Good for the soul.
Honest, uplifting, thought provoking and touching collection of meaningful and articulate conversations with lovely people that talk about the journey it is to be human. The importance of kindness and self love. It makes you feel good about the human race, lucky to be in this world and that we are actually all just in it together and constantly growing and learning about ourselves.
Learning & Healing
This podcast is a gentle reminder with each episode that we are all human and each of us are facing challenges and suffering and struggling to make it through this life. This podcast speaks to celebrating life and facing the struggles rather than hiding. Fearne and each guest give us the opportunity to learn and find our strength to run towards our fear and feelings with the seed of hope in our heart that healing will be found on the other side. Grateful for this podcast and the openness found here regarding mental health, the importance of growing our spiritual strength and the healing that occurs when we are able to love ourselves a bit more. Fearne and her guests are here helping others learn and heal. I have learned that forgiveness allows love in and we all need to be embraced with love. Thanks so much Fearne.
Good for the Soul
I’ve been listening to Fearne for the past couple weeks on my commute to work (and home). This time in my life hasn’t been generally good or happy, so I was looking for an uplifting podcast when I came across Happy Place. Fearne’s conversations with not only some of my most beloved celebrities but other, less well known (to me) people, have helped me get through this difficult time in my life. We all have different life challenges and Fearne does a beautiful job exploring those with each of her guests, and magnificently adds her own colorful yet completely genuine, honest, and down to earth perspective. Thank you Fearne, for bringing light into my days! Keep going! ❤️
