From savingcranes.org:

“In 1973, when cranes were in a perilous situation and many were on the brink of extinction, Archibald, along with Cornell University colleague, Ronald Sauey, Ph.D., established the International Crane Foundation (ICF) in Baraboo, Wisconsin as the world center for the study and preservation of cranes. Today, ICF has over 50 employees and supports conservation projects in 45 countries. Archibald is a true conservation ambassador who uses his unique brand of crane diplomacy to work in sensitive places. He leverages the charisma of cranes to unite people from diverse cultures and countries to work together to preserve the landscapes necessary for the survival of both cranes and people.

Born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Canada, Archibald received his undergraduate degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1968, and completed his Ph.D. at Cornell University in 1977. In recognition of his many accomplishments, Archibald has received four honorary doctorates and many awards including the Gold Medal from the World Wildlife Fund, a Fellows Award from the MacArthur Foundation, The Wildlife Conservation Medal from the Zoological Society of San Diego, the Lilly Medal presented by the Indianapolis Zoo, and the Douglas H. Pimlott Award from Nature Canada. In 2013, Archibald was awarded the Order of Canada on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II, and received the inaugural Dan W. Lufkin Prize for Environmental Leadership from the National Audubon Society. He and his wife, Kyoko, live in the Baraboo countryside where they enjoy gardening and aviculture.”

Essential oils are being increasingly integrated into holistic health practices for a wide range of uses. They are commonly used to boost immunity, help manage weight and diet, pain management, manage our moods and so much more. Essential oils also serve us emotionally, assisting us in releasing what no longer serves us. When we can let go and create space emotionally our physical health begins to be restored.

In this 1-hour essential oil experience class, you will learn how to use EO to assist with common ailments, enlighten your mood, and enhance your yoga practice.

Entice your senses, as we snack on foods made from EO, inhale the benefits of certified pure therapeutic grade, and apply them topically to be absorbed and restored in moments. If you are just beginning your essential oil journey or advanced this class is for you.

Every registrant will receive a gratitude roller ($16 value) just for attending, along with a drawing for a yoga mat spray, and more.

*Bring a mat to sit on *There are no asanas in this class

As we are able to see both sides of any issue at this time we are able to work on harmonizing any imbalances. This is an excellent time to meditate with relation to any personal or world issues that may be concerning you.
