In the spirit of enlivening our resilience with the tried and true skills of our herbal heritage, Rachel Budde, founder of Fat and the Moon, is offering a series of hour long webinars on the basics of herbal medicine. She will be focusing on plants near and dear, from the back yard or spice drawer, as well as ancient teachings of powerful mythic sisters. 

Join us for the second webinar in the series:


Friday, May 22nd, 11am PST




Webinar 2 : Goddesses Got Us

Through the metaphoric framework of the mythic sisters, Panacea, Hygeia, Aceos, Aglaia and Iaso, Rachel will discuss immune health with herbal medicine.

In these times, we can learn a lot from these sisters about Health: the new Wellness. 

Hygiea reminds us that our health is in our hands...when we wash them. Sanitation is sanity. With the inspiration of Hygeia, we will discuss essential oils for cleansing.

Aceso reminds us that healing is a dynamic process that needs to be honored. This might mean we need to change the course of our lives for a bit to turn inward and be attentive to the needs of our bodies (and the needs of other bodies). By way of Aceso, we will discuss medicinal mushrooms.

Iaso reminds us about Time, that recuperation slows things down. Time for recuperation is a sacred Time of re-building, a time to reassess what works for our good, and what doesn’t. By the powers of Iaso, we will discuss nervines for rest and relaxation.

Panacea is the remedy, which takes many forms. She reminds us that the medicine and the wound (or dis-ease) are interconnected. Remedies arise as dis-ease arises. It’s time to dig into the intuitive/herbal skills of our ancient grannies, they flow in our blood. Panacea will guide my hand as I point to herbs that bolster the immune system.

And last but definitely not least is Aglaia, who reminds us that staying connected to adornment, beauty, and splendor contributes greatly to our Health. Without relishing these gifts, we lose contact with one of the most healing substances on the planet: Joy. We will bask in the glow of Aglaia as we talk plants for pleasure.

These goddesses got-us. They empower us with practical tools. Let us bestow offerings upon them in the form of taking care of ourselves and each other.
