The Resiliency Institute offers courses, classes and events that empower people to live, grow, and build resilient lifestyles, landscapes and communities. Take courses like Permaculture Forest Gardener, Bioregional Herbalism, and Edible Wild Plants. Join us for Nature Rx with Shinrin-yoku/Forest Therapy, and Forest Yoga. Women can connect monthly during WILD Woman Project Circles. Find us throughout the Chicagoland area speaking and exhibiting about fruit tree guilds, permaculture, growing food security, renewable energy, and resiliency. Enjoy opportunities to connect at our plant sales, Permablitzs, potlucks, fundraisers and more.
Are you interested in learning more about your monthly cycle, celebrating it rather than dreading it, trying to start a family or avoid pregnancy without the use of hormonal or medical contraceptives? As women, we have a regular opportunity to tune-in to our bodies with the fifth vital sign: your period. Learn how to explore your cycle, chart various biometrics, better achieve or avoid pregnancy, celebrate your cycle & yourself in this workshop.
Workshop instructor is Clarké Snell, a biochemist, birth keeper (birth & post-partum doula), reproductive justice advocate, and fellow woman who has been successfully practicing the fertility awareness method for the last 3 years.
COST: $25 per person
Each participant will receive a journal with charts to start tuning into their monthly flow; tea and treats will be provided. One workshop participant will receive a menstrual cup as well!
