  • Losing the plot lately

    I follow them on social media (and LOVE each and every post) and I really enjoyed the past podcasts. They were so helpful. However and it’s my opinion..the last month or so they are getting rambling & off the plot of the episode. They seem to run out of time to actually talk about the subject and then when they do get to it they don’t really dive in like they use to do. Also a lot of “we will talk about that in another podcast” week after week and they never revisit it. more

  • Thank you

    Just started to listen. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It was perfect timing to hear your episode about making friends with mud. I am in a process of receiving love and forgiveness from self, for self, as I heal. Trauma of great loss. So, so helpful!
