Herbal medicine can be used to treat the parts of our bodies that are impacted by post-traumatic stress and trauma, caused by depression, poverty, displacement, experiences of violence, pain, and injury. The nervous system is most affected by trauma and therefore needs to be connected to emotional and physical healing. Learn how to identify and transform the triggers that trauma has created in your everyday life through the use of herbal medicine.

The founder and owner of Sacred Vibes Healing and the Sacred Vibes Apothecary in Brooklyn, 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 series of workshops at the New Museum, Rose will draw from over fifteen years of experience as a community, clinical, and formulary master herbalist, and will focus on how women may live inspired lives using the energies of plants.

This workshop is offered in conjunction with “Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room.” All care sessions will be open to the public free of charge and will take place on the Fifth Floor. Unless otherwise noted, participants must sign up in the New Museum Lobby half an hour before each session to attend. Space is limited, and admission is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
