The Canadian Herb Conference 2021
November 4, 2021 @ 12:00 am - November 7, 2021 @ 12:00 am
Hello my fellow herbalists;
Please join me once again November 4-7, 2021 as the Canadian herb community gathers again online.
Last year, our inaugural conference, with your support raised over $20,000 that went directly to our provincial and national herbal associations. We’re incredibly proud of this accomplishment that we achieved together. And we’re ready to do it again this year.
Our committee has been busy lining up over:
- 35+ knowledgeable Herbalism Presenters
- 40+ original workshops
- 6 in-depth panel discussions
Our theme this year is Resilience, Reciprocity, Respect
These are strong words carefully chosen for turbulent times. 2020 was an unprecedented year for all of us, both personally and professionally, and 2021 so far has been no less challenging.
The capacity of herbalists, herb lovers and all that use herbs, and of the herbal community as a whole, to be resilient in these circumstances, and to grow stronger through adversity, has been inspiring to behold.
The role of the herbalist has never been more needed, or more valued, and sales of herbal products keeps rising and rising as people look to plant medicines and herbalists to help them with the long term consequences of this pandemic (not just COVID-19, but also mental health, cancer and other conditions that may have been unattended during lockdowns). Reciprocity and Respect both refer to the practices we need to cultivate of listening and giving in contrast to the historic default actions of telling and taking.
Resilience: The capacity to stand strong in the storm. A tree is resilient that can bend and sway with the wind but not loosen its roots. It can withstand the vicissitudes of time, of pest and predator, and can renew itself after damage.
Reciprocity: The practice of giving, receiving and giving back. To practice reciprocity means to join into the circle dance of community and cooperation and of compassion for other. It is the embodiment of the adage “love thy neighbour as thyself”.
Respect: The act of acknowledging the value and worth of each person in the circle, of believing in each of their capacity to live to their highest good, and of their right to be heard.
