In this episode, we welcome Lindsay Fauntleroy back to the podcast! Lindsay is a medicine maker, educator, acupuncturist, and author of In Our Element — a self-help guide that integrates acupuncture theory, flower essences, yoga and ancestral spirituality.
We talk about the naturally rising levels of stress and anxiety during this time of year and the corresponding elemental forces.
Exploring the way stress and anxiety manifest in the context of the different elements, we offer our favorite flower essences for each scenario. And wow do we cover a lot!
Join us on this whirlwind dive into the elements as a lens for Flower Essence Therapy.
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.
Join us for a discussion on a trauma-informed process using flower essences to unfreeze stuck emotions, heal old wounds, and release ancestral traumas. We are delighted to bring Loey Colebeck on the podcast to share the hopeful message that healing is possible.
Kathleen and Rochana discuss the “fifth season” of Late Summer from both the Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic perspective. As we switch from the expansiveness of summer to the drawing in energy of fall, stress and worry can be exacerbated as the heat of the season starts to penetrate the field of the energy body. Flower Essences can support you in this time of inner and outer change.
In this episode, we discuss the tricky topic of anger. Like all emotions, anger has a message and needs to be heard. In the season of Spring, this issue is particularly prominent, and we view it through the lenses of Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine.
Most of us enjoy the energy and enthusiasm of spring, but there are challenges as well. In this episode, we discuss the season from the perspectives of various world traditions, how to detox and support your liver in spring, what to do about grouchiness and irritability, and how to maintain focus and momentum to accomplish your goals.
