FOLK HERBALISM FOR PEACEFUL RESISTANCE 
LOCATION: TOPANGA, CA
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.

Location: Gaia School of Herbalism (location provided after registration)
