    Earth Medicine— Trusting What You Can't See

    Earth Medicine— Trusting What You Can't See

    In this episode, Erica and Genevieve discuss the practice of what Genevieve calls “being resourced”— trusting that what you need will arrive when you need it. (And how often it feels like it’s at the last minute after and after you’ve been forced to surrender.) They also discuss the importance of where you resource from when you are filling yourself up.

I feel lighter, happier, and more hopeful every time I tune into this podcast. Thank you for your wisdom, humor, and honesty!

Wisdom and Help

Lots of white guilt regurgitation within the episodes of this show. Self aimed anti-white racism. While trying to sound apologetic for things the living never will do because of the lessons learned from the past, the hosts instead do their best to dump white guilt within this current. It’s sad when individuals with a voice aims it into the stream and it’s negatively aimed. Negative for their own ancestors may have had a mere glitch in the history in which they were bad, but before that for hundreds of thousands of years the hosts ancestors would never do as this small glitch did.

Real and Relatable

This podcast offers an alternative lens to healing. Erica and Genevieve have beautiful practices of healing through recognition of what came before you and honoring those truths. Very relatable.
