Ep.17 I Dream My Own Medicine: Transforming pain through the priestess arts with Seraphina Capranos
After suffering injury to her spine as a teenager, Seraphina Capranos was declared by the conventional medical system to lead a life of suffering in chronic pain. Determined to heal herself, she returned to her roots and began a professional study of natural medicine at Emerson College of Herbology (1998) leading her to study with renowned herbalist Susun S. Weed at The Wise Woman Center in NY (1999) and then soon after healers in the desert of New Mexico.
She is passionate about educating and empowering people in the wisdom of natural medicine. Seraphina is a graduate of the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy (2005) and in addition to offering empowering, heart-centered classes in herbalism and homeopathy, she loves teaching mystical earth-based tools for living a fullfilled and vital life.
In this episode, I ask Seraphina about how to weave in ancient feminine wisdom when we as women face the pain that may accompany experiences such as miscarriage and hysterectomy. I love her reflections around the benefit of sisterhood and community during difficult times and how emotion being held and shared among those circling up can be an essentially part of the healing 💐
It reminds me how women are the medicine and how pain and suffering can expand into a greater capacity to love when held in truth and tenderness.
