Juliet Allen is back and we’re diving deeper into the topic of sex and intimacy than ever before. It’s been over a year and a half since she graced the podcast and we had a lot to explore in regards to how we can get deeply in touch with our own sexual practice and start creating the sex life we’ve always dreamed of. There were many distinctions here Juliet dropped that have opened up some deep considerations for myself and my relationship with sex and I know there they will for you too. Get ready to integrate on a whole new level with yourself and your partners sexually.
The world of social media is here, it’s pervasive and it is not going away; but how do we integrate with it in a healthy and sustainable manner? It’s this questions that lead me to sitting down with Tristan Bray to explore some of the physiological effects that Instagram & Facebook have when in excess and some very interesting distinctions that can help us to stay centred in navigating this vast, polarising, deep, shallow, complex, silly and meaningful virtual world. Get ready to get some wake up calls around the nature of this virtual world and learn the dynamic ways that it is being used by people and organisations around the world. Social media often sits on a knifes edge between being medicine for the world or poison (like many herbs based on their dose), let’s explore where that dynamic line exists.
Join me in a deep exploration of one of human kinds more wonderful companion plants; cannabis. As a herbal medicine this plant, its many strains and it’s phytochemistry are an obvious inclusion for medicine going forward in creating a holistic and integrated approach to healing the body. Shrouded with controversy and authoritarian suppression, cannabis has been dragged through an intense slander campaign for the past 100 years and has been denied to millions as a medicine we may incorporate into our lives and systems; but that is changing. Justin Sinclair is a patient advocate, herbalist and researcher who is on the front line here in Australia and internationally in bringing forth both the shift in cultural narrative around cannabis as well as the data and lore that blatantly tells us how deeply this plant can contribute to our wellness. We have the sovereign right to access medicine, especially when it offers no threat or harm. In this interview Justin and I explore this subject in depth.
One of the more epic episodes for you today gang. Recorded in an old world gin bar in Redfern, Sydney, Charlie Casben, a wonderful bartender and sommelier who owns Moya’s Juniper Lounge and drinks good booze well…
I worked for years with Charlie back in the day when I was tender bar and I knew that in that time I only scratched the surface of his knowledge around the wonderful world of herbalism, botanicals and alcohol. As I got more into the health game I became more and more bored with the flatland commentary that health “leaders" had about alcohol simply being bad and wanted to go deeper into the nature of this substance and continue to do the work to bring an integration between the world of health and booze; I got considerable closer in this interview. If you’re ready to take your health to another level then grab some good booze and strap in for a ride into the old world as we explore the journey herbs and botanicals have taken till we see the current culture emerge around bars and booze, and where we’re going to be able to take it so that a true progression is possible in the way we move forward as an integrated culture.
