This zine is a tool for self care. A collection of quotes from revolutionary minds like Mary Oliver, Rebecca Solnit, June Jordan and more anchor the work, which is heavily inspired by radical mental health and western herbalism practices. Both a battlecry and tender embrace, this 29 page zine urges individuals to take up an active concern for their emotional and mental needs + pay close attention to the subtleties of their body.
When we create space to care for, honor and communicate our experiences of mental + emotional health, without judgment or shame, we find great personal + collective power. This work is a jumping off point to begin to learn to tap into this power and create moments of joy + calm for ourselves. To embrace aliveness and resist hateful systems that say we are unworthy. To know healthy boundaries and contemplate our internalized expectations.
