Freedom from Sexual Violence

Event: Herbal Remedies for Trauma


CO AntiViolence Program

This free workshop is an introduction to using herbs to support emotional healing from trauma. We will focus on three broad categories of plant actions: 

Herbs for the nervous system- Including nervines to relax muscular tension and anxiety, stop cyclic thought patterns, and promote a rhythmic sleep cycle. 
Herbs to support the liver- Including herbs to clear liver stagnation, aid in the break down and excretion of stress hormones, and improve digestion and appetite.
Herbs for the spiritual heart- Including herbs that can be grounding, can promote a calm and present mindset, and can assist a person in setting and maintaining boundaries.

This will be a hands-on class with opportunities to taste teas/tinctures and make sample herbal blends to take home. 

This class is geared toward survivors of emotional trauma, but non-survivors are also welcome. As teachers we are not experts; rather facilitators in a larger community of healing. If possible, please RSVP to or call 503-3041626 so that we can plan…but don’t let that stop you from coming! Please send me a message if on-site childcare would be helpful and we’ll work to arrange some.
