amazing podcast! you have to listen to this
Michael not only has a soothing voice, and a very welcoming presence, the content she provides is really helpful! I struggle with clutter and letting go of things. Michael has such a compassionate approach, while being very informative and providing excellent content. Her style is easy and I feel like I'm sitting having coffee with her. Please listen and share! This is a winner!
A solid way to explore enery tools.
I am not spiritual in my work or life and enjoy hearing Michael's tools and ideas for cleaning out our lives. Her passion, care, and knowledge comes through. It is wonderful to have a way to connect with these ideas that are very much out of my day to day paradigm.
Like coming home
Michael’s presence is so warm and welcoming and her podcast feels like coming home to a part of myself I haven’t met in a long time. Even just a few minutes into an episode I feel more grounded, at ease, and notice myself taking a deep exhale. I love her holistic take on energy and decluttering practices and how much she makes me want to be the best version of myself by creating a sacred space in my life with all that I do. Truly one of the top podcasts I’ve subscribed to. You’ll want to listen to every episode again and again.
