  • Home births and the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy with Anna Clarke

    Home births and the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy with Anna Clarke

    I chat with Anna, ex-hospital midwife who, horrified at the treatment of birthing mothers - and at the bullying of student midwives! - became a homebirth midwife. We talk about how birth interventions are skyrocketing in hospitals, but are low in homebirths. However, less than 1% of births today are homebirths. We look at the reasons why - one of which is insurance companies' refusal to insure home midwives, and another being lack of info given by GPs. We also talk about the shamanic dimensions, or inner journey of pregnancy, the burning of midwives as witches, the use of drumming in labour, and even touch on ecstatic and orgasmic birth - who knew?!

  • Conversing with your pets and connecting with those departed, with Kelly Mercieca

    Conversing with your pets and connecting with those departed, with Kelly Mercieca

    Wondering what your cat or dog is trying to tell you? I chatted with Kelly, an animal communicator who can psychically connect with pets, both living and departed. We chat about how she can 'talk' to dogs, cats and other animals to find out what problems they have, and work with the owners to solve them. She also heals ill pets through reiki!

    Holistic wellness with Melissa de Jong

    I chat with Melissa de Jong about her reiki practise in Yass, NSW, along with her experience in tarot cards and akashic records - listen in to find out what they are! Mel is originally from California. I enjoyed the story of how she found the love of her life in an 'Absorption Centre' in Israel, and followed him from to Australia. Mel is hosting a Holistic Wellness Taster event in Yass in April so we talk about that, too. Connect with Mel here: Home | Friends of the Light Alternative Healing Arts

  • Australian kids' books with author Cate Storey

    Australian kids' books with author Cate Storey

    I chat with kids' author Cate Storey, who started writing books about our native animals because she couldn't find what she wanted in the bookstores. With an environmental scientist for a mum and a botanist for a grandmother, Cate's love of the Australian environment and the lesser-known creatures that populate it shines through in her delightful stories for young readers. Ever heard of a phascogale, a planagale or a greater glider? You'll hear all about these cute creatures in this interview. Connect with Cate at www.wetseasonbooks.com.au

  • Music as a hobby with Jasmine Fellows

    Music as a hobby with Jasmine Fellows

    Come on a musical journey with Jasmine Fellows, part time Business Manager and part time muso! We chat about fitting music into our lives as adults, and how liberating it can be. So many people let music go after bad experiences as a child and miss out on the fun, emotion and inspiration that playing and singing - even in the shower when nobody is listening - can bring us. Jas plays her ukelele, I play my drum, and we sing about llamas and more! Connect with Jas @jasmine.fellows.music on Instagram.
