Portrait by  GREY + ELLE .
 

I had such a lovely time chatting with Deborah Hanekamp, Seeress & Founder of Space by Mama Medicine, on today’s episode. Deborah is such a healing presence, and she shared so much great knowledge in this episode about our relationship to healing, how we need to reconnect to the earth and spend more time outside, how to be a more conscious consumer and therefore kinder to the planet, and more.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What is Mama Medicine and what is a medicine reading?

  • How to decide which healers to see and be financially responsible doing so

  • How Deborah defines healing and who needs it

  • The steps Deborah is taking in her own healing journey

  • Deborah’s ethos on food

  • How our physical symptoms are the final expression of our intuitive thoughts

  • How Deborah encourages her daughter’s intuition

  • The lessons Deborah has learned from her daughter

  • The first steps in healing yourself

  • Deborah’s experience closing her first business and what she learned in that journey

  • How to connect more deeply to the earth by being a conscious consumer

  • Deborah’s journey towards working less and setting more boundaries

  • How to determine where you need balance

  • Why Deborah is a fan of confrontation

  • What medicine the world needs, according to Deborah

  • How and why we have gotten so disconnected from the earth as humans

  • The balance of the matriarchy and patriarchy in modern and ancient medicine

All the deets:

  • Connect with Deborah and her work at Mama Medicine where you can book a medicine reading, see her events, and sign up for her magical newsletter (I love it— there are always so many wonderful takeaways!)
