How Herbalists Can Change With The Times
Play • 13 min

In this week's post, I want to talk about the state of the world right now how everything seems to be turning upside down. Everything is changing very rapidly in terms of the picture of human health and what's going on culturally and what's going on in nature. So how do we as herbalists change along with that? What are the things that we as herbalists can be doing to make sure that our practice of plant medicine is following the changes that are occurring?

ABOUT THE PLANT PATH

————————————

The Plant Path provides unique perspectives for the modern practitioner of herbalism that doesn’t just want to “fix what’s broken” in the body, but seeks to serve others with deeper levels of healing and transformation with herbal medicines. 

 

A unique synergy of clinical herbalism, alchemy, medical astrology, and herbal traditions from around the world, The Plant Path focuses on giving you a truly “wholistic” perspective on herbal medicine so you never fall into the trap of allopathic herbalism.

74. Womb Sovereignty, the Dark Feminine, and Mythopoetic Pregnancy Release - Samantha Zipporah
Your ancestors are with you every time the portal of the womb opens; our blood connects us to our lineage, to the mythic archetypes that hold meaning for us, and to our deepest inner selves. Whatever sort of womb release you experience, it lies on a continuum of commonality with all releases. Let us explore these interconnections so that we can be deeply rooted in our own bodies. TOPICS: * How Samantha got into this work * The womb as a source of pleasure and power, instead of pain * There is cellular alchemy no matter how a pregnancy ends (birth, miscarriage, abortion) and commonalities between all the different kinds of pregnancy release * Abortion is a nexus of sex and death and birth * The Dark Goddess and the Underworld Journey- seeing the release of a pregnancy through a mythic lens * Modern medicine is an industry, not a healing modality * The psychospiritual process of menstruation: when the cervix is open we can more easily access other states of consciousness * The Sacred Yes- what we are saying yes to when we say no to a pregnancy * Honoring death as a healing need in our culture * Function and access to Misoprostol * Understanding the two categories of abortion: mechanical and chemical * Demystifying the idea of a "natural abortion" * Herbs: emmenagogues and abortifacients  * Sitting at the feet of the plant elders * Systems of false authority, persecution, and the witch wound * How shame and secrecy around abortion can prolong bleeding * Conscious contraception * Giving yourself a 40 day postpartum healing period after any pregnancy release LINKS (if listening on an app that doesn’t support embedded links, find these at _https://mythicmedicine.love/podcast_): * _Samantha’s website_ * _Medicine Stories Patreon_ (podcast bonuses!) * _Medicine Stories Episode #73_ * _Mysteries of the Dark Moon: The Healing Power of the Dark Goddess_ by Demetra George * _Herbal Healing for Women_ by Rosemary Gladstar * _Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom_ by Dr. Christiane Northup * The _Womb Sovereignty Song_ performance (can also find on Soundcloud) * _Self-Managed Abortion, the Law, and CODIV-19 Fact Sheet_ * The _Self-Managed Abortion podcast_ * _Red School_ * _Guttmacher Institute Stats on Induced Abortion in the United States_ * _BBC reporting on abortion rates_ * _Wild Power_ _by Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer_ * _PlanCPills.org_ * _If/When/How_ * _Women on Waves_ _film_ * _Women on Web_ * _A New View of a Woman's Body_ _by Carol Downer_ * _Samantha Zipporah's Patreon_ * Take our fun _Which Healing Herb is Your Spirit Medicine?_ Quiz * My website _MythicMedicine.love_  * Medicine Stories _Facebook group_ * Mythic Medicine on _Instagram_ * Music by _Mariee Sioux_ (from her beautiful song Wild Eyes)

148. Deepening Tarot Connections: The Hierophant, The Lovers, and The Chariot
On today’s episode of Tarot for the Wild Soul podcast, we continue our exploration of how certain Tarot cards work together with The Hierophant, The Lovers, and The Chariot. These three cards invite us to come back home to ourselves, to reclaim our power, autonomy, self love — everything we have a tendency to give away to others. Who are we following, worshipping, or paying attention to? What are we giving away to others that is actually ours to cherish, hold, and celebrate? How would our life change, evolve, or transform if we began to reclaim these birthrights? In today’s episode, we will explore how The Hierophant is showing up as a teacher and anchor for us in these times, as well as how we can begin to lean into these three archetypes as a unit, and call back to ourselves what we’ve lost or given away. Transcript for this episode is coming soon!

