Transition Berkeley invites you to experience Numen, a fascinating documentary film focusing on the healing power of plants and the natural world. Numen features stunning footage of medicinal plants and thought-provoking interviews with Dr. Tiearona Lowdog, herbalist Rosemary Gladstar, and many others. It calls for a re-awakening of traditional knowledge about plants and their uses. Numen explores ways to heal our relationship with the earth – plant medicine is one way, food is another, lifestyle choices are yet another. It inspires us to deepen our relationship with the natural world and reminds us of the healing made possible by re-embracing our place in the wider web of life.
Our special guest speaker is Victory V. Lee who began her interest in herbal and home remedies at an early age with home training from her Native American and African American grandmothers. She is the founder and president of the Victory Garden Foundation. Victory will lead us in a discussion and action plan session after the film. Meet and greet at 6:30 – bring herb based snacks to share.
This event is cosponsored by Transition Berkeley, Victory Garden Foundation and BFUU’s Social Justice Committee.
