Bridging the Gap Between Activism & Social Change Through Art & Psychedelic Shamanism (Plant Based Medicine) with Multidimensional Artist, Jana Cruder
Jana Cruder is Bridging the gap between Activism & Social Change through: ART PERFORMANCE, FILM, PHOTOGRAPHY & INSTALLATION. She is an award winning photographer that has captured some of the most well known celebrities, tastemakers and influential people in the public eye. Her work as balances femininity and power. Cruder’s experimental, experiential, immersive, conceptual installations range from the environment, society technology, and how it affects the human condition. In other words our evolution as a global society. We also take an honest journey into her passion as she gives us insight into her experiences as a plant alchemist. And how plant based medicine such as ayahuasca , psilocybin - mushrooms, + others, are used in sacred ceremonies because of their healing properties - that not only can heal anxiety, depression, ptsd but also ancestral trauma. Jana gives a sneak peak into her newest body of work slated for 2021, "Room of Rainbows." The resurgence of interest in psychedelics among medical researchers in the past decade has led to new findings and ongoing clinical trials using LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, and other drugs. But while this research is taking place in clinical settings, an underground—and understudied—community of people is helping others to use plant-based hallucinogenic drugs. In guided sessions or ceremonies, facilitators administer drugs like ayahuasca or psilocybin to people looking to alter their consciousness and improve their mental health. Check Out More of Her Work & Follow Jana Cruder on Instagram for updates.

Harnessing your Inner Priestess with Safyra
Safyra is a clairvoyant hypnotherapist with a background in Tao Yoga, NLP Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Qigong, Tantrica and Dance. She is the definition of a mystic and healer in my opinion, and has trained, taught and continues to work internationally with clients in Bali, Thailand, The Middle East, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, New York, San Francisco and online and is based in Los Angeles. She uses the art of dance to activate sacred femininity expressing the power of the body. Safyra is a friend, someone who I admire greatly and have worked with regularly in hypnosis to heal my own trauma, karmic connections, contracts and pre-conditioned behaviors. I have taken classes and workshops with her and have witnessed her innate authenticity in holding her own power while helping others gain theirs.

Sexual Wellness Through Creative Pleasure with guest Dr. Cara Quant, Founder of Viva LA Vulva LA | We discuss Art, Female Sexuality, Lubes, Pussy Oracles & Female Ejaculation aka "Squirting."
In this episode of Sex, Magick and Dessert I interview Dr. Cara Quant. Dr Quant is an internal medicine physician and founder of Viva La Vulva, an organization that educates on female sexual health and wellness and multimedia visual arts. We discuss the benefits of sexual pleasure and creativity, pussy oracle "vulva readings," suggested lubricants, a healthy pelvic floor and female ejaculation aka squirting. "The Art World & The Medical World Together Can Do More Than Seperately." - Dr. Cara Quant Viva La Vulva’s mission is to break down the barriers that stop both men and women from talking and learning about female sexual health in a way that transcends race, culture, age and geography. A safe engaging platform through art and medical expertise to normalize the concept of female sexual health. A driving force of change in the way female sexual health is perceived. Viva La Vulva is a movement created and organized by Internal Medicine physician, Dr. Cara Quant who noticed how men’s sexual issues are regularly discussed in the medical community, but women’s sexual health issues are often overlooked. She understands that the language of art can be used for education and as a means of healing. She brought together a diverse team of people with a shared vision to bring the idea of Viva La Vulva into reality. “So many things can affect a woman’s sexual health throughout her life such as sexual abuse, pregnancy, stress, menopause, cultural ideals and often times the pain or lack of desire that happens as a result of these life events that are not addressed. Education is the key to overcoming.” says Dr. Quant. https://vivalavulvala.org Viva La Vulva Podcast https://www.facebook.com/vivalavulvala/ https://www.instagram.com/vivalavulvala/ For more info on Franceasca Seiden and SAHA visit Sexual Alchemy Healing Arts and LAiCreatives
