Episode 112: The Thing About Balance (and a yoga practice)

By March 28, 2022July 7th, 2023No Comments

I missed a couple of weeks of recording because some personal stuff upset the illusion of balance I had for myself. The thing about balance, especially that work-life balance that is often spoken of, is that it does not exist. Instead, we are merely juggling our obligations or, as I put it in this episode, running from one side of the seesaw to the other trying to keep them both in the air. Sometimes, however, something unexpected but important and urgent lands on one end and you just tumble off. In this episode, I invite you to explore balance, and then let it go, in an equinox inspired yoga practice.

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.
