Podcast 034: Herbal Affinities & Softening In Service

Ryn leads off this week with a discussion of herbal affinities – the ways in which herbs may be centered in their effects on a particular organ or type of tissue in the body – and how these can help you make good herbal choices or make more effective formulas.

Katja shares some thoughts about how to cope with the political crisis machine by finding ways to enter into service for the good of others – it turns out, it helps you too! If you find it difficult to get there, don’t worry: she also shares a few herbal friends who help us soften into a place of receptivity and compassion.

Herbs discussed this week include hawthorn, marshmallow, goldenseal, crampbark, and motherwort.
