Sexual Healing with Plant Medicine (RICHMOND)

  • Diversity Richmond 1407 Sherwood Ave Richmond, VA 23220 (map)

The history of sexual violence far exceeds the #metoo movement--in fact, it’s intimately part of the historical fabric of the capitalist and colonial conquest. Fortunately, there is also a legacy of plant medicine we can call upon to find sexual healing for ourselves and our communities. Through ritual, discussion, and medicine-making, this workshop will create an intimate space in effort to honor & recover BIPOC herbal medicinal tools. In the first half, this workshop will examine the shared colonial history of sexual & economic/ecological violence in order re-contextualize the threat and power posed by herbal medicine, ‘witches,’ and brown and black people owning their bodies and labor. With a special focus on supporting the nervous system, the second half of the workshop will unearth local plant medicine that can support one’s sexual healing & power. All participants will receive materials to make their own personalized tea and/or glycerite.
