*Re-Release* Awareness & Compassion With Marianne Williamson
*Re-Release* It gives me great honor to welcome our guest today, Marianne Williamson. She is an amazing woman. Best-selling author, starter of a non-profit, political activist, spiritual thought leader, and someone I have admired for many years. And someone I’ve personally know for the last ten years. She has written 14 books, multiple New York Times bestsellers, including her extremely popular title A Return to Love. She is also the founder of Project Angel Food, a non-profit that has delivered over 12 million meals to ill and dying homebound patients. Most recently, Marianne has stepped into the world of politics. She was a candidate for the 33rd district Congresswoman and a candidate for the President of the United States of America.
This is my conversation with Marianne Willamson, welcome to Kiss the Ground.
True Grit With Mollie Engelhart
Welcome, welcome, everybody. I'm really, really excited for today's episode. We are having my big sister, Mollie Engelhart as a guest, who really is one of the most extraordinary human beings I know. The level of productivity and success and multitasking, and she does everything and everything well. She's a CEO for Sage Vegan Bistro restaurants. She's a chef, she's a regenerative farmer, she's an entrepreneur, she's a mother of three children under seven. She's a wife, she's a board member. She's a matriarch of her community, and really, today's conversation is how has she become such an amazing, powerful, productive, generous human being and do so many extraordinary things in such a short period of time? So, in today's conversation, we really dig into Mollie Engelhart's psychology and how she's created such a life of success.
Fierce Feminine With Erin McMorrow
Today's guest is Erin McMorrow, who is intimately related to Kiss the Ground. She was our first executive director. She met us in Paris for COP 21 when we were able to get the soil story up on the Eiffel Tower. She is an amazing, amazing woman. She's an author, she's a guide, she's an artist. And really her path is, in her words, being a fierce, feminine, high priestess, and really that she's here to embody love. Her book has just launched, it's called Grounded. It's really about the connection between the fierce, feminine, spiritual energy and the connection of our earth and the connection to our soil. Please enjoy, Erin McMorrow.

Farming for What's Right With John Boyd
Today, I have the pleasure of welcoming John Boyd to the podcast. John has been fighting the good fight for over 30 years now. He is a civil rights activist, a farmer, and the founder of the National Black Farmers Association. Our discussion today involves much more than farming. We learn about his family roots, the obstacles he’s had to overcome as a black farmer, and how the future looks for everything agriculture. Please enjoy my conversation with John Boyd.
Worthy of your Time
This is an excellent podcast for anyone passionate about environmental & human health. Yes it’s about farming and agriculture, and you’ll likely learn new things about those subjects, but it also touches on politics, spirituality, creativity, and so much more. I love listening to it on walks around my neighborhood. It’s thought provoking and insightful.
I was excited to listen to this podcast, but I ultimately unsubscribed because I felt like the host failed to do background research on his guests (he should know if someone is from Bloomington, Indiana, and not Alabama, or a made up town called Bloomingdale) and a stumbled getting to the heart of each question he asked.
Ryland and guests doing what’s right for this planet! Thursday’s with kiss the ground!
