Learn centuries of accumulated herbal knowledge-The Wisdom of Our Herbal Elders, from a Womanist perspective.
Womanist Herbology is for Sistahs who are latent healers that choose to use the journey of Herbalism and other dynamic her-storical “Grown-Ass Women” to stimulate her Healer within using Herbs.
Women who desire to learn about & use herbs in an Empowering, Revolutionary, Earth-based, Sistah Circle, Sheroe-Style.
There has been a long, centuries old tradition of Women healing our families and communities with herbs.
Many of us have family stories of healing, but most of us, we have no specific legacy or knowledge on what to do beyond “Lemons, Garlic & Ginger” and maybe some whiskey.
Womanist Herbology completes the circle.
It Teaches you about Herbs, shows you how to use them and why it is important for Women to retain this traditional knowledge.
Time for you to Unleash your Womanist Healer in the tradition of taking back your traditional power as a Woman Healer!
Women are the most powerful beings on the Planet, they keep everyone alive…..
So, use your untapped power to heal…. and learn from the best…from a Womanist perspective.
Reconnect your understanding of our connection to the Earth, Moon and the Plants.
We Give honor to the Sistahs that were bold enough to be brave and try things that were against logic, polite society and patriarchy.
They were not given permission, they took it.
Give in to your positive reactions and your ability to create something necessary where there is nothing…
Recognize that we are all Healers and stimulate your Healer-self, because it helps you to heal while you heal others.
Connect to the Womanist tradition of connecting to creating things that are useful, that work, inspire and motivate.
And reject that which no longer serves us.
This work reveals our inner strength and fortitude to step back into a tradition universally designed to nourish us and our families.
Womanist Herbology is here because we need this.
It was a part of our community in the form of internships and training, but these have fallen away.
It is different, because we are different.
Womanist Herbology fills that space to create-speak our truth heal, dream, try, try-again and celebrate joy & success, all the while daring to be who we are and always have been-Different!!
That difference, Sistah, is the key…
You are different for a reason! It’s hard to tell as a youth what you are to do with this difference.
This Womanist Herbology is a part of that! It connects us with our powerful wisdom of the elders tradition and confirms our path.
You already know that healing is in there, but perhaps didn’t know how to connect it.…
Here is just one way, Womanist Herbology…You may already be practicing other ways of healing and need to expand even more.
Some of us already collect and keep jars, containers and places full of herbs, crystals, stones, shells, seeds, creams, seaweeds and ideas..
Allow your expansive Womanist revolutionary self to arise and start expressing your other hidden super powers.

There is no “next time” for this Live class…this class will be recorded and may be offered in the future or .....
Why is this important?
Our lens on Life is who we are, who we are raised to be, combined with our Life experiences and the foundation that we’ve been given to operate from.
Women of Color have a different lens on the world. And that needs to be acknowledged, celebrated and learned…. all of that and Herbs! So Empowering!!
