Lauren Ivy interviews Meghan Rhodes on The Open to Alchemy Podcast
I've recently had a really interesting conversation about this with Lauren Ivy of the Open to Alchemy podcast. 

The episode - Ancient Herbs for Modern Wisdom - has been released on Spotify and Apple podcasts.

In it, we talk about: 
  • Decoding the 7 key tastes of herbs and what cascade of events they trigger in our bodies (whether we're consciously aware of it or not!)
  • The reality of tuning into the rest of nature and the seasons whilst living hectic lives
  • Some of my top tips for starting to explore and integrate herbalism into  your life even if you don't have tonnes of time or resources
  • How to cut through the overwhelm of working with herbs to support your health
  • And I reveal a little-known secret about my gardening skills!

Open to Alchemy is an absolute treasure of a podcast with conversations I personally enjoy listening to that feel like you're having a brilliant cuppa and a really interesting chat through lots of fascinating nooks and crannies of spirituality, the complex and changing world we live in, and - as the host Lauren Ivy says - 'part woo, part work'. Lauren's based in the US, but you can follow her insights and offerings at on Instagram. If you enjoy the episode, please do support her by giving her podcast 5 stars on Spotify or leave her a lovely review on Apple podcasts, and be sure to follow if you want to hear more of her conversations with fascinating people.

I do hope our conversation sparks new questions and areas of exploration for you!
