Show Up & Surrender

a podcast by Biddy

About the podcast

Show Up and Surrender is a podcast born in 2021, from a shared passion of living consciously, wholeheartedly. From knowing that there will be both good and bad, and that most of the magic quite often happens somewhere in between.

Show up & Surrender is about life. From the day to day things as well as the deeper thoughts and ideas. Often in conversation with Marcella and other friends. Since 2022 you will also sometimes hear Biddy's solo musings.

The one thing this podcast always is, is an invitation to you. To pull up a chair, listen and let me know you your thoughts, your experiences.
