The struggle is real. Trash problems, water contamination, and pollution are causing serious illness left and right- to both ourselves and our environment and homes. Increased rates of cancer, bacterial infections, auto-immune illnesses, heavy metal toxicity, allergies, and weakened immunity in general. We need to know how to protect, strengthen, and heal ourselves and our families on a day-to-day basis. Good thing is, we are literally SURROUNDED with natural anti-bacterial, immune strengthening, and even cancer preventative, healing plants and medicines. We will work in collaboration with these abundant plant medicines to explore healing remedies that can benefit both us and our local environment.
This workshop is dedicated to equipping the people residing in Lebanon with an introduction to accessible, practical information and locally available herbal and nutritional remedies for strengthening and protecting our immunity in the face of increasing toxicity in our environments. We will start building relationships with a few local plantcestors (aka. herbal medicines) that can help us with this, and we will collectively prepare a remedy to help protect ourselves and our families and loved ones through the fall and winter and year round. We will learn some of the foundational principles of working with plants as medicine and how to approach this partnership in a respectful and sustainable way. We will learn and practice a technique for getting to know the plants that surround us every day and how they can be allies to our health and well being of body and spirit alike. As we consider the toxicity being caused to our bodies, we will conduct this workshop with utmost respect and reciprocity to our local environment which is also under attack, learning to heal this relationship through our work with the plants as medicinal allies.
