Dive deep as we begin Season 2 with Troy Hadeed, an immensely studied yoga teacher from Trinidad and Tobago, creator in the One Yoga Trinidad community, host and teacher of multiple Gaia TV series, and embodiment of yoga itself.  We get his unique insight on yoga, from "Fuck the Pose" to relating yoga to tai chi and how the breath connects all beings on the planet.   Troy views the science of yoga as a personal practice and one’s own journey of self-discovery.  He says, "To everyone Yoga may seem to signify something different, but let’s be specific and not get caught up in all the new age, a pretty language that makes our practice sound all profound. Yoga is real. Yoga can be found in everything we do, say, and think. It is the struggle and suffering, as well as, the uplifting and inspiring. Yoga lives in the ashrams, churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, and is evident in the natural world. Yoga, in essence, is the reality that we are connected and a part of all things, mundane and divine. The practice of Yoga is the process of clearing all the obstacles and illusions that prevent us from realising and embodying that divine union." You can check out his work more and flow with him at beyondyogatv.com, Gaia TV, troyhadeed.com, and @troyhadeed.

7. Bridging the Gap of Science + Spirit w/ Shannon Amberg
Dive deep as we explore just how connected science and metaphysics truly are in this episode with Shannon Amberg from Wisconsin, USA.  A scientist by training and current Reiki Master Teacher, Shannon is the perfect source for answering all the questions we have about this topic. She has several higher education degrees in science, including a Master's in Environmental Geography and Conservation Biology and Ph.D. in Natural Resources. So yeah, she knows very well about skepticism and seeking truth under the burden of "proof." You can imagine the challenge of accepting and understanding when her psychic abilities began to open quickly. Her education and research experience has focused on the natural environment and the psychology and social psychology of how people relate to and engage the natural world. For the last decade, she conducted research and taught at the college level in this field.  Now she's a Reiki Master practitioner and her biggest challenge in this life by far is learning how to integrate her scientific, logically-trained mind with the very boundless world of Spirit and the Universe. Shannon can be found on IG at @gratitudemaven and as a co-host for her podcast "Souls and Stardust" on Spotify, Apple, and everywhere else you listen.

5. Self-Care During Loss, Change, and Healing w/ Jessica Harlan
Dive deep into this episode and hear an incredible story about how powerfully showing up for ourselves in the most crucial times can change the healing game on all levels in our lives. Jessica grew up in a small town in Ohio. She always felt different, and she followed her heart to Colorado. When she moved, she was in awe of the beauty and adventure and felt like her soul belonged. She felt home. Six months after she and her boyfriend Jason moved, he passed away and her world shattered. Little did she know that she would not only grieve the loss of her best friend, but everything else that wasn’t healed within her. She used unhealthy coping mechanisms to handle her grief and survive. Depressed and lost, she never thought she would be happy again. With the help of a few close family members and friends, she sought help and began her healing journey. Committed to growth and change, she finally felt free. She met some incredible women that helped her along the way to personal transformation and she is forever grateful for those that have helped her at her weakest moments. A natural healer, she hopes to inspire others and help them on the path to transformation. Her passion is being of service to others.  Her love of nature has inspired her to climb mountains. There is no feeling like standing at the top of a summit, and no better symbol for growth and change than the journey to the top. The mountains keep her grounded, centered and smiling.
