i’ve always been comforted and relaxed by sounds that gradually slow down


(bell and breath)

Slowing down sounds slow me down

Do slowing down sounds slow you down? 


This episode really does help me slow down. I hope it has a similar effect for you. 

I am grateful and accountable to the earth and the human labour that provided me with the privilege of producing this episode. (including all the toxic materials and extractive processes behind the computers, recorders, transportation and infrastructure that make this podcast possible).

My gesture of reciprocity for this episode is to the Stop Ecocide International.
