Herbal Allies

  • Medicine NEST 532 Herald Street Victoria, BC, V8W 1S6 Canada (map)

Where do we as humans fit within the larger ecology and forces of life which we witness? When did we forget our inherent interdependence with the living world of plant, animal, water, mineral and soil? How does our re-connection and re-writing of our narrative as a collective heal our individual pursuits for meaning and belonging?

Join us as we gather to celebrate the one year anniversary of Medicine NEST with herbalist Jumana Risheq in an evening of re-imagining the mythos of what it means to be human from an ecological perspective.

In this gathering we will be diving into the waters of identity and relationship to self and other in an evening of gathering, story-telling and circle through the lenses of the individual, plants, animals, ecologies, and the cosmology of the earth as a breathing and feeling meta-organism of which we are a part.

We will be exploring the history of life from the perspective of the co-evolution with plants, landscapes, cosmologies and each other. Throughout our evening together we will be story telling from the forgotten mythos of humanity and holding space for reflection, support and sharing for what these narratives reveal in our identity and path.

We will be exploring the mystical, mythological, emotional and physiological branches of three plants allies at this gathering through an organoleptic tasting and discussion. Based on which plants you are most drawn to loose herb blends of your plant ally of choice will be offered to you as a gift to journey and work with until we gather again.

We will be concluding our time together with a movement practice which flows through internal martial arts, yoga and barre, breathing exercises and Anapana meditation to support the integration of the tools we will be exploring together.
