We open with intentions and prayers for the sacred learning container we will be in for the next twelve weeks. We get to know each other and lay out the digital framework of education. 

How do we practice respectful, effective, and trauma-informed holistic healing? How to spot red flags within altered states and holistic (and traditional) healing communities. The art of being an advocate and ally in today’s modern world, and within the spaces of psychedelics and altared states. Being a resource, advocate, and a trauma-informed practitioner.

Cardinal directions (foundations) of making and interacting with the Plant Nations through a traditional Indigenous lens. We will host a special guest instructor speaks on integrity when working with plant medicines and while in altered states.

Herbal allies to practice holistic care of your reproductive organs.  These include herbs to support in healthy cell production, tonification, STIs, scarred tissue remediation, maintaining boundaries, and energetic cleansing. Herbal wellness as traditional practice to address sexual & reproductive trauma.

A time to sing our medicine.  This teaches us the importance of finding ones' authentic voice, and using it clearly and effectively. We will learn about and remember practices for tapping into one's real medicine without culturally appropriating. Harnessing real medicine songs in order to liberate and heal sexual + reproductive traumas.

A time to rest, review and practice our skills.  There will be some lightweight extra credit assignments and practicums to allow us to deepen into our practice.

Traditional shamanic and herbal practices + recipes for energetic, emotional, spiritual, and physical protection.  These skills can be applied to yourself as you navigate altared states and can be taught to people you're supporting as they journey.

Hands on medicine making workshop.  All supplies will be shipped to you.  A follow-along practice in tinctures, salves, balms, pusangas, and spritzers for your healing practice.

The integration of advocacy and trauma-informed care into your practice (personally and for others). This includes some of the business and legal aspects aspects of being an advocate.

Weaving the stories of our own experiences. Reclaiming threads of us which may still be tangled in other's stories. Practice witnessing others and acknowledging our own experiences from a neutral and non-reactionary state.

We celebrate, congratulate and begin the certification process to the students who completed their course work.  It's a time of reflection and gratitude for how deeply we've grown.
