The Beauty Way

Carole Guyett is a medical herbalist and medicine woman who blends her knowledge of the Celtic tradition with the teachings of ***The Beauty Way. 

From her healing centre in Ireland Carole is dedicated to bringing the gifts of the plant world to others, and in recent years she has been doing this while her husband was being treated for cancer.

In this podcast Carole talks about the wisdom she has found in her husbands illness, we also discuss her plant spirit healing work and her dedication to The Beauty Way.

***The Beauty Way is derived from Hózhó, the Navajo word for the concept of living in a holistic environment of Beauty, Balance, Harmony, and Well-Being. 

Podcast Update

After recording this podcast Carole contacted to say how well Steve is currently doing and is so thankful for all the support they have both had from everyone and everything around them, including of course all the plants.

My stand out quote from this podcast:

‘There are just so many lovely aspects to The Beauty Way and the whole concept of walking in beauty and how every footstep you leave on this earth is one of beauty … and just acknowledging the beauty in everything helps us come to a place of gratitude, and gratitude is what opens the heart, and by opening our hearts we really move towards unity consciousness and the next world of peace.’ – Carole Guyett

The Creativity

Are you someone who longs to express yourself creatively but perhaps you worry about not being talented enough, not being able to support yourself financially or what people will think of you if you choose a life less ordinary?

In this month’s podcast I speak to singer/songwriter Anna Krantz about the challenges she has found in putting her creativity proudly out into the world and the wisdom she has found by doing so.

Anna talks about working with people like Ed Sheeran, having her music recorded by Cliff Richard and we also discuss how she accesses her creativity and what she does when that sacred connection isn’t there …

(The ultimate inspiration probably comes at the end of this podcast though when we play one of Anna’s amazing songs.)
