#34 - Back To Nature with Aimee Thomas

June 12, 2018

Keeping in touch with nature seems easy enough- take a walk outside, admire the stars at night, wake up and enjoy sunrise yoga. So why do so many of us disregard the enjoyment our planet provides. Taking care of and nourishing our Earth is the best way to manage and continue our relationship.

Have you ever heard of Nature deficit disorder?

Our guest today is Aimée Thomas a Professor of Biological Sciences at Loyola University in New Orleans. We discuss spiders, Natural History, the Galápagos Island and getting in touch with nature. Aimée has spent the past year exploring the flora and fauna within New Orleans City Park which covers over 1,300 acres. She also talks about how she learned to have a relationship with the outside from a young age.

We also discuss the importance of yoga and the latest Golden Sunrise Retreat. Our connection to our mind, body and spirit healing is conveyed through yoga and is the totality of everything in nature. Our relationship with the world around us is important. Getting your mind right and you may become healthier with nature.

In this show we will answer a few questions, such as: Why is grounding necessary? Why do we need to take care of and pay attention to our environment? How can your imagination help you become interest in Science? How is Global Warming affecting us? What is EMF?

#33 - We All Need Connection with Denise Milfort

May 24, 2018

Navigating the dating world and relationships in general is difficult.

When you mix dating apps, other people’s opinions, your own expectations and anxieties it can be downright exhausting.

Loving, nourishing and investing in yourself is the best way to find a connection within and with others.  

At the end of the day everyone wants to be connected; have you ever thought about what it takes to find that connection?

Our guest today is two-time guest Denise Milfort; an actress from Port au Prince, Haiti, now residing in California. We discuss love, life, friendships, marriage and dating. There are many reservations when you put something out into the world- you must think will my frequency and response be the same next year? Five years from now? Ten years?

You must be open to change in your relationships.

Relationships can succeed when you set expectations, are true to yourself and are your own beloved. If you are alone and want connection or to erase boredom/loneliness- you need to get out and make the effort. We must all find the balance. A great psychologist to gain information from is Pat Allen she works with masculine and feminine energy in relationships and life. Learning fluidity in relationships.

In this show we will answer a few questions sent in from listeners.

Borderline abusive relationship what is my perspective? How to deal when someone completely rejects you? And, what’s your perspective on dating apps; feels like I am disposable and exhausted from everything?

#32 - The Water Magister: Astral Travel with David Rodriguez

April 27, 2018

There are many things that we should be doing to maintain a happy and healthy life. Knowing our self-worth, believing in healing power, and surrendering or letting go of issues we cannot change are a few. Our guest explains how obtaining these can lead you to an enlightened life.

Do you know that you alone can be the ultimate healer of your own body?

We have two guests today. First is Nicole, manager at the Space and Raw Republic. Our main guest is David Andrew Rodriguez, also known as the Water Magister. Nicole went to the Okeechobee fest in Florida this March and took an astral travel class with David. She explains the feelings and thoughts through this session.

David is a teacher of meditation, Ashtanga yoga, astral-projection, ritual, sigil magic and more. He also just published a book titled, “The Water Magister’s: Self-Discovery” which consists of his journey through journaling, “sponge-mode” and meditation to heal depression. David also tells us how poetry, channelings and using free-spoken word gave him a deeper understanding of his battle.

Learn about the importance of setting intentions. Also, how the power to manifest can bring you and your partner together. Why travelling through an out of body experience may be the means to acknowledge the shadow within ourselves and know what we need to protect ourselves from.

April 22, 2018

Everything has an energy field; all beings from humans to crystals. Many of us have busy lives with many stressors - we learn how crystals can draw from past experiences to help us in future situations.

#25 - Keep The Fire Burning with Angela Kukhahn

February 6, 2018

Angela Kukhahn joins Nathalie for a discussion all about yoga! Yoga lovers, especially teachers, will not want to miss this one. Nathalie and Angela talk about being a yoga teacher, tools and techniques developed along the way, and more.

As yogis and yoga teachers, we’re always growing and evolving. Our views on what was right at one point in time can easily change, and often do, over the years.

Angela shares what inspires her to inspire others while teaching and how to address the individual in a group setting.

We hear about the use of props like blocks, belts, and blankets. Props bring many benefits, although some people have concerns about their use. Is it right to want to stick with some yoga traditions from the past, or is it okay to evolve and accept the use of props?

Social media provides great opportunities to connect and share information. Angela tells us about the growth of her Instagram account to over 80,000 followers, the dedication involved with running such an account, and even how to deal with periodic negative comments.

Everybody is on their own spiritual journey, as yoga teachers, we can only share our own experiences and aim to create the best scenario possible for students to experience their own journey.
