Ep 102, Using the Power of

Plant Medicine Properly for

Mental Health and Healing

Host & creator, natalie viglione

Plant medicine retreats and experiences are becoming a common theme in many conversations; for those that are seeking a connection to something MORE. This is even a conversation that I have within my friend groups as we know that plant medicine is powerful and something we’re tapping into as we bring back the wisdom of our ancient ancestors and the wisdom we have held in our former lives.

Jonathan de Potter is bringing something beautiful to the world in his work with Behold Retreats as the Founder & Creator, along with the healers and shamans he has as part of the team. In this episode, we uncover the beauty (and important advice) about exploring the plant medicine realm:

  • How plant medicine (like psilocybin and ayahuasca) helps you unlock your spirituality (nothing related to religion but something far beyond that)
  • Being fully prepared for the experience is key which is detoxing beforehand and choosing to have ample time to integrate the experience afterwards
  • How “modern science” is connecting back into what our ancient ancestors already knew 
  • Why it’s important to understand that this medicine works on an energetic level and what that really means 
  • That people need to be called to doing this rather than pushing themselves into experiences of plant medicine and the power it holds 
  • And more!
Make sure to watch (or listen) to the full episode below!
