On this episode of the Pure Green Podcast, Celine speaks with blogger, photographer, author, and teacher Susannah Conway. Susannah is a woman who has touched so many lives through the lessons she learned due to a tragic event that altered her own life many years ago. Now she teaches the healing methods that helped her so many years ago by focusing on cultivating a sense of calm through creativity, and integrating mindfulness and self-awareness into our everyday lives. There is so much wisdom and insight to be gleaned from Susannah’s conversation and we truly hope that you find your own inspiration from this talk, as well.
