Root Gathering 2020
In the not so distant past, those who carried ancient knowledge were called root gatherers or root workers. These people not only used roots & plants as medicine, but also connected with our ancestral roots for ancient healing practices and traditions. The "Root Gathering" is a mini-festival that will help to facilitate intimate connections with others who hold ancestral knowledge and wish to share it with the world. During this event we all will co-create an environment where we help spread our passions of ancient traditions with a quality selection of participants. This is a consciously limited event to sustain greater sharing and connection. Limited to 30 tickets sold and not open to the public.
