This is episode 35 and today I’m here with Lucy Aitkenread talking about creating community.

Lucy Aitkenread is founder of Parent Allies, a place that resources parents to be allies to their children. She lives off the grid in New Zealand with her family, where she creates videos and writes, facilitates retreats and workshops about how we can live compassionately – with our families, communities, ourselves and the earth.
