Healing Justice Practice Space Herbal Medicine Fundraiser – self love potion #9 available now!

self love

For the third year in a row, the Allied Media Conference (aka the best conference in the universe) is hosting a Healing Justice Practice Space!  The Healing Justice Practice Space is an all-gendered, all-bodied space for practicing and receiving healing. We’ll offer all participants in the AMC community massage therapy, energy work, community acupuncture, herbal therapy, counseling, first aid, art therapy, dance, yoga, and more! Our work uplifts and politicizes the role of health and healing in our movements as a critical part of the world we are building. We recognize that medicine is media; how we heal ourselves is directly related to how we engage in individual and collective transformation.

Over 40 radical healers will be offering free community based healing services to folks at the AMC over three days of transformative healing hoo-ha bliss. In order to support healers getting to the AMC, the dedicated all-volunteer coordinators of the Healing Justice Practice Space are selling. . .  wait for it:

The Healing Justice Practice Space is an all-gendered, all-bodied space for practicing and receiving healing. We will offer all participants in the Allied Media Conference, community massage therapy, energy work, community acupuncture, herbal therapy, counseling, first aid, art therapy, dance, yoga, and more! We will also provide skill-sharing, creative documentation of our process, and ‘101 workshops’ on health and healing justice and its intersections with media-based organizing.

In this practice space we will collectively build an in-house and online Resource Center to hold the incredible wealth of information and strategies developed by fierce healers and activists around the country. Our work uplifts and politicizes the role of health and healing in our movements as a critical part of the world we are building. We recognize that medicine is media; how we heal ourselves is directly related to how we engage in individual and collective transformation.

Reminders by Texta, text by Fabian Romero

“Health Is Dignity and Dignity Is Resistance”

What is health justice? How are health & human rights fiercely connected to the wellness of our neighborhoods? How do we reframe policy debates? How do we continue dreaming and building instead of just reacting & surviving? And how do we support each other in our healing?

SouLar Bliss is a community space to create, share, and discuss self and community care recipes, rituals, remedies and resources.

This space:
*Shares stories of our journeys, challenges, and triumphs towards healing and loving ourselves and communities whole
*Honors our his/her/ourstories with pain and trauma and uses them as sites to celebrate the power and resiliance we have to break all rules, traditions, and patterns that hinder us
*Offers free to low-cost resources available in New York City that support our healing, rejuvenation, relaxation, transformation, mindfulness, and individual and collective wellbeing.

We are fearless creators, wise magicians, prolific prophets in motion, fashioning worlds aligned with our deepest desires. This space is a recognition of that power and an awareness of the obstacles that attempt to get in the way. Resources abound to support our healing. Intuitive guides are willingly available in many manifestations to answer the myriad of questions that thread our realities. Seemingly, there are not a lot of recipes, rituals, remedies and resources available to replenish our minds, bodies and spirits. I beg to differ!!! We have more resources for our use than we realize, many of which exist in our own minds, bodies and spirits.

It is my prayer that one or many of these offerings will speak to you, walk with you, stand by you, laugh with you as we dance our way to wholeness.
