Batul True Heart will lead a discussion in reclaiming ancestral medicine, Curanderismo and cultural responsibility.

Batul True Heart (they/she) is a queer, two-spirit, indigenous, mestizx (Yaqui/Panamanian/Spanish) Curanderismo practitioner with an emphasis on moving stuck emotional winds or "aires." Batul is also an educator, speaker, and writer on the topics of ancestral reclamation and remembrance, and cultural responsibility. Since 2016, Batul has been lead teacher of The Curanderx’s Toolkit class at Ancestral Apothecary in Ohlone Territory/Oakland, CA. Batul recently completed 3 years of formal clinical herbalism studies and is inspired to combine clinical intakes with traditional healing ways. After growing up disconnected from their ancestral lineages, traditions, and medicines, and finding their way back home through the healing path of their ancestors, Batul's life's work is to usher and support people in general, and indigenous and queer folks in particular, to return to their ancestral roots, remembering who they truly are. For teens and adults.
