    009 | Life Gazing, Earth Being: On Mindfulness & Embodiment - with travelling storyteller Zoe Eccles

    009 | Life Gazing, Earth Being: On Mindfulness & Embodiment - with travelling storyteller Zoe Eccles

    There are many perspectives and pathways to awakening, knowledge and success, and sometimes it's hard to know which way to go. Some traditions ask us to focus on transcendence, meditate in stillness, exhale anger and inhale love. Others ask us to go down and in, to find an opening through our embodied deepening and to alchemize our darker emotions.

    In today's episode, Zoe Eccles and I talk about bridging the masculine and feminine pathways to awakening, science and mysticism, intellectual and embodied knowledge. Zoe is a storyteller, historian and photographer. She is engaged in a lifelong journey, both through the physical world, which she travels, living for parts of the year on the road, and through the world of thought.

    Her current projects cover a vast area, as she aims to bridge various disciplines and fields: the scientific, the historic and the spiritual; the literary and the photographic; to find a larger story that will spark a change in society.

    **Please note that the Patreon bonus has changed since I recorded the intro. Zoe is now granting our patrons (at the $5/month rosebud level and up) FREE access to her online mindfulness course BE, which is usually priced at $110. It is a beautiful four-part course filled with information, poems, journal prompts, audio meditations and videos.**

    WHAT WE COVER:
    - how Zoe's blogs and businesses "life gazing" and "earth being" were created
    - returning to true presence in the day and age of social media: living first, storytelling second
    - the various pathways of awakening: how the "upward" path of ascension and transcendence needs to be balanced by the "down and inward" return to the earth and embodiment
    - facing our humanity: balancing our inner angel and our animal instincts
    - the reconciliation of masculine science and feminine mystery and embodied gnosis
    - finding the beauty in difference and dualism as the foundation of our existence
    - the big bang, nothingness and the fertile womb
    - today's medicine song: >> Molten Starry Skies by The Feelings Parade from their album "Live on Scott's Birthday" (featured with the artist's permission)
    - Zoe's creation process and how she manages to travel the world without much money
    - Zoe's online offering "Portals": our ancestral heritage through the wheel of the year
    - real talk: personal doubts and hopes around creating content in an oversaturated online world

    RESOURCES MENTIONED
    - Zoe's YouTube videos on [how to talk with trees ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9hHHK3fytw)and [how to see fairies ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlv2J32hMX8)

    007 | Hearing the Whispers: Plant Spirit Healing & Communication ~ with Lillian Edwards

    007 | Hearing the Whispers: Plant Spirit Healing & Communication ~ with Lillian Edwards

    One of my purposes in life is to be a bridge for plant and human consciousness. And today I got to have a conversation with a sweet sister on the same mission!

    Lillian is a plant spirit healer and visual artist, bridging the worlds of human consciousness and the ever-accessible, loving and wise, presence of Nature’s intelligence. Her healing business, Earth Prayer, was birthed from a deep desire to give voice to the Plants, weave Their prayers into writing and art, share flower essences, and serve her local community with plant spirit healing.

    We hope that this episode will spark your interest in developing personal relationships with these highly evolved sentient botanical beings!

    WHAT WE COVER:
    - Lillian's plant path: from ecological restoration, to farming, to herbalism and finally plant spirit healing
    - the subtle but profound impact of flower essences, and how they helped Lillian on her journey
    - plants as our ancestors and why every single one is a teacher
    - today's medicine song: >> Whispers by Ayla Nereo from the album The Code of the Flowers (featured with the artist's permission)
    - what is plant spirit healing?
    - the difference between louder master plant teachers (such as Ayahuasca) and the quieter, more common plants (here's a secret: all of them are entheogenic, and here for the evolution of our consciousness)
    - what are plant initiations or plant diets?
    - a message from the spirit of Queen of the Night (selenicereus grandiflorus)

    006 | The Medicine of Connection ~ with Mushrooms and Dolly Sorenson

    006 | The Medicine of Connection ~ with Mushrooms and Dolly Sorenson

    "The Earth has a cure for forgetting. And the Earth has a cure for connection. And that is mushrooms."

    In today's episode, Dolly Sorenson and I explore the vast healing potential of adaptogenic and psychedelic mushrooms and the teachings of the mycelium. This show is for everyone who is interested in building a new world of connection to Earth and to each other.

    Dolly has experienced the quantum leaps of transformational healing, having her life change over night
    by syncing up with her most authentic self, merging with the mycelium of the planet. She now teaches about mushrooms and makes her own wildcrafted medicine, including an amanita muscaria essence. She will be giving away a bottle of this essence on our **Patreon**(https://www.patreon.com/floweringsherose)! (giveaway ends October 21st)


    WHAT WE COVER:

    - how Dolly's life transformed into a waking dream after going through the mushroom portal
    - how flower essences helped Dolly uncover who she was
    - how the mushroom entered Dolly's dreams and led her to her soul mate
    - the mushroom as a gatekeeper leading the way
    - _today's medicine song_: >> Rêve by Justine Quetzal, an unfinished song from her second album in the making. _Many thanks for this special preview!_
    - Dolly's story of initiation and how she was lead to making her first mushroom essence
    - the teachings of the mycelium
    - the medicine of recycling, resurrection and integration of shadow for more authentic being
    - adaptogenic mushrooms and how they allow our body to be its own healer
    - the power of psychedelic mushrooms to heal our imaginations, shift our consciousness and widen our reality
    - the mushroom's role in building a new world, leading the way to more sisterhood, village life and connection
    - how to start building a relationship with mushrooms (with or without ingesting them)

    Today's _plant spirit transmission_ tells the story of a personal journey of mine with magic mushrooms.
    It can be found on our Patreon, along with some bonus audio content, where Dolly talks more about the research around mushrooms and how science & spirit are merging in that field.

    004 | Anchoring our Divine Calling to Create Heaven on Earth - with Mother Mary, Angelica and Anna Matuschka

    Today, on Mary Assumption, I'm releasing a special episode featuring the full story of how I was called to the plants by Mother Mary. It's all about the mythical unfolding of my path towards my calling.

    May this story bring you reassurance that we are all guided along the way and that our calling cannot be missed. Our path, as painful as it may be at times, is the one we're on right now, and the beauty comes when you begin to see the meaning and the threads connecting it all.

    - the meaning of my given name, Anna Matuschka, and why I chose to use it for this episode
    - how I was introduced to Mother Mary and Anna, grandmother of Jesus, as my guides
    - Mary Assumption and the celebration of flowers and the bounty of life
    - my pilgrimages to Maria Kirchental, a pink church in Austria devoted to Mother Mary
    - how Mother Mary encouraged me to pursue my interest in plants
    - bringing reverence back to motherhood, and the sacred back to the mater-ial realms (mater = mother in Latin)
    - Angelica, mother and queen of the plant spirit realm
    - being initiated by plants to carry their essence and become the medicine
    - _today's plant spirit transmission_: Bridging Heaven and Earth in Service, with Angelica sylvestris
