    Intuitive Healing with Holly Ramey

    The healers get witchy in this episode of Wild Healers. We are honored to interview Holly!

    Wellness Culture with TRILUNA

    Your hosts Sara Rosser and Dr. Megan Galaske were fortunate to interview the founders of TRILUNA Wellness, Ashley Brooke James and Elizabeth Moore. Join them as they discuss community, corporate and individual wellness that surpasses the boundaries of “wellness culture”.  If you’re tired of being fed a version of this industry that is exclusive, inaccessible and one-size-fits-all,  then we invite you to join this conversation. We’ll dig into necessary conversations about reforming and demanding justice in a culture that once thrived on elitism.

    Back to School Part 3: Camp School

    Back to School Part 3: Camp School

    Dr. Galaske makes a personal announcement on this special episode of Wild Healers.

    Dr. Megan Galaske and her husband Nathan are excited to announce their new online community for busy parents adjusting to schooling from home this year- Camp School. http://www.thecampschool.com They provide an interactive daily schedule, community, and enrichment courses in everything from axe wielding to ballet lessons. They have a passion for leading families from overwhelm to survival. They are ready to guide others, just as they have worked so hard this year to keep their own family afloat. 

    From Dr. Galaske: 
    I'm not going anywhere-not away from Wild Healers. Sara and I still have so much to say about the current state of healing, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to share our musings here with you. 

    Leaving clinical practice was a difficult decision-one that's been a year in the making. I've been waiting for the right time to tell you all, and that time is now. 
    I may not be leaving forever, but for now, this is what my family-and I- need. I've been keeping this close to my heart since I resigned in February of 2020-3 weeks before COVID-19 hit. I felt my duty as a doctor during this trying time continue to call me to the practice of medicine for all these months. But now it's finally time to leave.

    I believe in my intuitive Knowing that I am on this earth to help families and children. My path has led me down a very windy road-one that I honestly have not understood at multiple times during my life. But I know it has led me to just where I'm supposed to be. I'm honored you all have let me into your lives and I will continue to serve you where you need me. I hope as we all learn what it truly is to die to ego and to self daily, and to resurrect the True Self, that I can continue to grow and change and learn from you all and that I can be a conduit of love in whatever way I am blessed to be able to. Thank you all truly, it is an honor to love you and feel your love back in return.

    Back to School Part 2: Good Touch Bad Touch

    Back to School Part 2: Good Touch Bad Touch

    As we have our children in our homes, have them possibly around others outside the home (2020 will end one day...), and send them to school, how can we discuss our autonomy over our bodies in an effective way? It's a conversation we all need to be having, yet sometimes it feels so difficult to navigate we can find ourselves avoiding it. Maybe we feel uncomfortable due to the way we were raised or taught. Maybe we have experienced trauma ourselves and bringing it up is painful. We hope to provide support and ideas for you in this episode, by approaching a delicate task in a way we hope empowers you and your family.

    Back To School: Part 1 of 3

    Back To School: Part 1 of 3

    Homeschool! Masks! Public School! Ahhh! The next seemingly overwhelming but potentially transformative step in this pandemic is deciding what to do with our children’s schooling. What’s best for our family? What’s best for health? What’s best for the economy? What’s best for my immunocompromised neighbor? What’s best for me?! In a world of never-ending swirling questions that sometimes make it feel like we are more opposite than ever, we remember:  We are more alike than we are different.

    Mid 2020 Check Up

    Mid 2020 Check Up

    2020, the year of rebirth. 
    Your hosts check in on each other, in the midst of global upheaval. It’s a picture quite different than they had anticipated for the year they started this journey—but perhaps the perfect time for surrendering to birthing pains of a new world. As Dr. Galaske and Sara open up about how they feel during a global pandemic and social revolution, they give each other (and hopefully you) encouragement to keep up the fight even when weary.  We are just, as Ram Dass said, walking each other home.

Useful, thought-provoking, and fun

I use many of these episodes in my trainings for yoga teachers about how to beat support pregnant students. Wealth of knowledge, approachable, and really practical. Thank you!

A must listen for all providers and people alike

As a midwife working in a hospital based system in the north east, this podcast brings to light so many topics I see daily. This podcast is a must-listen for all providers to bridge the gap between professions. Interdisciplinary approach to medicine only benefits patient care, and we cannot do that unless we break down the bias walls that contain us. Great work!

Bridging the Great Divide

I am a home birth midwife. In September of 2018 I delivered a baby with Downs Syndrome and I felt like it would be good to have her checked out by a Pediatrician. I didn’t know Dr Megan Galaske yet, but she is who I was fortunate to get that day! When a midwife does a transport she wants her client to be treated well by the receiving health care providers. Not only to get good medical care, but to not be made to feel bad for choosing a midwife or a home birth. Dr Megan Galaske was very kind and she mentioned that she had respect for midwives. This put me at ease along with this family who was not expecting to have a baby with Downs and who were dealing with a lot already. I felt like the angels were smiling on us that day to have given us such an awesome Pediatrician!
