Community Challenge: Let's Get to Know Each Other!

About a year ago, we used to do a '5 question' interview with Natural Medicine members. It was a great way to get to know one another! This challenge has the same spirit - to encourage us to get to know one another and engage in the community, both on HIVE and in Natural Medicine. All you need to do is choose 5 questions from the 31 below, and write. Whether it's astrology, alchemy, herbalism, meditation or anything that helps you heal body, mind and soul - or that keeps you true to your path, you can write about it!


The questions below are from people within the Natural Medicine community, posed by @ganjafarmer, @lafe, @pavanjr, @drrune, @vicvperezdelara and @minismallholding - all who are set a beneficiary on this post.

You must answer FIVE of these questions. You can do more than one post (eg one question per post, or two posts with five questions each, or any variation that you think fits) but choose 5 to respond to.

  1. How did your journey in this path/with this practice began?
  2. How have you adapted this practice to your life?
  3. What do you think has been your most important learning during your process?
  4. Share some thoughts on how this path/practice could be beneficial for the community
  5. What would be your main recommendations for someone starting on this path/practice?
  6. What happened in your life that make you think "i HAVE to change my pattern" - what was that point of break?

  8. how you feel today with the changes? you look back and you feel you have changed or you feel the same? are you satisfied by your changes?
  9. what kind of practices conform your healing path and help you with the process? (yoga, herbalism, tarot, meditation, gardening, etc)
  10. What are your new mechanisms to avoid the old pattern? - like new thinking systems or new beliefs?
  11. do you think that taking marihuana in a recreational fashion counts as a natural treatment?
  12. do you think this boom of the natural is just another trend or is society really starting to wake up?
  13. Why isn't all medicine natural if everything comes from nature?
  14. Would you take ancestral medicine (yagé, kambo, yopo... ) with a non native person as your guide?
  15. Have you had trouble with any member of your family for having chose the path of natural medicine?
  16. Which are you most loved plants at home?
  17. Do you use natural medicine more than pharmaceutical medicine or do you have a balance?

Greetings to the @naturalmedicine community. Here I send you the receipt of the 100 Lotus for my participation in the challenge. Thanks to @alchemage for his infinite patience, and to @ auelitairene, @ riverflows, @drrune, for being so kind to me trying to help me by all means, I love you all.


For some reason, i'm La Fe in Discord, but my real artistic name, whose link will take you to an actual profile, is @lafeedekalarka XD

Nice contest!!! I hope the inspiration will come to participate


I like this challenge 😍

Cool initiative, I will try and take part sometime very soon.

I'm still confused about the challenges and I'm not sure I got everything right but I know I haven't partaken in many and this one I really wanted to write an entry for. I could probably write a couple of more for the same challenge, so much came up but I didn't want to write a too-long post.

And a screenshot of the Lotus transfer:

I love these kinds of questions because it makes you think deeply about your choices and your current life. In my particular case, I will choose 5 questions, the ones that I consider best suit me, and I will answer them. A big hug.

Can't wait!

Wow! Each one of these questions deserves a post of its own! Can't wait to write something :D

There is a lot to do here, I think this is good to keep growing in quantity and quality of items within the community. Besides these questions are ideas for us, having more things to write about is an impulse. I've chosen my 5 questions, now let's work on them. Thank you for this challenge, hopefully more people will join us. :D

Excited about your response!!

That's right, I'm already on it and I'll publish it today.

One question, when I send my LOTUS to @null should I put a description or not?

NOthing in description, no problem.

Lovely way to get to know those in our community better! Looking forward to reading the responses!
Here is my response to 5 of the questions and @zord189 's "Happiness Mantra" contest at:

That's so cool you did both!

Got it!! Great! Well done for persevering, trying to understand the rules! We loved your story.
