Podcast Ep 48: The Larger Gratitude of Giving

“Two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.” – Edwin Arlington Robinson, American poet

This short episode was recorded in a hotel room while I was visiting family for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Inspired by the upcoming Giving Tuesday, I’m sharing my favorite charitable organizations, most of which are dedicated to wildlife conservation. I make my giving choices based on my values and my dream for the world. What organizations align with your values and vision?

Wildlife rehabilitation and educational outreach:

North Country Wild Care (my regional rehabilitator network)

Adirondack Wildlife Refuge (wildlife rehabilitation and education)

Animal Help Now (connecting the public with wildlife rehabilitators so animals get help fast)

Wildlife and wilderness conservation:

Wolf Conservation Center

Adirondack Council 

Adirondack Land Trust

Wildlands Network (wildlife corridors)

Alongside Wildlife Foundation (research and outreach so we can live alongside wildlife)

Panthera (big cat conservation worldwide)

Rainforest Alliance (preserving rainforest habitat)

World Wildlife Fund

Other changemakers:

Victim’s Voice (giving domestic violence victims a legal voice)

Olympic Mountain EarthWisdom Circle (OMEC) (preserving indigenous wisdom)

Podcast Ep 47: Throat Chakra Yoga

Cards from The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck by Kim Krans have been right on (and challenging me) this week. Before recording, I pulled the Black Egg – the card for the throat Chakra. In the week after losing my voice to a cold, Mercury has gone direct, Spirit has been slamming me with messages, and I am tuning in to my truth and how to express it powerfully. Join me for a throat Chakra opening yoga practice. Grab a thin pillow or folded blanket if you need to pad under your knees.

Podcast Ep 46: Cold Care Yoga with Firefly

After a taking a chance and speaking my truth in a webinar to introduce my newly launched Shamanic Flow Mentorship, I came down with a head cold that left me voiceless the next day. I was still under the weather when I recorded this episode and I’m sharing a very gentle yoga practice that supports you when you are congested and rundown. The Firefly card from Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck inspired some discussion of supporting our flashes of inspiration and self-care when not feeling well. A yoga bolster or folded blanket is recommended for the practice.
