Avi-Rose (they / them) is a jewish and queer community-based clinician, educator, medicine maker & researcher, and project coordinator. 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 movements in the world to cultivating practices of justice, awareness, and joy!
The seeds of respect for learning about & from plant allies were first planted here at Third Root back in 2009: Countless seasons, teachers, classroom & land-based lessons later, Avi-Rose has woven a vitalist herbal approach with yoga, food-based healing, meditation, and an anti-oppression framework to support individual & collective healing. Above all, they value co-creating accessible & generative space to support others in accessing their own insights & relationships to their bodies, the earth, and what is possible.
