Steve is the creator of the Movement Koan Method® and the host of the Guru Viking Podcast.

In this show, Steve and Lian spoke about Masculine and Feminine polarity, the shadow that's present in some modern polarity teachings, how to recognise when wounds need tending instead of plastering polarity work over the top of them, how we might benefit most from polarity work by using it generatively instead of in a reductionist way: the Masculine and Feminine as expansive archetypes rather rigid stereotypes.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • There's been an increasing trend in the personal growth field around teaching polarity, which can be a wonderful thing - and it can reveal deep wounds that we don't benefit from ignoring and blindly doubly down on polarity techniques - I loved Steve's example of when we embark on a new physical exercise which reveals an underlying injury or imbalance that requires addressing
  • Steve referred to the message of the book The True Believer by Eric Hoffer "The power of a doctrine is not in its efficacy as much as it's in its certainty." polarity teachings very much offer that certainty and can be wonderfully expansive and revealing if we enter them as a game or exploration rather than as doctrine
  • Playing with polarity as a lens on life and holding poses to see what they illuminate can be a powerful way of understanding our edges, shadows and possibilities.
  • Lastly, remember that relationships are really about people and no matter the explorations we're in, we can bring love to whatever we do

This week's show is with Rebecca Freeman. Rebecca is a feminine led channel in service to Permission, Magic and Highest Alignment. Using the energetic technology of Human Design, her shamanic gifts and ability to receive visions and messages, Rebecca activates women around the globe into transformative shifts that ripple through time and space.

In this show, Rebecca and Lian spoke about the magic of Human Design, some of the attributes of different types and centres, and finally how there are no "shoulds" rather its permission to play fully as yourself in the world.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Human Design is the Science of Differentiation but I love how Rebecca describes it as a tool of magic that tells you what your own personal flavor of magic is.
  • The five types are Generators, Manifesting Generators, Manifestors, Projectors and Reflectors - each is a description of our specific auric field - what our energy is geared towards, these types work in conjunction with other aspects of our charts.
  • The real take-away for me is that Human Design is permission-giving rather than restricting - it's permission for you to play as you in the world.

This week's show is with Chris Lüttichau. Chris is the founder of Northern Drum Shamanic Centre, a UK-based educational organisation offering a renewed perspective on traditional shamanic and medicine teachings, and a safe grounding from which to learn them established in 1998.

He is the keeper of an integral body of teachings that he shares in workshops and ongoing training groups. The teachings cover a broad range of topics from healing and the art of dreaming to spirit contact and the way of the council. Chris is the author of the critically acclaimed book on shamanism 'Calling Us Home – Find Your Path, Your Balance and Your Inner Strength' published in 2017 and 'Animal Spirit Guides: Discover your Power Animal and the Shamanic Path' published 2009. He is an international teacher, and has appeared on TV on BBC 1, and in Denmark on TV2, and has given radio interviews in the USA, Canada, and the UK.

In this show, Chris and Lian spoke about intuition and clairvoyance from a shamanic perspective. They explored how it's actually a practical tool that's been vital for human wellbeing, even survival, the difference between intuition and instinct, and finally how you can tune into your intuition and make use of it in your life.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Intuition is a practical tool for survival in indigenous cultures and especially for the shamans - it's not a new age-y nice-to-have!
  • The difference between instinct and intuition is that instinct is sourced in the lizard brain - it's focused on the now, whereas intuition is from the soul and is accessed through the heart and 3rd eye. Intuition can be both spontaneous and also something we can proactively choose to listen to
  • Learn how intuition speaks to you, find someone to learn from, buddy up, play with ways to tune into it - for example, asking yourself "What's around the next corner?"
