Spring 2020 Workshop Series
Movement through Spring with Plant Medicine with instructor Lara Pacheco
canceled – Join Lara Pacheco for a workshop of embodying qigong movements in connection with the Spring season while we sit with a few herbal allies. A plant walk may happen depending on the weather.
Participants will learn a few movements to take home with them through the Spring season. Folks will also learn some information about properties of a few herbal allies and will also bring home some herbal tea to deepen this seasonal transition. The workshop will be a blend of sitting, plant meditations and movement and if the weather is nice, then a walk with movement by the ocean. There will be tea to enjoy throughout.
Lara Pacheco is a Taíno, Latinx mamita that believes part of our collective liberation is accessed through decolonizing ourselves and weaving into the web of ancestral medicine. Lara directly works through this realm with plants, fungi, puppets, music and movement. When not caring for their family, land and creatures, Lara runs Atabey Medicine of Seed and Thistle Apothecary, an educational resource that centers Queer, Trans and Gender fluid Black and Indigenous voices within herbalism. Within Atabey Medicine is La Cliníca de Bien Estar/Seasonal Wellness Clinic, in which apprentices begin offering herbal care to our marginalized communities in model of exchange so that our communities may remember their own healing traditions. Lara is also a part of Ling Gui Healing Qigong International School 2 year teacher training.
