Botanical Kink with sára abdullah
Open and clear communication, consent, and boundary-setting are at the root of healthy, pleasurable relationships--from the self and partnership to sex and plant medicine. Too often, personal boundaries are never established or they are transgressed causing fragmentation in these relationships. There are several, local plants that can facilitate re-integration of these fragments and help us connect to the wisdom of cultivating an open heart and protecting yourself. Through building presence and relationship with these plant allies, we'll explore the kinky side of plants and how they can heal and support our relationship to pleasure and boundaries.
sára is an indigenous SWANA/Pinay non-binary femme Muslima descended from nomadic dreamweavers, kitchen witches, tricksters, and storytellers. She honors those who came before and those who gather with her in circle through a life's work in plant medicine, healing, pleasure activism, magic, writing, and nurturing the creative spirit in herself and others. As a poet, storyteller, cultural organizer, and healing artist, she is committed to uplifting radical tenderness, (re)membering embodied knowledge, and building collective liberation. She is the creator of earth seed holistic, a healing practice and consultancy that provides botanical offerings, herbal consultations, creativity coaching, energy work, full-spectrum doula companionship, and workshops centered in plant medicine and nurturing the creative spirit.
