    Episode 11: What's Your Relationship to Anger?

    Episode 11: What's Your Relationship to Anger?

    We've made it to the end of the Hero's Journey! Our final stop is the Liver, a powerful organ and meridian that works with the whole body. Sometimes called a General (or in modern terms the Big Boss Manager), we talk about the common ways it can get unbalanced and cause problems. Liver is expressed through anger, so we talk about what it means to be angry, how to manage the energy that comes with it, and finding role models to help learn how to channel anger into making changes.

    Episode 10: Keep Curious While Standing Firm

    Episode 10: Keep Curious While Standing Firm

    The Gall Bladder is the decision-maker of the body, helping us pivot from side to side. So what happens when your gallbladder is removed?? Luckily they can't take the Meridian! We talk about what roles the organ and the meridian play in maintaining balance, relaxing and strengthening the psoas muscle, and how to stay curious about your body.

    Episode 9: Give Your Heart a Hug

    Episode 9: Give Your Heart a Hug

    Raymond & Billy talk about the supplemental fire meridians of the body, the Pericardium and Triple Heater (aka Triple Warmer aka San Jiao). We talk about the three burners, the discovery of a new organ that acupuncturists already knew about, how to give your heart a hug, and some general overview of these meridians in the body and what select points we use most often.

    Episode 8: Eat Kidney Beans

    Episode 8: Eat Kidney Beans

    This episode focuses on Kidney, the Yin meridian of the Water Element and the filtrator of our bodily fluids. We talk about restorative postures you can do in the late afternoon, what to eat to tonify your energy, how the 7 year cycle impacts the body, and how fear and trauma relate to the Kidney's role. (The conversation was recorded last winter, so there are no mentions of the pandemic or civil uprisings.)

    Episode 7: Urgency & the Abyss

    Episode 7: Urgency & the Abyss

    Hi folks, we're back from winter break! We took time off that got a little extended - you may have heard about this global pandemic?! The conversation was recorded last fall, so there will be no mentions of current events. This episode begins our descent into the unconscious and Water element: we talk about the (Urinary) Bladder and how it relates to fluids in the body, our body's sense of urgency and safety, fears, healing trauma, the power of storytelling, and peering into the abyss.  We talk about how shiatsu therapists work the meridian versus how acupuncturist needle it, and how developing a touch sensitivity is both a practice and medicine available to everyone.

    Episode 6: How did we get here?

    Episode 6: How did we get here?

    A small episode in honor of the illustrious Small Intestine. Some say the way to someone's heart is through their stomach, but the Small Intestine may be the real gatekeeper. Sifting and sorting to determine what is true and allowed to pass. A highway that can take us all through the body, but especially good for shoulder and neck pain. Shiatsu therapist Raymond and acupuncturist Billy talk about how they use the channel in their work.
