Like you, we’re concerned about our communities impacted by both pandemics as ordinary life is disrupted, jobs are put on hold, paid gigs and events are canceled, and service industries close as we collectively reorganize our lives, integrating our entire world into our homes. We’re being asked to reevaluate the way we connect and relate to each other and the world, to prioritize the well being of the collective before the individual. Please know that we stand with you all in solidarity and support during this time, especially those in the margins who are disproportionately affected.
We believe we stand at the crossroads of liberation and healing in the midst of an important sociopolitical moment and that we have a responsibility to respond to this public health crisis, both in pandemic and in the black lives matter movements happening across the nation. Many of our practitioners are offering free and by donation support to those needing care.
There is much hope and inspiration to be found as we come together, collectively sharing activism, resources, civic funding, and mutual aid. While it’s tough, we are so honored to be a part of these communities helping one another. We've shared some of these resources with you, below.
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO ANY OF THE ABOVE IF YOU ARE ABLE
whatever you are feeling is valid
Right now, many of us are experiencing profound personal grief, loss, and panic. We are worried about our families, our friends, our livelihoods, and the state of the world amid a pre-existing, low grade, persistent gnawing sense of dread around the ravages and inequalities of late stage capitalism, the real impacts of global warming, and a government who puts wall street above its citizens.
Many of us have nervous systems that are barely coping with this collective trauma as we try to navigate feelings of threat, danger, overwhelming fear, triggers of old traumas and resurgence of mental health difficulties.
It’s normal to feel hypervigilant, anxious, depressed, numb, frozen or any other range of emotions you are feeling. It is all valid.
We live within a system that, by design, capitalizes on our being overworked and undervalued. There will be lasting implications as we all become increasingly aware of the ways in which our system is flawed as we begin to turn our communal efforts and resources towards compassion, connection, and kindness.
YOUR ABILITY TO BE PRODUCTIVE DOES NOT DEFINE YOUR WORTH This is an opportunity to foster radical acts of kindness, care, and compassion-- for yourself and your community-- and unravel the ways in which we have internalized this programming.
We are a collaborative of independent practitioners and teachers coming together to create intentional spaces for healing and learning. Our intention is to create an accessible and inclusive space which prioritizes the need for both self-care and community-care as tools for resilience and liberation. We endeavor to create right relationships and reciprocity with the land and its ancestors and are working to re-center marginalized voices and experiences to create space for all races, genders, abilities, class, and education levels within the healing arts community.
OUR APOTHECARY is open to clients and students, otherwise by appointment only. We offer bulk herbs and natural remedies for self-care and energetic hygiene.
OUR PRACTITIONERS offer private sessions including bodywork, shadow work, ritual, tarot, astrology, energy healing, herbal consults, acupuncture, and trauma informed care.
OUR CLASSES include ancestral reconnection, practitioner trainings, ayurveda, tarot, herbalism, breathwork, self-care rituals, ceremony, sound baths, astrology, liberation + anti- oppression work, and more.
