Free Empowered Women’s Health workshop March 20

March 15, 2010

Empowered Women’s Health
Sat. March 20 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The Bloom Collective
1134 Wealthy SE

Celebrate Spring Equinox in solidarity with sisters! The Bloom Collective hosts a free workshop, Empowered Women’s Health, Sat. March 20, starting at 10 a.m. at 1134 Wealthy SE. The workshop will share information on alternative practices and philosophies around the issues of women’s healthcare as well as provide a safe space for women to share health wisdom with each other.

Such wisdom was the basis for good health in times past, before healthcare became a commodity on the stock market and a product on the pharmacy shelf. The workshop is intentionally free because access to health information, or healthcare for that matter, should not be based on one’s ability to pay.

Sessions include:

  • Simple Herbal Remedies for Mothers and Others, a presentation by Chrysta Coronado, local herbalist and women’s health advocate.
  • DIY facial and body care recipe exchange.
  • De-sanitizing Our Menstrual Health with Rachael Hamilton, a presentation/discussion which will include a DIY pad making activity.
  • Women & AIDS: Alive and Well in Kent County, Kelly Knudtson, CleanWorks.
  • Expressive Language and Self-esteem with Dance, Painting
    and Writing
    , a participatory session with Zulema Moret, director of Latin American Studies, GVSU.

We’ll have coffee and muffins in the morning and a potluck lunch—please bring a dish to pass. The Bloom Collective will provide vegan dishes. We do have seating available but if you have your own comfortable folding chair, bring it along.
