Kripalu Perspectives Podcasts

Personally and professionally, Portland's been exploring the world of natural and alternative healing practices for nearly two decades.

She's experienced countless modalities from past life regression therapy to Panchakarma, from sweat lodge ceremonies to soul retrieval -- and her innate curiosity about healing and the body-mind-spirit connection never abates.

She's the creator, host, and executive producer of What's the Alternative? on Veria Living TV (on Verizon FiOS, DISH, and Frontier). She's the host and producer of Higher Ground on K4HD.com and hosts and produces the YouTube series, Headlines, Health, & Healing. She also appears on WGBH's Greater Boston as an alternative medicine contributor.

As host and producer of Kripalu Perspectives, a podcast she created for the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Portland interviews leaders in the natural health world. Her interest in merging media and alternative therapies began years ago when she created Journeys Into Healing for Wisdom Television.

As a host, reporter, producer, and writer, she's further explored the topic for shows airing on the Hallmark Channel, Oxygen, PBS, the Comcast Network, WCVB-TV, Vermont Public Television, Wisdom Television, and WZMY-TV and for magazines like Body + Soul and Alternative Medicine.

Over the years, she's interviewed the likes of Deepak Chopra, Barbara Brennan, Jean Houston, Ilana Rubenfeld, Joan Halifax, Donald Epstein, Rosemary Gladstar, Loretta LaRoche, Jonathan Ellerby, Dr. Herbert Benson, Dr. Joan Borysenko, Dr. Mark Liponis, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Edward Hallowell, Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, Dr. Maoshing Ni, and Dr. Mark Hyman.
