Today's episode is an excerpt from our spring online Free Herbalism Project hosted on April 8, 2021.
Throughout history people of color have played important roles in the world of healthcare. From the granny midwife, herbalist, abolitionist, from our food for the soul to the medicine women who united communities. Join me in speaking their names to understand their journey and the importance of their contribution to the world of the healing arts.
With a journey that began as a little girl mixing herbs, clays, and muds on her grandparents’ farm, Lucretia VanDyke has been in the herbal industry for over 20 years. A holistic educator, speaker, herbalist, ceremonialist, spiritual light coach, intuitive energetic and reiki practitioner, diviner, storyteller, artist, and world traveler, she has accumulated over 3,000 hours of training. She has studied with indigenous healers and some of the greatest minds of our time. Lucretia has been a holistic esthetician & healing arts practitioner for over a decade focusing on integrating indigenous healing rituals, plant spirit medicine, and meditation into modern-day practice. Lucretia brings her vivacious spirit and message of self-love in her work to inspire others to embrace their unique beauty and purpose. Her work with herbs and sacred practices honors women's wholeness through grief work, sexual trauma, ancestor connection, womb healing, self-empowerment, food alchemy, and holistic skincare. She is currently collecting stories throughout the south while working on expanding her BIPOC community healing arts and herbal education program.
