MoonWise show

Summary: Learn about awakening your senses to nature and building your sanctuary with healer and teacher Shayne Case. “To be bored with plants is one of the most beautiful places to be.” - Shayne Case In this episode of #moonwisepodcast, we speak with healer, teacher, writer and medicine maker Shayne Case about awakening the senses for nature connection and building your sanctuary in an increasingly tense world. Born from the forest's edge in southwestern Germany and hand fed by the prairie ghosts of her Lakota ancestry, Shayne Case derives her inspiration from these two disparate landscapes. The world of the unseen is her mother tongue and she uses this to bridge communication between the people who come to see her for healing and their spiritual guides. Shayne is a mother, healer, teacher, writer, medicine maker, and an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. Each of these roles she holds with sacred intention and equal passion. We discuss her work with the plant people in creating flower essences, unlearning institutional knowledge and developing an intuitive relationship with the natural world. Shayne also shares her favorite self-mothering practices and ways to cultivate beauty in daily life. We also talk about: Working with plant and stone people Finding your unique medicine bundle The wisdom of weather Creating feasts for the senses Using the medicine of call-out culture The importance of play
