BIPOC Herbal Restoration for the Revolution

 

The work to disrupt and dismantle systems of oppression is exhausting. Compounded with racial trauma, generational trauma, chronic illness and the stresses of existing under capitalism, the work of creating liberatory futures can often result in poor health and burnout. This workshop offers participants the opportunity to tune into their bodies and cultivate a self care practice with the support of plant allies. We will explore herbs to help tune our nervous systems and sit in a collective meditation to invoke balance and growth to sustain our bodies through movement and revolution.
