creating mixed media pieces of art. You’ll start by laying down a gesso foundation; then, you’ll assemble your creation; finally, you'll paint your glued items and finish your project. Although mixed media can take many forms, this workshop will focus on repurposing objects found in nature. Materials will be provided, but students are welcome to bring their own “things” to include in their projects.
