In today’s episode, I am answering listening questions. Topics range from sharing my personal viewpoint on religion and spirituality, navigating different roles and jobs during my day and in my life and dive deep into circle-related questions too.

Tune in to hear more from me on:

  • The role religion and spirituality played during my upbringing and today
  • The journey from my old-school DIY blogging days to my online work now, and how working with my hands was the pathway to exploring community and belonging
  • Navigating different jobs and roles as a human being and practicing flexibility
  • Knowing when it’s time to let go and honoring the power of an ending when it comes to friendships – and also knowing when you’re witholding and taking responsibility
  • Claiming the term ‘circle’ and holding space for all peoples
  • How circle needs to offer the opportunity for equality and the space for consent, also in the context of sharing
