Hello and welcome to the Sunshine & PowerCuts podcast. My name is Heather and I am your host on this journey of empowerment.

This podcast features two types of episodes which alternate.

Sunshine ones like this one offer inspiration drawn from nature,

and the PowerCut episodes are where I share insights into my life living off the power grid.

Embark on a journey empowered by nature, then continue the conversation as part of the Sunshine & PowerCuts Community
