This week, I recorded a podcast episode recapping what you may experience in working with the Sacred Datura and what it can catalyze within you. I share personal experiences and stories, and talk about how you can use the elixir for purification and finding light at the end of the tunnel during this collective dark night of the soul.
Eli Buren shares how deepening our relationship with nature helps us appreciate each other more, and why it’s so important to become adept at both yin/yang aspects within ourselves: sharpness & softness, ferocity & vulnerability. He talks about how romantic love relationships naturally invite us into a place of being disturbed, and how turning toward discomfort can amplify intimacy and vitality.
Madeleine Ryan talks about her time as an actor and being diagnosed with autism before moving to the Australian countryside. She is now an author and is working on a screen adaptation of her book. We dive into talking about how creative work being a radical act, and a transformative practice - why moments of discomfort are powerful opportunities for the intuitive, creative process. She talks about the importance of being honest with yourself and breaking the rules.
Dr. Melissa Sell shares how your body’s symptoms tell the story of your inner conflicts. She shares Germanic New Medicine as a system of understanding the vast intelligence of the body, and how biological programs trigger in the body as a response to stress, shock and trauma. She offers a whole new way of understanding our body and encourages us to tap into our inner wisdom to make choices about our health.
