Sakina Di Pace is an acupuncturist, and- as you may have guessed- a facial cupping expert! When she first began working with facial cupping, she noticed immediate and significant benefits to her patients, and knew she must begin incorporating this ancient modality into more of her offerings. In 2020, Sakina was no longer able to meet with patients one-on-one due to lockdowns, thus inspiring her to bring this knowledge and expertise to the online world, offering videos and tools for people around the world who were interested in learning this unique practice from the safety + comfort of their own homes.

In this episode, Sakina shares the origins and history of facial cupping, as well as the myriad benefits this practice offers. If you're interested in learning more about improving your overall health, that of your delicate facial skin, and even the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and sagging- this is the episode for you!

We talk a bit about how to be open to receiving and finding balance and flow in day-to-day life, the pillars of self love, healthy boundaries, and emotional self-sufficiency.

Josh Fox has built a life around the healing powers of plants, people, and community. He weaves herbs, song, and acupuncture into his private healing practice, and writes music that uplifts the heart, honors his plant allies, and tickles the human spirit. With the same gentle, grounded nature he receives patients, he regularly holds group ceremony space around grief, heart-healing, and song-sharing.

In this episode, Josh shares his vision and practices for tending the village heart through remembering our humanness and offering grief rituals within his community. He speaks on the importance of having safe spaces for people to express their grief, and all of the emotions that can arise throughout this process.

Josh discusses his own grief initiation, and how he now views his role as a sort of apprentice to grief itself. He offers some ideas for different ways that people can enter into a conscious relationship with grief, and how to engage in a supportive and supported way by asking spirit for help.

Catherine Björksten is a holistic practitioner, specializing in supporting people who are going through a Spiritual Awakening. Her motto is integrated and embodied awakening. Following a career in marketing and advertising and becoming a mother of two, she went through a major
awakening herself, which led her to study psychotherapy, spiritual counseling, shamanism, and apprenticing with Indigenous leaders and mystical masters worldwide.

In this episode, Catherine discusses what it means to delve into the deep, dark corners of our psyche and to shine a light into our own innate world of shadows. We talk about the importance of shadow work + understanding the underworld journey we are currently navigating as a collective at this time, and how the willingness to do this inner work and face our own unhealed aspects of ourselves can ultimately bring great empowerment. 

Catherine also shares how shadow work and this "descent" is correlated with the feminine awakening and the symbolic womb space, and how this also relates to our connection with the earth.
