Cold Process Herbal Soapmaking Handmade soap is a traditional craft that dates back to ancient times and across cultures. Learn the cold process method using pure plant based oils, beneficial herbs and clays and pure essential oils. Customize your soap with ingredients that are beneficial for particular skin types. We will explore a variety of plants and minerals that can be used for their therapeutic properties as well as fragrance, color and exfoliation.
Each participant will craft and take home two bars of soap, along with the information and resources to make your own soap at home.

What is a colloquy?
Colloquy is an opportunity to engage in deep listening and to develop compassion and understanding.

A colloquy usually incorporates music, meditation, and quotes within the format of a sharing circle and around a particular theme.. Some examples of themes have been: Ethical Legacy; Earth Day Art Workshop in Honor of Mother Earth; Forgiveness; Gratitude; Personal Transformation; Occupy 2012; Meditation Techniques.
