Start your day off with an immersive/experiential format in which the audience is encouraged to participate rather than simply spectate. Like workshops they've done in the past, Queer Sol Collective invites the audience into an intimate setting where they will establish a community circle and share a collective experience (through this workshop) that introduces Indigenous methodologies that shift the intrapersonal perspective between self and the land. They will elaborate on this concept by discussing their relational approach to healing and how it creates the symbiotic relationship of healing between the individual and the environment. The plant bundling practice participants will engage in will serve to demonstrate the cyclical nature of healing with plant medicine and will open the portal of discussion that invites participants to share about this experience. Creating an emotional connection with plants and with the natural world as a whole, is the way forward for our movement. Queer Sol Collective believes in working from the ground up, literally. Our movement is designed to ignite the emotional connection between the self and the land, piecing back together the true understanding of what nature is: everything, including us. The workshop will close in the same way we started, in circle, in community, but with a deeper innerstanding of why engaging community on the land is a crucial component for land conservation efforts. This morning session will be held outside on the Convention Center Plaza.
