Have you been feeling heavy with all the intensity going on in the world today? Good news! That’s what we’ll help you with on this week’s episode with Lily Zepeda, where you’ll receive a big fat injection of laughter, joy, and deeply healing, rooted humour.

Lily Zepeda is a certified trauma-informed yoga instructor & Plant Medicine Integration specialist with over 10 years of experience leading workshops, retreats and working with Master Coaches. She combines her training at the Ecology of Shamanism school with her experience in inner-child work, Somatics and Polyvagal Theory Foundations. Lily specializes in helping others to inner-stand their bodies, nervous system regulation and sacred medicine healing journeys. She believes that plant medicine’s profound healing experiences do not end with the ceremony, and her integration coaching allows clients to unify the visions, messages, and epiphanies from the experience into their day-to-day life.
