Above is the last installment in my How to Eat Acorns video series. In Part 1, I talked about how to identify oak trees and remove acorn shells. In Part 2, I talked about leaching the tannins from the acorns. Above, in Part 3, I talk about what I did with the acorns after leaching them in a toilet tank. It turned out to be a lot more work than I expected! (I think next time, I’ll go back to hot leaching).
I’m very much looking forward to Thursday’s Herbal Smoking Blends class. We’ll experiment with various combinations and smoking methods, cover the different actions of seven herbs, make blends to take home, and talk about the medicinal and ceremonial use of smoking herbs in healing work. For example, I find that they assist in inducing trance, which I find very helpful prior to meditation or doing energy work on clients. Two out-of-town folks reached out to me on Twitter saying they want to learn more about this and asked if they can have my handout for that class in exchange for a small donation. I said yes to them and I am happy to make the PDF available to you, too. E-mail me at RebeccaELerner@gmail.com if you’re interested.
Other upcoming classes are:
* Herbal Medicine 101 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2, a hands-on workshop to get started making your own apothecary, a wonderful way to empower yourself and your family and cut down on expensive doctor visits for minor illnesses like colds, flu, etc.
* Make a Dreamcatcher from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6, a fun way to create a handmade gift for the holidays.
