The Sacred Symbiosis Between Your Gut Microbiome and Gaia

Broadcast on August 22, 2023
With Karen Wang Diggs
Hosted by Selima Harleston Lust

Nearly 50 years ago, Lynn Margulis and James Lovelock developed the concept of Gaia, in which everything on Earth is connected. Of course, many Indigenous cultures have understood this concept for millennia. In this presentation, Karen Wang Diggs focuses on the incredible diversity of microbes in your gut, how they directly connect you to the sacred energy of nature, and why understanding and honoring this symbiosis can infuse you with the potential for enlightenment.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • A direct link between your gut microbiome, your immunity, and your brain
  • The best way to feed your gut microbiome for optimal health
  • A 5-minute demo showing how to integrate fermented foods to elevate your connection to nature and the sacred
