Episode 32
Natalia Oganesyan: Good Medicine & the Shadow of Aya

March 1st 2024 • Free First Hour

I have known Natalia Oganesyan for many years and have witnessed her growth as a medicine woman of great depth. In the first hour of our interview she discusses her Armenian heritage, her journey on the plant medicine path, motherhood, the accrued wisdom in aging, her practice, and more. She shares candidly and honestly and I found so much inspiration in her sharing. 
In the second hour Natalia opens up for the first time about her experience with her teacher, an ayahuasca shaman from a long traditional lineage. Here, she shares what is rarely talked about, and that is the psychological hold some shamans have on their students, and the black magic that is used in the process. It's important to know this goes on, especially for those new to this path who are genuinely seeking help and spiritual guidance. With visionary plant and fungi so regaled today, we need to have the full story and that means the dark side too.
