    Nigel Beach

    Introducing Nigel Beach; a physiotherapist of 18 years and Certified Wim Hof Instructor. Nigel has been studying health for over 2 decades. Being a physiotherapist allows him to articulate Wim's method in an easy to understand way. He has been practising Wim’s method for over 3 years and has had extensive training over those years with Wim himself.  This conversation is wonderful; three friends exploring the Wim Hof Method through Nigel’s own personal journey, the fundamentals of the method, how one can take small steps to implement this into their own life and so much more.  Alongside the Wim Hof method the chat covers mental health, controlled discomfort through extreme temperatures and the use of shakti mats, optimising performance, mindset and breath work.
     
    This chat is sure to have you turning your next shower onto cold. Enjoy!

    Miriam Lancewood

    Miriam Lancewood

    SOUND QUALITY DISCLAIMER: This interview was conducted over skype with a poor internet connection (thank you rural New Zealand).  This does not take away from the fact that the content will have you hooked, we promise!
     
    Introducing to you a very extraordinary woman – Miriam Lancewood.  Nine years ago Miriam and her husband Peter decided to give up all of their worldly belongings and move into the New Zealand wilderness with nothing but a tent and bow and arrow. Together they wanted to learn how to hunt & survive in nature and discover what happens to the mind and body when you take away all comforts and live wildly amongst nature on earth.  They live simply in a tent or hut and survive by hunting wild animals, foraging edible plants and using minimal supplies.
     This quote sums Miriam up perfectly: ‘My life is free, random and spontaneous. This in itself creates enormous energy and clarity in body and mind.’
     This is not an episode to miss.  Art, Matilda & Miriam chat so beautifully about Miriam’s motivations to live in the wild; covering the effects on both the body and the mind.  The conversation covers what life looks like when you live without a clock or technology but instead live by light hours, in silence and with ones thoughts. Miriam talks about the skills she has had to learn and the confidence she has found within because of this.  Inspirational to say the least; Miriam’s story will have you wanting to pack your bags and head bush.

    Dr Tony Fernando

    Dr Tony Fernando

    Dr Tony Fernando; a kaleidoscope of activity and a strong advocate of rest. He is an is an academic, award-winning teacher, cellist, cheap-eats foodie, Buddhist monk and reluctant ocean swimmer. Tony Fernando is a psychiatrist, sleep specialist, senior lecturer in psychological medicine at the University of Auckland, and compassion specialist who was temporarily ordained as a Buddhist monk.
    This conversation is exactly what the doctor ordered for the somewhat crazy busy life we can find ourselves in – the yin to the yang.  Matilda, Art and Tony talk in depth about mindfulness, all things compassion and everything you have always wanted to know about sleep. Oh yeah, and crispy pork.
    Recently Tony started a weekly mindfulness and emotional balance programme for inmates at Mt Eden Corrections Facility in Auckland.  We hear from Dr Fernando on the benefits that have been seen from this programme already.
    Grab yourself a cup of tea, a warm sunny spot on the couch and some peace and quiet to enjoy the chat.

    Matt Ringrose

    Matt Ringrose

    Matt has been meditating for over 10 years, and teaching meditation for six. He estimates he’s taught over 1,200 people this life-changing technique. As an independent teacher of Vedic meditation, and the founder of one of Sydney’s most successful meditation schools, Bondi Meditation Centre, Matt is a guy worth knowing about.
     
    Art and Matilda sit down with Matt in Sydney and enjoy a conversation around meditation and spirituality which is not quite like one you have ever heard before (let’s just say the trio go deep, deep into these topics).  The conversation covers a lot of ground; Matts journey into Vedic mediation and becoming a teacher  (cue living on the side of a volcano in Bali), benefits of a mediation practice,  creativity, living a fulfilling life, the power of intuition over the mind and so much more.
     
    One thing for sure, Matts passion about making this ancient Vedic meditation knowledge accessible, relevant and enjoyable in modern life shines through in this chat!
