September Book Club - "Rise Sister Rise"

Rise Sister Rise

~Rebecca Campbell

Rise Sister Rise Book Club
Book Description taken from Amazon

Rise Sister Rise is for the women who agreed at soul level to be here at this stage in history to lead this global shift that the mystics of all of the ages have predicted: the return of the mother and the rise of the feminine. It is essentially a call to arms for women to rise up, tell their truth, and lead.
Most women have spent much of their working lives “making it” in a man’s world, leaning on patriarchal methods of survival in order to succeed, dulling down their intuition, and ignoring the fierce power of their feminine. They have ignored the cycles of the feminine in order to survive in a patriarchal linear system – but now the world has changed.
 
Rise Sister Rise is a transmission that calls the innate feminine wisdom to rise. It is about healing the insecurities, the fears, and the inherited patterns that stop women trusting the Shakti (power) and wisdom (intuition) that effortlessly flows through them. It's about recognizing all of the ways we have been keeping ourselves contained and restrained in effort to fit into a certain archetype of woman. It’s about co-creating a whole new archetype of woman – a woman who does not keep herself small in order to make others feel more comfortable. A woman who knows like she knows like she knows that she is not her body weight, her sexual partners, or her career. A woman who deeply respects the wise woman in her life and cultivates her own wisdom every single day.
 
Full of tools, calls to action, contemplative questions, rituals, and confrontational exercises, this book teaches women that it is safe to let Shakti rise, safe to trust their intuition, and safe to take leaps of faith – because in healing ourselves we are healing the world.

 

I am delighted to present this book as the subject for our next book club.  I will be teaming up with Life Coach and Mindfulness Guide, Julie Hartman, here at the shop.  We will be leading an open book discussion.

You can purchase the book in my shop, Tangled Roots Herbal, at a special discounted price, or through your favorite book seller.

I strongly encourage you to read this book and join us for the book club discussion.  It is sure to be an entertaining, enlightening and uplifting evening.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing messages with you from your loved ones, confirming that our Souls do live on!

MY STORY…

People always ask where I studied, how I learned what I know and how I became an herbalist. It wasn’t until I had been practicing as an herbalist for several years that I began to piece together my entire story. On the first day of class in my herbal apprenticeship program, when we introduce ourselves, this is the story I tell my students – I can’t help but start at the beginning; everything seems to count.

I grew up in a small town in Western Massachusetts. My most vivid childhood memories are of being outside. I used to hang out with my dad while he cut, split and stacked cordwood for the winter. I remember the simple satisfaction that I got from staring up at the trees, making things out of snow and playing in the leaves. I remember crawling on my hands and knees beneath the mountain laurel looking for treasures and special places. Tree stumps, gnarly branches, big rocks and jackpots of mushrooms or cool-looking leaves were the highlight of any afternoon. I thought everything was special – every part of the natural world was a treasure, and I was constantly in a state of admiration.

My step grandmother was very ill for most of my childhood. She had been told many times by many doctors that she was going to die. In her quest to live, she became a self-made scholar of the body, natural medicine and alternative therapies. Getting better was her life, and I was fascinated to listen. Her stories were my first introduction to anatomy and physiology as well as many vitamins, minerals, algaes, herbs and the pendulum. Sometimes, when I think about health and the body, I can still hear her voice in my head.

I had other mentors too. The mother of my younger brother’s best friend, Jean Bergstrom, spent many years studying herbal medicine with Kate Gilday. Jean later went on to become a practitioner of plant spirit medicine; she used to practice doing pulse diagnosis on me at soccer games. Jean was the first to teach me how to identify plants (I especially remember the poison ivy lesson!), and I took my first herbal class with her when I was 13.

I fell in love with the kitchen in the later years of elementary school, when I remember rushing through my homework so that I could help my mom cook dinner. In the kitchen, she taught me what she knew and gave me a great sense of comfort in moving around the space and making food appear. Later, while attending college at UC Berkeley, I lived in a large co-op where I cooked for two years in an industrial kitchen. During my years at the co-op I would make dinners and lunches for 100 or more of my “housemates” at a time! It was here in Northern California that I began to formally study Herbal medicine with Kami McBride – traveling to the dessert, mountains, coastal hills and river valleys to learn the patterns and actions of native, naturalized and cultivated plants and their amazing healing gifts. During these years, while I was still receiving the tail end of my college education, I reconnected with the plant world of my childhood, enriching and deepening my love for the smells and sounds (and of course the magic!) of the natural world.

