Ep 53 - Empowering The Self With Mushroom Shaman Shonagh Home | SYMBOLOGY, SACREDNESS OF BEES, SOCIETY

Our cultures have dismissed the worlds of the unseen altogether. If you go back far enough, our people were connected with nature, the land, the ancestors, and the spirits. This was understood that there was the world of the seen, and the world of the unseen.
— Shonagh Home

Shonagh Home is a shamanic therapist, teacher, author and poet. Shonagh holds the feminine voice for the reverent use of the sacred mushroom, authoring a book on the subject titled, 'Love and Spirit Medicine'. She also authored another book, 'Poetic Whispers from the Green Realms', which discusses the role of entheogens to inspire poetic inspiration and connect our ancient ancestors to the unseen intelligences of nature.
