About Dixie Pauline, RH-AHG.
Dixie Pauline is a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild. She brings over a decade worth of healing experience as a clinical herbalist, an intuitive, herbal first aid trainer, event medic, caregiver, and community organizer. Her healing work is rooted in a deep commitment and passion for radiant health and in sharing the miraculous healing power of plant medicines with others. Her plant medicine practice is informed by her professional experience and her own healing journey.
Dixie is dedicated to exploring the use of plant medicines for healing from individual and collective trauma stemming from oppression. Her background and experience in grassroots, community-led organizing is what inspires her work that connects healing and transformation with organizing for justice and collective liberation.
Trained as a Wilderness First Responder and Emergency Medical Technician, Dixie Pauline has coordinated numerous herbal first aid and wellness spaces at gatherings, campaigns and frontline actions. Dixie is also a volunteer with MASHH (Medicine For All Seeking Health and Healing), a collective who provides herbal education, first aid and wellness clinics at large outdoor gatherings, resistance campaigns, and disaster zones in the Pacific West Coast.
Dixie has maintained a steady clinical herbal practice in Lisjan/Ohlone Territory, known as the San Francisco Bay Area, since 2008. As a settler living on and benefiting from stolen Indigenous Territories, (Dixie is of German, Irish, Scottish and Eastern European descent) she encourages settlers to learn more about what our presence here means and to reciprocate this in a meaningful way on the terms of Indigenous Peoples. Here are a couple ways to do that: Living on Ohlone Land, Reciprocity, and the Shuumi Land Tax, and Ask First! Guide for Indigenous Engagement.
