Event Description (more details are better!)
Sankofa Circle (an Emotional Emancipation Circle)
DESCRIPTION Emotional Emancipation Circles℠ were originated by Community Healing Network, Inc., (CHN), and are the product of a collaboration between CHN and the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi), and part of the larger global grassroots movement for emotional emancipation being spearheaded by CHN. The EE Circles℠ process is one of many strategies devised by CHN to build the movement for freedom from the lies of white superiority and Black inferiority, and other emotional legacies of enslavement and racism. EE Circles℠ are inspired by the self-help movement and grounded in the principles of Ma’at, the ancient Egyptian understanding of the fundamental order of the universe. In Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles, we come together to: Share our stories and feelings, always respecting the humanity and dignity of each EE Circle member; Deepen our understanding of the impact of historical forces on our emotional lives, our relationships, and the well-being of our communities; Free our minds and spirits from the lies of White superiority and Black inferiority, and heal from the historical and continuing trauma of racism; Tell ourselves a new, liberating, and empowering story about who we are as people of African ancestry; Revitalize ourselves and our relationships with each other; Learn and practice essential emotional wellness skills to help us be at our very best-–as individuals and as a people; and Develop strategies to extinguish the lies of White superiority and Black inferiority–once and for all. This is the first full session of a seven-week journey into healing internalized racial wounds, community-building and activism. Participants will be given the opportunity to share, connect and reflect in a safe, affirming space. Dates are listed. You only need to RSVP for the first date. **This is an affinity space.

Come To Cheeses! Wine + Cheese Pairing | Boston Wine School @ Roslindale
Wine and cheese are a naturally delicious combination. They’ve been together for 8,000 years that we know of, and our species has been busy figuring out ways to make both of them more and more delicious all the time. The match of wine and cheese is partly natural and automatic, but by applying ourselves, our tastes, our abilities to understand and choose, we can put together pairings that are many times greater than just the sum of the parts. This class – limited to 14 students – will taste six major wine and cheese combinations together that express the full range of how these foods match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament. YOUR EDUCATOR  Jonathon Alsop is founder and executive director of the Boston Wine School and author of The Wine Lover’s Devotional: 365 Days of Knowledge, Advice & Lore for the Ardent Aficionado published by Quarry Books.  Jonathon started life as a wine writer covering wine, food and travel in 1988. He is author of the long-running wine column In Vino Veritas by Jonathon Alsop as well as many articles for the Associated Press, Frequent Flyer, La Vie Claire, Beverage Business Magazine, Mobil Travel Guides, Fodor’s Travel Guides, Boston Globe, and many others. He founded the Boston Wine School in 2000 where he teaches wine and food classes. YOUR HOST VENUE Solera – A Shrine to Wine is a neighborhood specialty wine store nestled in the heart of Roslindale Square (Boston). The store, now in its 18th year is warmly decorated in green and deep purple resembling the colors of the grapes and filled with rack after rack of “offbeat wines”, pretty much everything a modern wine geek seeks out and loves, at more than reasonable prices. Indeed, with nearly 500 bottle selections from across the globe, unlike the monster chain stores and supermarkets, Solera takes a back seat to none and offers a stellar sampling of the world’s best and some unusual vineyards with average prices from 10 to 20 dollars or more, if your budget allows. Since wine education, and customer service are vital to our business, individual attention to the customer is the reason why the press has designated the Solera staff as “well versed grape-talkers”. When you want to smarten up on your wine there is no better place to do just that than in this little gem of a store, where wine is constantly being discussed with purpose and a smile!

Cheesemaking: First Steps
The Cheese Course: First Steps In this class we will explore the process and transformation of milk into cheese, in both practice and in theory. To do this, we will make different types of fresh cheese (ricotta and queso fresco), and as we do so we will we sip complementary wine, and answer questions such as: • What are the components of milk?             • Why are they special? • What happens to milk to make cheese?             • How does this happen? • Whey? Curds? Rennet? pH? What are they? The class is not designed to be a lecture, rather a fun, interactive, hands-on session with other similarly cheese-minded folks. At the end of the evening, you will take away the two cheeses you have made! It will be run by Adam, who is not only the owner of Boston Cheese Cellar, but also holds a 1st class honours Biochemistry degree from Oxford University, a PhD in Biochemistry from University College London, and has 15 years experience in protein and cellular biochemistry within the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. He will be able to answer all your questions! Refund Policy: If you have purchased tickets, and are unable to make the event, please email info@bostoncheesecellar at least 24 h before the start of the class for a full refund. After this time, tickets will only be refunded at the organizer's discrention.

Cheesemaking & Affinage: Three Month Cheddar
For those who want to take their cheesemaking to the next level, come and learn how to make our Boston Cheese Cellar Three Month Cheddar. This class will be highly involved, as you will be making the cheddar with your own hands. It is therefore limited to only 6 participants. The initial 5 hour session will be the main body of work, where we will transform the milk, set and make the cheese. In the subsequent days, shorter tasks will be performed, such as bandaging, flipping and washing the cheese, and ultimately we (and the rest of the public) will be able to watch your cheese age until it is ready for you to take home. In this course you will: • Learn how to transform milk into curds and process the curds for pressing • Press the curds into a form • Wrap the cheddar and perform affinage • Have complete and ongoing access to our knowledge in the shop to help your future cheesemaking • Understand the entire process from a logistical, practical, biochemical and microbial view point, and how each step contributes to making our cheese. You will be equipped for the future to repeat the making, and understand any changes that you may make and how they may affect the cheese. Three Month Cheddar Plan: Sunday. 5 pm til complete: prepare milk with microbes, transform into curd; cut curd, drain, cheddar, mill, salt, press curd into form, lightly, then unrwap, flip and press as hard as possible. Monday. Remove cheese from press, unwrap and allow to air dry for 24h+. Tuesday. Bandage wrap and move to visible ageing environment. Three months later!
