  • "Medicine” is a song-anthem honoring the traditions of folk medicine; plant-based medicine as a tool for empowerment and healing. It is a call to action to support the voices of the herbalists, healers, and teachers… the roots, plants, trees, and stones… the arts, the spirits, and the wild ones. It is an honoring of all the many ways that we can be well, and the radical and traditional ways in which we can steward health within ourselves.

    This song is a direct tribute to the people around the world who are holding and teaching these ways of herbal plant-based medicine, educating us all to know our gardens, our forests, our plants and our own bodies… to bring wellness back into our own hands and communities. It is not a dismissal of modern medicine, but a gratitude and honoring of its ancestry and foundations within folkloric traditions.

    This release comes on the New Moon after the Fall Equinox. As we are moving into a new season, a new time, and a new chapter, we offer this song as a ritual anthem for this transition and time of great change.

    “Medicine” Lyrics:

    Wise men say that rushing is violence
    and so is your silence
    when its rooted in compliance
    To stand firm in loving defiance,
    make art your alliance
    give voice to the fire

    Move people to the beat of the wind
    Gather yourself and begin
    to dance the song until it ends
    We are winners, champions of the light
    forming in numbers and might
    keep the truth close in sight…

    Chorus:
    Medicine Woman, Medicine Man
    walking with grace, I know your face, and I trust your hands
    Medicine Woman, Medicine Man
    walking with grace, I know your face, and I trust your hands

    Find your teachers in the voice of the forests
    unplug you cant ignore this
    wisdom of the voiceless
    Remedies are bountiful and surround us
    from the garden to the farthest
    prayers made of star dust

    Find your healing in the music that calls you
    the voice that enthralls you
    what do you belong to
    Eyes out theres the setting of the sun
    give thanks to each and everyone
    the lesson is the…

    Medicine Woman, Medicine Man
    walking with grace I know your face, and I trust your hand
    Medicine Woman, Medicine Man
    walking with grace, I know your face, and I trust your hand

    Poem:

    I believe in bending backwards and extending
    in my tracks
    trip back
    until the lesson is in action and
    your yard is feeding
    stop stark the disbelieving
    cause the garden holds the shards
    the medicine is in the seeds when

    We hold tight to our right to protect and
    we know our might is 10-fold in connection
    our elders hold them bright lights
    we protect them
    the medicine is evident
    the wolf, the hawk, the bear clan

    We hold tight to our right to protect and
    we know our might is 10-fold in connection
    our elders hold them bright lights
    we protect them
    the medicine is evident
    the wolf, the hawk, the bear clan…

    Medicine Woman, Medicine Man
    walking with grace, I know your face, and I trust your hands
    Medicine Woman, Medicine Man
    walking with grace, I know your face, and I trust your hands
