Perfect podcast for stressful times!

I couldn’t think of a better time for this info to be coming through, nor a more qualified person to share it. Kristen does a great job of educating on how to nourish our nervous system, something we could all benefit from, especially in these stressful times in our vata-dominant culture. I love how she weaves in her personal stories; it makes the content more accessable. And the voice! So soothing and part of the medicine.
