Best female consciousness podcast out there
Ellie’s soothing giggly voice pierces through the airwaves with her content raw and the best dissection of our current existence. She has a malleable way of sharing her consciousness experience and merging that with your “girl next door” vibe making it easily digestible.
Would 101% recommend😊🙏☮️
I just have to share how much I have been enjoying Ellie's podcast! I had the privilege of spending a week on meditation retreat with her earlier this year and she just sparkles like a sapphire. Her podcasts are filled with so much joy and warmth which feels infectious to me. Her guests and the topics discussed are so authentic, from the heart, and always inspires me to contemplate further and look deeper into my own mind and heart. So good!! Thank you!!
I loved the raw authenticity of Ellie's podcast. It's refreshing to hear conversation that is very real and unscripted yet highly conscious and practical in multiple realms. Check it out!
