This is an especially helpful and inspiring show if you're currently feeling stuck at one of the stages of The Heroine's Journey and also if you've been curious about what can happen on the path of Waking The Wild!

This week's show is with Dave Burns who is a coach, angel investor, and essayist. With a background in relational work, partnered meditation, mindful business training and classical philosophy, his work today centres around the interplay between ancient wisdom and modern practicality. A very happy husband, he lives in Costa Rica with his wife, in a small town where the jungle meets the sea.

In this show we spoke about personal artistry, how we can bring an energetic of our unique inner embodiment to any practice, how we might discover that, what it feels like. We also spoke about having a personal blueprint and how to distinguish between resistance that shows up with an edge that's aligned for you vs something that's scary but not for you.

This was such a fascinating episode... those of you who have been practising artists, musicians or martial artists will find this particularly interesting but I believe it's incredibly helpful regardless.

This week's show is with Mike Fairclough, Mike has been the Headteacher of West Rise Junior School, in Eastbourne, UK, since 2004. Over the years, Mike has introduced many educational initiatives to the school, which have received national and international acclaim. These include setting up a student run art studio, called “Room 13” and running a school farm, populated by a herd of Asian water buffaloes, honey bees, sheep, ducks and chickens. The school manages 120 acres of marshland, on which the children engage with nature, light fires, learn basic survival skills, go fishing, paddle-boarding and learn beekeeping. The field of Positive psychology and character education underpin the work of the school. Mike is the author of “Playing With Fire” (embracing Risk and Danger in Schools). His second book “Wild Thing” (embracing childhood traits for a happier, more carefree life), is a self-help book for adults and is out later this year.

In this show we spoke about how parents can embrace the philosophy of adventure, risk and play in our own lives and those of our children. And how this can still happen within the current context of the changes brought about by corona virus.

As a parent of school-aged children, I found this such a reassuring and helpful episode. I hope you do too.

This week's show is with Ya’Acov Darling Khan, the author of the best-selling Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart and Shaman – is known for his blend of strength, humility and humour.

Travelling the world to work with groups delivering Movement Medicine, Ya’Acov has spoken to audiences across the globe at some on the most pre-eminent platforms driving the transformation of world culture and sustainability.

Ya’Acov’s message of Shamanism, and a shift from society’s focus on acquisition to reciprocity, is the key to restoring our universal connection and solving our interpersonal and world issues in the process.

His 33-year marriage and partnership with ‘Movement Medicine Woman’ and wife, Susannah, with whom he is Co-Director of The School of Movement medicine and Co-Author of Hay House published Movement Medicine, forms the loving foundation and union for a life dedicated to the transformation of our world.

In this show, Ya’Acov and I explored such gorgeously rich ground and so timely for our current rupture of Corona Virus and the events following the murder of George Floyd. We talked about the invitation these events have created to step into the unknown of the unconscious. The reactivity of our nervous systems and how fear gets in the way of us being able to be open in the enquiry of the unknown, and lastly how we can create the embodied safety to journey into that dark but rich territory.

This was one of my favourite shows... Ya’Acov is one wise and grounded man. This was real medicine for me and I hope for you too.
