RSVP required. Space is limited.
Please join us for an introduction to native healing plants with Dr. Jim Adams.
Jim will teach us about the basics of working with native medicinal plants, especially the six
herbs most used in Chumash healing. He will share techniques for experiencing nature,
including honoring and meditative ways of deepening perceptions. He will guide our journey
with song and story. It will be an afternoon of wonder.
Jim Adams is an associate professor of pharmacology at the USC School of Pharmacology.
He worked for many years with Cecilia Garcia, a renowned Chumash healer. They co-authored
“Healing with Medicinal Plants of the West”. Since Cecelia’s passing, Jim has redoubled his
efforts to bring information and understanding about the uses of California native plants, and
their importance in Chumash and other indigenous cultures.
Please email January Nordman to RSVP.
