Shawna Cason is a medium, medicine woman, floral designer, brand alchemist, writer, and co-founder of Earth Speak. Shawna has trained in Jazz studies, Shamanic herbalism, design, and as a trauma-informed yoga teacher. She has always been a dreamer, a seeker, and deeply connected to the spiritual realms. Through her business Scentient Botanicals, Shawna creates luxury products to enhance ritualistic lifestyles & whimsical intentional floral arrangements for love ceremonies, editorial shoots, and intimate gatherings.

In this episode, Shawna shares her story and why it took so long for her to feel comfortable and safe to do so. She shares of growing up in a Christian family that denied her exploration of Earth-based spirituality, of magic, and her connection to the Other-World. Shawna speaks openly about her experience of racism and prejudice, of being told she is both too white and too Black. And speaks of the loneliness of her experience of being raised Black, but being white presenting.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The story and path our parents want for us
  • Growing up getting exorcised 
  • Shawna’s early search for answers in the bible
  • Losing a long time best friend after parting ways with Christianity
  • Being raised as a white presenting black woman
  • The privilege of white skin, and educating white folx
  • The difference between clairaudient and clairvoyant 
  • Receiving messages through the throat chakra
  • Reclaiming the self with the word Witch
  • Working energetically with the spirit of Ayahuasca 
  • Shawna’s deep knowing of wanting to work with plants and heal folx 
  • Of not knowing where one fits in the world of herbalism
  • Answering the call
  • The synchronicities that led to the birth of Shawna’s floral arrangement business 
  • How picking flowers connects Shawna to her lineage of farmers 
  • Healing ancestral trauma 
  • And more!
