People have different relations to their cycle and moon, this knowledge share is intended to provide options and ideas to navigate and use the menstrual cycle as a tool for self-knowledge y otras brujerias. This knowledge share is on (re)learning about the menstrual cycle, moon blood, products to catch and absorb blood. We will also be looking at ways to incorporate food, massage and herbs to better support the cycle. Come prepared for some medicine making, you will be taking home nourishing herb blends. People of all genders welcome.

She has facilitated knowledge shares and learned from several abuelitas, tias, plants, communities, lands and institutions in different regions of Abya Yala. La Loba Loca is invested in disseminating information with the hope that self-knowledge and (re)cognition of traditional knowledge will create a future where we can depend on ourselves and communities. La Loba Loca’s core philosophy is based on (re)claiming and (re)membering Abuelita Knowledge and learning how to use our roots as a tool for liberation and transformation.
