Tending Your Life

By Christy Tending

Tending Your Life is a podcast from Christy Tending—that’s me!—I’m an activist, self-care mentor, writer, artist, and mama. In this podcast, we’ll explore the spiritual and political practice of being human. Expect deep inquiry into activism, spirituality, nature, creativity, and relationships. Tending Your Life is designed to evolve our legacies, individually and collectively. This is where self-care and devotional service meet—and become friends. Together, we’ll embrace our whole, messy, beautiful selves—as we work toward this wish: May we all be free.
