    Happy birthday magic Meg! 🙂 thank you for sharing your birthing day.

  2. Tuli says:

    I loved this podcast. As a woman I too have reached the same/similar position regarding feminism and also challenge and being resilient humans who prioritise soul growth and time to be. Just so lovely to hear your calm words on these subjects and witness your relationship as well!

    1. Thanks Tuli, it would be good to see the next gen of radical homemaking feminists tell their stories, and connect up.

  3. Ali says:

    Thank you Meg (and Patrick). So much wisdom, vulnerability and generosity, as always. xx

  4. Ellen says:

    Happy birthday and the day after and the day after, dear Meg. Keep up living your happy life, in the natural world filled with berries, tree-climbing children,
    a loving partner. Let them shine over the fear of what lyes ahead.
    Thank you for giving me your story. It has brought back many happy memories from my long life. It has reignited a flame in me I thought was fading.
    A, non-lifting, hug.

    1. Oh Ellen, we’re so glad to hear this. Thank you.

  5. Jess says:

    Dear Meg you are an inspiration to me. As a young Mum feeling a little odd-one-out at times, I often think of you and turn to your words of wisdom and displays of bravery as I move forward guiding our children and family in a direction that follows our hearts. All my blessings with you and thank you for your vulnerability and honesty in this podcast in particular. x

    1. Thanks Jess, we’re feeling your courage to keep leaning into being you, despite what others around you want you to be.

    Happy Birthday Meg ❣️

    A heartfelt gratitude for your beautiful intimate sharing – thank you

    Admire so much of what you both have achieved-
    we are in the process manifesting a life on our farm – without the requirement of our mindset to work off farm – it’s just taking that leap of faith ❣️

    I send you love and gratitude for we are inspired by everything you do.

    With love

    1. Thanks for sharing, Jenny. Sending neopeasant love and more dynamic fungal networks into your soils to grow your subsistence and the more-than-human world that makes life possible.

  7. Belinda says:

    Happy belated birthday- thank you for sharing. A nourishing and enjoyable listen.

  8. Julie says:

    Happy birthday fellow 49 year Meg. I’m writing a diary every day of this final year of my fourth decade. I want to live every day as fully and passionately as I humanly can and maybe read it back in my 50th year…and see if any wisdom is contained therein ha ha. I wrote at 39 as well, but just one day – the last day of 39-40. I felt that 49-50 warranted something a bit more indulgent. Lots of love to you pinnacle person on planet earth. X Julie

  9. Eleanor says:

    Thank you for your beautiful reflections and conversation. As always, so many little (and big!) things to ponder…I found myself wondering on the elders in my community also & giving thanks for this. I too wish and attend to a grounded, yet wild, earthed, cyclical feminism the more I age ..Belated Birthday Blessings to you Meg!

    1. Thanks Eleanor, ‘cyclical feminism’ – nice!

  10. Cláudia Varino says:

    Happy birthday Meg!

    I love to hear you, so much! Has I said once before, hearing you all, seeing your videos, absorbing your shares, makes me feel part of this larger community, and makes you all much closer to me, and I really treasure this feeling of honest-lovely-sharing and decrease in distance! I have a sweet-admiration for your community. Already hopping for your next post! Sending Love from a small portuguese city!

    1. Thank you for what and how you say things, Cláudia.

  11. Rachel says:

    Thank you both for this beautiful conversation. You gently and playfully bear witness to so much love and wisdom. I really love that photo of you Meg, it tells so many stories! Thank you again for doing what you do.

  12. Lisa says:

    Taking the time for self to deeply rest……….wisdom xx

  13. Worker says:

    This was amazing and beautiful. I hate femenism, the marxist version meant to divide the men from the women. Extinction occurs when we blindly follow this genocidal ideology. True feminine power lies in the womb, the power to create new life, to raise children to honor their ancestors and their folk traditions and to honor their cultural and folk heroes. Man and woman together in a healthy relationship are like the completion of an electrical circuit. Marxist femenism is a revolt against nature. Embrace nature and embrace your ancestors. Embrace tradition. That is power and the system fears that healthy dynamic and wishes to destroy it completely.

    1. Yes, Marx on the one hand, corporate-feminism on the other, and sacred feminism dismantled by this binary of city-centric empire building where marxists need capitalists to frame their ideology, and capitalists just need to keep violating Mother Country/Grandmother Gaia, robbing all their gifts for gratuitous consumption.

      1. Worker says:

        I’m with you on capitalism. Communism and capitalism ate both hell– whatever your concept of that is. Its a false dichotomy when the same tribe created both systems for a total global takeover.
