This podcast was recorded in November 2018 after the (Burners Of Sydney Surrounds) BOSS Rewind decom event with Amanda Choy from the Spice Cadets. In this episode we discuss Amanda's first burn experience at 2018 burning seed; what it was like having her young son at the burn; the yoga workshop she instructed; the ten principles; and the benefits of meditation and yoga. An exclusive guided mini-meditation session is also attached to this podcast (listen with your headphones for best experience).
