It was probably about a year ago that I first heard of Sophie Trew. It was a patient on a Facebook group (Sarcoma Patients Exploring Integrative Medicine) who told me about Trew Fields Festival and recommended I connect with Sophie, and earlier this year I interviewed her for this blog (see our interview in May here).
This weekend past was Trew Fields season #3 and I went along to learn and connect and soak up the atmosphere, but what I wasn’t prepared for was the big shifts I’d have personally. More about that later.
