This is an interactive talk exploring the many emotions that arise during the postpartum period. We will explore how grief shows up in the mind, body and spirit, and the transformational wisdom it holds. Grief does not have to be limited to physical death; it can exist alongside joy and is part of a holistic postpartum experience. Roshni will share how grief exploration, ancestral healing rituals and Ayurveda wisdom can create a nurturing experience for postpartum people.

We will collective imagine what weaving this cocoon will be like rooted in Ayurveda wisdom and practice a guided ritual.

She sees the path to being whole as a radical art and political practice.

Her work has spanned from working as birth doula, transplant ICU nurse, home health nurse and to an end of life nurse. Most recently she worked as a Palliative Care Nurse at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland.

Roshni's early childhood was marked by the grief her mother and ancestors experienced by living on the margins based on gender and caste. Similarly in the United States, as a Nurse, Roshni witnessed racialized trauma and its lasting impact on the health and wellness of communities of color. Combining her interest in art, wellness and advocacy she has launched a startup, Cardamom and Kavate to reimagine what it means to embody our freedom and live in our pleasure.
