Alchemy 101: Elixirs with Janice Bond

Join us for the first of many BGIO workshops exploring contemporary alchemy, featuring wellness aficionado Janice Bond. On Thursday, April 2nd at 6:30 p.m. in the South Loop, we will explore how to make an elixir targeted at centering our energies. The elixir is inspired by Janice's now famous "Be" concoction: an anti-inflammatory, detoxifying potion. Together we'll learn about how we can adopt elixirs as part of our weekly wellness practice. All participants will create their own elixir that will last the entire week!

Suggested donation $25. Limited to 10 registrants. RSVP at least 3 days in advance. You will receive location information and confirmation 24 hours in advance.*

Can't attend, but still curious about these elixirs? You may learn more, and order one here!
