Stephen is a teacher, author, storyteller, spiritual activist, and founder of Orphan Wisdom. He makes books, tends farm and mends broken handles and fences, succumbs to interviews, teaches and performs internationally. Our topic includes how to die well in a death-phobic society, especially poignant during this Coronavirus pandemic. I first come across Stephen when I watched his Griefwalker documentary and saw the staggering and sterile emptiness in which so many people die today in the modern world. Stephen's approach to death is alive, honest and so desperately needed. During our conversation, we talk about Elderhood, asking the question - where is it and how to be one?

Join me with Vanessa Alfaro: The Empowered Communicator on another episode of the Messages for Humanity Vodcast.
Did anyone teach you how to be with anger in a healthy and creative way? Did anyone show you how to move angry/rageful energy from your body? Did anyone tell you that anger is a powerful, necessary, and creative force?
The Empowered Communicator, Coach and Mediator, Vanessa Alfaro's mission is to coach women on how to have effective and courageous conversations in their lives. She also helps women transform anger from destructive patterns of expression to healthy and creative ones so that they unapologetically step into their greatness and powerfully speak their truth. And, she's an expert in resolving conflict. The purpose of these dialogues is to bring together the clearest and most genuine way-showers of our time to hear and heed their message. Their words and the spirit in which they deliver them could lead us toward a trail of breadcrumbs that inevitably guides our way home.

Join me for this absolutely brilliant conversation with Matthew Remski, author of many books, his latest being Practice and All is Coming: Abuse, Cult Dynamics, and Healing in Yoga and Beyond. In this episode we really get into the dynamics being unravelled in the recent Kundalini Yoga expose, and, in all honesty, the majority of yoga's that came to the West. I personally have been through this experience, and so, feel particularly connected to this topic. In this conversation, we focus mostly on the psychology of Cults, which enables, and disables this widespread abuse and hypnosis. I personally want to thank Mathew and all like him, because in my day - there was no one to talk to.His clear and direct approach is a breath of fresh air.

At a time when the future seems so uncertain, Emeline will bring to the forefront the kinds of concerns and worries that her generation now faces. The willingness to listen to the younger generation was a quality that Andrew Harvey placed heavy emphasis upon, and so, let us do just that - and truly hear what the next generation has to say.
Anaiya and Oshun DuBellay in their final part exploration into White Privilege
Anaiya Sophia uses her voice as medicine, to heal and reveal the false codex that we have been living under. Known for showing up as a trailblazing resource of unapologetic truth and transparent courage, her heart is both fierce and tender. She carries an oral message that stirs the remembrance of a continuous lineage with the Feminine Principle that throughout the centuries has preserved its spiritual dignity, without the need for permission or recognition from any other source.
Occitania is perched on a cliff side overlooking the medieval Troubadour Chateau of Puivert, in the “Occitan” region of Southern France. Puivert is famed for its Troubadour's, Romance, Grail stories and Cathar alliances. Nestled in-between Montsegur and Rennes les Chateau, the valley of Puivert is fondly known as 'the Shire' from Lord of the Rings. Its gentle, peaceful beauty touches everyone who visits.
Occitania is where we live and where we love! Our “magical” home is often described as 'healing, beautiful and enchanting! We double up as a Bed and Breakfast, Tour Guides and Story-tellers who provide a restful sanctuary for those ‘on the path’.
The Initiation of Sacred Body Awakening is where a woman comes into contact with the Sacred Temple Codes hidden within her body. This is a whole body initiatory process into the revival of the Sacred Arts, the ancient feminine way of ecstatically marrying the erotic body with the sacred heart, in union with the soul.
On this call, I would like to take you on a journey to the city of Themiskya on the Black Sea. This is the place where the fictional character, Wonder…

Sanctuaire de la Sainte-Baume, Plan-d'Aups-Sainte-Baume, France
This is going to be a gorgeously mystical retreat! Sainte Baume is a cave in the South of France where Mary Magdalene ended her earthly life. It is said that she lived the last years of her life as a hermit. However - she is still there today for all those who come to this grotto. It is known by the mystics that Sainte Baume carries a 3-stage initiation. There is a common phrase that says “Mary was lifted up seven times a day by the angels”. These are the kinds of things that shall be revealed over the 5 days of our retreat together, and much much more!
25th July - 1st August 2020
Occitania, Southern France
Since 2015 I have been working alongside women with Sacred Body Awakening in both workshop and Facilitator Training formats. It has been a wild and fast-growing success, that has literally swept the planet. But it is not the end vision. There is a second step and another one after that, and I am ready to take that second step with you now. The second step is the invitation and inclusion of Men, into the same quality of work and presence. The ultimate healing between the sexes AND sexual identifications. Here is an arena where we can heal the distrust and 'games' between the sexes AND the phobias and judgments between the gay and straight (and everything in between).
The role of Priestess is like a rushing, tumbling river that silverishly snakes throughout the land bringing life to everything it touches, while at other times, that very same river goes underground, where it no longer can be seen but felt. The Priestess is the faith-keeper of a continuous lineage with the Feminine Principle that throughout the centuries has preserved its spiritual dignity, without the need for permission or recognition from any other source.
It is time for use to reinforce the anchoring of the high vibrations of light onto the earth. One way we can do this is through Christina Miglino's special 1-day virtual experience.

One day of events and rituals online - not to be missed! And I am appearing 11am PDT! Come and join us!

Dearest Friends, it is time for us, as inhabitants of this earth, to take action and to do our part in riding out this storm AND to look out for one another. I am taking this situation seriously, and am acting responsibly. If I am crying 'Wolf' - so be it. I would rather warn you of a wolf than say nothing at all.
Have you ever been in a situation when someone else made you do something which you did not want to do in the first place? Join Anaiya with summit host Angelica Isis Azura for this free online event where they explore how to spot and derail manipulative tendencies in your relationship before they erupt into resentment and rejection.
I first sat down on a sheepskin in 1996 for a Kundalini Yoga class in London's East End, with Sat Katar Kaur. It was in that first class that I…
What if the way we live intentionally weakens and shuts down the female's innate gift of healing, nurturing and initiating? What if we were unaware of just how many step-by-step tactics come our way to jeopardize the potential that always happens when women gather? In this talk, I will go back to Eve, the mitochondrial DNA, the Starfire blood, the collapse of the Temple and into today's burnt-out, multi-tasking, career-driven, super mums as the fatal signs of systematic disempowerment. And, more importantly, why and how to reject this.
Join Anaiya on Valentine's Day for a 2-hour Kundalini Yoga class that focuses on Sacred Marriage and her own inner marriage teachings. This class is both a live class and replay and will include movement, breath, prayer and meditation. Bring your tissues! This work is immensely touching and healing.
Again - some pearls of wisdom from a fellow swan surrendered to the current that is taking us.Finally, after battling, withdrawing and crying, I think, I hope, and I…
