Since ancient times our ancestors have used incense in ritual and their daily lives. For the Ancient Egyptians the burning of incense was a way to the help the gods manifest in the devotional statues they hade created for them. In this class we will explore the use and creation of incense (and perhaps a little history) as a tool "to make divine"; to enhance our lives and practice, to bring the "breath of the gods" into our spaces. We will primarily look at the creation and use of "traditional" incense: resins, woods and herbs that require an external heat source like charcoal, but we will also touch on the creation and use of other forms.
