Herbal Medicine - Women’s Health


Friday 15:00 - 18:00 & Saturday 10:00 - 17:00

For anyone who has previously participated in an Introduction to Herbal Medicine workshop, or who has a particular interest in any of the advanced sessions outlined below.

The session will be for any women, gender non-binary and trans folk for whom the issues are of interest.

All welcome - whether you’re new to some of these ideas/conversations or want to contribute of your own body of knowledge.

This workshop will use Threads - a DIY, not-for-profit book - as a basis for information exchange and shared conversation about anatomy, sex & gender, and the various differences and commonalities of experiences throughout the menstrual cycle. It will look at what gets called ‘PMS’, and also at what gets called ‘mental’ health, and will critique biomedical stories we are given about the body/mind as part of opening up space to explore our different and similar lived experiences, and to consider both what health and what ‘self-care’ mean in the context of social justice and social change. We will also look at herbs and self-care for some common women’s health issues.

Facilitated by Lisa Fannen
