A Planetary Herbal
with Andrea Webb
You’ve stared up at the night sky, you’ve tracked the dance of planets through horoscopes and transit charts and perhaps now find yourself longing to have a deeper, more personal, more tangible relationship with these celestial beings. Did you know that, like us, plants have horoscopes? Shaped by the same energetic influences, they bear the imprint and energies of the Cosmos, growing in your front yard. We may never reach Mars, but we can experience its sharp heat through the nettle plant! This workshop explores the foundations of the Seven Planets and some Plant Folk who, in my experience and opinion, mirror their energy and being. Each planet and plant discussed will be accompanied by a recipe or activity to help us physically engage with both our celestial and terrestrial community. They include crafting a lunar massage oil over the course of the lunar cycle, blending Saturnian smoke medicine to use for ritual observance (or enjoy after a long day), and making a very special flower essence to honor boundaries - the “skin of all things.” Registrants will receive a recording of the workshop as well as a booklet with notes, instructions and recipes. Students must have an audio- and video-enabled laptop, desktop, or tablet with reliable internet to participate in class. We do not recommend using a smartphone.
Session III: Narcan Administration and Overdose Response
with Will Matteson / Healthy Lincoln County
Keeping Naloxone (Narcan nasal spray) on hand can help save a life. Having a kit nearby could help a friend, family member, or someone in the community in the event of an emergency. This Narcan administration training will guide you through how to use Narcan, as well as helpful information on opioids and how Narcan interacts with these substances. This training is free, on behalf of Healthy Lincoln County, a tier two distributor of Narcan in the State of Maine. Upon completion of this training, you will receive one kit, with two doses of Narcan, to add to your first aid kit or AED box. Additionally, you will receive supplemental resources to have on hand should you want to review what was discussed in the live training event.
