3 Delicious Summer Recipes For This Powerful Flower

Ever wondered why certain plants are considered weeds and others are deemed worthy of keeping around? The wise women healers we work with would tell you there’s no such thing as a “weed”, and that often times the wild plants that sprout up in our well-groomed backyards are encroaching on our lives because we need them. Today, I want to focus on a bright and cheery superherb that has been aiding humans for thousands of years but somehow gets a bad rap here in the United States. My ... [Read more...]

This Woman’s Miraculous Recovery Gave Birth To
“Face Yoga”

In the middle of a jungle ceremony a few years ago, a shaman told me, “Sometimes you have to break down in order to break through.” One of the essential truths on the ancestral healing path is that crisis and transformation often go hand in hand. This crisis can come in a variety of shapes and forms – it may be a challenging life circumstance that brings a person to their existential edge, or a severe health condition that seemed almost impossible to overcome – until you did. A ... [Read more...]

An Eye Gazing Exercise For Soul Vision

I have a little challenge for you today that involves a simple, but often cathartic ritual that has been practiced for thousands of years — eye gazing. Our eyes are highly complex organs, capable of distinguishing the most finite details of our surroundings and interpreting the slightest discrepancy in another’s countenance. And yet, we rarely make direct eye contact with one another for more than a flashing moment. It can feel awkward to lock eyes for too long during a normal ... [Read more...]

Cherokee Wolf Wisdom

On a warm summer night a few years ago, an Ojibwe elder in the backwoods of Wisconsin shared a tale to illustrate an important choice we all have to make as we walk through this world. His words have stuck with me ever since and are particularly handy in times of intensity. Given that today is the summer solstice, I thought that now would be a good time to share this ancient wisdom with you. I hope this teaching serves you as well. Stay curious, Nick Polizzi Founder, The Sacred Science The Two ... [Read more...]

How Our Wounds Can Heal Us

I came across a quote a few days ago that stopped me in my tracks. “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ― Rumi The poet was probably speaking symbolically when he used the term “wound” above, referring to those places within us that have yet to be healed. But certain indigenous cultures take this concept much more literally and use these words of wisdom when treating their sick. For thousands of years, people in the Amazon jungle have regarded physical ... [Read more...]

Poetic Wisdom From A Sufi Mystic

I came across a poem yesterday that gave me a perfectly timed dose of insight. The wisdom it contained was something I’ve heard spoken before by a shaman, but using different words. The piece below from the 13th century poet Rumi carries within it an essence that is central to many spiritual traditions around the world. The teaching itself may seem simple, but the most powerful ones always do. The Guest House This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression,... [Read more...]

3 Powerful Indigenous Herbs From North America

Growing up, I was fascinated by the hundreds of interesting plants that grew in the forests behind my childhood home in rural Connecticut. We would wander down old forgotten trails for hours, lost in the greenery and enchanted by the timelessness of the place. I would later come to realize that these old woods are home to one of the most extensive systems of indigenous medicine in the world. We now know that the original inhabitants of North America were extremely advanced, far beyond ... [Read more...]

Spring Medicine For The Soul

We find ourselves in a powerful and transformative time of year – an interim period between two seasons. The spring equinox was a few weeks ago, but the ground of the northern hemisphere is still remembering the winter and just beginning to wake up to the promise of the warmer months. This transitory phase is celebrated by spiritual traditions the world over, a living symbol of rebirth and the circle of life. In honor of spring, I’d like to explore a concept that lives at the very heart... [Read more...]

A Powerful Habit I Learned From A Shaman

A few years ago, a shaman in Honduras taught me an extremely useful technique that gives you clarity on your path and dissolves stress and anxiety. It’s had a pretty profound effect on my life and today I’d like to share it with you. Like much of the healing wisdom that comes from native cultures, this teaching began with an observation about nature. As we sat together, the curandero asked me how I felt about deer. Yes, our furry four-legged friends that frolic in the forest. He ... [Read more...]

Nourishing Your Inner Garden

I came across the little saying below yesterday and felt called to share it. “Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds.” Our thoughts often pass behind our eyelids without much investigation into their origin, as though these assemblages of information are out of our control – a simple reaction to something we just witnessed. But are they really so untamable? In Eastern religions, particularly Tibetan Buddhism, there is a ... [Read more...]
