About



Many will agree that the "holistic healing" work largely visible to us today is not headed up by people of color. It's mostly headed up by white folks, rooted in white european history and does not honor in real ways all of the cultures and traditions that have been influential and at its roots. The School of Liberation Healing and Medicine is a space where we can share knowledge about suppressed black, brown, queer, two-spirit, trans and gender non-conforming healing histories.

We root ourselves in a decolonial framework and center marginalized perspectives on health and healing. We focus on indigenous ways of knowing and being, attempt to unlearn harmful western 'scientific' supremacy and spend time honoring our ancestral medicine and the medicine of our stories.

[In 2016] the first Herbal Freedom School program took place and it was an amazing experience to have so many like-spirited folks sharing the space together, connecting with decolonial and ancestral healing.

With a miniscule budget and less than a handful of co-visionary work exchangers we were able to make class videos and do skype interviews with teachers and community healers and develop some awesome lessons but this was not without some serious challenges and lack of sleep.

A lot more could have happened with a better platform, better equipment, paid staff and more resources.

With your recurring support so much more will be possible. We will be able to create:

  • More video (class videos, interviews, and vlogs)
  • Podcasts
  • Live and pre-recorded knowledge shares  
  • Programming on a more navigable platform
  • Zines using material discussed in the program

We're committed to accessibility and with more resources we can get away from YouTube's subtitles and purchase some decent transcription software.
We can also afford more online storage space to build the Liberation Library which will house some of the videos, audio, and zines. And last, but certainly not least, we can contract some folks from our communities to help with web development, graphic design, video editing and transcription.

Help co-create this anti-racist, decolonial space where we can share our histories and ancestral knowledge while centering indigenous, black, brown, queer, two-spirit, trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming communities.

And get some great rewards while you're at it, from access to private posts about what's happening behind the scenes and upcoming knowledge shares, video clips of interviews and exercises from the program to monthly e-zines, access to the zine and video library and seats in the Herbal Freedom School program, there's something for everyone. And you can always cap or change the monthly amount you give or cancel your subscription.

If you are looking for other ways to support- please consider donating items on the Herbal Freedom School Wish List.
Or donating a one-time (or however many times you want) amount directly to PayPal.

Healing and Liberation,

Toi
