Love the Story Pro Series
Sally is such a warm and engaging interviewer. She creates a space where it feels likes she’s sitting in her living room talking to a wise, close friend. These intimate conversations reveal many pearls of wisdom.
A Much-Needed Reframing
I love this podcast. Sally is a master at reframing the conversation on aging, and it's so refreshing to hear someone tell the truth--aging isn't easy, nor is it possible to forever remain in youth, but by no means are we expired beings. Far from it.
There is so much unknown as we inevitably grow older, but the one thing I know for sure is that I'm taking this wise woman's narrative with me.
An excellent, thougtful podcast

I love Vital Presence, and I encourage thoughtful, savvy, engaged people everywhere to make Sally Fox and Vital Presence an intrinsic part of their personal and spiritual growth.
