As we bare witness to a new era of CBD marketing, let’s remember that there is an abundance of local whole medicine right at our feet. Mindful of the colonial histories of modern medicine, this workshop will begin by taking a look at what medicine gets lost when we extract and isolate compounds from the wisdom of our fellow plantitas. Through expanding our relations with local whole plant medicines, this workshop will focus different herbal medicines that can feed our nervous system and offer support towards ailments such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. This workshop will profile the physical and spiritual components of 4 medicinal plants as well as their different methods of preparation.
This workshop will feature both a discussion and medicine-making portion. Each participant will a receive a little zine as well as materials to make their own custom tea blend.
