Activating the Healers: September 2nd Workshop at Twee

Join us on September 2nd at 6pm for this workshop facilitated by traveling activists.

Radicalizing Herbalism and Activating the Healers

Facilitated by Claudia Abbott-Barish and Meghan Murphy

Using popular education, our workshop will cover a brief history of corporate power and how herbal medicinal use has been prevented in the past, barring us from actions of self-sufficiency. We will focus on why cultivating, wild-crafting and teaching about herbs creates new possibilities for us to create more healthy, reciprocal systems (social and economic) in the rest of our lives. This analysis will include examples, past and present, of how people have used herbs and herbal medicine to resist exploitation by those in power. The workshop will end with a dialogue on how to engage around these issues with members of our communities; what methods are inclusive, representative and equitable, and how to collaborate with the most people.
