ABOUT SASSAFRAS HEALING ARTS

My name is cheré / rere suzette bergeron. I am a healing arts practitioner located on Occupied Dakhóta Land, otherwise known as Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I create medicine + magic for healing justice + collective liberation.

I am a mystic, care worker, ancestral animism re-memberer + weaver, land-tender, herbalist, registered nurse, astrologer, witch, traiteur, völva, writer, researcher, radical folk/ community historian, + memory keeper. I situate myself as a lifelong student, lover, + researcher of these crafts, practices, traditions, + lineages, which are deeply interconnected. My pronouns are they / them.

I value authenticity, care work, interdependence / sacred reciprocity, non-linear time + healing, solidarity, autonomy, boundaries, + pleasure.

I seek to weave my strand in the web of wyrd as a race traitor in service of dispelling + dismantling myths + structures of white supremacy + capitalism. I believe in the power + magic of care webs, mutual aid, + crip, femme, survivor wisdom. As a crip, femme, survivor myself who lives with complex PTSD + chronic pain, I am particularly interested in the intersections of nervous system co-regulation + healing attachment traumas through building relationships + communities grounded in care + interdependence.
