My friend, Fran Sorin, is a coach, best-selling author, gardening and health evangelist, futurist, and an advocate of open-heartedness, joy, and deep connection. Her mission is to help people design a life they’re meant to live–one that’s aimed at joy, wellbeing, and freedom. In her highly-regarded book, Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots through Gardening, Fran teaches the art of living creatively and encourages us to discover the magic taking place every day.

Fran joins us today to share her wisdom on maturing and aging gracefully. She describes her transition from motherhood to empty-nester and how becoming an interfaith minister allowed her to own her spiritual identity. She offers advice for people who want to start gardening but are afraid that they might kill plants. She also underscores the role of curiosity in living a vibrant life and highlights the importance of focusing on people who suffer.

“Curiosity leads me to where I need to go; it is my North Star.” - Fran Sorin
