Moon Phase: Waning Half Moon Sun Phase: before Summer Solstice
Feed Your Soul by: kuwa jasiri
Moment to Pause to ask what your heart wants?
As founding steward I, kuwa jasiri Indomela (the one / ellx), study wild foods, birth work, Seed stewardship, and liberatory medicine to tend my own sexual traumas. As an intersex polyqueer, my superpower is infiltrating privileged spaces, advocating and bringing about equity while marginalized folks rest and play.
Our grassroots initiative nourishes the mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing of genderqueer People Of Heritage (Of Colour) since 2011.
We educate about and facilitate Community Based Reparations where privileged folks return resources (reparations) and make amends for (micro)aggressions to marginalized folks through our organization. We are the bridge because interacting directly with privileged folks can be draining, emotional, triggering and fake causing exulansis based fatigue.
“The approach that Artistic Apothecary takes is creative, innovative, and relies on genuine relationships being formed.” — Ana, Office Volunteer

We ask that you pick a day that holds significance for you and donate this Moonth.
