As we enter the darker cold months, mental health is a common and significant health concern. In this class we’ll discuss some important plant medicines for assisting with ailments of the heart and mind—seasonal and long-term depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, grief, trauma. We’ll talk about both self-care and healer/practitioner approaches to treating conditions of the nervous system alternatively and holistically, and we'll explore some of those herbal allies in our plant-based care system that help lift the spirit, ease the mind, and support the whole during hard times.

Teacher bio : Hannah Schiller is an herbalist, farmer, and plant enthusiast who lives in the Hudson Valley. She runs a small herbal business and clinical practice called Foliage Botanics, writes a quarterly political plant letter blog called “The Bones We Collect,” leads plants walks, and teaches about herbal medicine.

Herbs, Tarot, and Elemental Magic

Thursday Oct. 18th at the shop, 6:30-8:30p

RSVP to goodfightherbco@gmail.com

Earth, Air, Water, and Fire have long represented forces that shape our world - both physical and emotional. In this workshop, we'll look at how these elements show up in tarot and plant magic. This workshop is great for anyone interested in developing their own intuition, and seeing what tarot has to offer as a means for self-empowerment. We will go over the four elements, some tarot basics including how to do a tarot reading for yourself and others, and which plants allies align with each element and suit. There will plenty of hands-on practice. If you can bring a tarot deck, that would be great. A few decks will be provided.

Kelly McCarthy is a clinical herbalist in Philadelphia who likes teaching about herbal medicine, magic, and health in a way that keeps things simple and accessible.

workshop 1/25

RESILIENCY FOR EVERYDAY MOVEMENTS

at Good Fight Herb Co. herb shop // 6-8pm // 253 1/2 warren street, hudson // $45

Waking up in cis-white-patriarchal-capitalist dominated culture is *hard as hell*. The effects on our bodies, thought processes, spirits and ways we connect to one another are real and ever present. We need resiliency for our everyday movements so that we can stand powerful in our collective ones. Adaptogenic herbs, plant spirit medicine, spell casting, and medicine making are tools for self-preservation, potency, and community wellness that we'll learn. This workshop starts with you, but works towards casting our collective spells to dismantle the bullshit and uplift the sparkle, because when we gather to take good care of each other, we dazzle on a whole new level!

please RSVP "Resiliency" to wildgather@gmail.com

Sun 1/21 11a-3p:: Culturally Compassionate Plant Spirit Medicine

register here! Maha Rose, 97 Green St G3, Brooklyn, NY

This workshop is about working through our own unique experiences of how we have and currently identify with spirit. Navigating spirit as we live and participate in a society that upholds and celebrates colonization and patriarchy, affects how we understand, practice, feed and recognize spirit in their many forms. Whether you're Indigenous or POC living in america who has had to hide their practice and ritual in the home, or who have experienced effects of forced assimilation; or whether your ancestors were the perpetrators of colonization, or whether you grew up with traditions or religion that encouraged the spread of colonization, we can often hold trauma around how we access and acknowledge spirit. This may make spirit work feel hard to approach, reclaim and practice, especially if we want to uplift Indigenous knowledge without appropriating or exploiting it's values. We'll spend time collectively looking at Plant Spirit Medicine - what it means to us, how we practice it and how we incorporate the teaching and medicines as tools in our everyday lives. We'll etch out time to prioritize unpacking our personal traumas we experience through individual activities, group conversation, flower essence making and spell craft. Folks will take home a plant essence and charmed candle we make together, to support their ongoing practice in connecting with spirit outside of class. $125

spring ephemerals class

Spring ephemerals are perennial woodland plants that quickly bloom, seed, and disappear into dormancy - just as the trees begin to leaf out. This is a powerful + special time to witness these ancient plants. Let's meet at one of our spots in the woods and do so. Many of our native, spring ephemerals are endangered or at-risk. We'll discuss the impact of over-harvesting + strategies on how we can be better allies to these woodland wonders by making an ephemeral flower essence without harvesting the plant.

Saturday, April 22nd, 1 p.m.- 4 p.m.

Sliding Scale $35- 55

Location will be given upon R.S.V.P to wildgather@gmail.com
