Rebel Herbal Symposium

A Radical Herbalist Gathering

Herbal & Entheogenic Plant Medicine Symposium

Learn from your fellow herbalists, natural health practitioners & facilitators, gardeners, environmentalists, and vegetalis thinkers. For the people who work with, live with, commune with, and stand up for the forest and its plant & fungi dwellers.

For nature nerds to deepen their relation.

The intention behind this event is a gathering for plant lovers to learn from plant lovers. We explore how we can deepen our practice in whichever avenue we are working with plants, discussing ways to both preserve the gems of traditional folk lore being omitted from national curriculum & dogmatic education, as well as integrating innovation & scientific grounding. We aim to empower therapists & plant enthusiasts to push their thinking forward into new terrain by having the necessary conversations of our time. We bring up the shadow of our practices to explore the edges, and also focus on regenerative culture & our paths forward.

Our first event took place in Uki, Northern NSW in the Spring of 2019. For all who attended, it was a incredible weekend. Rebel Herbal 2.0 is returning and updates will be made once we are ready through the mailing list & website.

Rebel Herbal is an intimate gathering, with very limited tickets available. You do not need to be working in the field of plant medicine to attend, but a base line of herbal appreciation is encouraged.
