Listen in to the holistic healing journey of my soul sister, Cathy Skipper, and the part yerba mansa played after she received a diagnosis of cervical cancer just one day after moving to a new continent. You’ll also receive access to Cathy’s guided audio journey, a downloadable meditation you experience accompanied by yerba mansa.
Cathy Skipper is an herbalist, aromatherapist, teacher and wounded healer. After living and working in the herbal world in France for 25 years, she came to live in Taos, New Mexico in 2015 where she lives and works with her husband, holistic psychiatrist Dr. Florian Birkmayer. Together, they run a private practice that combines aromas and Jungian analysis. They also have a school called AromaGnosis where they use a powerful combination of aromas, Jungian psychology and personal journeying to help students deepen their relationship with themselves and learn to navigate and understand the power of the unconscious realms.
Listen in for:
► How Cathy was led to yerba mansa
► Why it’s important to incorporate all aspects of the self when you’re healing
► An important consideration for essential oils
I loved spending time with Cathy and I’m excited to share our conversation with you!
By really spending all this time in nature and connecting to the plants… what they taught me was that I needed to know my own signature, not just to understand the plants and their signature and what they know, but I needed to know who I was and my sense of belonging. [Plants] have been my best teachers about what I needed to do to heal myself.
