Jordan Younger and Jenna Zoe are no strangers to the podcast—they’re Krista’s BFFs! As spiritual seekers, thoughtful leaders and curious souls themselves, the threesome talk about what it means to be in (and cultivate) authentic friendship.

Friends give us life, rejuvenating our essence. They’re there to celebrate one another’s success, question life’s mysteries and offer support when times are tough.

In this episode, Jordan, Jenna and Krista chat about the natural evolution of friendships, as seasons and people change. Plus, how to be a good friend—even if that means working through uncomfortable moments or feelings. Like any bestie convo, this episode is packed with relatable content, tons of advice and plenty of laughs.

“The Universe is never gonna give you something that you can’t handle because that’s just violating the rules of physics. And in Kabbalah, they say, ‘The solution is always created before the problem.’ So the agenda of the universe, to even give you the problem, is to lead you to the solution.” – Jenna Zoe, Almost 30 Podcast

We also talk about:

  • Supporting your friends’ growth
  • Checking in with your strong friends
  • Working through uncomfortable feelings
  • Helping your friends see their patterns
  • Living in your heart
  • Co-creating with the Universe
  • Not rushing your friends’ process
  • Hitting rock bottom
  • Inviting the truth
