A Soul to Soul Conversation with Rachel Awes
From a human connection standpoint, wouldn't it be better if we all were more childish, just playing and showing up just the way we are? To our guest, the fabulous Rachel Awes, even if it sounds cliche, the world would be a much better place if all of us moved from the softness of our hearts.

She has a unique approach to life and a colorful philosophy to see things she gracefully shared in our conversation. Rachel is the author of three beautiful books, "All I did was listen," "The great green okayness," and "Diving in," which we discuss and take some valuable nuggets from them.
Today, our conversation spins around Rachel's intoxicating view of the world, life, and human interaction.
