Well, when you hear that someone's written a book called 'Be a Free Range Human' you just know that you've got to get them onto your show. As I'm all about helping you to live a life on your own terms, it seems that Marianne Cantwell and I are talking the same language. 

This week on the Practical Magic Podcast, and as part of the Reset & Refocus conversations, I'm talking with Marianne about living a free range life, and how much has changed since she released the first edition of the book back in 2012.

On the show we talk about:

  • What is is to live a truly free range life, and how it's not just about being a digital nomad tapping away from your keyboard in Bali!
  • Why it's important to strip back the outer layers of how we want to life our lives, to get to understand what makes us tick, and what's at the core of who we are as individual human hearts.
  • The cultural shift Marianne has noticed since writing the first edition of Be a Free Range Human 7 years ago, and how there's no 6 week programme out there that will get you to where you really desire to be.
  • How living a free range life is about being led by intuition and accessing your inner wisdom, all whilst having your feet on the ground.
  • How to deal with the 'Beige Army', i.e. why fear doesn't need to dominate living a life on your own terms, and not letting other people's stories hold you back.
  • Bringing your whole self (mess and glory) to the free range party.

Marianne also shares her wellbeing and self care go-tos (they involve sound baths and breath work, which I am ALL over).
