UPCOMING SOUTH FLORIDA EVENTS
PLANTAS SAGRADAS AT HALLS OF AMENTI WYNWOODD
Honoring the Elements and Directions we will open the ceremony with intention and rituals to purify the space. We will work with a variety of herbal allies to help us ground into our bodies and send up our prayers. Alessandra, Raising Vibes Founder & Farmer begins with an introduction on hemp and cannabis. Carolina Francesca will offer a meditation & prayer as we intentionally work infuse our prayers with the sacred medicines. Alessandra will bring in movement to open up our joints, stretch our limbs, and drop into the physical body. We will shake out whatever is no longer serving us to flow & express ourselves! The conscious movement set will bring us to a transcendental state to aid in weaving our prayers into reality. We will take a moment to reflect and share any insights or breakthroughs that come forth through this harmonious experience. Alessandra & Carolina will end the evening with a closing ceremony releasing the directions and elements. A Vibe Tribe Drum Circle will follow. Bring a dish to share & feast afterwards if you would like!

HERBALISM WITH INTEGRITY
What is cultural appropriation in herbalism? How can we appropriate & exercise our own cultures herbal/ medicinal practices without harming the people whose lands we live on? How can we give back to the peoples whose lands we live on? How can we honor those people and our ancestors when living on foreign lands? What exceptions are allowed so that we can simply survive and remain as rooted in these ancient traditions as possible? What flys and what doesn’t fly living on stolen land?
The perspective and practices from an Afro Indigenous herbalist and herbal teacher; descendant of West African, Congaree First Nation, Italian, & Scottish ancestry.
