Podcast Ep. 108: The Turtle (Yoga) Episode

It has been a while since I shared about my journey into wildlife rehabilitation and why I work with turtles. The story I tell was originally written for and shared with my interfaith seminary class last year. Then, you will be guided in a short, gentle yoga practice culminating in a long-held turtle yoga pose.

Registration is open for Shamanic Reiki Level Two virtual training on March 5 and 6, 2022. You can get more information and register on my training page.

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. 107: Practicing Love

Before I recorded this episode, I sat outside for meditation, as I do daily, watched the squirrels, and contemplated love. The squirrels have been flirting with each other of late, but the love I was thinking of was not the romantic kind, but the deeper, divine love at the center of our beings – yours, mine, the squirrels’, and all beings’. The practice offered is my twist on Metta, or the practice of loving kindness. You can sit for meditation anywhere you are comfortable.

Podcast Ep. 106: Yoga for a Warrior’s Heart

The yoga practice sequence in this episode, which I’m calling “Yoga for a Warrior’s Heart,” came out of a moment when I was demonstrating Warrior II for a virtual client and remembered one of Will Keepin’s principles of spiritual leadership. The principle is that love creates the form, just like an open heart creates the alignment in Warrior II. I will guide you through it so you can cultivate your own warrior’s heart.
