reading + listening lately

My casablanca lilies have been in bloom at 6&B Garden this week. They are one of the most divine sensory treats I know, and yet, basically impossible to extract fragrance from. Some things can only be enjoyed in the moment. Our limited-edition summer offerings (including new travel-sized minis) fit into this same category - go grab yours before the season is gone!

I'm catching up at the studio after being away for a few days, but I wanted to pop in and share a few things I've appreciated this past week.

L I S T E N I N G :

Jade from 69herbs on the Living in this Queer Body podcast with Asher Pandjiris, who describes their conversation, thus: "Jade and I speak about abelism, transphobia and purity discourses in herbalism, thoughts on unlearning binaries in the wellness world. They speak eloquently about permission to heal, within multiple, subtle and complex modalities (and at your own pace!)." Jade farms just outside of New York City and makes some truly beautiful plant medicine. Go take a peek at their shop, as well.

On repeat in the studio right now: The Source (Remastered) by Ali Farka Touré

The End of Policing by Alex Vitale. The police accountability working group of our local SURJ chapter is reading this together as part of our ongoing political ed series. Highly recommended.

Until next time...
