Welcome to the Medicine Blanket, my best offering of my global travels, and an educational interpretation of a traditional African healer’s medicine offering. This is a free flowing Practical Herbalism jam session. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about plant medicines, get nerdy on the nuances, or just sit and learn about a bunch of different topics we’re going to touch on. I offer a small menu of topics including: My favorite and most efficacious medicines, with a special shout out to bee propolis, neurological/brain beneficial medicines, herbal smoking blends for pleasure and reduction of tobacco and cannabis consumption, skin salve making, tincture making, and more complex extraction methods. We’ll have open sharing about our personal experiences, as well as my journeys throughout Southern Africa, during which I’ll introduce you to many ancient and ancestral plant medicines, their use, the cultures and tribes that carry these medicines, and the mysticism surrounding them. These are medicines that humanity itself evolved alongside. Some are unique in their action, and can help us in this very day and age. Youll get to try them! Such as: An uplifting little succulent with serotonin retaining effects that was used in sacred all-night dancing rituals, and has huge potential for anxiety and depression. A rare white root that gives you dreams and regenerates nerve/brain tissue. A powerful digestive tonic and detoxification medicine that is the oldest recorded plant medicine on earth...as well as possibly the most bitter taste youve ever experienced. (Its great!) And more! Free to attend, sample, and share. Drop ins are welcome at this free flowing herbal medicine jam session! Donations accepted. Trades and Purchases available. This educational activation is a different from most other offerings. It’s not a “presentation” to be on the schedule. I’ll be offering it for numerous hours at least twice during the event. When I’m there, it’s open. Daylight hours, unless I have lighting, then I can do it at night as well. We can even go on a plant walk if it flows and depending on what I find.
