Thank you everyone for your questions about plant medicine.
I enjoyed your emails, texts, and even those questions that I got while coming and going from yoga class. 🙂
To help us explore these questions together, I’ve brought some amazing guests together for a podcast series about healing through plant medicine.
Today’s guest is my dear friend Sam Liebowitz. Sam previously joined me to discuss how to experience everyday awakening.
Sam returns to discuss his work in energy medicine and other healing modalities. Sam reveals his many projects as a multifaceted human on a mission to help others. Listen carefully for a discussion of Sam’s beta program around integration and healing in the community.
Our discussion unveils 9 powerful mantras. Enjoy the interview!
Mantra #1: Learning about healing can unveil the Healer underneath. Watch this video to learn more:
Mantra #2: You can heal and be healed in many ways/many modalities.
Mantra #3: The Healer and the Healee co-create the healing (with the Healee, not the Healer, truly driving the process).
Mantra #4: Facilitation is not fixing.
Mantra #5: Facilitation is about holding space and creating safety for healing.
Mantra #6: Facilitation is about seeing people as already whole without expectations. Watch this video to learn more:
Mantra #7: Preparation is key.
Mantra #8: Less can be more (going slow can be the fastest way).
Mantra #9: Follow-up (integration) is crucial. Sam mentions four key elements: rest, whole foods, hydration, and movement; a fifth would be spending time in nature.
Please listen carefully to Sam discuss the need for caution and discernment when thinking about plant medicines.
The Medicine Wheel
Sam described the medicine wheel as containing the four elements of heart, mind, body, and spirit.
In balance, they are:
Heart (water): self-love and connection to others
Mind (fire): analytics and planning
Body (earth): feeling grounded and safe in one’s body
Spirit (air): feeling connected to something greater than one’s self
Heart (water): example- MDMA
Mind (fire): example- psilocybin
Body (earth): example- San Pedro
Spirit (air): example- ayahuasca
