This week we are sharing an interview from the Wandering Yogi Podcast, with Lydia Willig and Earth Speak founders Natalie Ross and Shawna Cason. 

Natalie is a dreamer and story weaver. She seeks to remind folx of the fierce beauty and power in the re-remembering of our deep and wild connection to the Earth, to ourselves, and to the magic and mystery of the Spirit realm. 

Shawna finds inspiration from all aspects of life but most notably nature and human connection. She brings experience and awareness from being a white assuming mixed-race black woman living in America. As a student of Psychological Ethnic Anthropology, she enjoys liberating folks from aspects of what makes them feel othered by society. 

Wandering Yogi Podcast host, Lydia Willig, is a  trained yoga & Ayurveda teacher, and mindful outdoor guide. She is intent on sharing eco-conscious wellness practices with the world, both on and off the mat, for greater health and harmony. Such an embodied yoga practice fulfills every level of your being- body, mind, and spirit- and prioritizes the well-being of all beings! Through her podcast, Lydia shares how the yogic path of wellness can bring us into deeper harmony with our most natural selves.
