Meet Johanna Warren
I was planning to be on tour for the rest of 2020, but now I’m surrounded by nettles and bleating lambs in the hills of rural Wales. Everything I’d been working so hard on for a long time isn’t happening anymore, so it’s been a massive gasp of letting go… but I trust what’s happening, and I’m grateful for the course correction. The hypocrisies of identifying as a healer while living life on tour, burning tons of fossil fuels to travel the globe peddling plastic, has been wearing on me for years. What I find myself doing now instead—filling my days with foraging, farming, and gathering firewood—actually feels much closer to my core values and sense of integrity.
