Asian American Herbalism
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for a talk on our relationship to Asian American culture, herbalism and ancestral medicine. Herbalist and activist, Erin Wilkins, will discuss how race, diaspora and generational healing work informs her experience as an Asian American woman practicing traditional Asian herbalism.
Erin is a fourth-generation Japanese American with agricultural roots in Sonoma County going back to the turn of the century. She will share parts of her family history to illuminate the power of language and the importance of knowing- and owning- our stories. There will be time for prompted journaling, self-reflection and qi gong meditation during this class. And Erin will share her favorite herbs to work with in clinical practice and how the Eastern and Western energetics interplay.
- The zoom meeting link will be sent out via confirmation email and 24 hours prior to class.
- A recording of the workshop will be sent out to all participants following the event (expires after 1 month).
- Please note that this is a community care class, not a professional development course.
- Erin is an Asian American herbalist and Japanese acupuncturist. Her clinical work is rooted in Eastern energetic theory (Japanese and traditional Chinese medicine) -- tapping into her own ancestral healing traditions to empower others to restore health and prevent illness.

She founded Herb Folk in 2016 to spotlight Asian American herbalism and to serve the community by making holistic health care more accessible.
