Herbs for Resilience: Plant Allies for Times of Undoing with Laura Marie Ruocco

  • Antidote Brooklyn 200 Franklin Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

Plants have powers that can reach us on both the physical and spiritual plane. In these times, as multiple ongoing, intersecting social and political crises come to a head, what wisdom can we glean from our plant teachers? How can understanding plants as teachers help us transition from fear and alienation to personal transformation? Challenging the individualism of mainstream "wellness" rhetoric, this class takes inspiration from Janet Kent and Dave Meesters' radical vitalism framework—which acknowledges the interconnectedness of all life on this planet. We root healing work within a social, political and ecological context, and a commitment to challenging all forms of oppression.

$30 includes a tincture we will make together in class.
