Trans*Wellness: Herbal Allies for Transgender/ NB/ Genderqueer bodies, on and off hormones
In this class we will discuss how healthy we can be in our bodies as we claim the genders that make us feel whole. This class is for folks hoping to find healing and support in their transitions. No matter where you are in your life transition, this class will give you valuable information for staying healthy and held in your chosen gender, both physically and emotionally. Herbs are great allies for transitioning, whether on hormones or not. Practitioners who work with transgendered and genderqueer/non-conforming folks are welcome to attend, and trans identified voices will be honored and prioritized.
About the teacher:
Kara Sigler has taught and worked as a clinical herbalist in the Bay Area since 2006. Kara's class TransNatural first originated because they saw a need for resources and education within their queer/ non-binary/ trans community on herbal support for surgery, and complimentary support of and alternatives to hormones. Kara first taught Herbal Support for Surgery at the Philadelphia trans health conference in 2008 and TransNatural with Dori Midnight the following year in San Francisco. Kara uses They and She pronouns and identifies as a genderqueer/ white/ femme herbalist. They are currently in a Masters program to become a Nurse Practitioner with the goal of offering integrative medicine to their queer and trans community.
