Bodyful is a podcast that explores the wonder and complexities of living in this human form, and how we can engage in an ongoing practice of bodyfulness to become more fully at-home in ourselves and in the interconnected web of Gaia, the living earth.

We each have maybe a handful of teachers in our lives that fundamentally shift the way we see or experience— Michelle Cassandra Johnson has been one of those teachers for me.

Occasionally you meet someone who makes you feel good just by being in their presence, no matter what you’re doing or talking about. Sarah Jane Chapman is one of those people.

Note: While this particular episode might be more intriguing for clinicians or folks in recovery from an eating disorder, I also believe there are nuggets in this conversation that will be intriguing to any listener with an interest in the body and psychology. You might think that working with the body would be a central component of eating disorde…

Tiya Caniel Maynard is one of those people who you learn more from just by being around than by sitting in a lecture with your average university professor.

I could start with listing Deirdre Fay’s accomplishments (which, believe me, are MANY)— but that would miss the most impactful element of my interaction with her. Deirdre is that magical and rare combination of kind, warm, smart, and powerful as hell. She’s the one with decades of experience working alongside some of the top leaders in mental healt…
 
Bodyful is my 5th podcast to produce, and I’ve never been this excited or proud to share anything I’ve created. Already, just with this first interview and the future guests I have lined up so far, I know this is going to be something really special. When I was recently scouring through Amazon’s catalog of somatic psychotherapy books, I came across…

As I told them in the interview, if there were some kind of award for a wellness power couple (I'm sure some magazine is working on it), I would sure as hell nominate Brooklynites acupuncturist Dr. Sarah Biffen and hypnotherapist Daniel Ryan. Not only are they both accomplished AF, but they're also genuinely very kind and cool people— none of the c…

Though I've only spent a few hours with Sara Schuster so far, I know it's just the beginning of what's sure to be a meaningful friendship.

Whether you observe Thanksgiving or not, we can all use frequent reminders to zoom out and appreciate what we have... after all, it's a heck of a lot more peaceful to love what we have than it is to focus on/want what we don't have. After the intro portion of this episode (about 11 minutes in), I'm sharing with you a modified version of a wonderful…

Also, CONTENT WARNING on this one, friends. The subject matter deals with sexual abuse and suicide. Nancy handles these delicate topics like the pro that she is (and like someone who’s done a lot of therapy, which she has.) But please, listen to your intuition to decide whether these topics feel okay for you to listen to — and if not, skip the epis…

If you asked me to imagine my version of a "perfect" album, it would likely be a fusion of philosophical/psychological pondering, critical sociopolitical commentary, and killer beats with seductive vocal melodies that drip like honey. And not long ago, I realized that WTF, SUCH AN ALBUM WAS RECENTLY RELEASED, by the ridiculously multitalented TRISH…

Harris III is kiiind of a big deal — so I was pretty nervous about interviewing him. Then, when I showed up to his office all prepared with my huge bag of fancy new gear and couldn't get it to work like it had the night before, I was mortified. COOL. It really speaks to Harris's character that instead of being irritated or judgmental about my tech …
 
Drew Hicks is a triple threat: he's a talented writer and artist, a kick-ass speaker and storyteller, and a true Renaissance dude who could keep himself alive in the wilderness probably longer than anyone else I know.

As I’ve gotten to know him over the past 5+ years, I’ve admired his balance of a joyful, lighthearted approach to life, and serious commitment to his family, friends, and work. When Jonathan started his real estate business and I saw the entrepreneurial side of him, I realized we had mor…
 
Everyone has that one friend who went away to study abroad in college and never really came back. Nicole Boriski is that friend for me.

I spent today in the initial phase of getting the next 3 months of episodes lined up (WOOO!!), and then dealing with a lot of tech headaches from transitioning my old blog to the new site.

Hot damn, y'all. Words do not suffice to describe my interview with The Zen Social Worker, Timothy Gordon. This was probably my favorite conversation yet.

We hear about "going plant-based" for health all the time — it's probably up there with the Keto Diet as the biggest dietary trend right now, and The Economist called 2019 the year of the vegan.