It didn’t take long for my passion for herbal medicine to meet my busy hands in the kitchen. I began to cook medicinally, using herbs and spices that were appropriate for the occasion, the season and the food. The powers of not just herbs and spices, but grains, nuts, vegetables, fruits, meats and all other ingredients began to appear to me. Through these experiences I gained a deep respect for the adage, food is our medicine. After graduating from college I dove head first into the world of food, volunteering and apprenticing at local kitchens and restaurants and experimenting in my own kitchen. I spent time learning about nutrition in addition to cultural food preparation and cultivation rituals from around the world. I was, and still am, interested in how the simplicity of increasing intention and awareness around food and our relationship to it can promote wellbeing and stimulate the kind of self-respect that fuels and empowers health and healing. I always tell my students that it was applying herbal medicine in the kitchen that gave me my first clinical experience – as I cooked for myself and others I observed how food and our relationship to it could nourish, nurture and heal. A kitchen witch is no joke!

Thyme Herbal was born in the spring of 2008 while I was living in Oakland California. For the first year, I mostly taught cooking classes with an herbal emphasis and did some private cooking for families in the Bay Area. A year later I moved back to Western Massachusetts where I intensified my study of Ayurveda and Western Herbalism and began to study Chinese Medicine. I now have a private herbal practice and an herbal education center (Thyme Herbal) at my homestead in Conway, Massachusetts. While I don’t do private cooking anymore, my work with food, nutrition and dietary applications of herbal medicine is still a central part of my clinical practice and my teaching approach.

Herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine practiced on the planet, and it has been largely practiced as an art form – learned through observation and experience and passed down from one person to another. It is this history of herbal medicine in practice that most clearly illustrates my vision for herbalism in our country today. Herbal medicine doesn’t belong to doctors or herbalists or authors, it belongs to everyone. I work in service to the vision that our society as groups of individuals and communities deserves to hold the wisdom, knowledge and self-empowerment necessary to practice herbal medicine every day in our own homes.

In the same way that I believe everything about the food we eat informs its nutritional quality – including where it is grown, how it is harvested, how it is prepared and how it is enjoyed – I also believe that all layers of life, all forms of doing, being, thinking and feeling, inform our state of health and wellbeing. With this lens, I can expand the idea that “food is our medicine.” Food is representative of all that we ingest, absorb and let go of. In this spirit a hug can be as nutritious as a bowl of greens and the preparation, intention and love behind a medicine is as important as the medicine itself.

Vibrational Drum Healing - Jamie "Sitting Hawk Woman"

Vibrational Drum Healing - Jamie "Sitting Hawk Woman"

Our bodies vibrate at a certain frequency. Vibration has an amazing effect on our bodies, minds and spirits. Sometimes our vibration is not in alignment with our frequency and this causes us to feel uneasy, scattered, unfocused, spiritually out of balance, etc. And we don’t really understand what is going on. We just know that we do not feel like ourselves and we don’t like this uncomfortable feeling. As we bring the vibration back into alignment with our personal frequency we can do many things such as; heal ourselves from illness or diseases, increase the function of our immune system, reduce stress, release stagnant energy, and bring about calmness and deep relaxation. 

During a Vibrational Drum Healing we will sit together to discuss what you wish to accomplish during the session. We will begin with calling in our ancestors and guides to assist us in this work. After which I will create a vibration orb around your body by use of a Native American frame drum or rattle. I will focus on the areas we discussed, on areas that feel out of alignmentand then move around your body according to how Spirit guides me. During this time you will be able to release those energies that are causing discomfort and that no longer are serving your highest good, thusly enabling you hold focus and intent. 

The heartbeat of the drum allows us to hold focus and intentionand helps to visualize as we ride the vibration of the drum into the deep center of ourselves. When we are able to do this our lives shift and change miraculously. We once again feel connected, not only to ourselves, but to those around us, to Mother Nature and our surroundings as a whole. We feel balanced and in-tune. Come join me to see how the simple vibration from a drum can create this in your life. 

Rates: $97 per hour – typical session lasts an hour

*Must schedule an appointment ahead of time.  Payment must be made in full.  No refunds.     To schedule a Healing please call the store (603) 864-8578.
