Grounding Into Your Own Ancestral Medicine
Time & Location
About the Event
This class will explore the benefit of grounding into our own ancestral medicine as a tool to cultivate awareness and connection for ethical healing practices. Teacher, Sam Raridon, will address how this work is an essential part of decolonizing holistic medicine and will hold space to unpack guilt and grief surrounding privilege and white supremacy in holistic medicine spaces. This workshop will include grounding exercises, free writes, story telling, dialogue and the sharing of helpful practices to begin creating a foundation for this life long journey.
We will close by learning grounding rituals and making a mugwort smudge.
