Winter 2019: Self-Care Sisterhood: Folk Medicine Making for Women of Color

The world and society, as they are today, can leave us exhausted, vulnerable, disconnected from our bodies, our lineage, each other, the Earth.  Our grandmothers lived closer to all the things that make us feel more human and more whole.

In this class we will begin our journey into reclaiming herbalism and self-care by exploring the kitchen, and medicine making, as a site of revolution and nourishment.  We will gather around herbs and household tools, recall our healing back into our lives and our communities. We will learn how to use the plants available in our urban herbal pharmacy to make self-care rituals and ceremonies that strengthen our hearts, our bodies, honor the grandmothers and the Sacred Feminine within.  Trans women are welcome.

Please note we will incorporate essential oils in this class.
