How can plant medicines help humanity to heal?
“The sacred master plant medicines help us remember who we are, where we have come from and where we are going. They help us to enter different levels of our awareness and consciousness, to be able to access different levels of healing for our bodies, minds and spirits.” ~ Erika Gagnon
In this episode Amisha meets Canadian Ceremonial leader & Wisdom Keeper Erika Gagnon.
Erika grew up in a typically North American cultural experience without any spiritual inclinations. She was raised in family of mixed heritage amid the separatist movement in Quebec. We hear the story of how - after reaching a crisis point in her early thirties which led to a series of transformational experiences - she connected for the first time with the Red Road, and an unexplored part of her ancestry, beginning her journey on the medicine path, which now spans almost three decades.
Together Erika and Amisha speak about how to honour the sacred medicines appropriately and the dangers and deceptions that abound in the world of plant medicine. Erika speaks about working with tobacco as a medicine for ritual and healing - and how it differs from the mainstream commercial and recreational use of tobacco. She shares her experiences of working consciously with trauma and the discordant or destructive energies that can become lodged in our bodies, in order to release and heal them.
