Updated 2nd edition (2016).

This “freedom session” is a smaller version of the Herbal Freedom School webpage which is part of queerherbalism.blogspot.com. It is a compilation of links, books, and articles about herbalism and other holistic healing modalities that complement it or intersect with it. It is an attempt to make herbal and holistic knowledge more accessible (again).

The Herbal Freedom page and zines are not meant to be exhaustive or definitive. They are a few steps on the revolutionary journey. There's a lot out there. *Please verify by cross-referencing with other sources and remember there is no one way to come at this healing work and for this reason there's a lot of seemingly contradictory information. Hopefully this will be a catalyst for folks to begin/continue on their path and even collaborate with others within the movement.

This is the biggest, most thorough, labour intensive zine of all time! Thank you Toi for your hard work at putting this beauty together and for sharing it with the world at such a modest cost. I can't wait to dig in and learn more. Sending plant love right back atcha!

I'm only 30 pages in so far and I'm astounded by the amount of information included here. Toi's writing is beautiful, personal and easy to read and understand. The articles I've gotten through so far are all wonderful. I'm excited to keep slowly working through this wonderful resource.
