I am sharing this solo episode on both my podcasts – Daydreaming Wolves and the DIY Small Business podcast because it feels relevant to both projects. I came across the expression voluntary simplicity this week and it’s been intensely on my ever since. While I never resonated with “voluntary poverty” there is so much freedom and pleasure in keeping things simple.
So in this episode I am exploring how I am valuing simplicity in my life – in the home I bought, the ways in which I allow my business to stagnate, in how I try to get better at letting things be what they are and be led by my values rather than dominant narratives. I am asking what it can look life to be right sized in the space we take up, to find our own kind of success and am also giving a little update on smartphone free life, in case you’re interested.
Let me know what you think!

⋒ Hi, my name is Yarrow and I am your host.
My podcast Daydreaming Wolves explores ritual, politicized healing and creative expression through interviews and solo episodes.
I live a soft & slow life in Scotland and create rituals and ceremonies for the big and small milestones in life. I also write, make textile art, cuddle my dogs, swim in the sea all year and do a lot of queer dreaming.
