FOSTERING CONNECTION: Using Herbs, Body Awareness, and the Earth as Your Allies in Times of Stress
Herbalist Rebecca Altman talks about honoring your own knowing and the healing power of connection-to the earth, to community, to yourself. She shares helpful herbs to support yourself during times of stress.
Rebecca Altman, herbalist, healer, and writer, aspires to connect you to the Earth, to the untamed core of who you are, and help you find the space to express that into the world.
Rebecca Altman wears many hats. She makes things (herbal bath, body, face and medicinal products); writes things (plant monographs, ramblings about nature and being human); and does healing work (herbal and energetic). She also spends a lot of her free time in the wilds, [ethically and reverently] gathering the herbs she use to make things. Her goal, as a maker and healer, is to connect you to the earth, to the untamed core of who you are, and to help you find the space to express that into the world. She teaches a year long course called The Wonder Sessions that aims to do all that in one class. Her writings can be found at thornandwonder.com and her amazing herbal products can be found kingroadsapothecary.com .
"WHEN WE ARE CUT OFF FROM THE WORLD AROUND US, I THINK LIFE BECOMES SO MUCH MORE STRESSFUL BECAUSE WE THINK WE HAVE TO BEAR THE BURDEN FOR ALL OF THIS ALONE. AND WE DON'T. WE ABSOLUTELY DON'T."
