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.
As herbalist, often our training and practices are focused on life, survival and health. How does our care change when we are working with a patient who is facing a life threatening diagnosis?
Yes that’s right, we will be dancing with the plants! No dance experience is required, and the movement activities will be structured so that people of all abilities and ranges of motion will be able to participate. Please join us for this joyful and embodied exploration of our relationships with plants.
Each stage of a plant’s growth has a specific medicinal quality and potency. A plant in it’s fruiting and seeding body shares with us it’s wisdom from their youth and maturity. We will work with fruits and seeds from all over the world. We will be preparing them in their traditional medicinal and culinary ways– including as topical and edible oils and butters and plant-based digestive enzymes.
The stories of our ancestors live within us, they are in our bones, in our blood. Their wisdom and their wounds, their grief and their beauty, have all been passed down to us. Our wise and loving ancestors are calling to us – asking to be seen, to be remembered, and they’re offering their support to guide us on our healing journeys.
This class will focus on building our relationship with our herbal allies. Each class will focus in-depth on one or more herbal medicines and we will learn how they work both physically and energetically . We will learn recipes and other ways to incorporate the plants into our lives.
