    Celtic Spirituality, Dispelling the New Age Myth of “Love & Light,” with Matthew McRoberts

    Celtic Spirituality, Dispelling the New Age Myth of “Love & Light,” with Matthew McRoberts

    This podcast episode is a  delightful conversation I had with a Celtic Druid named Matthew McRoberts here in Boulder, Colorado.

    About Matthew...

    Matthew comes from Ireland and is ordained as both a Celtic Pagan and Celtic Christian priest, as well as in the Grail Bloodline tradition. He is a treasure trove of knowledge and wisdom about Celtic spirituality. We shared a lovely recorded conversation together in his flat and then we met up with my partner for a tea ceremony downtown Boulder.

    It’s my first recorded conversation live from the road, something I’ve been planning to do since we started our RV trip. I’m looking forward to bringing you more of these conversations from incredible people I meet along the path.

    An Experience of Celtic Spirituality...

    Matthew shares some of the tenets of Celtic Spirituality and how closely they are related to Hindu and American Indian pantheons.

    He illuminates a few Celtic legends and Bible stories, like the Prodigal Son, interpreting them from a Sophionic (feminine/wisdom) perspective rather than the traditional Soteriological perspective (salvation based). He also shares some of own incredible story being born in Northern Ireland as part of the warrior culture there.

    The Legend of the Morigan...

    I initially called Matthew because I’d been having visions of The Morigan, the dark priestess of Celtic Spirituality who is often depicted with a crow. I reached out to him because he runs a Celtic Christian and Pagan ministry here in Boulder and he mentioned the Morigan in his opening description.  In the podcast he shares the origin story of the Morigan sisters and the significance her archetype can have for our journey into the darkness within.

    About Matthew

    Matthew McRoberts (baptised Máta Áltheséir Mac Connachíe) is a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Born to American parents, he first came to the United States at age nine. He spent his first two years in Brooklyn, New York, and then moved with his family to Minnesota where he would spend his remaining teenage years. After a deployment with the US Army in Afghanistan, he spent time travelling the world, seeing much of South America, North Africa, Western and Southern Europe, and portions of the Middle East. Three years ago, he came to Colorado (on a greyhound) to start a new life on the front range. He's been attending Naropa University for his first Bachelor's degree since.

    In his adult life, much of his education, training, and spiritual focus has bounced back and forth between multiple traditions. In the last year since winning a lifelong battle with substance abuse and alcoholism, he has shifted his focus onto a subject that has long been dear to his heart, and never far from his mind, Celtic (specifically, Irish) Spirituality. Both Christianity and Paganism. He is an ordained Druid, and additionally holds ordination with two other traditions, a Celtic Christian, and Grail Bloodline tradition.

    Part 1: After the Exhale, Learning to Be Gentle with Ourselves in Transition, with Andrea Ciafardini

    Part 1: After the Exhale, Learning to Be Gentle with Ourselves in Transition, with Andrea Ciafardini

    Andrea and I have a beautiful conversation about listening deeply so that we can be in the midst of the great transitions and transformations of our lives with more gentleness, tenderness, and joy. Listening to her is like a meditation in itself.

    We talk about letting go of perfectionism and control and surrendering into the tenderness and aliveness of truly living.

    I feel privileged to get to share Andrea’s perspective with you because she was the first healer I ever knew, and she helped lay the foundations for some of the most radical transformations and blessings of my life.

    I also share the story of my own healing journey through my debilitating anxiety during graduate school. How I found yoga and emotional healing to help me start releasing the trauma I was carrying in my body.  I had been to about every kind of therapist there is to help with my anxiety and I was on a high dose of medication when Andrea introduced me to Eastern somatic practices and the mind, body, spirit connection through Kundalini yoga. This practice ended up being crucial in accessing the trauma I was holding in my body that was causing the anxiety.

    Andrea is a teacher, meditation guide, and energy healer. She is also a spiritual sherpa, helping light the path for the journeyers who are sometimes only a few steps behind her. Andrea has dedicated her life serving people on the journey to live with the full strength of their soul.

    We also speak about how to blend western ideas of loving your neighbor and creating community, with eastern somatic and meditation practices to create truly whole sense of being.

