Adult Programs, inHarlem, Literature & Film Programs

The Studio Museum in Harlem and Sacred Vibes Apothecary invite you to join us for an afternoon of storytelling and medicine-making led by herbalist Karen M. Rose and the Sacred Vibes Apprentices. Organized on the recent publication of Sacred Vibes Cookbook, this workshop will begin with sharing narratives about the plant medicine recipes included in the text. Participants will then be encouraged to share their own recipes, and make medicine using accessible herbs to support their healing practices.

Trained in Eastern and Western Herbal Medicine, Master Herbalist Karen M. Rose created an outlet for her teachings and healing modalities with the opening of Brooklyn-based Sacred Vibes Healing and Sacred Vibes Apothecary in 2002. Her inspiration for this work began as a child in her native home of Guyana, where she was exposed to how African, Caribbean, and Latin American traditions profoundly influenced plant medicine and community healing. The legacy of these lands is the foundation of Karen’s spiritual and healing practice.

This program is accessible by wheelchair and other forms of walking assistance.

Throughout the run of Radical Reading Room at Studio Museum 127, drop by on the first and third Saturdays of each month to contribute your text to the community archive and discuss its personal and collective importance. Centering radical approaches to storytelling, programs in this series may take the form of writing workshops, zine-making workshops, or live oral histories led by members of our creative community.
