Free Herbalism Class at The Sojourner!

Free Herbalism Class!

Intro to Herbalism – Teas – Infusions

Saturday, June 16 at 12 PM – 1 PM
Open to the Public

Hosted by: The Sojourner Whole Earth Provisions
414 Evans St, Greenville, North Carolina 27858

252-758-7656 (SOJO)

Free Herbalism class at The Sojourner with Courtney Varnadoe

Join local herbalist Courtney Varnadoe for a FREE community herbalism class! Reclaim the people’s knowledge and practice of gentle healing with the earth.

During this talk I will be discussing basic at-home herbalism, and demonstrating the preparation of teas, infusions, and decoctions. Be prepared to take notes; I may have instructional take-home booklets for sale (to cover the cost of printing) after class, but it’s not a guarantee!

A message from Courtney:
I spend a lot of time thinking about purpose, values, career, and how I’m supposed to align all of those major things into one life. I’ve felt for a long time that humanity needs a revolution that inspires us to connect with the world around us, and protect it from people who would do it harm.

Getting to know plants, how we can use them to help us, and how we can help them is, to me, an integral part of that process. I’ve been holding classes on how to use herbs for many years now, but recently I’ve come to a realization: If I’m truly going to spread this message around, and possibly help people take control of their health and lives within their means (in a healthcare and cultural system that makes it unreasonably expensive to live a healthy life) I’m going to have to make it accessible to absolutely everyone.

So here we are. Starting now, I’m teaching these classes for free to anyone who shows up. No, I’m not a doctor, physician, or healthcare provider of any sort (And I have no interest in becoming one) but I do seek to remind people that there is an entire spectrum of healing. And partnership with the Earth and it’s bounty is a part of that.

The Sojo News: First Friday Drum Circles, Closed Memorial Day

Happy Summer, Sojourners!

Happy Memorial Day! The shop will be closed in observance of the holiday on Monday, May 28th. We also wish Jupiter Melchizedek a very happy upcoming birthday!

Starting Friday, June 1st during the First Friday Art Walk, (6:30-until) we welcome Love Joy Drumming in partnership to host a drumming circle, free to all. When the weather is nice, find them across from the Sojourner in the grassy lot on Evans street (where the hammocks are located.) Alternate rain location is inside the Sojourner. We will be open until 9:00 during First Fridays throughout the summer.

Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap in liquid and bars – 6 scents

We are packed to the rafters in beautiful new merchandise to kick off the summer. Natural locally-made soaps, bug repellents, and bite soother spray is a must have around these parts. We’ve expanded our apothecary to include 6 scents of Dr. Bronner’s Castile soaps in both liquid and bar form.

Natural Bug repellents at The Sojourner

While you are enjoying the outdoors, remember that burning Ceremonial White sage is a deterrent to uninvited guests at the cook-out, namely the mosquitoes, and we have plenty!

Ceremonial White Sage bundles to repel banefulness of all sorts – especially mosquitoes!

Books and decks are fully stocked, and we have an abundance of beautiful statuary, including most of the Greek Gods of Olympus, and many Norse, Celtic, Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian Deities.

Egyptian Statuary at The Sojourner

Prisms, dream catchers, light catchers and wind chimes are a lovely addition to the windows and patios this season.  Lanterns, bamboo wind chimes, crystal prisms and strands of bells adorn every arbor of the shop this season!

Dream, Light and Wind Catchers at The Sojourner

Shoyeido all-natural Japanese incense is now back in stock! We have restocked favorites from their daily incense line (Including Nokiba/Moss Garden, the most popular) Kyoto Moon, Zen incense, and Jewel series, along with incense ash, bamboo charcoal, and ceramic incense bowls. We also have a new boxed incense to try, Madoka, which is formulated to produce less smoke than other incenses. This brand is truly high quality and my absolute favorite, and I have been proud to watch our selection grow over the years! You have to come try it out if you haven’t!

Shoyeido Incense restocked at The Sojourner

A note: Yes, these incenses are around $5-$6 for a standard box. They contain no synthetic ingredients or smelly charcoal/saltpeter. However: They contain 35 or more sticks per box! In comparison to our $2.00 eight count boxes of nag champa, they are the higher quality *and* the better deal! 🙂 Something to consider when making your next purchase.

Shipments expected this week:

  • New stones in tumbled, raw and flats of specimens
  • 4mm and 8mm stone bracelets in many new varieties
  • Back-flow incense cones and new burners

Come see us soon!

The Sojo News: Modern Witchcraft Classes begin tonight!

MWC366 Banner
Introduction to Modern Witchcraft Classes
Your year of personal evolution begins tonight!

Call 252-758-7656 to save your seat!

Join us for a 6 week introduction, offered to students over 18,
Primarily taught by Webweaver, Jupiter and Heron Michelle.
Thursday nights from 6:00-9:00 pm.
Registration in advance is preferred. $90 for 6 week session; $20 individually.
10% discount on textbooks and materials with paid registration.

Dress comfortably, bring a notebook and pen. No previous experience necessary. Please arrive before 6:00. The front doors will be locked to the public at 6:05, so if you arrive late, please knock loudly until someone comes to let you in.

This session we’ll cover the foundations of Modern Witchcraft and Neo-Paganism. Studying the paradigm, history, thealogy, principles, ethics, sacred poetry, and concepts about the afterlife that introduce this nature-based spirituality. We’ll also take many guided meditations. Following this session, students may be invited to join the coven in our Solar celebration of Imbolc – the Sabbat of High Winter.

What is Modern Witchcraft?

Modern Witchcraft, as it is taught at The Sojourner, is a path towards Personal Sovereignty based on wisdom, empowerment and responsibility. It stands proudly on the historical and religious foundations of our ancestors; yet, we look to the future and strive to create a healthy way of life in a modern world. We blend scientific knowledge with ancient mysticism to evolve beyond superstition into a spirituality that brings healing, peace, and balance to the seeker. The path of the witch is a dance to the rhythm of nature. This dance transforms and strengthens us, while giving us a framework for processing the lessons of this life with grace. To seek the path of the Witch is to seek enlightenment.

Happy Independence Day, Sojourners!

I hope you all had a safe and happy celebration of our nation’s radical declaration of Independence from the unjust governance by Great Britain 241 years ago. May the spirit of revolution continue toward the creation of a society that consistently offers life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all people equally.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Emma Lazarus
