##

This is the start of a compilation of links, books, articles about herbalism and other holistic healing modalities that complement it. It is an attempt to make herbal and holistic knowledge more accessible (again). You will find necessary resources covering topics like anti-oppression and inequity within healing since there will be no revolution without it- no matter how radical or revolutionary we believe ourselves to be.

This page is not meant to be exhaustive, it's a few steps on the revolutionary journey. There's a lot out there. *Please verify by cross-referencing with other sources and remember there is no one way to come at this healing work and for this reason there's a lot of seemingly contradictory information. 


Hopefully this will be a catalyst for folks to begin/continue on their path and even collaborate with others within the movement. There's much, much more to come. I'll update this periodically. Keep an eye out for specific freedom sessions/sharing circles which will make an attempt to break the information on this page down into smaller "lessons" (for the lack of a better word). Check out the Herbal Freedom School Program which is an online knowledge share that I facilitate.

*Click HERE for a preview of Freedom Session Volume 1 and HERE for a preview of Freedom Session volume 2.

*Email me at herbalfreedomschool[at]gmail[dot]com if you've got suggestions for links, books, articles, etc.

And please remember these words of elder herbalist Rosemary Gladstar:


"Don’t get lost in books and classrooms. Herbal medicine is not a career at all; it’s a lifestyle. Plants are a way of life. I get a little concerned that people are not connecting with the plants. They will be good healers in the sense that they will know how to use the medicines, but herbalism comes from the plants, and, ultimately, you can’t get it from books alone. The healing messages, the medicine comes from the plants. Grow the plants, sit with them, and make medicines with them. Learn to speak to them and listen to the plants... It is so wonderful that we have the opportunity to have books on this, but some of the greatest herbalists evolved without any of that...I do believe in studying, but students need to get their feet wet and experience it. I use herbs every day in some way. I cook with them, drink them as tea, commune with them, sleep with them and bathe with them."


One last thing-
One other way you can help me is, if you know of groups, organizations, queer resource centers, colleges or universities who would be interested in carrying the the Liberatory Medicine Collection or Warrior-Healer or Queering Herbalism Collection and you think they'd like to make these resources more accessible to more folks or if you know groups and organizations who might want to buy the Herbal Freedom School zines and Queering Herbalism guides in bulk for their libraries or resource centers, email me at herbalfreedomschool[at] gmail [dot] com. Also, if you know folks who have access to printing or who would like to sponsor printing and publication so donations can be made to folks who have less access and capital for the print books, email me. Lastly, if you have the means or know of anyone who has the means to donate a laptop and printer, please email me at the above email address.

Here's a wishlist in case you'd like to make a donation/offering.


Healing and Liberation,


Toi



And now without further ado...



(**Know that this page hasn't been majorly updated in about a year. I hope with your help with funding I can create a new website with updated and new information from the lessons at the new Herbal Freedom School Program and volumes of the Queering Herbalism Encyclopedia that I've been compiling).
