new monthly program: plant meditations
with herbalist rachel burgos
January 21, 2018 at 1pm behind the bail bonds

On Sunday, January 21st at 1pm, join herbalist Rachel Burgos (of Snakeroot Apothecary) in creating a community Materia Medica based on direct experiences we will have with plants. Over the next few months we will build this body of collected knowledge through plant meditations, medicinal plant walks, and conversations about our relationships with these beings. Everyone is welcome, free of charge with no sign ups required!

"Plant meditations are non-linear ways for us to sit with and listen to the information these plant spirits offer. As everyone's energy varies, our experiences differ, but oftentimes we can find a common thread. As we familiarize ourselves with this method of connecting and communicating with plants we can share our experiences and knowledge with others. The objective of this project is to connect humans with plants to help heal our communities and ecologies through establishing reciprocity, reverence, and respect for non-human spirits."

Rachel Burgos is an herbalist residing in the Mojave desert town of Joshua Tree, California or occupied native Cahuilla land. She dedicates her clinical work to provide preventative health care and education using plant, stone, animal & earth medicines in a holistic way. This encompasses but not limited to focusing on the patterns of imbalance we create through various traumas, ancestral patterning for both chronic and acute, emotional, physical or spiritual imbalances.
