    Episode 49: Martina Tadli, natural resourcing

    What is your ‘covid inspired’ nature re-connection story?

    In this week’s #earthconversepodcast, communication coach and facilitator Martina Tadli articulates what many people have experienced in this ‘covid time’..a story of reconnecting with nature. Even those who don’t have easy access to it.  In doing so, she reminds us of the value of small steps of attention and gratitude.  And she gives voice to her collaboration with Catherine Andrews. Together they have created Natural Resourcing to help leaders and professionals thrive at work, through engaging with nature.

    And rather than closing things down, we open things up at the end – where she beautifully shares deeply personal stories of her own nature connection, including of ancestral healing.  And an invitation to try solo time in nature.

    Episode 48: Nando García Ferreiro, experienced beginner

    Episode 48: Nando García Ferreiro, experienced beginner

    To what end?

    Nando has been on an existential inquiry since childhood. Which has led to an ‘obsession of competence’, to prepare for judgement and be in service to others.  A path which has included being the Director of Health and Wellbeing with the European Commission.  And confirmed by the death of his beloved mother, a calling to be of service to dying people and collapsing communities.

    We talk about death and eternity, facing our fears, the 4 power animals and authentic relationships in organisations, praying to the earth, valuing time and credibility, and going beyond the more than human community. And the aspirations of being an elder.

    We end with a little poem and meditation.

    Episode 47: Mirjam Wagner, with yin for life

    Episode 47: Mirjam Wagner, with yin for life

    How are you embracing life?

    Wild wise woman Mirjam Wagner, who is committed to her soul path and in helping others, has just released her book Yin For Life.  We delve into her writing journey “another round of healing”, as itself an example of embracing the yin and the yang.  And resonating deeply with Bill Plotkin (episode 40) she brings her own perspective of wildness being wholeness.  A dancer of light and dark embracing it all, she talks about the vulnerability of the invisible, jumping into the void, being the artist and the butcher, freedom and responsibility of making our choices, female archetypes, and being a ‘lone wolf’ and in a conscious relationship, amongst it all.

    “I wish that we open up to all aspects to which mother nature offers us and which we are made of”.

    And beautifully, she shares her hope for Mallorca. And offers us a body, mind and soul blessing to close our conversation.

    Episode 46: Emilie Janda, with art.body.mind

    What is your intuition intention?

    If you have been tuning into the #earthconversepodcast, you will know that intuition is a key theme.  And in this week’s episode, we have the joy of Emilie Janda, who with her colleague Lena through their beautiful offerings at Art.Body.Mind help people access their intuition.

    “Whether you want to think of it as something mystic or a tool, intuition wants to play with you”. Emilie as a communicator, coach, energy healer and art dealer is playful and pragmatic, with both science and the mystical in her pockets.  And here she talks about knowing, accessing and trusting our intuition. As well as leisure travel in the cosmos, past and future lives,  curiousity and intentionality. And connecting to nature with her heart.

Inspirational

Gentle yet motivating, Penelope invites you to pause and connect to nature.
Her passion and enthusiasm for the natural world and those who inhabit it shines through in each of the episodes.
Inspiring interviews and guidance in how to take even a brief sojourn from our busy lives to stop and appreciate our surroundings and reflect on how nature affects everything we do.
I look forward to each podcast and although I listen generally whilst ‘doing’ regular chores I am encouraged with each one to stop, pause and enjoy nature more often which benefits me and those around me.

The Rhythm of Nature

Only listened to the first episode so far, and really enjoyed it. I love the pondering, and the gentle guidance to contemplate how we are integral with nature. The rhythm of the conversation is also beautifully paced, like the pace and rhythm of nature. And Penny’s voice is very easy, soothing, and of course, interesting to listen to. Congratulations on this very necessary contribution and conversation. Looking forward to future conversations with some of the interesting people you mentioned. 🌿🙏

As a very active person I find it hard not to “do” all the time...
Never allowing myself to be still... the time is now , to stop, be still, contemplate, enjoy nature
Thanks Penny 🙏
