My Shamanic Life Podcast

In the My Shamanic Life podcast, I share the practices that keep me grounded and connected as a yoga teacher, a Shamanic Reiki practitioner and teacher, a mentor, and a wildlife rehabilitator and advocate. New episodes are posted weekly and include a 30 minute yoga practice. Listen here or find My Shamanic Life on iTunes or your podcast player of choice.

Podcast Ep 28: Healing With Snake Spirit

When I pulled the Snake Spirit card from Colette Baron-Reid’s Spirit Animal Oracle, I thought of Kundalini and transformation, but Snake’s message in this deck is of healing. I share about some of the healing practices I have been neglecting before leading you through a yoga practice to explore a core-focused approach to Cobra pose, the embodiment of snake energy in yoga. There’s also an invitation to ten days of making gratitude offerings to the Earth, a challenge exclusively for members of the Shamanic Flow Circle.

Podcast Ep 27: Build Up Strength to Open Your Heart

Before I posted this episode, I had to edit out twenty minutes of crying brought on by sharing a heart-opening experience in releasing an orphaned squirrel I had raised as a wildlife rehabilitator. While on the topic of heart opening, the yoga practice builds to a variation of Matsyasana, fish pose, that adds core strengthening to support the emotional vulnerability of the asana. The deck I pulled from this week was Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson.

Podcast Ep 26: Wildlife Rehabilitation, Shamanism and Yoga

The Nightingale card from Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck inspired this episode. To practice speaking my truth and to share more of how I came to be who I am, I tell the story of how a dancing turtle led me to shamanism, which led me to wildlife rehabilitation. The 30-minute gentle yoga practice explores the poses that have been named for animals, and how we might move more like them.
