After our workshop, check out: MUJERES REVOLUCIONARIAS at 5:00pm!
“We write our story every day that we educate ourselves, every time we go to work, and the times we have become the backbone of our familia and comunidad. A mujer is much more than a mother, a daughter and a wife. She is strength, she is knowledge, she is change! Join the Chicana/o Latina/o Student Resource Center and our affiliated clubs and organizations as we celebrate all the mujeres revolucionarias who have planted the seeds that we continue to cultivate. “

The Gender & Sexuality Resource Center at CSULA is dedicated to creating safe and respectful learning spaces, catering specifically to the empowerment of Womyn, Men, and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning/Queer (LGBTQ) community. They pride ourselves in challenging societal norms that have been used historically to oppress and marginalize, while raising awareness on contemporary issues we face.

This workshop presents a sacred moment for you to connect with your body and to Coatlicue (our mother earth). The earth gives us life, in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the medicine we take. It is essential when taking from the earth we do it only with respect and always give something back. That could be in the seeds we plant or the water we give to nourish the earth, also creating a relationship with the plants they will soon enough begin to communicate what they need. We come from the earth and keeping a connection is essential in creating a healthy way of living, physically and spiritually.
I will inform you on 3 herbs that can nourish your body. My intention is to inspire the idea of bringing herbs back into our daily routine while taking a moment to connect with our bodies using herbal medicine as our ancestors did. These 3 herbs focus on our center energy as womyn and we will take this moment to share our stories in a safe & sacred space. We will discuss any concerns or ask any questions we might have regarding our wombs along with other healing exercises. I hope with sharing my knowledge you will then feel empowered and create a better relationship with yourself and the earth.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS RIDE IS FOR WOMYN, WOMYN IDENTIFIED, QUEER, TWO-SPIRITED, TRANS, GENDER NON CONFORMING INDIVIDUALS!!!!!