    More About Andrea Ciafardini in her own words.... 

    "I am a Peace Ambassador for transformation of inner-landscapes of both women and men. I pair ancient practices with modern day experience.

    As the founder of Holistic Connections, Inc., I have designed and taught healing workshops on forgiveness, emotional health, and all
    aspects of Kundalini Yoga. I also love working one-on-one with individuals who are looking to grow and transform. My most recent teaching is with the team of Designing Your Life for Women workshop.; a process designed by Stanford University on "How to Live a Joy Filled Life." Check it out.

    My trainings include: Level I Kundalini Yoga & Meditation,  Level II Yoga of Authentic Relationships, Mind & Meditation, Stress and Vitality. Somatic Experiencing, the Enneagram of the Narrative Tradition, and Advanced levels of the Emotional Polarity Technique.  I also have a certificate from Antioch University Women & Leadership Program."

    10 Re-Harmonizing Our Earth with the Power of Your Voice, with Lotus Sky

    10 Re-Harmonizing Our Earth with the Power of Your Voice, with Lotus Sky

    Lotus Sky is a Musical Channel & Shamanic Guide, she creates music and soul sounds to open us to the power of our self-expression and our unique voice. In this episode, we have a cosmic conversation about how our unique sound signature has the power to heal and harmonize us within ourselves and with the world around us. Ultimately, finding & speaking our authentic voice opens the door for us to be who we really are.

    Lotus Sky shares her personal journey through coming out as a queer, immigrant woman from the Philippines - which for her meant estrangement from her conservative Catholic family, getting married and divorced in her early twenties, and leaving a lucrative job as a technologist. At one point, she had it all in terms of worldly success, and decided to follow her soul into the path of being true to herself. She now creates channelled music for healing, bringing forward her “canta ultima” - her heart’s true song and serving others in doing the same. Along the path she learned that the world isn’t a cold, hard place, she’s found a home within herself, and the support of her soul tribe. 

    Towards the end of our conversation, Lotus Sky shares a beautiful and special sound channeling just for this community. The channeling is to reconnect you with mother earth, to awaken to the beauty that you are, and to usher in the new world by releasing negative projections and seeing the good.

    02 How Emotions Get Stuck in Your Body, with Lisa West

    02 How Emotions Get Stuck in Your Body, with Lisa West

    How Unexpressed Emotions Get Stuck in the Body, Lisa West  (Lisawestwellness.com)

    In this Episode I Interview my friend and colleague Lisa West.  It's a wide ranging conversation from a woman who has immense wisdom on the intelligence of the body, and has helped thousands of people recover from chronic pain, having worked for over 20 years in the field.  It was a delight to speak with her, here's some of what we covered:


    How pain and emotions are related, and what I do to help people release chronic pain
    How to work with the stories of our emotions, as well as the physical side of the release to relax and let go of anxiety 
    The importance of working with your nervous system to relax and allow yourself to just be, in a culture that is telling us the exact opposite

    You can find out more about Lisa at Lisawestwellness.com.  She's also offering a free chapter of her book, as well as a free grounding meditation as a gift to you. 

    Lisa West's Bio:
    I have spent most of my adult life exploring and learning many different ways to address physical, energetic and emotional pain. My largest interest lies in the relationship between the physical & energetic bodies and how the mind, body & spirit intertwine. And I enjoy writing about what I find.

    I grew up in the Midwest and received my bachelor's degree in physical therapy from Saint Louis University in 1995. I began to practice yoga shortly after that, and began teaching yoga in 2000. My physical therapy and bodywork career has been focused on orthopedic injuries with special interest and attention to the fascial system, the spine and chronic pain. 

    I have taken a multitude of continuing education courses in various forms of manual therapy, including John Barnes Myofascial Release, Upledger Craniosacral Therapy and Certification in Lymphedema treatment along with many techniques in Joint Mobilization, Muscle Energy Techniques and Soft Tissue Mobilization. I currently live in Ventura, California.

    In my free time I love reading, being in nature, spending time with my favorite people and my cats, and learning as much as I can about this wild and magical place we live in and our amazing bodies that carry us through it!
