PRIMAL CHILDBIRTH - PODCAST #7 - Bexlife natural home birth story

Bex and I sat down after a day of shooting Q&A videos for Bexlife.com to discuss some of the questions we didn't cover during the shoot. The conversation quickly turned to babies, primal drugless childbirth and hypnobirthing. Sh*t got real…

THE BEXLIFE PHENOMENON - PODCAST #5: REBEKAH BORUCKI

I finally had the opportunity to sit with my long time friend Rebekah Borucki and discuss the YouTube phenomenon of Bexlife.com. Starting in 2009 with "4 minute fitness" YouTube videos, Bexlife has grown into one of the leading forces of the women's wellness movement. Using social media to share her life as an open book she covers the areas of fitness, spirituality, business, personal growth, raising a healthy family and the ever changing world detox and nutrition. 

In addition to being a YouTube Goddess, Rebekah is: 

- a fitness and yoga instructor, 

- a meditation teacher, 

- an organic gardener, 

- a backyard chicken farmer and goat herder,

- the wife of rockstar photographer Justin Borucki, 

- a mother of five,

- and an all around modern Super Woman

The first thing we set straight is that Bex doesn't like lychees (eating the entire bowl was purely accidental). Next order of business was to realize that thirty minutes into the podcast it had stopped recording… And then there's this bit about Mob Wives and colonics. It could not get any better, but it did. Bex started dropping F-Bombs and we got into some really good conversations about: 

- contemplating death at eight years old 

- past life regressions 

- entering childbirth as a full participant including the painful parts

- orthorexia and the dangers of mainstream media

- the "complications" of returning to simple eating

- and how society and media can disconnect us from our innate personal power robbing us of a full life experience

FOOD, MEDICINE OR POISON? - PODCAST #4: DAN FARELLA

Dan Farella joined me on the podcast to discuss his life and work as a "Plant Monk." We talked about so many things though—the insane war on dandelions, viewing the natural world as an amusement park, eating as entertainment rather than intuitive necessity, the foraging trend in the restaurant world, the culture shock of two Americans visiting India, aaaaand we may have discussed something about wild food foraging in there, not sure, you'll have to listen to find out... 

Dan Farella is an expert food forager, herbalist, teacher and woodlands guide. Through his teaching Dan awakens our fascination with the natural world inspiring a deeper, more intelligent and respectful connection. He offers classes and video content from his website: returntonature.us
