Nativa Remedies by Celeste Casillas: Community workshop, discussing ancient healing techniques is a modern setting. 

Many native cultures throughout the world have used plant medicine, herbs and meditative rituals to provide support, healing, restoration of the body, mind and spirit while creating a sense of community and a connection to the land and our ancestors. While many of us have experienced aspects of these healing traditions as children, most of us have lost the connection to the earth and our ancestral wisdom. In this workshop we will explore various benefits of our herbal allies through participating in meditative space clearing techniques, tasting teas, infusions and tinctures and by discussing our diverse personal experiences with traditional healing techniques. 

We will discuss how plant medicine easily fits into our modern lives and how 'ritualizing' our daily self care brings spiritual balance. Reconnecting with our elders and ancient traditions is an integral part of self awareness and strength. Each participant will be able to create an herbal salve to take with them.
