A weekly podcast for everyone who is interested in the body as more than just a brain-taxi. The podcast contains in-depth explorations of embodied topics, and hosts guests from around the world. Speakers have expertise in diverse embodied areas from yoga, to martial arts, to body therapy, to dance, to theatre, to bodywork. The podcast is also full of practical tips and experiential exercises. It can sometimes be a bit cheeky and contains swearing so bear that in mind. With Mark Walsh of The Embodied Facilitator Course (http://embodiedfacilitator.com) and Embodied Yoga Principles (https://www.embodiedyogaprinciples.com).
Continuum - With Donnalea Van Vleet Goelz
Continuum Movement teacher Donnalea joins me to discuss Emilie Conrad, Haiti, fluidity, form vs freedom, practises, pleasure, “sounding”, online vs in-person, Stephen Porges, the passing of founders, the politics of the body, and cultural appropriation. A succulent feast of somatic exploration.
Reversed embodiment - With Alexander Bard
Public intellectual and philosopher Alexander joins me to discuss the music industry, “fuck off money”, technology as god, syntheism, Zoroastrianism, Freddy Mercury, Scandinavia, why we’re not just logos, language, the internet revolution, America and empire, sex and gender, “tonality”, and more! A wide-ranging deep one.
COVID Isolation Syndrome - With Adam Barley and Guy Sengstock
Conscious dance teacher A’dam Barley and Circling Founder Guy join me to discuss the COVID lockdown and unmet needs. We discuss health, co-regulation, trauma, Zoom vs in-person, isolation, risk, online intimacy, movement, novelty, holistic health, NVC, and grieving. We end with some helpful somatic practices to reduce CIS. A really important and slightly risky conversation that needs having now.

Mark's story. Experimenting, connecting and finding purpose, passion and learning to make a living from it. Unscripted, unrehearsed real life story - with Mark Walsh from Purpose Black Belt.
Men, masks, emotions - With Ashanti Branch
Founder of youth development worker Ever Forward Ashanti joins me to discuss growing up without men, “more money more problems”, school and social issues, not having a language to get help, anger, boys and crying, the COVID pressure cooker, “behind the mask”, being “fully known”, being scary as a guy, validation, being assaulted and more. A touching and deeply important one.
Finding & Selling Purpose - With John Williams
Author of F**k Work Let’s Play John joins me to discuss the search for meaning, doing what you love for a living, passion, blocks to purpose, value creation, misunderstandings, the nature of play, niching, pricing, how much to “be yourself”, online courses, the importance of 1-1 work, problem-solving, empathy, and noticing what’s working. A super useful practical one.
