Parenting is the hardest job I have ever done. There is no rule book yet everyone has an opinion about how you should do it. In the past 15 years I have been trying to write my own rule book on parenting and i'm not going to BS and say I have it all figured out but I have discovered some cool things that sure have helped. In this episode, I share how I have used my tools of astrology, crystals and psychogy to help raise my children. Please know this is not an episode where I tell you why you should do what I do, I am simply sharing how I raise my kids using the cosmos.
In this episode I speak with Katie Cotton a Holistic Health Practitioner and Womb Healing Facilitator in Washington. Katie in me explore several taboo subjects in this interview . We discuss the trauma and healing in the womb space and how this work has changed both of our lives. We also dive into plant medicine and how it can be used for trauma, anxiety, and to be more present in your day to day life. Finally we discuss sex and how we are striving to take the shame and stigma away from this with our own children.
