The wicked ghosts of white supremacy are alive and well in the nation’s capital. Until the systems built to uphold these hateful tenets are dismantled, beginning in the hearts of every individual, nothing is sacred.

I am sad to announce that Mending Roots’ brick and mortar location has closed its doors. It has been a difficult year for everyone and a time to re-evaluate current attentions and paths forward. I intend to spend the remaining dark half of the year hibernating, evolving and re-seeding ideas to unfurl in the spring. I will continue to refill herbal preparations and Reiki II and III courses will still be available for previous students in the coming year. Thank you to everyone that has supported Mending Roots so far and I look forward to sharing whatever iteration comes next. Stay safe everyone 💚


Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!

I am dedicated to dismantling whiteness and white supremacy in myself and the people and structures around me through both education and action.

I am dedicated to using my privilege and my reach to support People of Color, to uplift Black and Brown voices and to call out and fight against racism and systemic oppression.

This work is life-long and constant. This work looks different for everyone. What does this work look like for you?

I received a really strong reminder today to slow down. I know: the global pandemic should have been enough of a message, but my roles have only shifted and intensified since its onset. I find, like many folx, that after I’ve finished everything that I “have” to do or “need” to do, there’s little to no time left for what I want to do or for the responsibilities that I have chosen to take on to further my education and take on new roles.

I had already decided not to take classes this summer, so I can focus on minimizing and writing curriculum for online courses. Right now, I’m sitting under a tree and trying to remember what it feels like to just sit and connect and breathe. I know: that means put my phone down too. Thanks for listening.

Happy Spring Equinox! It’s hard to believe that spring has arrived while we are collectively confined to winter mode. If you are able to get outside and ground, please do. Alternatively, open a window, connect with your house plants, engage with herbal medicine or meditate on your favorite herbal ally.

Spring is often a time for new beginnings and growth. Is there a creative project or hobby you’ve been meaning to start? Is there something you can bring forth at low or no cost?

In honor of social distancing, reiki and herbal consult appointments are available via phone or skype. I’ll be posting resources in my stories as I become aware of them. Please be well and stay safely connected with folks.

Happy Winter Solstice! ❄️

As we continue through the dark part of the year, time for introspection and self care rises. These are some things I do to support myself this season.

⁃ drink lots of warm tea
⁃ journaling/free-writing
⁃ reading
⁃ napping
⁃ meditation/energy work/divination
⁃ eat predominantly warm/well cooked foods
⁃ body oiling
⁃ say “no” to excess commitments to reduce seasonal overwhelm

What do you do (or not do) to nourish your inner self this season?

Our mission is to provide access to knowledge and resources, which nurture the mind, body, spirit and community. We are a safe space and we believe in universal inclusion for all people and all bodies. We aim to honor and reflect the unique experience of each individual.

Reiki is a form of hands-on energy healing, which promotes health and spiritual/emotional well-being by encouraging the release of negative energy from the body.

We currently offer Reiki I & II classes/attunements. The Reiki I course promotes self-healing between sessions. Reiki I practitioners are also able to facilitate healing for loved ones.
