Ozark Traditional Healing with Brandon Weston
March 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join Brandon Weston of Mountain Man Traditional Healing for a discussion of traditional plant-based and magic-based folk healing methods in the Ozarks. We will be looking at source material provided by folklorists like Mary Parler, Vance Randolph, Otto Ernest Rayburn, etc. and from living healers and folk doctors. With plant-based healing we will look at traditional herbalism, herbal remedies/preparations, and the materia medica of the Ozark people. In the magic-based healing section we will look at practices that do not involve the direct use of medicinal plants and minerals. Examples of these traditions include: verbal charms, prayers, ritual, as well as the repurposing of certain household items for healing.
We'll be meeting in the Fellowship Hall of Trinity United Methodist Church across Garland from Tri Cycle Farms.
