Episode #102: Returning the Bones of the Earth with Marysia Miernowska


Marysia Miernowska is a teacher, author, Earth activist, green witch, folk herbalist and healer rooted in the Wise Woman Tradition of Healing. She has spent her life traveling, learning and sharing different regenerative ways of tending to the Earth, healing land, and healing people. She is the Director of the School of the Sacred Wild and author of The Witch’s Herbal Apothecary.

Together, we have conversation about our beloved crystals, particularly how to be with our stones and how to return them to the Earth.

We discuss how the mining industry harms the planet, how to make gem essences, and why rituals for embodied Earth healing are always available to us.

This conversation invites us all into deeper relationship with the Earth, not by collecting crystals to keep for ourselves but by returning them to receive earthly wisdom.

“I don’t know what the spiritual, energetic is of crystals on the planet. But I know that there is no greater and wiser alchemist, healer or designer than the earth. So I deeply trust that if crystals are buried in the earth, they’re there for a reason.”

My book Root & Ritual is now available wherever books are sold!

My intention with this book is for it to be your guide to reconnecting with the earth, your ancestors, and your communities as you come home to your whole self. Despite our best efforts, our modern world leaves so many of us feeling isolated, unworthy, and alone. We’re unrooted from the land, untethered from our lineages, disconnected from our communities, and separated from our deepest sense of self. Root & Ritual is meant to be a pathway back to connection and wholeness through rituals, recipes, and ancestral wisdom.
