I am thrilled to bring you this conversation about reishi mushrooms with Asia Suler. In this interview, Asia shares reishi through a beautiful lens. If you aren't already welcoming reishi into your life, her sharing will probably inspire you to do so.
As you’ll see, I just finished reading her book, Mirrors in the Earth, which I absolutely loved and highly recommend.
Don’t miss out on getting a free printable recipe card for Asia’s super-yummy and medicinal Reishi Maple Truffles! (You’ll find the link in the “Links” section, further down in this description.)
By the end of this episode, you’ll know:
► What makes reishi so unique in the way it supports our immune system
► How nature connection can be so powerfully healing
► Why you shouldn’t buy *whole* dried reishi
Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation:
“Even when a tree fell, that wasn't the end of life in that part of the forest. New flowers came forth, new saplings could spring up. I thought, ‘Well, if nature can heal anything, then so can I.’”
For those of you who don't already know Asia, she is a writer, teacher, herbalist and earth intuitive who lives in the folds of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Asia is the founder of One Willow Apothecaries, an Appalachian-grown company that offers handcrafted herbal medicines and educational experiences in herbalism, animism, ancestral healing and earth-centered personal growth.
