Below are some of my favorite the podcasts from 2016 and 2017.

Die Wise You die in the matter of your living.  In poetic and soulful language, Stephen Jenkinson speaks of the moral imperative to contemplate and reconcile death as a way to inform how we live, reclaim our ancestral roots, redeem our past, and leave a legacy for those we love.  https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/yogapodcast/episodes/2017-03-17T21_39_32-07_00

Science, Spirituality, and Nature Author, biologist and one of the foremost thought leaders of our time, Rupert Sheldrake speaks about scientific findings that prove Eastern spiritual views that the mind extends beyond the body, that living systems (human, animals, and plants) can communicate non-verbally across space and time, and the power of pilgrimage- both his own annual pilgrimage to Hollyhock, and the practice of pilgrimage which is a part of what he and his sons Merlin and Cosmo will offer  at Hollyhock.  https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/yogapodcast/episodes/2017-03-17T21_39_32-07_00

Trauma, the Brain, and the Body World-renowned trauma expert and author of “The Body Keeps the Score” Bessel Von Der Kolk speaks about introception, the primitive self-proctective parts of the brain, breathing as an effective self-regulatory mechanism and the connection between trauma and illness. Von Der Kork highlights the complex nature of trauma and the underlying thread that effective treatments share the foundation of consciousness of oneself and self-care; treating the body as a precious entity.

Awakening Our Animal Intelligence Cultural ecologist and geo-philosoper David Abram speaks about awakening our sensual ability to see the wind, hear the trees, feel the land, taste the ocean, and touch the spirit embedded in the world around us.  This is a profound and inspiring journey into the intelligence and living presence of all life forms- plants, animals, humans, and living eco-systems. https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/yogapodcast/episodes/2017-03-17T21_41_26-07_00
