The Gentle Finds podcast was founded on the idea that each one of us plays a part in creating the world we live in through the choices we make. In our relationships, the work we do, and the products we buy, our everyday movements leave a mark, for better or worse, and Gentle Finds is here to help you leave a gentler mark. Each week I find a gentle inspiration to share with you, with practical tips about how we can be nicer to ourselves, each other, our bodies, and our environment.
