Atabey School of Cultural Healing - The Roots of Herbalism - Spring 2020
The Atabey School of Cultural Healing prioritizes the stories, voices and experiences of people of color presently and historically. The first programs of this school are intended for and exclusively offered to self identified people of color. Asc3nsion Art and the Atabey School of Cultural Healing are dedicated to deconstructing the ideas and stigmas that often times keep us from learning how to utilize plant medicine, and further colonize the lens in which we view and experience our cultural histories, traditions and rituals.
This school and course serves to help reconnect people to their personal power and ability to work with plant medicine and a variety of earth based healing modalities.
