AFRO INDIGENOUS MEDICINE & WELLNESS
ABOUT SEED OF OSUN
Seed of Osun acts as both a Mobile and Stationary apothecary, invoking traditional medicine of the African Diaspora. We return back to our tribal roots using ancestor reverence and Afro- Native indigenous folk medicine & rootwork as the center of the healing process. We believe that any community-spiritual intervention must contain a healing component that allows the full spectrum of the human condition to be addressed, including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual imbalances that manifest as a result of oppression, colonialism, and generational trauma.
We offer interventions to return back to our indigenous roots, that include a strong element of self-determined agency, as we all have the ability to heal ourselves and each other.
