Living in Relationship: an indigenous perspective on herbalism 11/20/2017

0.00

Embedded in the language of the Ojibwe people of the Great Lakes is a worldview that is quite unlike the worldview of the dominant culture.  It is a world where plants and animals have the same standing as human beings.  It is a world in which we can all communicate with each other.  It is a world of reciprocity and relationship.  In this workshop, led by herbalist and artist Lena Walker, we will explore different ways to interact with the plants we use for healing and food.  We will discuss the myriad ways that we can make plants a part of our daily lives and we will do a journey to a plant facilitated by the use of a flower essence that will empower you to find your own relationship with the plant people.
