Healing for Heavy Hearts
Time & Location
About The Event
*Please note that this workshop is solely for Womxn, Two-Spirit, Trans, Queer, and Non-Binary folx who identify as Anishinaabe (Anishinaabe, Ojibwe, Chippewa, Saulteaux, Oji-Cree, Odawa, Potawatomi, Algonquin) and/or Métis.*
In this online workshop, we will gather with three plant relations that offer relief, comfort, and strength to hearts healing from trauma, loss, and harm. We will be working with these medicines through learning to make an oxymel for a gentle plancestral support in working through tender wounds and heavy hurts. Together we'll learn about the medicinal properties and spiritual uses of these plants, 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 February 13th at 3PM PST/6PM EST, and registration will be permitted up to this date. If you register by February 3rd, you will be mailed all the workshop materials you need to make an oxymel for FREE, including three plant medicines we will be working with and materials to make the oxymel.
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.
Accessibility: If the making of the oxymel, including using a stove and pouring hot materials, raises accessibility concerns for you, please mention this during registration and we can send you a premade oxymel or work with you to complete certain steps for you beforehand. We are exploring options for closed captioning for future workshop videos, but it may not be offered in time for this workshop: please mention this at registration and we will do our best to make this workshop suitable for your abilities. A typed document summarizing the knowledge shared as well as the step-by-step oxymel-making instructions will be sent to all participants, but if you require more thorough notes to access the knowledge, please mention this as well and we will prepare these for you. All other accessibility concerns are welcomed and supported!
