March 14th, 2018 Workshop Join Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers in medicine making from an Indigenous health care practice and applied learning perspective. In this workshop, participants will learn how to create a moisturizing cream and an herbal salve that heals and moisturizes the skin. You will be guided by holistic teachings from experienced practitioners; Jeri Sparrow and Tonya Gomes. They bring a collective knowledge on the use of plants, their healing properties and provide space for participants to experience and learn what it's like to make herbal skin products.

This workshop provides an introduction to medicine making in the context of facilitating conversations about land-based practice, Indigenous knowledge, and reconciliation. It also provides the guidance needed to safely make herbal products. As there are important medicinal considerations that go along with individual plants, their combinations, and potential interactions with other medications participants are encouraged to take advanced studies in herbology before making herbal products on their own. The Medicine Collective acknowledges the ancestral territory of the Musqueam peoples, whose guidance and collaboration is central to their work.
