FOLK HERBALISM FOR PEACEFUL RESISTANCE 
LOCATION: TOPANGA, CA – LOCATION PROVIDED UPON REGISTRATION
Every act you make in partnership with the Earth is an act of Peaceful Resistance. Every seed you plant, every cup of tea you drink, and every wound you heal with a homemade salve is a powerful declaration of independence and resistance. Folk Herbalism represents a bond and trust in the wild world. When you choose herbs, you choose to work in partnership with plants – our elders – to heal body, mind, and spirit.

Join us as we discuss ways to disconnect from the oppressive industrial system of today through the lens of Folk Herbalism. 

We’ll sip and blend nourishing infusions, create herbal remedies together, and much, much more.

$65 for early reg / $75 after April 22nd

GUEST TEACHER AT SCHOOL OF CONNECTION, DETAILS TO COME
LOCATION: THE MARIPOSA INSTITUE, UKIAH, CA

The School of Connection is a seven month journey of initiation and intuition designed to guide women further down the path of purpose and passion. Utilizing nature connection practices, deep soul inquiry, the way of council, archetypal studies, and a solo quest into the wild, we will dive into the mysteries of our individual souls to awaken the truth that lives within. The school meets one weekend a month from June-December, bringing us from the heat and activation of summer to the inward turning reflections of winter. We will apprentice ourselves to the seasons, exalt in both grief and praise, forge relationships with beings in all forms, and strengthen our will to live in a good way. Hosted by Hannah Jermstad.
