Are Those Rose Colored Glasses You're Wearing?

Episode 72The Witch and The Puritan, if I could have named this episode anything, it would have been that. Amanda Dilday brings you closer to the divine simply by sharing her story. She talks about the dangers of not listening to yourself, being met by the plants and flowing like water, running off the path and doing cartwheels is how she is living her life.Amanda Dilday is a mother, herbalist, teacher, author, land lover, and child of the Tennessee hills. Now living in the Upstate of South Carolina, she is the creatrix of Alchemilla’s School of Embodied Herbalism and feels closest to Spirit when she is connecting people to plants and humans to land. Amanda hosts the podcast, Whispers: Plant Spirit Medicine, where she shares nature’s medicine and offers heart-stories of healing. In her book, Flowers for a Girl: Plant Medicine and Sexual Trauma, Amanda shares her journey of healing from childhood sexual abuse with the plants as her closest allies. In love with rocks and water, blueberries, wildflowers, and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Amanda longs for the Land with which she works closely, open and willing to listen, co-create, and offer healing. Offering consultations and classes, Amanda is most in the Flow when she is holding space for others to communicate with plants, connect to place, and come home to themselves.

28 | Plant Medicine and Sexual Trauma with Amanda Dilday

HerbRally

Today's episode is from a webinar that herbalist Amanda Dilday recorded last month as an offering for #MeToo. You can find the original webinar on her website Alchemilla.  Amanda also wrote a book called Flowers for a Girl: Plant Medicine and Sexual Trauma. This is not a protocol or a prescription. Rather, it is something of a memoir, a healing memoir, an herbal memoir, a story.  "Well, friends. Here it is: last night's class on plant medicine and sexual trauma. Just send it out into the world, and pray for it to be blessed. Pray for protection and for healing. Pray for light and for truth. I know there will be more classes. There was so much more to say--even about these plants, and there were so many more plants! Gentle, powerful support is all around us. It's a simple beginning (and quickly put together), but yesterday, I knew in my very heart that I needed to quickly put some simple tools into people's hands. I had to begin. Some plants from last night's class include violet, ghost pipe, marjoram, and blueberries--to name a few. <3" - Amanda Dilday ABOUT AMANDA: I am a wife, mother, writer, teacher, and student of the plants.  My roots are in the Appalachian Mountains.  My home rests at the foothills of the Blue Ridge.  Mountains are in my heart, and when hearth and home aren’t looking, I slip away and get lost in the woods. A lover of burdock and books, tinctures and teas, I am most at home under a blue sky with my bare feet rooted to the earth.   Adversity brought me to the plants.  A walk through the valley of the shadow of death led me to green pastures, and every green herb.  I began my herbal studies at Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine in Virginia.  My healing path has been pleasant and sweet, sprinkled all along the way with generous, green teachers.  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and He has filled my hands to overflowing with green gifts. Gifts meant to be given to others. Coming to know the plants has changed me profoundly--and blessed me beyond measure.  My prayer is that the same will be true for you.  May we see Him in all that is.  May His life flow through us. Blessings, Amanda Alchemilla HerbRally Podcast
