Land Sovereignty & Healing as a Birthright for BIPOC Lives

Finding grounding in these tumultuous times can be difficult, especially for our most vulnerable communities. Coming back to the land for healing, connection, and to discover true embodied sovereignty is a beautiful remembering for Black, Indigenous, Queer and Trans, communities in these times. This session will explore the themes of healing and returning to the land and land-based traditions as a way of grounding. We will sit with the stories and insights of three speakers, each walking a path of tending to land and plants, and creating access for their communities to find sanctuary, sovereignty and wholeness.

Speakers: Mary Crowe, Juniper, Tavia Benjamin
