at Tigerlily Holistic, 360 Jefferson St., Suite 1C, Brooklyn, NY, $65
Sun 1/21 11a-3p:: Culturally Compassionate Plant Spirit Medicine
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
Th 1/25 6-8pm :: Resiliency for Everyday Movements
at Good Fight Herb Co. herb shop ~ 253 1/2 warren st., hudson, ny
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! $45 ; RSVP "Resiliency" to firstname.lastname@example.org
A workshop by Slow Fashion artist, Katrina Rodabaugh, and Community Herbalist, Lauren Giambrone.

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 email@example.com
