Weaving and Mending: Herbalism from the Past, in the Present, for the Future
We all come from a deep legacy of an existence intertwined with the life of all the land around us wherever that may have been. We also all have trauma and necessary healing from what it takes to live on this Earth. There is no doubt as well that some lineages have thrived and suffered unequally across the span of time and space. By honoring the wisdom of the past and working to repair the wounds therein, while embodying that which we can best personify in the now, we allow for a better world for the generations of the future. This talk is a journey linking the threads of human experience around a holistic herbalism grounded in tradition, inspired for the now with consideration for the realities to come.

Lean on Me – Plant Allies That Can Help Us Weather the Storm
Depression, pandemics, sorrow, grief, strife seem to be raging right now. But so is hope, beauty, love, kindness and Plant Power. We can learn from the plants how to root deep, hold fast, and weather the storm. And, perhaps, even how to make magic and beauty in the midst of it all.
Roses, Lavender, Comfrey, Nettle, Plantain, Violets, Self Heal, Yarrow, Chamomile, Calendula, Dandelion and a host of other plant friends and allies are reaching out to us, inviting us to walk the beauty way even as the going gets tough. We’ll be sharing simple plant teachings that can strengthen us, help heal us, and light the way on our journey.
