20 Dec Bethany
Bethany (they/them) is a teacher and student of place based skills. As a young person running from the various institutions they found themselves in, one of the best places they found to hide was in “wild spaces”. In these so called “wild” areas they found a sense of family with the the Non-human world around them, here is where they felt held and safe. Bethany believes strongly in the healing power of reconnecting and rebuilding relationship to our more-than-human relatives. They have found on their own path that working with their hands, in relationship with elements of nature brings some of the deepest healing. As a survivor of Trauma they feel called to continue learning about healing trauma, and sharing their journey with others. Following the whispers of their Ancestors from Mexico they found Curanderismo and have been a student for three years now. After only completing half a year of JR high as a teenager – Bethany has recently been working on finishing their GED, feeling strongly called to environmental and social justice
Bethany will be sharing Broom Making and Sweeping as Medicine.
