Herbal Restoration for the Revolution
The work to disrupt and dismantle systems of oppression is exhausting. Compounded with 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 compliment the spring equinox, and sit in a collective meditation to invoke balance and growth for the upcoming spring season and beyond!
