A time came when a great plague swept across the land, casting a pall over the lives of women, men, seekers and otherlings. Even those who did not catch the virus, suffered more because of reduced access to the medical establishment, and called out for alternative care. While no plant could by itself banish the disease, it was known that a cadre of beloved herbs could help manage the painful symptoms, and it was root, leaf and flower that would provide helpful treatment for the people’s normal myriad ailments and wounds. It was Plant Healers who rose to the challenge, self empowered and self assigned practitioners hailing from suburban neighborhoods, the urban depths and remote countrysides.

Greatly they missed safe opportunities to gather in large groups, and greatly they proved excited to have the opportunity to meet and interact virtually instead, to take classes providing the essential knowledge and skills for their tending of their selves, families, clans and communities – a Confluence of good intentions and good medicine, practica and mythos – energizing and actualizing the good work.

Coming together is in the very name of this oddkin event, a confluence of folk herbalists and clinicians, nature lovers and society changers, home health providers and wisdom keepers. Just because we will be online this one year, doesn’t mean we can’t join together for virtual parties each night, connecting with old friends and making new alliances, sharing laughs and stories. Kiva is determined to figure out how to include a shared music list, and to make direct live interaction possible.

After a long day and evening of classes, demonstrations and sessions, you will want to put on your festival clothes, sign in to the Confluence Virtual Parties, and pop the top on you favorite mead or mocktail!

Bottoms up!
