Autonomous Medicine

In this session, we’re going to look at medicines with profound impacts that we don’t ingest or apply - things we can do that shift our health! It turns out that science and tradition tell us that some of the most profound treatments available to us don’t require pills, teas, tinctures, balms or creams.

We’re going to focus the impacts of a few different kinds of innate medicine, and some simple ways to engage with them:

  • Basic breath principles that let us create our own natural breathwork
  • How to safely engage in cold exposure, and why we’d want to
  • Simple techniques for healing our capacity to move freely
  • Fasting to strengthen the immune system, gut health, and mental health
  • Reclaiming the incredible ground slandered as “placebo effect”, and getting a sense of what it can accomplish and what it can’t

We will briefly mention mind work, meditation, rest, forest bathing, and heat exposure (like sauna or sweat lodges), but only in a futile gesture at completeness… obviously there are many more innate healing modalities!

Before we start talking about making and taking medicines, we should look to the simpler, more fundamental medicines we carry inside us. The full session is 4.5 hours long - scroll down for clips.
