Shtetl Skills: Spring Cleansing with Kelly McCarthy

As we approach passover in the dawn of a new spring, we’re called to cleanse our homes of stray, lingering crumbs, both literal and energetic. In this workshop, we’ll talk about folk medicine practices using herbs to cleanse our homes and our energetic bodies. We’ll talk about ways to ritually clean your house, which herbs have long histories of use for clearing energetic space, and ways we can employ them to make more space for our full lives. From local medicinal plants we’ll make a cleansing hydrosol room spray. This workshop will encourage participants to look into their own ancestral ritual traditions and will not be engaging in cultural appropriation.

Kelly McCarthy is a clinical herbalist and educator who brings years of training and a deep love for accessible medicine to her work. She runs her own business, Attic Apothecary, based in West Philly.
