If you’ve ever wanted to live your greatest life, in balance, and on purpose, then do we have the Well Life show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Peter and Briana Borten, health and wellness experts, founders of The Dragontree, and authors of the popular Rituals for Living Dreambook and a beautiful new book, The Well Life.

And that’s just what I want to talk with them about today, How to Use Structure, Sweetness, and Space to Create Balance, Happiness, and Peace.

That plus we’ll talk about babies and spas, Salem and Witchcraft, construction nightmares in Boulder, following your bliss vs. following your blisters, making things out of wood, swimming in natural bodies of water, and why the price-per-ounce of soup just doesn’t matter.
