    #93 Exploring voluntary simplicity in life & business

    #93 Exploring voluntary simplicity in life & business

    Hey friends,

    I am sharing this solo episode on both my podcasts - Daydreaming Wolves and the DIY Small Business podcast because it feels relevant to both projects. I came across the expression voluntary simplicity this week and it's been intensely on my ever since. While I never resonated with "voluntary poverty" there is so much freedom and pleasure in keeping things simple.

    So in this episode I am exploring how I am valuing simplicity in my life - in the home I bought, the ways in which I allow my business to stagnate, in how I try to get better at letting things be what they are and be led by my values rather than dominant narratives. I am asking what it can look life to be right sized in the space we take up, to find our own kind of success and am also giving a little update on smartphone free life, in case you're interested.

    Let me know what you think!

    #92 Seasonal rituals & a little check in

    #92 Seasonal rituals & a little check in

    Hey everyone,

    this is just a little seasonal check in - I am sharing what I am doing to prepare for winter, about my new home in Scotland, about my worries for the world and the things I am working on at the moment.

    I recorded this sitting in bed on a Sunday afternoon while the dogs are sleeping and I hope it arrives in your space like a little soft cloud full of pandemic reflections 3

    #91 Reconnecting with our own power, sovereignty and truth with Allison Carr

    #91 Reconnecting with our own power, sovereignty and truth with Allison Carr

    Hey everyone,

    I am sorry for the unexpected podcasting pause! Much has happened in the world, I have moved to a new home and I just didn't have the headspace to edit & upload a new episode in a little while. But I am back and excited to share thoughts and conversations in this way.

    Today I am sending a wonderful interview with Allison Carr to you - she recently wrote a really touching zine called Sovereign and so around that we explored finding our own truth, questioning authority and teachers and connecting with our bodies. Allison shared what somatic practices mean to her, what kind of experiences she has made in healing trauma and she also gave us a really great intro to poly-vagal theory. I am really excited to share this as the first episode of autumn and I think as we go into the darker part of the year in the Northern hemisphere there is so much to explore and treasure here. Enjoy!

    Allison Carr is a queer witch, healer, writer, mother and licensed acupuncturist, currently living on the traditional territories of the of the Tanana Dene peoples, also known as Alaska. She is a 10th generation settler of Scottish, German and Scandinavian descent and is sustained by the land she lives on and her relationship with the plants that grow there. She is the creator of the Sacred Wheel Podcast, author of the memoir zine: Sovereign, and offers online sessions in compassionate witnessing and somatic regulation, as well as an online class about regulating your nervous system and the occasional class about magic.

    #90 Exploring the beauty of Wintering with Katherine May

    Hey everyone,

    I'm happy to be back with a beautiful interview episode - I talked to Katherine May (a fellow writer!) about her book Wintering, our experience of the pandemic, the creative process and many other interesting things. I dropped deep into her writing this summer and read her book in just three sittings, which is magic in pandemic attention span terms. I hope you'll receive some comfort and inspiration from hearing about her thoughts too!

    Here is some of what we explored: 

    - What it means to accept seasons if Wintering
    - Being a wild swimmer and how it is the best thing ever
    - Being with the truth of loss, disappointment and failure
    - Self-acceptance and finding your people after an autism diagnosis later in life
    - Writing anti-self-help books

    Katherine May is an author of fiction and memoir whose titles include Wintering, The Electricity of Every Living Thing, The Whitstable High Tide Swimming Club, The 52 Seductions, Burning Out, and Ghosts & Their Uses. She is the editor of The Best, Most Awful Job, an anthology of essays about motherhood. Her journalism and essays have appeared in a range of publications including The Times, The Observer, Good Housekeeping and Aeon.

    Previously the Programme Director for Creative Writing at Canterbury Christ Church University, Katherine currently works as a literary scout for Lucy Abrahams Literary Scouting and a freelance editor for organisations including Faber Academy and Audible.

    #89 Mixed media memoir and reclaiming a place in nature with Sheree Mack

    #89 Mixed media memoir and reclaiming a place in nature with Sheree Mack

    Hey everyone,

    I'm so happy to send this interview with Sheree Mack your way - it's been beautiful to talk to her and I got so much inspiration from the way she approaches creativity, nature and life in general. Here is some of what we talked about: 

    How Sheree experienced the pandemic 
    Wild swimming and reclaiming a place in nature as a black woman
    The magic of mixed media memoir
    Tending to grief through ritual and connection to nature
    Facilitating collaborative creative projects for women of colour

    My practice manifests through poetry, storytelling, image and the unfolding histories of black people. I engage audiences around black women’s voices and bodies, black feminism, ecology and memory. I facilitate national and international creative workshops and retreats in the landscape, encouraging and supporting women on their journey of remembrance back to their authentic selves. I'm currently writing a mixed-genre memoir around a black woman's body with/in Nature.
    As the Project Coordinator for a Heritage Lottery Funded project, I’ve been working with Northumberland National Park Authority, Durham Wildlife Trust and the National Trust, to offer opportunities to BAME communities to spend time outdoors to develop and deepen our relationship with nature.
