FEP50 Botanical Families as a Guide to Flower Essences with Ruth Toledo Altschuler

Ruth Toledo Altschuler joins us for our 50th show!
As a returning guest of the podcast and partner in the Flower Essence Conference, you’ll most likely be familiar with the incredible depth of insight Ruth has in Flower Essence Therapy. She has been a practitioner and educator for over three decades, and has a unique combination of experience unparalleled in the field.
In this episode, we talk about understanding flower essences in the context of their botanical families.
When we are able to group essence plants this way, patterns emerge that can help us to find the right essence faster for a given concern.
And when we apply the observation of the plant signature, we can better see the distinctions of their healing qualities within their family.
This plant-centric system of learning about flower essences is something the three of us resonate deeply with, and we are honored to work with Ruth on new educational offerings (stay tuned!).
For now, enjoy this lovely conversation.

FEP49 The Five Elements as Soul Medicine with Lindsay Fauntleroy

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.

FEP46 Sharing the Legacy of Flower Essence Therapy

Kathleen and Rochana welcome Ruth Toledo Altschuler to talk about our current collaboration together—organizing the online Flower Essence Conference (coming up, April 29th, 2022!). We hear from Ruth about the impetus behind this project and the way that flower essence conferences of the past have brought people together in heartfelt community.

We also share an excerpt from one of our pre-recorded conference sessions, “Tending the Legacy of Flower Essence Therapy”. Join us for a fascinating discussion with Isabela Bisconcini, a flower essence educator, practitioner and psychotherapist from Brazil, on the multidimensional transmission and living legacy of flower essence information.

FEP28 Heidi Smith and the Bloom Book

Heidi Smith joins us on the podcast to discuss her new book The Bloom Book and the practice of Flower Essence Therapy. Our wide ranging conversation touched on her passion for social justice, reclaiming feminine consciousness, and her collaborative approach to healing trauma.
