Sandpoint Folk School

Teaching Arts, Crafts, and Skills of Sustainable Living


Welcome to Sandpoint Folk School!

Sandpoint Folk School was created to provide for sharing of skills and interests in our community.  Our community abounds with teachers wanting to share their interests, knowledge, and skills, and people wanting to learn new skills, ideas, and experiences.  Our focus in on practical skills that enhance a sense of accomplishment and sustainability.  This can include a wide range of topics and can be presented in a variety of formats including group classes, lectures, and individual classes.

Although we do not currently have a physical location, our teachers are able to conduct classes in a variety of spaces throughout the community.

We are looking for volunteers to join some of our core committees and/or join our teaching staff.  If you have skills or talents in helping us with marketing, publicity, website, administrative or teacher support, or have a passion you would like to teach, please contact us at Sandpoint Folk School

Basic Energy Medicine Classes!

So what is Energy Medicine?  This is how Donna Eden, a clairvoyant and amazing healer, puts it. “Energy Medicine brings you vitality when you are drained, health when you are ill, and joy when you are down”. “Balancing your energies, balances your body’s chemistry, regulates your hormones, helps you feel better, and helps you think better. It can be used to overcome illness, and keep you strong and resilient.”  It’s her work that I’ve been studying this past year. I will be sharing parts of what I’ve learned from this amazing women over the next 5 weeks.  Come learn how you can raise your energy levels, keep your body systems running healthy, relieve yourself of pain and stress, and prevent diseases.  This class is free!
