It’s that time of the year again. The air is cooler, the sun sets earlier. Nature clues that life is on a bit of slow down. Except us. We have mastered the ability to keep plugging along even when that little voice in our head says, “Hey, it’s quiet time.”
Of course we don’t hear. And if we do, we don’t heed. What with the holidays coming up. There are feasts to prepare for. Gifts to buy. Guests to entertain. Parties to go to. In addition to work, home, family, and …. no wonder we get sick. It isn’t just the bugs floating around in the cold air!
So before you do …
This Home Remedies for Colds & Flus class will cover the following:
- Immune Boosters! Things you can do to stay healthy through the seasons! From zero cost to not much at all.
- How to stop a cold/flu on its tracks: Best applied as soon as you could sense it coming. Yes, your body does a really good job cluing you in. (more…)
The December Potluck will be a year-end celebration of accomplishments, co-sponsored by the East Bay Permaculture Guild and other local groups with Transition values. We invite you to join us on December 3rd for a good time with a potluck of mostly locally grown, home-cooked food and the company of inspiring people who are making a difference in the lives of their communities.
Our regular monthly potlucks now include a gift circle. What is a gift circle? Here is a site that describes the idea and the practice in as much depth as you want:
So here’s how it goes: Make a dish that you like (enough for three people) and bring it at 6:30 pm. After we’ve eaten, at about 7:15 pm we make a circle and establish what gifts and needs are present in the circle this month, then match them up. It’s magic how the right people show up….
What ensues? Stronger community bonds, needs met, gifts accepted, hearts opened, lives bettered. Please come and join us. Everyone is welcome, and from those who can afford it, a $5 donation helps us pay for use of the hall and kitchen. We end at 8:30 pm or thereabouts.
