    Friday Meditation - The Story in the Leaves

    This meditation has been one that has been shaping for years. I had no idea when I started taking photos of a tree on this land we get to care for and tend that she would become such an integral part of our lives. It is powerful to me how plants and landscapes can speak.
    Enjoy this meditation my friends and share with those you think would enjoy.

    The Story of My Grandfather - Reflecting on the Past to Help Us Heal

    The Story of My Grandfather - Reflecting on the Past to Help Us Heal

    **** This episode contains a story of loss and may be triggering ****
    Today I am sharing a deeply personal story about how the garden has been a place of connection and healing for me. For most of my life, the garden has been the place I felt so incredibly safe and held. After years of working on healing, I have identified why this is. For my early years, my grandfather grew a garden and I spent year after year with him there. Then we lost him quickly to cancer. It shook my world in ways I never knew.
    So today I am sharing this story and how by acknowledging the hard things we can find a space to grow and connect. The garden for me reminds me not just of him, but of a space that is safe and comforting. He inspired me to get my hands in the soil and find value in the simplest things, but the garden has also become a space that I hold precious because I can return to those times with him on those warm sunny days.
    That said, I used this episode to offer space for you to reflect on the parts of your story that may be hard or challenging but show how we can rebuild them into something beautiful.

Great Companion to Fresh Exchange's Website & Instagram

I was so excited when I found out Fresh Exchange would be launching a podcast earlier this year and it has not disappointed! Megan Gilger has created such a calming but also inspiring series that delves deeper into her work I already follow on Instagram and their website. I particularly enjoyed the episode 'Motherhood, Self Care, and the Journey of Healing with Randi Kay' and hope she puts out more episodes on these and similar topics.

So glad I stumbled across Fresh Exchange! After listening to just one episode a few weeks back, I was hooked. I can tell a lot of thought and research is put into every episode, and I find myself looking forward to each episode drop. Keep the solid content coming - I am a HUGE fan and won’t miss an episode!!