Tarot for the Wild Soul explores the Tarot through an inclusive, trauma informed perspective, rooted in compassion, common sense, and critical thinking. Through a weaving of intuitively channeled downloads, answers to listener questions, and lessons around the cards, Tarot for the Wild Soul explores the Tarot as helpful, applicable medicine that can provide nourishment and clarity to us in our day to day lives. ABOUT LINDSAY Lindsay Mack is a queer intuitive Tarot teacher, writer, and the host of the Tarot for the Wild Soul podcast. Lindsay is the creator of Soul Tarot, a reinterpretation and intentional utilization of the Tarot as a healing tool, one that can assist us in differentiating the noise of our brain from the truth of our soul. Soul Tarot is a fusion of Lindsay’s 24 years of experience reading and studying Tarot, her work with her mentor, her own healing journey through complex PTSD/chronic illness, and channeled wisdom from her Guides. Through her regularly sold out workshops, retreats and online Tarot courses, Lindsay has had the profound honor of teaching Soul Tarot to thousands of people from all around the world. As a joyful and healthy survivor of childhood abuse, trauma & PTSD, Lindsay is passionately dedicated to honoring and helping to bring space, light and healing to those who are experiencing mental, emotional or physical suffering. It was the healing from a breakdown in 2014 that fully birthed her into this sacred work and onto her soul path. It is an organic part of her healing work with the Tarot, and she is honored to be sharing these offerings to those who feel called to them.

Episode 210 - Anarchy Loosed Upon the World
Beginning with an inspired interpretation of The Second Coming by W.B. Yeats, Michael Meade addresses how “anarchy was loosed upon the world” and “what rough beast” came round in the violent insurrection at the U.S. capital. Besides the sea of red MAGA hats and the rag tag array of military outfits and gear, the riotous display of symbols emblazoned on flags, banners and clothing bespoke a confusion and collusion of movements and purposes. As the lines between fans and fanatics, between anger and madness were obliterated, one message that did come through was that we have now entered a more desperate, dangerous phase of collective life. Meade states that: “Anyone who understands the deep human need for meaning and truth could intuitively know that attacking truth must eventually lead to attacking life itself. Facing this kind of zealotry, fanaticism and terrorism requires understanding the psychological dynamics of dissociation from one's regular identity and possession by unconscious resentments and floods of raw emotion.” Something is trying to be born, but it cannot be born of false certitude or blindly blaming others for troubles we all share. It cannot be born of hate or abject cruelty. It cannot be born of terrorizing people or destroying the symbols of democracy. Thank you for listening to and supporting this podcast.

An Herbalist's Guide to Successful Self-Experimentation
In this episode we explore the skills and disciplines necessary to conduct a successful self-experiment. Self-experimentation in this context might mean making changes to dietary, lifestyle, & movement habits; developing stress management skills; or trying out herbal medicines. First we address why and how self-experimentation can fall into self-justification, and how to avoid this. Then we highlight the skills of perception, reflection, and connection which are the bones of a good n=1 experiment, and share some key methods for developing them. Finally we talk about the practicalities that make this work go more smoothly, and share a few thoughts on how this all applies to clinical practice work as distinct from individual efforts. This is at the root of our work as herbalists, so we hope you’ll listen in! Plus, you just might have some intention-setting and some self-experimentation to embark on sometime soon, what with New Year’s resolutions and all. 😉 This is our last episode for 2020, so we’ll see you in 2021! If you’re dreaming up new ideas for the new year, why not do so literally? Check out our Herbs and Dreaming mini-course and delve deep into the Sandman’s kingdom. The plants know the way… As always, please *subscribe, rate, & review* our podcast wherever you listen, so others can find it more easily. Thank you!! Our theme music is “Wings” by Nicolai Heidlas.
