Ancestors Come Thru: Plant Relations for the Spirit World
Time & Location
About The Event
*Please note that this workshop is intended for folx who identify as Anishinaabe (Anishinaabe, Ojibwe, Chippewa, Saulteaux, Oji-Cree, Odawa, Potawatomi, Algonquin) and/or Métis.*
In this online workshop, we will sit with three plant relations that help us to ward off bad medicine and conjure happiness and luck; these medicines assist us in moving through the spectrum of darkness and light in our daily existences, and bring us closer to the ancestors, the spirit world, and those who have moved on. We will be working with these medicines through learning to make some rad lipstick and chapstick! Together we'll learn about the gifts these ancestral plant relations share with our bodies and spirits, some ancestral teachings with these plants, and the other ways you can work with them to craft healing.
This community-building knowledge share is taking place on December 28th (UPDATED), but if you register by December 12th, you will be mailed all the workshop materials you need to make lipsticks and chapsticks for FREE, including the three plant medicines we will be working with and all lipstick/chapstick making materials.
This workshop will be held online via Google Hangouts. More information on connecting through this platform will be shared via email closer to the workshop date.
