In today's episode we are diving deep into spirituality and nature. I am so excited to bring you this episode as it has been one of my favourite conversations to record. 

Catherine Potter is a marriage celebrant, yoga teacher, retreat facilitator, ecologist and spiritual teacher. As you will come to find she is incredibly passionate about her connection to spirit and earth and believes that by cultivating a spiritual practice closely aligned with nature she is able to bring more meaning and purpose into her own life and helps others to do the same. This episode dives into the history of the spiritual as well as introduces us to many different practices and the connection and intention behind each. I really enjoyed talking with Catherine and I hope that her words inspire you to dive a little deeper into your own practices. Let’s dive in…
