Get ready for the next Going Beyond with Randi Zinn Live Podcast recording on Thursday, February 13th! We are featuring some of the game changers and leaders who are choosing CALM over STRESS, HEALTH over BREAKDOWN and TOOLS over HELPLESSNESS!

Yes, you might’ve guessed it..the topic of our next podcast panel is: STRESS!

And why stress?

Here’s what we all know about it: We are all stressed out. Stress has become a normal state of mind, one we all deep down detest but have also become accustomed to.

But what is this level of stress doing to our mind, body and soul? We experience stress’s heavy hand in the form of anxiety, auto-immune issues, infertility, and an overall sense of disconnection from ourselves and our planet. We seek respite in a myriad of ways but a deep exhale is hard to come by.

Here at the Going Beyond Podcast we don’t run away from the tough stuff, we dive in to seek solutions, connection and power. They say the only way out is through, but how exactly do we power through stress?

We can’t WAIT to dig into this conversation and we know it’s going to be a game changer for all of us.

After college, she moved to Northern California where she joined her sister, Melany Dobson, in the cannabis industry. There freya worked with Humboldt Brothers, as an administrative assistant and co-manager of one of their cultivation sites. Freya developed a deep knowledge of the cannabis plant as an outdoor crop; as she oversaw the growing season from seed to harvest.

Deepening her experience, Freya held a harvest and processing position for one of cannacraft’s premier specialty farms in Mendocino, CA, where she experienced growing with limited resources, relying on closed-loop nutrient models and solar panels. Freya worked with International Cannabis Farmers Association (ICFA), to empower and advocate for traditional small-scale cannabis farmers. Inspired by their brother, Ben Dobson’s successful hemp harvest at Old Mud Creek Farm in fall 2017, Freya and Melany moved back to New York, where the siblings co-founded Hudson Hemp and Treaty.
