“How can I make my actions more congruent with pure service?”

As the desecration of Mother Earth continues, what can well-intentioned men do? Why is humanity at large acting this way? Understanding WHY is huge, as it stems from our relationship with and balance of masculine and feminine energies. We address these questions in this heavy hitting conversation with Chief Phillip Scott, who leads pilgrimages, conducts ceremonies, teaches healing courses, and runs a private healing practice. His Indigenous perspective offers hope and understanding in these overwhelming times. We also cover why the colonial model is failing humanity, how sacraments differ from psychedelics, and why Tortoise medicine is needed even in these urgent times.
