Healing Ways is a program designed to build connections to community and culture to improve spiritual health and wellbeing. Led by our Certified Medical Herbalist, Sage LaPena (Nomtipom Wintu), Healing Ways involves patients and their families in the healing process and recognizes our unique relationship to the community and our environment. This includes offering traditional medicine in a clinical setting as part of your overall care plan. In addition, community activities are offered, including Herbalism Classes, Urban Plant Walks, Community Meals, Elder- Youth Workshops, and other forms of community collaboration that reflect the mission of the Healing Ways program.
◆◆ Herbalism Workshops teach participants how to identify, harvest, and use plants as natural healing remedies.
◆◆ Urban Plant Walks will help participants learn about local medicinal plants that grow throughout Sacramento.
