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 42: Loyalty and Down Dog

Deeply explore Yoga’s Downward-Facing Dog pose in a practice inspired by the Dog Spirit card from Colette Baron-Reid’s The Spirit Animal Oracle. The card’s message is to be loyal to what you love, but also consider what you need to let go so you have room to grow. Just like the notion that your heels must reach the floor in Down Dog (hint: they don’t), what are you holding onto because you’ve always done in that way? Where is your loyalty wasted on what doesn’t serve you?

This episode’s cover image is a tribute to my very loyal dog Laci, who passed away in July and is missed every day. Much gratitude to Blair Sutherland for the beautiful intro and background music.

Podcast Ep 41: Restore Yourself to Go Against the Flow

From reflection inspired by Nuthatch in Maia Toll’s The Illustrated Bestiary, this episode touches on our reactions to Greta Thunberg’s activism and our own desire (or aversion) to joining the front line of direct action. The gentle yoga practice gets your legs up the wall to restore your energy and invites you to look at challenges from another direction, like a nuthatch.

When you feel restored and are ready to get back into it, you’ll find the Earth-based Spirituality Action Team of the Citizens Climate Lobby here.

Podcast Ep 40: Journey with Wolf Spirit

I drew Gray Wolf from the deck that came with Maia Toll’s newly released The Illustrated Bestiary. The message to “nurture connections” led me to both wildlife corridors and our Shamanic Flow Circle group on Facebook, of which I hope you are a part. What do you desire to do to better the world? Join us for support! Then settle in for a guided shamanic shapeshifting journey with the spirit of Wolf.
