Local Psychotherapist-turned Flower Farmer Launches New Podcast May 27th, 2022
Introducing a new podcast highlighting the local artists, makers, and shapers of the Hudson Valley.
In her new podcast Into Our Own Hands, Gretchen Winterkorn uses her tools cultivated in her own life as a psychotherapist and flower farmer to share the results of her dirty work – growing as a human and working with her hands in her native Hudson Valley. Join Gretchen as she explores how we can improve our living experiences as humans, create with our hands wherever we are, and reclaim ownership over our own lives.
Our hands – our personal tools for survival for millennia – are no longer something we engage in adult life in meaningful skillful ways in the current culture. Reconnecting to our hands, handwork and the process of making can help us reconnect to feeling responsible for our own lives. Listen to conversations with the artists and makers of Hudson Valley about how handwork impacts their lives. Knitters, potters, wild clay harvesters, early childhood educators, farmers, hunters, weavers, acupuncturists, and more.
In each episode, learn how to take a process of making into your own life in some small way so you can begin to connect to handwork as well. We are all the makers of our own lives. Let’s live that way. Again.
Into Our Own Hands with Gretchen Winterkorn launches on May 27th, 2022. Find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, & wherever podcasts can be found.
