Those classes are the ones I offered first. If attendees want
something other than the basics .... tell us!
Offerings so far:
History of Henna 7000 BCE to present (several hours of lecture)
Henna traditions of Sexuality
Henna traditions of Sacrifice
Henna traditions and the Evil Eye
History and traditions of Harquus

Those are the "biggie lectures" that are long and complex.
I have shorter ones too.

I can also lecture on:

Persian Henna Traditions



Re-arranging the Trouser Furniture (the traditions regarding male and
female circumcision, foreskins, pubic hair, menarche and menopause,
clitorises, homosexuality, transgendered people, and eunuchs in North
Africa, and the Middle East with emphasis on henna's part in those

Henna traditions for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum

North African and Middle Easter traditions of Night of the Henna,
including Jewish and remarriage traditions

Henna and Menstruation

Lesser known North African and Middle Eastern henna traditions:
animals, suicide, death, Zar, Hajj, Id, Ramadan, prostitution......

Untying Knotwork

Chemistry and Techniques

If you're DEFINITELY coming to the Serious Chicago Henna Conference
... and want to put your bid in for a particular class ..... holler!
