Summary From Show

On this weeks show we have a very special guest-D’Coda Grannywoman. She is head of the Ozark Herbal Academy, located at FireOmEarth in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Classes are offered on site as well as online. Today D’Coda shares stories with us about following her intuition and making the leap from LA to the innermost vortex of the Ozark Mountains where she lived for a decade unassisted, cultivating herbs and truly living with the rhythm of mother earth. We speak at length about alternative monetary barter systems and how this is in place and working within her community. Her wisdom, humor and storytelling reaches beyond just that of her time in the woods. So much knowledge can be gained by listening to her magical tales of a life well lived and still living it authentically to date. It is a show not to be missed.

D’Coda, Ozark Grannywoman

D’Coda is the last in a line of Ozark Grannywomen (herbal healers). She spent ten years living in an isolated Ozark federal wilderness preserve, the Hurricane Creek Wilderness Preserve. There she lived alone but not alone because she was adopted by the Forest who taught her how to tap in to Nature’s broadband.

A primitive skills school discovered her and for several years, brought students in to learn about edible and medicinal plants. After leaving the wilderness in 2009 she continued to teach plant knowledge to students traveling from nearby states. Weary of the travel they asked her to teach online as well so she started an online herbal school, now known as the Ozark Herbal Academy, located at FireOmEarth in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The Ozark Herbal Academy also offers instruction on its campus.

Herbalism is an energetic holistic tradition that recognizes life style as fundamental element in disease and health.  Known as the “People’s Medicine” herbalists must help ease social and economic pressures that trigger stress and ill health. Thus, she created two community exchanges through the international CES organization to enable students to afford alternative health care, education, and meet daily needs. The international HCC Exchange is open to everyone. The Eureka Stress Busters exchange is a local exchange for residents of Carroll County, Arkansas. Information may be found on the website under Alternative Economy.


Something New Going on with Get Lit!

On occasion we will stay longer after the show for those who would like to participate in further discussion.
“Get Lit” Thursdays 11am-1pm Central Time at CCN

We pretty much speak to what is on the radar around the planet. We gauge our conversations via our own personal and energetic streams of each moment. The topics of conversation around the world are becoming vast and can be overwhelming. Our platform is to help provide “Digestible Bytes” and an opportunity to clear and center with these changing times.


This comical yet brilliant duo, Blue Star Deerwomon and Rebecca Hahn, address just about any issue from a creative and new paradigm consciousness perspective to lighten up, be a spiritual warrior and “GET LIT” in all realms of your life.
This dynamic duo uses their tools of consciousness and movement-theatre background to present in a new and refreshing way. They go deep and they lighten up. This is the intention of the show – to present the issues of today, ask some of the hard questions, share empathy and understanding while finding any reason to laugh and play. Callers gratefully are invited as part of the conversation. Follow us on Facebook:
