Flower Essences for Freedom Fighters: Supporting those at the forefront of the human liberation movement.

Our social justice fighters, our educators, our body workers, our sisters and brothers - the majority of whom are people of color - those fighting for others under the constant criticism and literal threat of the public eye - who supports them? Young ones are choosing to end their lives, giving their very blood to a cause that can seem overwhelming and unattainable. What support as a community can we/do we provide?

We will discuss self care practices centered around emotional protection and the importance of healing in community. We will talk about the notion of self sacrifice v self love. We will discuss what being an ally to people of color, indigenous peoples and the lgbtqx community can look like in people’s respective communities. I will provide several essences and their properties and folks can make their own custom blends to take home.
