A weekly meet-up in different parks, or other green areas, in and around the cities. Anyone is invited who knows about, or wants to learn more about the local plants, the wild edible finds and the healing uses of the "weeds" growing in your own back yard. This will be an informal class, sharing anything we know with eachother, or helping eachother find resources for where we can learn more about the plants we are interested in. Topics will be based on the groups' interests. At the end of each meet-up we will decide the meeting locaton for the next week. Bring your knowledge, stories and curiosity!!

Infant Massage

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Repeats every week until Thu Jun 05 2014 .
Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 18:00 - 19:00
Thursday, June 5, 2014 - 18:00 - 19:00
Learn to massage your baby, providing benefits for both baby and parents.

Infant massage has been a long tradition in many cultures around the world.  Massage provides benefits to both babies and parents, and is an opportunity for bonding and communication through touch.  This workshop series provides hands-on instruction for parents to learn to massage their babies, including a special routine for addressing the symptoms of colic and gas.  We'll also learn about reading baby's physical and vocal cues to know whether they're ready for massage, and about the benefits of massage.  We'll meet twice, one hour per week, so you have time to practice between classes and bring any questions you have to the second class session.  Please plan to attend both sessions, as we'll be working on different parts of baby's body each session.

Please bring your baby to practice on!  Massage oil and handouts will be provided.  Please feel free to also bring a life-sized baby doll to practice on, in case baby isn't in the mood for massage in class.  

Registration is limited to three parent/baby duos.  Additional parents may accompany their partner/baby.  No child care will be available for other children.  

Facilitator's experience: 
I am currently a massage therapy student at Northwestern Health Sciences University. I'll be graduating in August with over 1000 hours of training in therapeutic massage. This spring, I took a course on infant massage, and I'm currently working on completing certification in teaching infant massage. I also have teaching experience at the U of M, and in junior highs and high schools in the US and Japan.

Non-Traditional Parents Group

This class is intended to provide support to people with children who are raising their children or living their own lives in a non-traditional way.  We seek to share our experiences, thoughts and compassion with others who share the common bond of raising a young person in a time of revolution.  The subject of our meetings will ultimately be based on what the group would like to discuss but some subjects may include.

How we support our children in their individuality

How we deal with troubling behavior

How we deal with images and ideas from the media

Recipe shares/ diet

How we keep politically involved as parents

How we involve our children in the world

How we expose or shelter our children from politics 

How we embrace non-conformity in our households 

How we deal with critisism from the outside world

 

Children are welcome!
