Date & Time
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Indigenous-based healers are leading the way in reimagining care through ancestral work, plant medicine, community practices, and ritual that empowers deep healing. Join Karen Rose as she draws from the legacy of healing traditions from Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin American, and guides us in preparing ancestral medicine using rose and tulsi (holy basil) to heal ancestral trauma, sorrow, loss, and grief. She was first inspired by this legacy, the foundation her healing practice, as a child in her native Guyana, where she was exposed to the profound influence of those traditions in community healing.
Topics will include:
- What is a medicine holder
- Healing and ritual
- Our ancestral connection to this medicine
- The necessity to heal within the framework of a community
- The healing that plants and ritual offer
Note: A $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
