Why we need a herbal revolution- feat. Nawala Nightshade.

Description

This epic and moving episode is based around some questions that have been going round in ny head for some time now. I asked Nawa join me to share their perspectives on why we need herbal activism and where it is especially important. This helped to shine on a light on how we also need to continue to work of decolonising, connecting back to the mother and listening to indigenous people on these matters. Nawa is a herbalist, somatic coach, death doula and community organiser. Their healing practice is centred on anti-oppressive praxis that works to address systemic harm, informed by decolonial activism on the front lines, with respect to all who have fought and lost their lives for collective liberation. I was reminded of so much during this discussion, especially the collective pain we are feeling whether we are aware or not, from our disconnection from nature and traditional wisdom.
