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.

If you like this podcast and would like me to keep recording new episodes, please visit my Patreon page and become a patron for as little as one dollar a month. 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.

If you would like to chat about this episode and connect with others who share your love for the wild beings, join the Shamanic Flow Circle group on Facebook and get the free Guide to Getting Real when you sign up for the email newsletter, which is full of moon magic and upcoming virtual events.

Podcast Ep 31: A Yoga Practice for the Turtles

This episode is all about the turtles. I am excited to announce that the podcast has its first Patreon sponsor to help fund equipment needed for wild turtle rehabilitation. I’ll share about how asking for help was a big step into a new way of being for me, and I’ll guide you through a yoga practice into a long-held turtle pose. If you experience knee or hip strain when sitting with the soles of your feet together, please have two yoga blocks, blankets, pillows, or thick books at hand when you unroll your mat.

Gratitude to Mark Piper for the background music.
