Episode 11 - Healing with Horses: Vulnerability, Honesty + Wonder with Catherine Calderon
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Catherine Calderon. Cathy shares her deep, rich journey of dreaming with, connecting with, and working with horses and how it has unfolded throughout her life. Listening to guidance from Goddess or Spirit, she recently uprooted and moved to Florida from NYC to build Blue Harbor Farm. Cathy offers insight into how horses work with humans (and vice versa) on the energetic, psychological, and spiritual levels and why working with them brings so much healing including vulnerability, moving from emotional incongruity to honesty, working with trauma, and more. She talks openly about challenges she's moved through in this work and setting up a sanctuary for horses and humans alike as well as the practices and treatments that have helped her along the way (many of which may surprise you!). Heather also offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work. We hope that this podcast will inspire you to follow your heart's dream, reflect upon your own emotional honesty, and understand horses (and yourself) in new ways.

Episode 10 - Saying Yes + Exploring Your Breath with Kate Lewandowski
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Kate Lewandowski. Kate has worn many career hats in her life. From wildlife researcher, veterinarian, landscaper, jewelry designer, dancer, yoga teacher, massage teacher, business manager to her current role as a breath coach and owner of Be Well Marquette in Marquette, Michigan. Kate shares with us the common thread that she sees through her life's work and where saying "yes" has taken her even when she wasn't sure why or how to do what it was she was being asked to do. She takes us on a deep journey of the breath and how much information comes through in the way we breathe including how our internal and external worlds interrelate, how we behave, and how we store past moments in breath patterns. Kate shows us how the breath is a key to release and heal physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. Heather also offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work. We hope that this podcast will inspire you to say yes to what calls to you and to learn about the co-creation of life through your  breath.

In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Empress Ngala who has been exploring the art of self love and ritual for a number of years. She is a social worker by profession and is a certified yoga instructor, reiki practitioner, and is a student of spiritual herbalism, which looks at the way in which the spiritual energies of plants can support our daily living. She walks closely with those who came before her and works with others to cultivate and document their legacy. Empress Ngala shares what self love means to her and how reclaiming herself (and her name) has allowed her to create meaningful connection with herself, others, and life. She talks openly about her deep healing journey around self worth, the importance of ritual, and working with and trusting her higher Self, the wisdom of those who came before her, and spirit.

Episode 8 - Healing Authenticity + Holding Space with Holly Ramey
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Holly Ramey. Holly has studied yoga, meditation, tantra, reiki and tarot for many years and has engaged on a deep healing path. This path has helped Holly look at, question, and continue to evolve more and more into her authentic Self. Holly takes us on her journey of discovering the Tarot, why it resonated with her, and how she works with it (and other healing modalities) to help others (and herself) find insight and healing. She speaks openly about her life experience in working with the shadow and entering into the dark night of the soul in several meaningful ways, the medicine that came from these experiences, and how she shares all of this with others through ceremony, building community wherever she goes (even virtually), and holding space. Holly reminds us that there is always light and that we also need to venture into those internal places we may not want to go... Heather also offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work. We hope that this podcast will help you also traverse between worlds, hold or cultivate the space you need in order to heal and open to the shadow energies that want to be seen, heard, and integrated into your being.

Episode 7 - Plant Blindness, Reconnection + Flourishing with Tigrilla Gardenia
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Tigrilla Gardenia. Tigrilla works as a Nature-Inspired Leadership Mentor and studies Plant Intelligence and the Effects of Plant Music on Human Health. She is an influential speaker and mentor, running courses and workshops on reconnection with the plant kingdom and champions connection to nature as the basis for long-term health, happiness and success. Tigrilla shares with us what reconnection with the Plant Kingdom means to her and how, by seeing our own plant blindness and remembering our plantness, we can remember our part within a greater ecosystem (and that we, individually, are an entire ecosystem). She reveals scientific and other insights into what this reconnection means for humans and plants to co-exist, co-create and thrive (or flourish) and how this helps us discern what a crisis is and whether or not to take action. Heather also offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work. We hope that this podcast will inspire you to connect with a plant near you and see what happens next... To find your own path to leadership and your unique purpose within the ecosystem of which you are already a part (and/or to find a new ecosystem if needed).

Together we also discover connections to the human body and the plant world that surprised us! Shakti shares her journey of communicating with trees and how powerful it is to witness others find this understanding in their own way and how all of this is beneficial for the collective.

Episode 3 - Co-creative Farming, Community + Ancestry with Ekaterina Rodin + Jordan MacKinnon
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Ekaterina Rodin and Jordan MacKinnon, founders and farmers of The Humble Garden. Ekaterina and Jordan share their passion for working with the land, how they both started to be called to do so, and what it means for them. As organic farmers, they offer a unique (and perhaps unexpected) perspective on balance not just locally but on a macro-scale, trust, and lessons from listening to the land (and Jordan's 96-year-old grandfather).  We also explore the idea of ancestral knowledge and connection, what it means to co-create, the support of community, and an exchange economy. Heather then offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work. We hope that this podcast will inspire you to connect with your land, food, the community and energy around you, and to find what balance means for you.

Episode 2 - Service, Ritual + Crone Power with Amy Eberhardt
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Podcast Heather co-creates with Amy Eberhardt. Amy shares her journey of becoming. Through early inclinations of wanting to heal through touch to obstacles preventing this work to a career as a massage therapist and Integrative Health Practitioner at a major NYC medical center, Amy shares about her path and what it means to be of service to others. Amy then shares openly about menopause and walks us through a ritual she created to honor this major gateway of life as well as societal beliefs we hold around the natural aging process for women (that just aren't true...). She incorporates threads of what it means for her to be an elder and offers insight into her own healing process and a broader scope of what we all carry collectively.  Heather also offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work.  We hope that this podcast will encourage you to create ritual and the support you need or see missing for yourself and in your community.

Episode 1 - Envisioning New Ecosystems with Stewart Hoyt
In this episode of Majestic Wisdom Heather co-creates with Interdisciplinary Artist and Environmental Visionary Stewart Hoyt.  Stewart shares about powerful connections we can make in ourselves, our communities and our own back yard to create healthy ways of living interdependently. Stewart offers insight into his experience of Authentic and Ecstatic Movement and we talk about how being in touch with our bodies also helps us be in greater connection to nature, the land, and others around us.  His vision for how we can optimize the ways we live embraces not only how to work with the impacts of (and hopefully offset) climate change but how cities and communities can optimize and align themselves to ensure great economic and environmental benefit.  Heather also offers a plant spirit reading in relation to this work. There is much wisdom shared here and we hope this podcast inspires you to deepen your own experience or calls to action.
