frequently asked questions
who is this journey for?
solid question. it's our intention to create a sacred community for and by people who are black, indigenous, and from historically racially oppressed communities who are also cis women, queer, two-spirit, genderqueer, trans women + trans men. at this time our journey is not open to cis men.
is this an herbal apprenticeship?
nah. our experience together is a medicine + spirit-led journey. we work intimately with the medicine of spirit and our plant ancestors to meet our sacredness. we work with indigenous technologies to learn about plants and our ancestors. we offer you access to materials that seek to decolonize white supremacy from healing. we are invested in setting you up to be the healer you need + are, rather than training you to be an herbalist. that said, you will be able to find a foundation to continue herbalism as a discipline and apply it within your own life.
how does the distance learning journey work?
at the moment the experience consists of 2 live gatherings over zoom meeting [recorded in case you miss], 1 recorded gathering to be reviewed at you convenience, and 1-2 hours of home practice in between each gathering. review the month in xinachtli/seed, where we break down the structure of each gathering. we have an optional facebook and what's up group you may join to stay connected to the medicine. we work with plants that are native to turtle island with at least one plant a module that is from our lineages. at the beginning of the program you will receive a journey care package that will have all the plants that will be a part of our journey together!
how do i support the labor that it takes to put on this journey?
we love you. seriously. this is really tender, intimate and LABORIOUS work we share over the course of the 9 months we journeys together. there is work that you will not see that we do to prepare for you and our gatherings, communication behind the scenes, and spirit work to make this work possible + regenerative for every being on this journey with us. we humbly ask $1000 for our 9 month journey, over 100 hours of content, ceremony + gathering.
