About this Event

Join us at the West Berkeley Family Wellness Center for an immersive experience that celebrates the power of nature. In this in-person event, we will explore the healing properties of the four elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.

**For Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPOC) and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) with Batul True Heart of Maaso Medicina

In this free, 4-week series we will make time to connect with one element of nature per week. Through hands-on workshops and guided activities, you will learn how to harness the energy of each element to create your own natural remedies. We will be curious about our emotional well-being as it relates to our relationship with nature. Made of the elements ourselves, we are each an integral part of nature. We will remember our humanness, and our own unique essence, as we transmit it through our medicines.

Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your connection with nature and learn how to incorporate the healing elements into your daily life. Join us for this one-of-a-kind medicine-making series and unlock the power of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.
