FEP49 The Five Elements as Soul Medicine with Lindsay Fauntleroy

08 Aug 2022

Our conversation centered around the five element system as a process for understanding our own cycles, as well as where we are collectively in this moment and what beautiful flower essence is coming forward.

We talk about Lindsay’s new book, “In Our Element: Using the Five Elements as Soul Medicine to Unleash Your Personal Power”, and the inspirational way she combines flower essences, yoga poses and music playlists as medicine for the body, mind and soul.

We love how she joyfully weaves together Eastern medicine, western psychology, and African ancestral principles of spirituality in a modern way that is easy to understand, actionable and accessible.

FEP48 Soul Purpose and the Divine Feminine with Sara Artemisia

05 Jul 2022

This month we are joined by Sara Artemisia — a Flower Essence Practitioner, Plant Spirit Wisdom Teacher, and host of the Plant Spirit Podcast and the Plant Spirit Herbalism Summit.

Our discussion is a rich exploration of soul purpose and the re-emergence of the divine feminine, with deep wisdom and powerful activation by the Wild Roses and Queen Anne’s Lace.

Honoring the wisdom embedded in traditional fairy tales, we delve into the symbolism of Sleeping Beauty/Briar Rose and how it relates to the modern day awakening of divine feminine consciousness.

We talk about the journey of finding our purpose as not being a single act but rather a series of intuitive steps on our life path, and learning to trust the guidance all around us with help from the plants and flower essences.

FEP47 Listening To The Ancients

27 May 2022

Join us for a deep dive into the plant signatures and flower essence energetics of our two favorite trees: Redwood and Magnolia. These ancient beings have been on the planet since dinosaurs roamed the earth, and we think they have much wisdom for us.

Redwoods are the tallest tree, one of the longest living, and grow in groups that are connected by their root system. They help us to see the big picture, be resilient, and foster community.

Magnolias are one of the first flowering plants on the planet, and they imbue us with hope and enthusiasm for this earthly experience. They aid us in fully inhabiting our bodies so we can access our unique gifts and pursue our life’s work.

FEP44 The Courageous Heart

14 Feb 2022

Kathleen and Rochana explore what it means to maintain heart-centered courage in the face of extended adversity — notably during the pandemic and natural disasters related to climate change. Collectively we are all dealing with disconnection and the grief of what has been lost, and we need strength for what we are still going through during this time of uncertainty. Flower essences can help us stay present, connected, and embodied while nurturing our heart and helping us cultivate compassion for ourselves and others.

FEP43 Self Acceptance

Kathleen and Rochana talk about fully loving and accepting ourselves, foibles and all. What holds us back from accepting ourselves without conditions?
