    Deep Liberation: Exploring the Wilderness of Our Inner Landscape with Shamanic Teachings with Langston Kahn

    Deep Liberation: Exploring the Wilderness of Our Inner Landscape with Shamanic Teachings with Langston Kahn

    In this episode, we’re speaking with Langston Kahn, a shamanic practitioner and teacher specializing in radical human transformation, ancestral healing and the restoration of an authentic relationship with our emotions. Langston is the author of Deep Liberation: Shamanic Teachings for Reclaiming Wholeness in a Culture of Trauma.
    In this interview Langston shares how he came into his shamanic path and breaks down the concept of “shamanism.” We talk about why rediscovering the body and “the felt sense” is a critical aspect in this process of what Langston calls Deep Liberation. Langston guides us in unlocking the deep mind and exploring the wilderness of our inner landscape, the difference between our ego / analytical mind and deep mind, and how to begin to commune and be present with the various parts of oneself so that we can heal deep wounds. 
    Langston shares the concept of the truth cord, why in shamanism beliefs aren't as important as taking action, and unlocking the power that is held in our triggers. We discuss how to begin to engage with your spirit helpers and guides for deeper support, and the importance of community as it relates to our Deep Liberation.
    Langston also shares his heartfelt prayer for his book and what is currently feeding his wild.

    In this episode, we are talking about stone medicine with Sarah Thomas, BS, MAc, LAc, an inspired non-binary healer and educator who owns Clarity Acupuncture in southern Appalachia and is the lead instructor and founder of the Upper Clarity School of Stone Medicine. 
    In this fascinating chat, Sarah shares how they came to Stone Medicine and memories of past life connections as a healer working with stones.
    We touch on how stones work at the level of consciousness, immortality, and alchemy - changing our state of consciousness with imbued awakening properties.
    Sarah teaches how to clear and recharge your crystals with the help of Mother Earth, how to select stones for yourself and specific examples and ways of working with stone medicine/crystals (especially for these times) that are supportive for both individuals and collective.
    Find out why Sarah says 2020 was the Obsidian year, the magical properties of silica, quartz and the connection to the Akashic Records. Plus Sarah’s top stone recommendations for supporting low energy, high stress, and realignment of your soul path.
    You’ll hear about Venessa’s gateway stones and love affair with purple crystals, pearl’s power to feed our wild, and so much more!
    If you want to go deeper with stones and their medicine, Sarah has a free gift - you can grab the "3 Stone Medicine Formulas Whose Time Has Come" PDF on the home page of Sarah’s website. Get started with formulas including pearl, charoite, kyanite and more that are pretty juicy and easy to make.

    Wild Remedies: Re-storying Our Nature Connection with Rosalee de la Forêt

    Wild Remedies: Re-storying Our Nature Connection with Rosalee de la Forêt

    In this episode, we’re speaking with Rosalee de la Forêt, author and Registered Herbalist passionate about helping people discover the world of herbalism and natural health. Rosalee is a wonderful storyteller with colorful tales that draw you into the experience. She does this beautifully with her teachings and books, and today we’re going to dive into her latest book co-written with Emily Han, called Wild Remedies: How to Forage Healing Foods and Craft Your Own Herbal Medicine.
    In this interview, you’ll hear about Rosalee’s healing story and plant path - how she overcame a rare diagnosed terminal autoimmune disease within six months of taking herbs and changing her diet - free from her debilitating symptoms. She shares how a chance meeting with Tori Amos and magical synchronicities led Rosalee to write Wild Remedies.
    If humans interact with the wild, is it still wild? This is a question we explore in this interview and why Rosalee’s life’s work is deprogramming the belief that we are disconnected from nature. Rosalee shares her belief on what is wildness and wild land and our role in relationship with the natural world and plants. She offers helpful questions to ask ourselves about how to support the resilience and livelihood of wild places and how to harvest with awareness and know when it is time to NOT forage. 
    Rosalee’s goal is to bring wild remedies into all areas of our lives, and I find her book Wild Remedies to be a lovely experiential exploration that awakens the senses and enlivens the connection to nature within.
    While we didn’t go deep into specific recipes, Rosalee has been so gracious to offer listeners and Patreon supports a special gift! Click the link below to access a free herbal jumpstart course and access her Sweet Celebrations ebook full of delicious herbal recipes.

    FEBRUARY :: Akashic Soul Nourishment :: The Medicine of Bewilderment

    FEBRUARY :: Akashic Soul Nourishment :: The Medicine of Bewilderment

    This episode is an Akashic Soul Nourishment reading for February, an intuitively channeled message from the Akashic Records for the month. This reading takes us on a bumpy ride, asking us to shed the filters from our lenses and see with our own eyes as we receive the medicine of bewilderment. 
    We are invited to trust the process, stay present for the unfolding of our emotions and open for grace and the notes of higher consciousness to chime into our experience. 
    As the wheel of life and fate continues to turn, the hiccups on the road to change provide opportunity for review, reassessment, and realignment. This invitation also comes at us during a Mercury Retrograde phase - the perfect energy for reconnaissance and recalibration. While we are reminded of common trappings of moral illusions, habitual patterns of thought and hungry ghosts, the message is clear: keep it simple, tend to your basic needs, tune into your body and stay quiet enough to hear your future calling.
    Stay to the end for our collective tarot card reading, the Magician reversed and Five of Pentacles for deeper insight and integration of lessons received.
    Doors are open for Venessa’s 90 Day Akashic Transformational Mentorship for Healers and Helpers - if you are called to learn more and incorporate the Akashic Records and intuitive guidance into your healing path, I invite you to apply. Very limited spots available, and the deadline for all applications is February 16th. See below for more info.
