Episode 75 - Fiona English
Such a beautiful, honest conversation. This reminded me of the importance of being yourself, following your joy and helping the world in that way, not trying to steer a conversation or preach to others. Simply be curious and excited to have conversations with others and be open to other views. It reminded me to be humble, to come back to simplicity. Thank you for opening up a conversation about spirituality and opening up my mind for deeper reflection.
Simple conversations delivered with great insight through music.
In world filled with complications this is a beautiful podcast that just explores the humanity of the individual, what makes them tick and when was their die cast.
