This fall I wrote a new zine all about poop! All of my zines are free to read and download under the educational resource page.
Some herbalists read tongues, pulses, faces, ears, etc. I like to engage in these diagnostic techniques also, but, in my opinion, one of the loudest messages from the body comes out of the butt: our poop! And the good news is that learning to listen to poop is not a specialized skill, rather it is accessible to all of us every time we move our bowels. This zine is meant to help us connect more with this part of our daily life and acknowledge the profound messages about our physical and mental well-being. My hope with “Good Shit” was to lay it out simply and with humor.
In the midst of writing “Good Shit”, I visited my family in the midwest, and I kept noticing how all of our conversations constantly return to jokes about farting and pooping; things that come out of the butt. I realized that even though I no longer live by family, they still must have a strong influence on my life! Thus, I dedicate this zine to them 🙂
