Welcome to our conversation today! I'm thrilled to introduce our special guest, Laura Giles, LCSW. This conversation was so nourishing, soulful and inspiring. With her vast experience as a modern animist and intuitive person, Laura brings a rich perspective to our discussion.
Growing up in her unique family, Laura inherited a legacy of sensitivity and encountered many magical individuals and situations along the way. From a young age, Laura was exposed to a perspective of mysticism and interconnection in her community, which amplified her curiosity about animism and her understanding of the sacredness in all things.
Her journey led her to visit a Native American reservation, where she gained deeper insights into indigenous spirituality. Later, she discovered the profound beauty of the heart chakra, recognizing its importance in fostering connections. Laura believes that the disconnection prevailing in our world today is a significant problem that needs to be addressed.
