In this online workshop, hosted through the Berkeley Adult School, you will learn the lore and remedial qualities of some herbs associated with  relaxation, prophetic dreaming, and intuition. We’ll discuss dreams and the importance of personal gnosis in discovering meaning.  Supply your own fabric, thread and needle. 

The workshop is held via Zoom on Saturday, December 5th, 2020, 10 am - 11:30 am PST. Anyone can enroll! The class is $20, and the kit is an additional $10. Give yourself at least a week for shipping. Register for the class at https://basberkeley.asapconnected.com/#CourseID=227937

The kit is for one herbal dream pillow as seen in the photo. The stuffing in the pillows comes from a few ounces of organic buckwheat hulls (not sand). Buckwheat hulls are a traditional filling for pillows and mattresses in Asia. Each hull is the shape of a cupped hand, so they keep their loft (they don't compress) and allow for a little airflow. They're also hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, hallelujah! (Source of info: https://www.thesleepjudge.com/benefits-and-side-effects-of-a-buckwheat-pillow-you-need-to-know/) The organic herbs  in the kit are lavender, mugwort and hops (about half an ounce each). You can also choose whatever other sweet-smelling herbs you like. After the class, you will have many more ideas!

As for fabric, I recommend freshly laundered cotton fabric with a pattern you love, approximately . You'll need a rectangle or square shaped piece of cloth, 10" by 20".
I am happy to meet you in person in Berkeley to exchange $10 for a kit (to avoid shipping costs). Just email me at jericahahn@gmail.com for details. As another alternative, you can source your own buckwheat, lavender, mugwort, and hops at an herbal supplier like Lhasa Karnak Herb Company on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley.
