Avi-Rose, MS, E-RYT 200, is a Jewish & Queer community-based educator, researcher, project coordinator, and multi-modal health & well-being clinician. Their roots & realities include a tangle of working class lessons, artistic lineage, inter-generational trauma, white-skin privilege, and immeasurable resilience and laughter. Rising from and growing within these contexts, Avi-Rose dedicates their efforts to cultivating justice & joy in all they do.
The seeds of respect for learning with & from plants were first planted here at Third Root in 2009: Countless seasons, mentors, classroom & earth based lessons later, they have woven a vitalist herbal framework with multiple modalities and an anti-oppression approach in their work of supporting individual & collective healing. As an educator and clinician, they value creating accessible & generative space to both offer knowledge and support others in accessing their own insights & relationships with political analysis, their bodies, and the earth.
