Braiding Wisdom

Braiding Wisdom


Practices for growing, changing and being on our swiftly moving planet.


Braiding Wisdom is a series of classes started by Kate Heiber-Cobb in the spring of 2016. These classes are part of a vision to have community meeting, learning and sharing in a safe environment, while offering many people an opportunity to share their skills and knowledge. This series is intentionally focused on the personal, spiritual and social skill sets. How do we practice growing, changing, and being on our swiftly moving planet? Everyone is welcome to these classes and we are again offering a sliding fee scale to make them accessible. We will be meeting Wednesdays from January 11th thru April 12th in Monona at 4Pillars4Health Ecospace, just a couple of blocks off Monona Drive and Frostwoods Road. Come to one or a few classes, or come to them all. More details of these classes and the teachers are posted on Brown Paper Tickets under these class names or as Events on Facebook. The charge is $25 – $35 and can be purchased on line or the day of class with cash, check or card. All classes take place from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at 6020 Kristi Circle, Monona.
