Karen Rose is trained in Eastern and Western herbal medicine and is personally dedicated to empowering individuals to make informed decisions regarding their health and lives. For her public talk and in-depth workshop series at the New Museum, she will draw from over fifteen years of experience as a community, clinical, and formulary master herbalist, bringing a particular focus to how women may live inspired lives using the energies of plants. Rose created Sacred Vibes Healing and the Sacred Vibes Apothecary in 2002, a Brooklyn-based herbal apothecary.
