Hen Basket

$26

with Christine Smith, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Apr 25, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 2 weeks

This is a ribbed basket. (The framework is woven first and then filled in.) It is believed the hen basket is a very old design seen in twelfth century manuscripts, and it may have been used to carry hens. You may weave it with a more challenging Josephine Knot for the handle, or on a 10" round hoop. Both baskets measure about 10" high.  Materials fee of $25 payable to the instructor at class.

Herbal Basics Spring 2019

$10

with Alicia Randolph-Lucchesi, Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative

Calendar May 1, 2019 at 6 pm

6 herbs for relaxation, as well as general information on the importance of incorporating herbs into our daily routines.

About the instructor:

I’m an urban girl from a metropolis area of the south (like west-coast-of-Florida-south), who’s systematically moved north to find the land of her dreams in Maine. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, a Master of Arts in Holistic Wellness, am a certified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and Elder Greenfire WiseWoman.

I’ve spent over 20 years researching natural and alternative forms of healing. I’ve spent that time also watching trends come and go…often coming back under a new name but with the same dangerous effects. 

Because of all my research, I’ve vowed to stick with tried, true, and more logical, scientific remedies. I’ve also spent over a decade working in health insurance, auto/home insurance, have worked for pediatric gastroenterologist’s as well as chiropractors, and have fought on both sides of medical claims to get Dr’s paid or not paid. I’ve seen all sides of our sick care model, and understand how and why they work.

I’ve been confused. I’ve lost my loved ones to diseases, after spending years caring for them and giving them solid, sound advice. I’ve had my own health battles. I’ve been frustrated by the information/misinformation out there.

I needed alternatives. People soon began asking me to explain how I got those alternatives.

My mission, or calling, is to help you cut through all of the confusion you see and hear about being healthy. I do this because of my own experiences of loss and confusion.

I want you to be able to do what I do—get the diagnosis from western medicine and responsibly follow a Holistic and natural, sensible, empowered existence.

There is a middle road between medicine and nature, and I’m here to help you find it.
