Body as an Antenna with Rachel Lambert
In the first of a series on being in your body, with reference to the Polyvagal Theory, we chat with Rachel Lambert, the singing forager, who not only regales us with songs about wild plants but also shares with us her journey through somatic therapy training, her teaching philosophy, the topics of stillness and movement, and the tendency in our society for wanting to pin things down into abstraction and the need to dance with language.

About Rachel Lambert
Rachel Lambert says that she is essentially an artist in the guise of a foraging guide. She has combined her two loves by creating a medley of foraging songs which she shares with those who come on her walks, many of which can be joined in with. After being introduced to Pennywort over twenty-five years ago, her love for wild food has grown. She now runs Wild Walks South West in Cornwall and has a training in somatics, nature awareness, and meditation.
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!
