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 woman 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 meditations during this class. And Erin will share her favorite herbs to work with in clinical practice and how the Eastern and Western energetics interplay.
