FLOWERS

reward item

Just the sight of a flower has the power to move us, shift us, transform us. When plant offer up their flowers, they are energetically at their most abundant + vibrant -- hoping to attract a beautiful bee or other pollinators to come caress their petals + pick up some of their precious pollen. Flowers radiate beauty + scents that delight the senses. They are also powerful protectors, which is why my Slavic ancestors planted them in front of their houses. I am so humbled by your generous monthly support!

About

Welcome! I'm cheré (rere) suzette bergeron of Sassafras Healing Arts.
I make medicine + magic for healing justice + collective liberation.

I am asking for your support in sustaining the accessibility, deepening + expansion of my practice, specifically through my newest offering, Wyrd Magic: Folk Practices, Medicines, + Rituals.

I am a seeker + steward of the old ways. My healing art practice is woven together from the lineages of my recent and more ancient blood ancestors, as well as my queer, femme, nonbinary, disabled, neurodivergent, crip, witch kin. I am a witch, herbalist, bodyworker, doula/companion, death midwife, traiteux, aspiring völva, ancestral seeker, astrologer, community organizer, + registered nurse. I am a descendant of Norse, Cajun (Celtic/Gaulic), Germanic, + Slavic peoples. I currently live, love, + locate my sliding scale fee, healing + disability justice-informed practice on Occupied Dakhóta + Anishinaabe Land in Minneapolis, MN.

I am inviting y'all to support me as I create new offerings born from the intersections of the following:
  • Direct requests from community re: content + online sharing
  • Most common topics / support provided in my 8 years of 1:1 work with clients
  • Deep reflection on what most excites me to learn, discuss, + share
  • My intuition, messages + directives from my ancestors

These will include musings through words, videos, + workshops centered around:
  • Ancestral Connection: Our Bodies + Altars
  • Plant Kin: Plants + Portals
  • Folk Ritual: Hearth + Earth
  • At the Thresholds: Companionship + Witnessing
  • Moondrops: Astrology + Lunar Living
  • and much more!

As a non-binary + chronically ill healer and creator nurturing an anticapitalist small business as a means of survival, I have faced a significant number of challenges and barriers.
I don't have the spoons to keep up or compete within in white supremacist + ablist wellness industrial complex. In the year of my 33rd solar return + 8th year of my practice, I am finally coming terms with this. I am re-envisioning my paradigm, expectations, offerings, and my dreams accordingly, and that includes asking for community support.

Your patronage will enable me to:
  • continue providing vital support within my communities + care webs,
  • further deepen + enrich my offerings,
  • lay the groundwork + build the healing infrastructures needed to dream, vision, + carry my bodymind + practice into the next decade.

Thank you for considering joining me in supporting the efficacy, accessibility, + sustainability of my healing arts practice! I would be so happy to have you as a patron!
