Decolonizing Healing Ways

Decolonizing & Decentralizing Healing Ways: Ancestral and Abuelita Knowledge for Today

This workshop will focus on deconstructing the structures and institutions that are barriers to health and wellness in our communities as well as seeking alternative wellness methods including herbalism and other ways of knowing and healing. We will begin to connect the dots and cycles of life by sharing about indigenous traditional ways of healing and how each of us can connect to our roots and decolonize health and medicine. The workshop will introduce natural and holistic healing methods, plants and traditions and bring forth the experiential knowledge that the participants in the circle have including family and home recipes, remedios, etc. We will also create and take home personalized tea blends for our health and healing needs and encourage all to continue this path of healing and share with others.
