Podcast Ep. 120: Equinox Ritual for Balance

As I recorded this episode the Sun was just a few hours away from entering Libra and marking the Equinox. The hours of sunlight and darkness are as equal as they are going to be (it isn’t exact at all latitudes) and there is a seasonal transition. Reflecting on the Equinox and the balanced light, I was drawn to offer a meditative ritual for bringing balance to each of the elements as they manifest in your body, mind, and spirit. While the Equinox is a good time to work on balance, you can do this for yourself whenever you would like.

You can find information and the schedule for upcoming virtual Shamanic Reiki Level Two and Master Practitioner trainings, as well as upcoming in person trainings in northern New York, on the Shamanic Reiki Training page.

While you are here, check out the rituals and workshops page. Virtual Wheel of the Year ceremonies are returning this coming Samhain.

When you do, you will have access to patron-only guided shamanic journeys to meet animal helping spirits and read posts about the animals’ symbolism and archetypal energy as well as the natural history and conservation challenges those animal face in their living incarnation. As you work with different animals, you connect more deeply with the natural world and may be inspired to advocate for one of the wild beings you resonate with.

Podcast Ep. 119: Desk Yoga for Keyboard Activists

I have been at my computer more than usual lately, writing and engaging in my own keyboard activism and I find myself relying on my favorite desk yoga movements and poses to combat tired shoulders and neck pain. If you are feeling the tension in your upper back, shoulders, and neck, try this desk yoga sequence during your next screen break.

Podcast Ep. 118: Loving the World Into Balance

Because it was seminary “homework,” I never had the opportunity to deliver an inspirational talk I wrote which I called “Loving the World Into Balance: A Call for Climate Justice.” I was feeling like it needed to be heard, so I recorded it for this episode. May it inspire you to seek the experience of interconnection through divine love.
