becoming-Botanicals explores humankind’s complex role in natural, cultural, geo-political and socio-economic ecologies by providing a prismatic and multifaceted perspective on the uses of plant botanicals. The New Orleans branch facilitated by Meryl Murman focuses on embodied research practices that deepen understanding of nonhuman life, and garner an eco-centric and empathetic perspective crucial to living sustainably in a shifting climate. Meryl will be hosting a somatic becoming-Botanicals retreat Oct 19-21st in rural Mississippi.
