healing plant walk & experience - every other friday

**Final walk of the season is on October 26! Please check the MINKA calendar for updates.**


Every plant has medicine. We all knew this once, yet in only a few generations many of us have forgotten. Fortunately the memory is still there, deep in our bones. Here is an opportunity to remember.

Deeply rooted amidst the layers of built environment, healing plants are thriving. They are waiting to teach us resilience and other important lessons. Join us to learn from these wise teachers, our elders, the plants. 

We’ll begin class at MINKA Brooklyn and head out together to Prospect Park to explore the healing plants that grow all around us. Using all of our senses we’ll experience the plants, and connect with them in meditation. We’ll drink a nourishing infusion, either a plant that is currently growing in the park or one that is in season in our bioregion. In case of inclement weather, we’ll connect with the plants indoors, tasting infusions, looking at specimens, and in meditation.

Investment: $18-33

This workshop will be held rain or shine. If you have any questions, email: liz (dot) neves (at) mac (dot) com

post election nature connection for sanity and self-care

post election nature connection for sanity and self-care

Shocked? Dismayed? Angry? Depressed? Whatever your gamut of feelings, they are welcome. Feel them deeply and please join us for connection, self-care, sharing, and community.

I go to nature to be soothed and healed,
and to have my senses put in tune once more. 

~ John Burroughs

We have partnered with Kiki Valentine of Kings County Forest School to provide a two-ish hour long weekend nature walk in Prospect Park -- sans mobile phones or Internet -- that includes witnessing the changing foliage, a quiet and mindful walk in the woods learning about native healing and edible plants along the way, brief meditation, enjoying an herbal beverage, and behaving like children outdoors (with or without our children) to release tension and bring some peace back to our lives during this unprecedented time in history. 

Some childcare support will be available to families. Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.

Saturday, November 19 at 10am.
