About the Event
Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde
As we collectively vision and protest for a different future, we must remember self-care. Now more than ever each of us needs nourishment and radical (from the root) alignment with nature. Radical Self-Care: a Doula’s Guide to Herbal Medicine is a 3 part course in which we will commune with plant allies to nourish the body and nervous system from a wise woman perspective. Our plant allies offer nourishment and medicine as co-conspirators for our healing and liberation. In this space we center and hold the voices and lives of Queer, Trans, and Black/Indigenous People and Immigrants.
Participants will learn herbal self-care techniques such as cooking with herbs, water based herbal preparations, and herbal body care. By the end of the course, you will have the tools to care for yourself and your loved ones with nourishing food and herbs.
Rochelle Jamila Wilbun is a full spectrum doula, herbalist, and movement artist. She believes plant medicine is the people’s medicine and that alignment with the Earth is all of our birthrights. Rochelle calls on the traditions of wise women, mothers, doulas, and caretakers to share herbal practices for fortifying and pouring into the self.
