Working intentionally with plant medicine as a way to connect with your body can be a powerful tool for healing.
Since doing macro doses and large journeys can be quite a process and commitment. Working with plant medicine on a more subtle level is potentially a more sustainable way.
Microdosing can be done with your medicine of choice, and you can play around with dosage to find one that works right for you. Remember, each day your body is different, and sometimes it can react in a different way even with the same dose.
A beautiful way of working with plant medicine is really connecting initially with the spirit of the plant you are working with, and asking it to support you on your healing journey. By having an intention with the plant, you fortify your connection, and thus potentially amplify your healing.
Plant medicine has a magical way of bringing up sensations in the body that otherwise we may ignore or numb out. Using plant medicine as an ally to help you connect deeper with your body can be a powerful tool.

The more you can listen to your body and move with the seasons, the more natural your winter may feel. Nurture your nature and move with nature.
Some ideas for the colder months:
Drink warm beverages
Get more sleep
Create a routine
Eat nourishing meals with seasonal vegetables
Make sure to make time to connect with friends
Enjoy daylight hours when you can
Find hobbies that don't involve as much screen use
Be patient with yourself
Make sure to continue to connect with nature
Plant seeds for what you want to blossom in the spring time

Once your attention moves to a specific area, you're able to explore different sensations, images, behaviours, feelings, and meanings.
Working with a somatic therapist enables you to start to connect deeper with your body, and release unprocessed occurrences from your past.
It is a profound tool in trauma healing, and helps to promote great change in the being.
