    Meredith & Ella's Birth Story

    Meredith & Ella's Birth Story

    This week I sat down with dear friend Jane Mayer to share the story of my daughter's birth. She was born March 15, 2022 at our home in Boulder, Colorado. In this story I share about everything from unexpected emotions during pregnancy, what I did to prepare for birth, practices to help baby be in the most optimal position for labor, the story of the birth itself as well as lessons from the first six weeks postpartum.  After spending years preparing for motherhood and holding space for women to heal their womb and their own birth stories it's such an honor to share our birth story with you today.

    Healing the Mother Wound & the Mysteries of Pregnancy & Birth with Gabriella Cerince

    Healing the Mother Wound & the Mysteries of Pregnancy & Birth with Gabriella Cerince

    As I am about to cross the threshold into motherhood, I sat down to speak with mother, ceremonialist, and birthkeeper Gabriella Cerince. (You can also listen to our last episode from 2020 on Ceremony, Seasons, & the Modern Witch right here).
    Gabriella shares her birth story (with her now 6-month old daughter,) and the fine line one walks between fear, trust & intuition in the process, and how she was invited to set boundaries both during and after birth as she stepped into her new role as Mother.
    Gabriella has great reverence for mothers, women and mothers-to-be and is working towards a world where our direct line of connection to our mothers and Earth mother can be healed and tended to. This conversation reminds of connecting to our innate power as women as we walk through potent initiations in a full-spectrum life…
    “Birth works… the more we can get out of the way, the better…” In this episode we discussed:
    Gabriella’s home birth story
    The initiations & mysteries of pregnancy
    What Gabriella is learning through motherhood
    How Birth is an opportunity to heal our lineages and the World
    How Gabriella is navigating her Mother Wound as a new mother

    Wealth Redistribution & Ancestral Repair with Morgan Curtis

    Wealth Redistribution & Ancestral Repair with Morgan Curtis

    After hearing Morgan’s story of choosing to donate and redistribute 100% of her inherited family wealth, I knew I wanted to speak with her. In this conversation we discuss what it’s like to face the shadows of our ancestral lineages, ask deeper questions of what our family’s part was in injustices in our country and how we can use that knowledge to atone and repair.
    Morgan is one of thousands of young people feeling called to redistribute inherited wealth back into the hands of indigenous and black people and organizations across the country… Her story calls us to consider that maybe true happiness is really found when we focus on others’ happiness rather than just our own…
    In this episode we discuss:
    Morgan’s privileged upbringing and calling to activism early in life
    The inner journey navigating shame, guilt, and anger after learning about some of her ancestor’s involvement in slavery, moving indigenous people off their land, and fossil fuel investments - the very=
    The story of how Morgan began redistributing 100% of her inherited wealth and 50% of her earned income
    How to navigate resistance that may come up when redistributing funds
    How to begin the journey of looking into your own ancestral past
    The fears Morgan faced around being public with this work
    What Morgan has learned about true happiness
    A letter to her descendants and vision for a healed world

    Have money to give this season? Here are some of Morgan’s suggestions on where to begin:
    Ekvn Yefolecv an intentional Indigenous ecovillage community returning to their ancestral homelands in what’s known as Alabama, to reclaim and revive language, ecology, cosmology and tradition.
    Canticle Farm an urban farm, educational center, and intentional community, located in East Oakland, CA on Lisjan Ohlone territory. In particular, the Sister Water House of Restorative Justice at Canticle Farm is home to formerly-incarcerated Black elders and movement leaders.
    #Case4Reparations Fund at Liberated Capital is an example of how to cede decision making power by funding the movement for reparations through campaigns and organizations chosen by a group of Black and Indigenous leaders.

    Guided by the call to transmute the legacy of her colonizer and enslaver ancestors, Morgan is dedicated to working with her fellow people with wealth and class privilege towards redistribution, atonement, and repair of ancestral harms. As a facilitator, money coach, organizer and ritualist, she works to catalyze the healing of relationships with self, family, ancestors, community, and the land, enabling the surrender of power and control so that resources can flow towards racial, environmental, and economic justice. She is in the process of redistributing 100% of her inherited wealth and 50% of her income to primarily Black- and Indigenous-led organizing and land projects. Morgan is a resident of Canticle Farm, a multi-racial, inter-faith, cross-class, intergenerational intentional community in Lisjan Ohlone territory (Oakland, CA). She is currently a Masters of Divinity student at Harvard Divinity School, focused on racial justice and healing. You can learn more at her website: morganhcurtis.com.

    Earth Intuition, Self-Compassion & Plant Spirit Healing with Asia Suler

    Earth Intuition, Self-Compassion & Plant Spirit Healing with Asia Suler

    The timing of this conversation couldn’t have been more perfect. After living eight months on the island of Kauai and deepening my connection to the Earth and plant spirit world, I had the opportunity to sit down with writer, teacher, and earth intuitive, Asia Suler. I had just had my first dream of the island after returning to the mainland, where I greeted the ocean and it greeted me back with a big splash on my hand. I could truly feel the sentience of the plants and the land in the dream that I had been in such close relationship with.
    Have you ever experienced anything like this? Feeling the aliveness of everything around you? Communicating with the unseen realms?
    In this episode Asia shares her own journey of communication with the Earth and spirits of the plants. She shares about their message of self-compassion and how they work through us on behalf of our evolvement and healing.
    In this episode we discussed:
    What is earth intuition?
    Asia’s journey of healing chronic pain through the Earth’s wisdom
    Intuitive plant medicine
    Mugwort and Rose medicine
    Finding self-compassion and the true meaning of self-love
    How to navigate being an empath and the world opening back up after shelter-in-place
    Asia’s journey of intuitive entrepreneurship and the permission she gave herself in her writing that changed everything & opened her to her people
    Writing a book!
    The fears she has overcome to be where she is today
