A painting of a white circle.

Reading Time: 4 minutes “The body can heal the mind faster than the mind can heal the mind.” – Leonard Orr What does this mean? Well, say, for example, someone suffers from anxiety. I could use other examples—depression, fear, anger, lack of abundance, loneliness, bad relationships, weight problems, career burnout, lack of fulfillment—but for now, let’s take the example […]

A sketch of an unhappy looking woman.

Reading Time: 4 minutes I’ll never forget the day I felt something inside my mind break. It was the day after the Manchester Half Marathon. Physically, I was the strongest I’d been in months; exhausted, yes, muscles screaming in pain, yes, yes, and yes, but I’d smashed my personal best and felt exhilarated. It was October, 2016. It was […]

An abstract mixed-media piece with gold concentric cirlces and some nature elements.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Recently I had an addiction medicine specialist who’s investigating the use of cannabis in recovery ask me about my own experience, and he wanted it in writing. Here’s my response. I’m a cannabinoid medicine patient, researcher, and very outspoken activist who speaks at a lot of events. I’ve fought off multiple health issues using cannabis […]

A painting of an extra colorfield field, desnly occupied with plants beings of the same variety.

Reading Time: 13 minutes When we meet the members of the Plant Kingdom as shamans, we see and/or describe it and its medicine differently than the West or the scientific world, for many, many reasons. Our shamanic interactions and relationships with the medicine produce distinct descriptions and terminology as well. When we explore the Plant Kingdom with the naked […]

An abstract painting: bright orange and yellow, broadstrokes.

Reading Time: 5 minutes Fourteen weeks migraine free, then bam! Over the weekend I was struck with a migraine: a day and a half of pain and puke. “This is painful” I tell myself. I allow myself to feel it and accept that yes, it’s unpleasant; adding a reminder: that it too shall pass. That’s unlike last year, from […]

A woman smiling - black and white.

Reading Time: 14 minutes Sitting quietly this morning, as I listened to the universe for inspirational writing to share, I was taken back through my past, to my days of hard suffering. Up until my thirties I had always been under the control of ill health, diagnosed with fibromyalgia, hypermobility joint syndrome (HJS), Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and chronic fatigue. […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” (Lewis B. Smedes) Sometimes we are hurt by someone or something so deeply that it seems we can’t put the situation aside. This person or thing keeps coming to mind, each time creating all kinds of unpleasant feelings: anger, pain, […]

An abstract painting of a person with their eyes covered with yellow paint,

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have seen people who are hurt and depressed spiral into crippling depression rather suddenly, losing their energy and desire to live. A lot of people face depression—at least 264 million people world-wide—and that statistic is pre-pandemic (WHO, 2020). Crippling depression may include symptoms of major depression such as a loss of appetite or interest […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes This edition of Healers Magazine, “The Other Pandemic: Integrative Medicine’s Defining Moment,” is the least successful in accommodating those living in bad faith; still, so long as we don’t trigger anyone, maybe that’s for the best. My good friend here in Florida had to leave her Indian ashram this time last year after becoming terribly […]

An abstract painting of someone with angelic wings crouching.

Reading Time: 4 minutes I really want to help people. That’s what I have been telling myself, at least consciously since 12 years old when I participated in the D.A.R.E. club doing skits about not taking drugs at a rave party. But how? How can I REALLY help people? My parents wanted me to be a doctor, and I […]
