    Embodied and Awake
    James and Sharon’s conversation with Martin was one that struck me in a surprising and inspiring way. Martin’s ability to explain qualities of embodiment really made for a wonderful compliment to the work I’m doing with my somatic therapist and in my own seated meditation practice. As soon as it ended, I ordered Martin’s book, and I look forward to learning more about embodiment as part of the contemplative space and integrating it into my life and practice. Many, many thanks for this podcast!

    shallow and boring
    You could search high & low and not find a podcast host as boring, shallow and uninformed as James Shaheen. Trike the magazine is great, but this podcast badly needs a new host — unless your goal is to fall asleep. In that case, this is great.

    Hope to hear more in 2017
    I was thankful to see a new episode in my feed this year after a long absence. Hoping to listen in on more thoughtful conversations about all the tough stuff in life.

    Thank You!
    I read the Tricycle Magazine and between issues I was looking for some more inspiration. Here it is! Invigorating discussion... feels like I'm in the room with them. Thank you, Tricycle, for continuing to grow and change. It's been a blessing to have found the magazine, the website, and now the podcast.
