Harriet's Apothecary Winter 2016
Harriet’s Apothecary is an intergenerational, healing village led by the brilliance and wisdom of Black Cis Women, Queer and Trans healers, artists, magicians, activists and ancestors. Our village is committed to co-creating accessible, affordable, liberatory, all-body loving, all-gender honoring, community healing spaces that recognize, inspire, and deepen the healing genius of our vessels.
We offer free to sliding-scale, body-affirming, love-drenched potions, prescriptions, and customized services to restore and expand your body’s abilities to heal and to love. We are so grateful you are taking care of yourself in this way and in turn taking care of the communities you are a part of. We hope that every moment you spend with us cultivates and inspires the best in your being and encourages the healing genius of your vessel.
The intention of Harriet’s Apothecary is to continue the rich healing legacy of abolitionist and community nurse and herbalist Harriet Tubman. Like our courageous ancestor, we intend to expand access to health and healing resources that support our people in their healing journeys toward freedom. We also hope to connect individuals and communities to accessible self and community based resources that are rooted in the wisdom of our bodies, our ancestors and our plant families.
Our village is an intentional space for self-identified POC/Indigenous/Mixed-Race Cis Women, Queer and Trans folks and the allies that love them.
We recognize that there are significant individual, collective and generational consequences to living in a world that systematically oppresses people of color. We know that the consistent, widespread direct and indirect exposure to violence, colonization, loss, burn-out, stress, microaggressions, imperialism, dis-ease and traumatic social conditions permeates and impacts our personal and interpersonal physical, emotional and spiritual well-beings. We know that time and time again enduring systemic injustices impacts our relationship to self and community care and our relationship to our movement building work. We want to be a part of shifting this reality in our bodies and our communities. We are enthusiastic about the infinite possibilities we can all create when we engage our individual and collective capacity to heal, to love and to transform.
