“And we’re prisoners of our own Western science; indigenous people have long known that plants will communicate with each other.” Suzanne Simard
My education was conventional and I took a science degree in psychology which eventually led to working in academic research and research support at universities in London and Liverpool. I found this challenging but essentially unfulfilling.
Some time later, and seeking a complete change, I decided to take a vocational course in reflexology – still thinking as a scientist that it must “work” through some complex interaction that could be explained by biology alone. Instead – and thankfully – I began to learn and experience so much that our Western science has not yet explained or caught up with, and eventually was led to possibly the most ancient of all practices – shamanism. To not just practice but to live shamanically reconnects me as my authentic self within the web of life.
