Find Your “Good Medicine”

Medicine, to Native Americans, means the presence and power embodied in or demonstrated by a person, a place, an event, an object, or a natural phenomenon. It may be something you have, a ‘medicine object’ that has the power to affect your or another’s well-being. Good medicine gives you a sense of sacredness or sacred power.

Sometimes the medicine we need is a song, a story, a good friend. Sometimes it is time in nature or gathering with loved ones. In this one day workshop, Lynea and Carrie will help participants identify and connect to the good medicine they need during these trying times. Lynea will lead gentle yoga poses and inquiries that help us retrieve our power and our personal symbolism. Carrie, a Klamath Tribal Member, will share wisdom and indigenous practices from her culture that help us move through difficult times with grace and resilience.

We hope you will join us.
