Herbs As Medicine: The Story of Osain

Tuesday, August 30, 2022

Mixed media artist, designer, and illustrator Nedra Williams will engage us in exploring intersections between the arts, herbs, and the Orisha, the deities of the Yoruba people and the Afro-Indigenous Ifa tradition. Together we will learn the ancient story of Osain, and learn how herbs become medicine. Participants will be led through a journey of storytelling, song and art-based healing activities.

This is the first event of the Return of the Matriarchs: Healing Water Series, organized by the Berkeley Food Institute and Berkeley Student Farms. Located at the Fannie Lou Hamer Black Resource Center (Hearst Field Annex D3)

Space is limited, so please RSVP early.
