Event description
How native plants can play a role in tending to our nervous systems and well-being in an accessible way

About this event

This two-part online workshop will be held on Saturday Dec. 4th & Sunday Dec.5th 10:00-11:00 AM.

In this 2 part series we will gather and explore how native plants can play a role in tending to our nervous systems and well being in an accessible way.

In our first session we will explore:

  • How we can respectfully build relationships to the native plants on the lands we occupy or are from.
  • How the nervous system responds to stress
  • The nervous system in direct relationship to aromatics.
  • The medicinal properties of a handful of California Coastal Sage Scrub plants
  • How to make accessible medicine from the native plants we tend to.

Our 2nd session will explore:

  • A brief introduction to the energetics of plants and our bodies.
  • How having a better understanding of the energetics of plants can assist us in knowing what plant to build relationships with when we are ill or tending to stress.
  • The medicinal properties of another handful of native plants.
  • How Indigenous traditions have always understood energetics and some practices. In this series we will gather and explore how native plants can play a role in tending to our nervous systems and well-being in an accessible way. We will discuss the different ways we can incorporate native plants to our landscaping, gardens and healing process.
