    The Wisdom With Wyse Women (S2)

    The Wisdom With Wyse Women (S2)

    In this very short bonus podcast I have created a montage of some of my Wyse Women guests from Series 2 sharing their favourite quotes and words of wisdom.

    Featuring (in order) Sally Kempton, Jojo Mehta, Nikki Slade, Deva Premal, Emma Farrell, Pam Montgomery and Carol Guyett, this is a powerful collection of inspiring thoughts to uplift you.

    Listen over and over, try and connect to the feeling as you hear the words and even play this podcast on repeat as you fall asleep at night … the more we fill our conscious minds with the emotions we desire the more they will show up in our lives.

    The Awakening with Marcela Lobos

    The Awakening with Marcela Lobos

    Marcela Lobos was born and raised within dysfunctional family dynamics in Chile, while the country was under military dictatorship. As a result her childhood was emotionally and spiritually unstable with the threat of war and conflict never too far away. Despite trying to outwit and outrun her early programming, it did eventually catch up with her.

    In this Wyse Women podcast Marcela shares her significant story of awakening and talks about how her soul had the courage to break through the constraints of the society that raised her. She also talks about the shamanic maps (The Medicine Wheel and the Hero’s Journey) that she found along the way and offers profound insights to other women who are starting to answer their call from spirit too.

    In our conversation Marcela also pays a heartfelt tribute to her husband Dr. Alberto Villoldo, the Founder of The Four Winds Society and The Munay Ki Rites, who helped to guide her out of the darkness and into the light.

    The Beauty Way with Carole Guyett

    Carole Guyett is a medical herbalist and medicine woman who blends her knowledge of the Celtic tradition with the teachings of ***The Beauty Way.

    From her healing centre in Ireland Carole is dedicated to bringing the gifts of the plant world to others, and in recent years she has been doing this while her husband has been and is still being treated for cancer.

    In this podcast Carole talks about the wisdom she has found in her husbands illness, we also discuss her plant spirit healing work and her dedication to The Beauty Way.

    The Love Of The Elders with Pam Montgomery

    The Love Of The Elders with Pam Montgomery

    In many spiritual traditions an elder is someone who is valued for their wisdom and holds a position of responsibility and authority within their group or tribe. Elders are crucial for helping humanity evolve wisely, however a lot of people believe there are very few of these humans left on the planet right now.

    My Wyse Women guest this month is Herbalist and Plant Spirit Healer Pam Montgomery. Pam’s Grandmother was a wise elder who taught Pam sacred truths about nature that she has now dedicated her life to.

    In this podcast Pam talks about her Grandmother and her gradual transition to spirit and she also shares powerful wisdom about how we can all connect to elder wisdom … even if the wise elders in our own tribes never existed or have long since passed.

    The Consciousness of Plants with Emma Farrell

    The Consciousness of Plants with Emma Farrell

    Are you, perhaps more than ever, longing to live in a deeper harmony with nature? Maybe the near-certain collapse of our economic system that we are all witnessing at the moment is prompting you to focus on connecting with the security and safety of our ecosystem like never before? After all Mother Nature’s reality based bounty existed long before the fiction of stocks, shares and other man-made financial constructs. The Great Mother will almost certainly exist long after as well.

    In this podcast I speak to Emma Farrell, a certified plant spirit healer. Emma’s spiritual quest has taken her all over the world, to study in the Himalayas with master energy healers, to learn in the Ecuadorian Amazon with a shaman elder, and to train in Buddhist meditation at the Dalai Lama’s temple. However her greatest passion today is connecting with great integrity to plant spirit medicine and helping others to discover and explore the power of plants, a gift that was nurtured by a teacher she now treasures (who I also hope to interview on Wyse Women so I won’t share her name just yet.)

    We talk in this episode about what plant consciousness actually is, how you don’t need to go on big ‘trips’ with hallucinogenic plants to answer life’s big questions and the importance of doing your own inner work alongside any healing modality you invite into your life. We start off though by talking about how Emma’s childhood illnesses of asthma and eczema were the catalysts for her journey within.

    The Goddess Bhuvaneshwari With Sally Kempton

    The Goddess Bhuvaneshwari With Sally Kempton

    Most of us are aware of the practical steps we can take to help navigate what is going on in the world at the moment, but where can we turn for spiritual guidance and support?

    ***Please note that the word spiritual in this context is used to describe someone who looks and inquires within in order to experience universality in all things.

    Well in a recent conversation with the author Sally Kempton ,a former swami (monk) about the coronavirus we discussed the power we all have (men and women) to invoke the full potential of our inner feminine energy by connecting with different facets of different Goddesses. Sally has written a book called ‘Awakening Shakti’ which is all about this subject.

    This part of our conversation was not included in The Wisdom of Coronoavirus podcast released last month which featured Sally (among many others) so I hope you enjoy the unedited version of our chat. In this bonus podcast Sally gives a brief introduction to one goddess in particular who we can unite with at this time.
