In this five week, hands-on series taught by two traveling herbalists, we will focus on getting to know unique and consistently used plants throughout the world. In this sensory exploration, each class will include hands on medicine making, folklore, recipes, elixirs, tastings and everyone will go home with their own creation.
We will learn the fundamentals of how to prepare herbal medicine (including tinctures, medicinal teas, skin care, herbal baths, sacred smoke and essences) and see how we can incorporate these tools into our daily lives. We will discuss sustainability issues surrounding the most commonly used imported plants and offer local, Colorado analogs as alternatives.
Every week we will immerse ourselves into the plant medicines used within a different continent.
Based on where we have personally traveled, we will share the gems unique to each far-away land and reveal the common threads found throughout them.

We have a deep prayer.
A prayer for the Soul of the World.
That prayer starts with you and with me, doing our part in our inner landscape to create an environment within ourselves that is attuned to love, integrity, and the ability to see what actions are needed as our contribution to the Soul of the World unfolds moment to moment.
We invite you for a night where we will journey into connection with our deeper workings through the gateway of the body.
With evocative sounds and a mix of soul driven beats, we will utilize the dynamic practice of the 5Rhythms® as our foundation, move our way into connection to depth of soul and the spark of spirit that unifies us all, stepping into collective simple ritual and prayer.
Pure Planets will offer a warming, handcrafted Elixir and Art Installation to *invoke our intention*.
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Embodied. Connected. Heartful.

SMiLE + Kevin Falco, two very different artists with a shared intrinsic focus on the importance, strength and meditative qualities of process, and a skilled attention to detail bordering on the obsessive. Vision in Process highlights these two artists, both currently local to Boulder but international in their scope and breadth of work and practice; one adept on the streets of Paris, Bologna, Mykonos; the other in some of the most exalted contemporary art institutions and ateliers.
Here’s more of a detailed rundown on the infamous Boulder street artist, SMiLE: http://www.dailycamera.com/news/boulder/ci_30421186/smile-boulder-street-art-anonymous

The artists have been hard at work for months building a showcase of their new work as well as crafting dynamic multimedia performances to really bring the show to life. The artists will also utilize the space on and off the walls to create four independent environments in order to fully immerse the audience into their worlds.
