Bloom Post is a shaman with many plant allies. In this episode, we talk about shamanism as an inclusive and expansive spiritual path. Bloom shares the difference between healing and curing and whether we can have both. We dig into working with essences for doing accessible, gentle transformational work. We also talk about:

  • Reframing a mental illness diagnosis as the birth of a healer
  • Releasing vs integrating for wholeness, healing and letting go
  • Chopping wood and carrying water as ceremony
  • Sacred imagination as a channel for spirit to speak
  • Shifting focus from fear and drama to awareness, healing & love
  • What to ask the plant spirits when you’re beginning to work with them

The answers are in the plants. The plants carry the answers.”
