Find Dr. Vest at http://www.drjenniferlisavest.com/ @spiritteacher on IG "I come from a long line of seers. My mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother on the maternal line and my grandfather and great-grandmother on the paternal side all had the gift of sight. As an infant, my great-grandmother Lula-Mae, identified me as the one who had carried the gift into the next generation and began training me as a child. Born with the gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and mediumship, I was able to develop these gifts through long study and practice at the hands of many teachers. I studied informally with women several healers in the Jamaican Revivalist and Trinidadian Shango traditions (including Mother Joyce, Sister Nelson, Mother Barrett, Queenie, Sister Grant, Mother Mavis, Mother Vilola, Mother Wright, Mother Robinson and others) and was trained as a Firekeeper in the Native American sweatlodge by Pheonix. I also studied with veteran mediums and healers at Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp in Cassadga, Florida where I took classes in psychic development, mediumship, healing, and trance for five years with such teachers as Maeda Jones, M.A., Mary Rose Gray, RN. Marie Wilson-Gates, Joan Piper, and Suzanne DeWees, PhD, among others. I became a Reiki Master under a Reiki Master, Marie Gates an have also taken classes in Pranic Healing, Transformational Hypnosis, and other modalities. I also spent ten years undergoing past life regressions in order to develop an understanding of the impact past lives have on current lives. I am a former professor of Cross-Cultural Philosophy where my areas of specialization were African and Native American philosophy. My PHD is in Ethnic Studies/Indigenous Philosophy from UC Berkeley. I have several publications on topics in philosophy, social justice, and poetry. As a mixed blood Of Haitian, Seminole, German, and Norwegian heritage, I combine what I have learned from African, Caribbean, and Native American spiritist traditions, and Euro-American Spiritualist traditions into what I practice. In all that I do I am guided by Spirit and I do my best to be a pure vessel and a hollow bone." #reiki #herbalism #plantcunningpodcast #herbalist #herbalmedicine #medicalintuition #medicalintuitive #psychicprotection #psychic #spiritualist #spirtuality #medium #clairvoyance #podcast

Ep. 127: S.M. Harlow on Tea as Magical Craft
S.M. Harlow discovered her love of romantic fiction and the wildcraft over two decades ago. Her calling for the craft began when she was a young girl at eleven, among the trees and the wind.

Tea was a gift given to her by a Master, who taught her how spirituality and healing is found within its brewed depths.
Romantic fiction was a turning point in Harlow's teens, setting the imagination free and ablaze. It set her off towards expressing her creative fantasies on paper.

Find Norio here: Norio Kushi
"Throughout his life Norio Kushi followed his passion for wheels: he bicycled up to 90 miles a day as a child, drove a taxi in Boston, started a bus company in Vermont, and pursued a career driving a big rig throughout North America. While driving his truck, Norio stopped thinking for more than two weeks. Through this experience, Norio realized that the “self” we think we are does not exist. The “self” exists only in our thinking, in our internal dialogue, and is the single source of all human suffering. By recognizing the illusion of the self, Norio awakened to complete peace and unconditional love, a natural state that is humanity’s true nature. Norio now shares the insights into the human tapestry into which we’re born and how one may naturally and effortlessly experience our true nature."
