Cooking with Essential Oils - New! NEW DATE

$25

with Joanna Wilhelm

Calendar Oct 17, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

We'll be talking about how essential oils can be used in cooking. There are many benefits to doing so, including the fact that they don't lose their flavor and aren't as expensive (in the long run) as their dry counterparts. But, not all essential oils are created equal or can be used in cooking. So how do you know which are safe?  We'll be mixing up some recipes to taste while we talk and learn. PLEASE COMMUNICATE ANY FOOD ALLERGIES OR RESTRICTIONS WHEN YOU SIGN UP. We'll do our best to accommodate in the recipes selected for the class.

Handling Aggression - New!

$25

with Kevin Webb

Calendar Nov 3, 2018 at 11 am, runs for 1 week

Handling Aggression will address the 3 stages of conflict and conflict management. The situations presented are geared for real life engagements. Focus will be placed on strategies that deal with verbal disagreements as well as those situations that can escalate, and get physical. We will begin by focusing on verbal intimidation and how you can respond to someone who is trying to intimidate you or make you feel uncomfortable. We then cover scenarios that go beyond words, where “reasonable force” is needed in order to regain control of the situation. De-escalation strategies, avoidance techniques, & physical restraining exercises and controlling tactics. For adults 18 and over. No experience necessary.
