The Unfolding with Irene Lyon
In the fourth and final episode in our series on being rooted in your body we are speaking with Irene Lyon, somatic practitioner and nervous system expert, about how we can attune our bodies, reconnect with biology, and what this could all mean for not only ourselves, but our communities and our planet as a whole.
It's a riveting end to this series where we've journeyed into the depths of our bodily processes and have imagined worlds of beings free to shake, free to feel, and free to be - wild...
'We don’t know it because we haven’t felt it. We’re still figuring out what community is'
- Irene Lyon / ep.48
About Irene Lyon
Irene Lyon, MSc, is a nervous system specialist and somatic neuroplasticity expert. After an injury in the late 90s which she struggled to recover from, even after high-quality training as an exercise rehabilitation specialist, she discovered The Feldenkrais Method, which says ‘humbled me beyond measure and made me see that I still had a heck of a lot to learn’. After training in this, she then came across the other half of her repertoire; Somatic Experiencing (SE), the work of Peter Levine. She has since developed her work in trauma and provides her patients with all her experience and learning to open up their own lives to what is possible with nervous system health.
About the show
We offer a series of conversations to tap into the wildness within ourselves and to uncover what is possible when we do. It is our hope that through the WorldWild Podcast we can contribute to the revitalisation of wild food culture and conversation around the world.
Through people who know their landscapes intimately, we gather the threads to weave a rich tapestry. Piece by piece the vision of a wilder world comes into view. The wild embrace of nature welcomes us back and offers us a seat at the table. A feast, no less!
