Liz is a phenomenal host! She asks great questions and pulls key, actionable take-aways for her listeners. She has a variety of world-class guests. I was fortunate enough to be able to go and talk about my upcoming book “Meditation for the Real World” and it was a lovely experience. Liz simply exudes kindness and authenticity.

Thank you for coming back!

Liz, I just started listening to you again. During your (much deserved) time away, I missed you. I love your new format and the messages you’re delivering. Fabulous guests and important conversations. I love how you take charged, controversial, or stuck-in-the-‘old’-way topics and bring grounded, practical perspectives. And your guests with expertise in those areas help to enlighten us. Thank you! 🌟 If you haven’t yet learned more about Human Design, I’d love to have that conversation with you. 😉
