What is the Path of Wisdom?
The origin of the word wisdom is Old English for "knowledge, learning, & experience", combined with discernment or judgement through understanding. Many of us along the Medicine Path seek to understand ourselves, Nature, and our place in the Universe, which in essence is the Path of Wisdom. Reishi or Ling Zhi has a rich Asian history connected to meditation, the supernatural, and spiritual seeking. These teachings, which incorporate qigong and other esoteric practices, also includes partaking psilocybin that dates back thousands of years.
The practice of working with small to large amounts of herbs or fungi while sustaining a simple diet has been around since the beginning of time as a way to understand the spirit, properties, functions, toxicities, and medicinal uses of the substance imbibed. Various cultures have methods and rituals to accompany the practice of "speaking with plants." In the Amazon, shamans work plants in a "dieta" following strict guidelines in order to hear the plant's Spirit Song and receive healing, then seal the experience with Ayahuasca. A similar process is followed in the Huachuma tradition as well. However, in a soft dieta there are less restrictions for the modern life, and a Master Plant is often microdosed or not taken at all.
The Mushroom of Immortality:
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), also known as língzhī in Chinese is an incredibly old mushroom dating back to the Han Dynastic period (202 BC – 9 AD; 25 AD – 220 AD), when classical medical theory was developed. However, this doesn't mean that people were not working with this divine being before this time, but it is when the stories and properties related to it were recorded.
The first Emperor of China was said to have a Reishi mushroom on the top of his scepter and embroidered into his clothing. There were also many paintings, stories, poems, architecture, and formulas, including the Elixir of Immortality, dedicated to this powerful fungus. Some of its famous properties are:
🌀 General strengthening of the immune system
🌀 Classified as a true adaptogen in herbal medicine
🌀 Complimentary to cancer therapy
🌀 Natural anti-aging & anti-inflammatory properties
🌀 Remedy for sleep, anxiety, heart, and mental issues
🌀 Regulates lipids & cholesterol, aides in weight-loss, and promotes circulation
The Wisdom Archetype
The Wise Crone is one of the oldest stories lived in life and carried through time. Jung referred to her as embodying a person’s “mana” personality, the fundamental spiritual power present within all of us, but the aspect that has gained wisdom through lived experience over time. The Wise Woman Archetype is the end & beginning of the path of initiation, and thus an important step in becoming viewed as an Elder. The Wise Woman has been a part of many indigenous cultures as the visionary or Dreamtime Keeper, the Death Doula, and Wisdom Carrier of the community for help, herbs, magic, guidance and more.
In working with Reishi's power to cultivate patience and neutrality, your innate wisdom surfaces as old patterns resolve themselves. This divine spirit being supports heart opening but with a calming effect, promoting better sleep and deeper visions. Reishi has often been regarded as a Wise Grandmother or Grandfather imparting wisdom in a patient manner, speaking to the receive in lucid or Medicine dreams, clarity, vision, and giving one access to long-forgotten memories.
Working in dieta with this Ancient Being coupled with microdosing allows the messages specific to you to be amplified by this powerful combination. Adding a specific qigong practice to this you will access the Ancestral lineages, realign your nervous system, open your heart, and come into allyship with the Fungi Nations.
Why microdose with psilocybin?
Microdosing is everywhere and for good reason! People experience an increase in focus, creativity, and cognition, a decrease in physical symptoms such as depression, premenstrual issues, and pain, as well as weight loss, and a deeper connection to family, friends, one's life path, and the Universe/Spirit/Great Mystery/God, etc.
While there have not been loads of large scale studies done on women specifically, there has been a number of small studies and self-reported cases revealing that psilocybin helps to regulate the menstrual cycle whether it has stopped altogether, is irregular, or the flow has become excessive. Women have also reported an increase in fertility, a decrease in premenstrual tension, and reduced menopausal symptoms. I have also seen extraordinary results over the decades of treating women with what I like to call "holistic microdosing", combining herbs, supplements, plant medicines, hormone cycling, nutrition, and personal practices for overall well-being.
The evidence of lowered cortisol, increased serotonin, and renewed neuroplasticity is overwhelming positive, pointing towards increased overall well-being! The studies done on cognition, Alzheimer's, and memory reveal that microdosing helps to create new neural pathways, even as we age, alleviating anxiety and depression. While the field is new and expanding with findings all the time, microdosing is a safe and effective way to create healthy changes in your life by becoming familiar with the medicine in small doses, especially if you are on medications or other supplements.
It is important to note that this will be a very small dose that will not disrupt your daily life! You will be cultivating allyship, AND have support through the process as things arise, as well as additional material in PDF format to download. Please feel free to ask any questions!

"When we look within ourselves with psilocybin, we discover that we do not have to look outward toward the futile promise of life that circles distant starts in order to still our cosmic loneliness. We should look within; the paths of the heart lead to nearby universes full of life and affection for humanity." ~ Terrance McKenna

The wisdom and knowledge that Seven has can be felt from the moment you speak to her. As an almost 48 year old woman going through many transformations, both emotionally and physically, I was able to have the support I desired to move forward into growth and allyship with plant medicine.
In our short time together, I have seen epic shifts in so many areas of my life. I was able to cut my pharmaceuticals in half, my sleep improved, my alcohol intake has reduced and is no longer my “go to” to numb out at the end of a difficult day. WOW! So many huge shifts!!

As a medically trained person who is scientifically minded, I am eternally grateful for Seven's wide breadth of knowledge, skill level, and experience. She has a gift for merging modern and ancient wisdom is a way that makes complete sense with practical applications.
My skepticism around plant and fungi medicines as adequate support modalities for perimenopausal symptoms quickly shifted as my sleep and concentration improved. The when she layered herbs and supplements into the mix with expert awareness, my hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings abated. I am deeply grateful for my time with Seven and highly recommend her to everyone.

I just completed my 3-month Holistic Medicine journey with Seven after my initial completion of the Gateway to Light program with her last year. My healing with Seven was exactly that - holistic. The GTL program began to help me heal my emotional, spiritual and energetic bodies, and the personalized medicine hourney allowed me to shift that healing into my physical body.
Seven's knowledge is extensive and empowering. She has given me the best tools to better understand my body and confidently take care of myself in an empowered way. I am very grateful to Seven for helping me feel stronger and more grounded than ever.
