The Biodynamics Now! (BDNow!) Podcast is a weekly discussion with leading thinkers about the relationship between Food and Wellness with an emphasis on how subscribers can grow the most nutritional food possible. Biodynamics Farming was first described by Austrian educator, Rudolf Steiner in 1925 based on his insight that "Nutrition as it is today does not supply the strength necessary for manifesting the spirit in physical life. A bridge can no longer be built from thinking to Will and action. Food plants no longer contain the forces people need for this." In other words, as early as 1924, food in industrial nations no longer carried enough nutrition to develop most people to the full expression of the genetic potential described in their DNA. The conversations on this podcast are an attempt to obtain the knowledge to grow, cook and assimilate foods that will nourish us to the highest level of Wellness and personal expression.

    BD Now! Special Episode 03.3 How the Medical Lectures Inform the Agriculture Lectures

    BD Now! Special Episode 03.3 How the Medical Lectures Inform the Agriculture Lectures

    This is part 3 of the third program with biodynamic agriculture educator, Glen Atkinson. The topic is How Steiner's Medical Lectures inform his Agriculture Lectures. If you are not familiar with Rudolf Steiner and biodynamics or have no motivation as a biodynamic practitioner to gain deep insights into the basic principles of biodynamic agriculture, then there is no reason to listen to this particular lecture series. This is a very heady program. As you will hear, Glen leaves me behind in the first 10 minutes of each segment. This is no reflection on Glen as a teacher. It's the topic, which for me, who, for example, is still traumatized by high school chemistry class, is hard to wrap the mind around ( or is it open the mind to? ) Any, if you are going to slog forward, Glen has provided some PowerPoint style graphics for this topic. They are at the show notes at www.bdnow.org. He has also provided a copy of his paper on Equisetum, which is referenced in the lecture. It will give you a good idea of the concepts in this lecture in practice. The paper is also at the show notes for this episode at bdnow.org Remember, if listening to this podcast brings up any questions, you can ask those questions in the "reply" section of the show notes of this episode. Glen will be directly answering your questions posted there. If you're planning on going this deeply into a biodynamic practice, you owe it to yourself and, frankly, others who will read your question and Glen's response, to take advantage of this opportunity. As always, if you appreciate what we are trying to accomplish with these podcasts on producing food of the highest nutritional quality, please leave a positive comment at the end of the show notes AND PLEASE rate us with maximum stars at iTunes or which ever podcast distributer you use.

    BD Now! Special Episode 02 Glen Atkinson "Who was Rudolf Steiner"

    BD Now! Special Episode 02 Glen Atkinson "Who was Rudolf Steiner"

    Show Notes are at www.bdnow.org
    Our Guest today is New Zealand Astrologer, Gardener, Herbalist, Homeopath and Philosopher - Glen Atkinson, who has developed the agricultural and medical work of Rudolf Steiner into a rational and secular approach of being with nature while staying true to Dr Steiner's energetic indications.
    In this episode Glen discusses Rudolf Steiner's natal chart and aspects of his biography.
    Glen began working with Steiner's indications in 1976 and has made developments in several fields. His innovation and understanding of Steiner have come from recognizing the fundamental similarity between the traditional Astrological world view and Steiner's suggestions. Then, from experimentation and observation, a simple yet innovative theory of manifestation - The Atkinson Conjecture - has become the basis for many practical activities.
    Glen is founder of on-line The Biodynamic College The ONLY college on the planet, where the whole of Dr Steiner’s ‘Agriculture Course’ can be fully understood.

    The Biodynamics Now! Podcast 044 Robin Miller "Healed:Health & Wellness for the 21st Century""

    The Biodynamics Now! Podcast 044 Robin Miller "Healed:Health & Wellness for the 21st Century""

    Show notes for this conversation are at http://www.bdnow.org
    INTEGRATIVE PHYSICIAN DR ROBIN MILLER  is the author, along with Dave Kahn, of "HEALED Health and Wellness for the 21st Century Wisdom, Secrets and Fun from the Leading Edge."
    Integrative medicine uses conventional medicine and natural medicine as needed to heal patients. Dr Miller makes more use of prescription medicine than other healers we've had on Biodynamics NOW! PODCAST but she does it in a personalized way. What makes this 21st century medicine is she is able to use relatively inexpensive genetic testing to tailor effective prescriptions for the individual patient's constitution rather than use powerful drugs in a one-size-fits-all manner, which often promotes side-effects more than it does healing.
    She's also all about bringing fun into healing. In this program she extolls the virtues of coffee, chocolate and ballroom dancing as part of a path of dynamic healing and wellness

Fascinating Crash Course in Biodynamics

I found this podcast while holding the intention of seeking a crash course In Biodynamic Agriculture that would fill in my knowledge gaps to prepare me for the annual North American conference. This podcast delivered!! I enjoyed the initial episodes that I listened to, but the lectures by Glen Atkinson were a fascinating crash course in Biodynamics and Steiner in general. Taking in several hours of Glen’s lectures taught me
more about Biodynamic & Steiner than I’ve been able to understand in 20+ years of being in Waldorf Educational environments as a busy mother of 6 without much time for attending study groups or late night reading. Deeply appreciate the rich material offered within this podcast!

Many Gems

Many fascinating interviews on a wide range of life-enhancing and world-enhancing subjects. The interviews with Dr. Blueme (Vitamin K2) and with Dr. Nasha Winters have enhanced my life and health in a most profound way. Thank you!
