Intro to Asian American Herbalism
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for a talk on our relationship to Asian American culture, herbalism and ancestral medicine. In this introductory herbalism workshop, we will learn the theory and practice of Asian American herbalism. Drawing upon traditional Eastern theory, Erin Wilkins will lead the class on herbalism and traditional practices to benefit Mind-Body-Spirit. We'll discover how this knowledge can be applied to daily life and cultivated in a healing practice. In this class you will learn:
- What is Asian American herbalism? How it works in theory, the natural world and clinical practice.
- Introduction to Eastern energetic theory and history.
- Erin's favorite herbs to work with to benefit Mind-Body-Spirit.
- Time for prompted journaling, self reflection and Qigong meditation.
This class can be taken on it's own or as the first of a four part series on herbalism for Mind-Body-Spirit.
- 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.
