    Doctor Dan's Herbal Hour Podcast is back after a splendid holiday break to bring you the natural health insights that you love! Isabella Rain is an amazing visionary artist, her work reminiscent of the mystical tradition that creators like Alex Grey belong to. In this episode, we discuss Art as Therapy, the symbolism of artwork, the mystery of creativity and share our open minded views on current sociopolitical events.
    This week I am doing something different for the fans of the podcast: The video version is amazing to watch as we discover the symbolism behind Isabella's Paintings, so you can see her mystical art for yourself. I highly recommend watching at least the first half of the video as much of what we speak on is in direct relation to her showcased artwork!

    Here is the VIDEO LINK for Episode #72: https://youtu.be/xJuxmzyW5Bc
    I met Isabella at a Crafters Market where I was selling my organic herbal extracts, and was blown away by the quality and depth of her artwork. In the beginning of this video we go through some of our favorite paintings of hers, and discuss the process that goes into creating this beautiful artwork.

    Become a Wise Rebel, Spiritual Warrior & Heal Your Community with Conscious Rapper & Mystic Neo Vecci (Quincy Davis)

    Become a Wise Rebel, Spiritual Warrior & Heal Your Community with Conscious Rapper & Mystic Neo Vecci (Quincy Davis)

    Hands down one of my favorite discussions on the Herbal Hour Podcast with one of Portland's great conscious musician/rapper, and mystical man of ritual - Neo Vecci, known by his earthly name Quincy Davis.
    In this episode Neo Vecci talks about how you can become a wise rebel, and gives us a look inside the lyricism of his new album Rebel Wise.
    We talk martial arts inspirations, how to open your mind in the times of confusion we live in, and dissect a single from his new album line by line for its meaning. Be sure to watch the video version of this podcast as we play an epic music video for one of my favorite songs on the album...
     
    WATCH VIDEO PODCAST HERE: https://youtu.be/u8lqn1FZLJ4
     
    I have to say, Rebel Wise is a true work of art - it manages to transmit a healing message, and a sense of ritual into lyrics that not only make you bob your head, but open your mind. Quincy is a fellow martial artist at my gym here in Portland (Mata Leao) and we have exchanged much wisdom and even some hands in our sparring sessions...
     
    We talk about how music can be a medium for transformative healing, the tradition that Quincy has learned much from, and how to keep your mind open in times where it is hard to separate truth from fiction. Music is one of humanity's most ancient healing therapies, this week we explore that realm through conscious lyricism and open conversation about our spiritual paths.

A wealth of knowledge

I love listening to this podcast. Every single one is another great viewpoint that has opened my eyes to many different facets in healing, mindfulness and holistic health.

Donnypheonix ,

Great that a podcast like this has been created!

Great conversations on topics in herbalism, holistic health and natural living! Not too much like a lecture, and yet not too casual. A good and pleasant way to gain some knowledge about interesting topics in alternative health!

Krissck ,

Not so pleased

As a mental health therapist, I’m finding some of this information to be somewhat counterproductive to wellness. To be fair, I’ve only listened to one episode, with Laura Gouge, and was not impressed with the guest.
We have a tendency to subtly and not so subtly shame people who struggle emotionally and many mental health practitioners do not really understand the humans mind, let alone one that has been traumatized. Gouge seems to be one of these practitioners.
I will definitely listen to more episodes though as it appears the person who moderates carried the episode and seemed well versed in mental wellness.
