What’s in a nut? That was the kernel of this one, but we got sidetracked, charting Ciara’s evolution of thinking…For all Ciara’s recipes and blogs follow this link…  Follow this link to see the products discussed…

This chat with Br Shubamrita was truly inspiring. As one of Amma’s leading disciples, he tours the world, teaching meditation and helping his audience reach towards spiritual enlightenment.

In this amazing deep dive with Master Mantak Chia we delve into the beautifully simple yet profound philosophy of Taoism.

In this chat with our first ever guest on the show, we dig into the sometimes ‘icky’ world of raising children and educating them about sex. Sarah has a unique ability to break down difficult conversations into simple actions.

In this rather wandering chat, we discuss lots of interesting paradigms around managing our energy and supporting our body’s adrenal stress response, engaging and toning the vagus nerve, acknowledging and disrupting the casts that we wear physically and emotionally.

What an opportunity to explore the emotional aspect of being a medic and the ramifications for all society if we continue not to train for and focus on compassion in our frontline medical services…

Finn meets Dr. Rober Verkerk, who is an absolutely wicked scientist with a deep deep knowledge of human nutrition, and the heart of a health activist.

We meet Maire Ni G and discuss Taoism, with a particular focus on longevity and sexuality.

In this episode we focus on what we can do to support and enhance that all important grey matter. From stress reduction techniques to eye yoga to using herbs and nutrients to prevent damage and optimise cognitive function.

An introduction to us! Our wanderly paths into wellness including a brief history of Lydia’s battle with glandular fever and the harsh realities of being a young parent; also Finn’s love of rebellion and how it feeds his interest in natural health, with a chat about how we can integrate little bits of “me time” into our day.
