Move, Settle, Rest

This class will support your nervous system to relax and heal. Rather than 'overcoming' trauma, we are building skills to allow health to come to our awareness, to feel okay in our own skin and to notice how trauma interferes with our finding safe space within our self. We use gentle seated, standing and lying down movement to help us to feel our body as a whole. Then we rest and settle, continuing with eyes softly open and/or closed. The instructor will assist with participant comfort and settling by using biodynamic craniosacral touch.

Emotional Intelligence and Relational Work

Emotional Intelligence and Relational Work is, arguably, the meaning of life. We will explore herbal support for magical boundary-setting, the science of the nervous system and plants that help with stress, ways to take care of our hearts both physically and emotionally, romantic medicine so as to value our pleasure, and practical exercises to hone this profound set of skills, especially if you do any kind of collective organizing or work in groups. We will collaborate to create flower essence blends that you will take home to guide you.

Brunem Warshaw is a clinical herbalist and wellness educator who combines both western and energetic approaches to support people in healing themselves with the assistance of plant medicines. Brunem studied with the Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine in 2011 and with the Blue Otter School of Energetic Herbalism in 2015. Brunem's lens as a practitioner and teacher is trauma-informed, disability-affirming, queer, harm reductionist, and grounded in their experience as a white person with Irish and Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. Their care practice over the years has ranged from medicine-making in the garden, street medicking at political actions with the Rosehip Medic Collective, collaborating to create and staff pop-up clinics in several outdoor settings (both urban and rural), doing hospice and support work at assisted living facilities and in homes, teaching classes in a variety of venues including herb schools, seeing clients one on one in their clinical practice, providing quick consults at retail apothecaries, and working as an herbal pharmacy technician. Brunem's concepts of health and healing are politicized and in relationship with ancestral magic. They are humbled to facilitate people’s connection with the beauty and generosity of the plant world.

Move, Settle, Rest

This class is for those who have identified the need to support their nervous system in relaxation in order to heal. Rather than 'overcoming' trauma, we are building skills for allowing health to come to our awareness, to feel okay in our own skin and to notice how trauma interferes with our noticing safe space within our self.  We do not to get rid of anything. We can learn to widen our awareness and deepen our capacity to be with whatever comes up. These skills allow us to sense the difference between our self and the trauma patterns that seem to take us over. We use gentle seated, standing and lying down movement to help us to feel our body as a whole.   Then we rest and settle, continuing with eyes softly open and/or closed. The instructor will assist with participant comfort and settling by using biodynamic craniosacral touch.

Kristyn Demko Marshman has a private somatic therapy practice in Berkeley. Kristyn’s work aids to gently bring about new experience in the body, building safety needed for making our way out of the past and into the present. She is trained in Rosen Method, Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy and yoga, and is a mother of three.

Plant Magic and BDSM

Plant Magic and BDSM is a workshop about ways to integrate plants into kink-based exchanges as well as herbal aftercare for both physical and emotional issues that can emerge in this context. This will be a sex-worker-positive space and a nonjudgmental environment to discuss herbal first aid for workplace hazards and general self-care. We’ll get into the aftercare details for bruises, abrasions, burns, cuts, puncture wounds, strains, sprains, and some take-home ideas for navigating sexual trauma. Learn about multiple ways to include the beauty of plants as you prepare for and enjoy deviant activities. We’ll craft a healing oil together for you to take home.
