Let's face it: this world can be stressful and traumatizing. And right now we need resistance and resilience more than ever. Whether you're marching in the streets, dealing with everyday hostility, or scrolling through your facebook feed, you may feel sad, depleted, angry, anxious, or otherwise emotionally taxed. Join herbalist Missy Rohs as we discuss ways to use medicinal herbs to help us stay emotionally well and resilient. We'll taste teas and tinctures as we talk about each plant. --- Missy Rohs is a community herbalist who loves indulgence. She co-directs the Arctos School of Herbal & Botanical Studies, where she teaches about medicinal plants, the magic of weeds, and more. She can also be found rabble-rousing, sipping cocktails, or hiking with friends. http://arctosschool.org https://www.facebook.com/events/1619864518309818/

***** Winter Version *** Proceeds from this class go to support the Winyan and Two Spirit Camp at Standing Rock. To register: go to http://bpt.me/2710568 This is a one day workshop focused on building a greater understanding of trauma and liberatory health for change makers, activists, healers and clinicians. This trauma primer covers the basics of trauma and beyond. We’ll review the current theories and understandings of emotional (as well as cultural, historical, systemic and ontological) trauma. Participants will come to understand the primary contributors and the major investigations in the realm of trauma. We will follow the physiological narrative of traumatic experiences centered within neuroscience, with special attention paid to the epigenetic processes. Each of these aspects will be placed within the context of radical public health and structural violence. The physiology of oppression (and privilege) will be reviewed. Clinical and community interventions will be covered, including herbal, naturopathic and allopathic. We’ll wrap up our day with a focus meaningful self-care and trauma stewardship. Cost: 60$ There is a sliding scale of 30-90$ with the true cost of the class being 60$. If cost is not a concern for you, please consider donating towards the top of the pay scale. This class is 6 CEUs for NDs and the cost is 150$. There are .5 pharm hours included. Simply pay 150$ at check out and you will receive your certificate upon completion of the class. The instructor is Lydia Anne M Bartholow, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, educator and community herbalist. Lydia specializes in the intersections of trauma, oppression and addiction. Hosted and sponsored by the Q Center! -- “Lydia somehow makes the neurobiology of trauma really fun and really easy to understand. I was [originally] intimidated but I left feeling energized” – Anonymous Student, 2015 “I had a strong appreciation for how much physiology was in the class, specifically within an anti-oppression context, which is widely underrepresented in trauma courses. I've been to so many over the last decade where trauma was only ever represented as a climatic experience, rather than a continuum so many people face” – Clara Bella Story Parnell, Herbalist, LMT, Medicine Maker "Lydia is an amazing, dynamic teacher who is teaching cutting-edge material about trauma. Taking her class turned ideas I had about trauma work on its head" -- Elissa Mendenhall, ND www.lydiabartholow.com https://www.facebook.com/events/604852159694780/

December 15th, 2:00pm update: The Do-Not-Buy vote is POSTPONED until next week due to lack of quorum at city hall today. Stay tuned for more information. Next week, the City Council will vote on the Socially Responsible Invistment (SRI) recommendations and what companies to include. Come support putting Caterpillar, Wells Fargo, and Bank of NY Mellon on the list. Caterpillar is involved with violations of the Standing Rock Sioux tribal rights and gross human rights violations against Palestinians over many years. Wells Fargo and Bank of NY Mellon are deeply complicit with the creation of private prisons. To add insult to injury, Wells Fargo was recently found to be defrauding thousands of customers by creating fake bank and credit card accounts in their names and funding the Dakota Access Pipeline.
