Excellent Sleeping Aid

I have been a listener for over a year now, and this lady has drastically changed my quality of sleep. She speaks about training your brain for deeper longer sleep and she delivers with a soft gentle place for your mind to rest. Thank you so much Katherine for sharing your talent with the world !

My nightly ritual

I cannot say enough about this podcast. Kathryn writes and tells the most gentle stories about the more mundane or low-key — yet pleasant — activities of everyday life…and they knock me out. (I had to listen to the pantry episode half a dozen times to finally find out all the little things the narrator uncovered in her decluttering journey!)

The format and pace are ideal. I almost never get to the second telling.

Thank you for helping to send us off to la-la land.

Works like a charm

I have only listened to a few episodes so far. It was recommended to me by a friend as a substitute for sleeping medication. I can’t believe how much I like it. Your voice is so calming. The only downside is that I’m never awake long enough to hear the end of the story!
