Since I was a little girl, I’ve sensed something was missing in our modern paradigm…But I didn’t quite know what it was. It wasn’t until we moved to a tumble-down farmstead in the middle of the Wyoming prairie that I found it.

Rediscovering time-honored skills and principles has changed my life forever. But you don’t have to move to a farm to experience this same transformation.

Since 2010, I’ve taught hundreds of thousands of people how to use old-fashioned practices to create joy in their lives. Our high-tech, modern world isn’t the enemy. But it’s not the only way, either.
