In this episode, we discuss how to connect with our innate gifts and thrive as Highly Sensitive People.As a Transpersonal Coach, I’m passionate about embodied transformation and helping those of us who are highly sensitive go beyond our conditioning and reconnect with our core Self. How do we go from knowing something intellectually to embodying it in the cells of our being? How do we live in alignment with the qualities of our innate essence – the truth of who we know ourselves to be? My work has led me to develop the HSH Integrative Model for Embodied Transformation, which encompasses eight domains for helping HSP thrive and step into their authentic gifts. Mastery in the eight domains enables us to navigate emotional overwhelm and step into our authentic power. I share the eight domains in this podcast episode.Jules De Vitto's Bio,  MAEd, MSc Certified Transpersonal Coach and EducatorJules De Vitto has a BSc in Psychology, MA in Education and MSc in Transpersonal Psychology, Consciousness and Spirituality.She is an accredited and certified Transpersonal Coach, Authentic-Self-Empowerment Facilitator, as well as an experienced teacher and educator.

In this episode, we discuss the potential connection between high sensitivity and spiritual awakening experiences. Jessica shares her recently published research 'Spontaneous Spiritual Awakenings: Phenomenology, Altered States, Individual Differences, and Well-Being'. We identify what spiritual awakening experiences are, the challenges that can come with these experiences as well as the positive long-term effects of spiritual awakening experiences. Jessica Corneille, MSc is a Research Psychologist specialising in spontaneous spiritual awakening experiences. She graduated with a Masters Degree in Psychology (Distinction) from the University of Greenwich, where she focused her studies on altered states of consciousness. With a passion to bridge the worlds of science and spirituality, her mission is to challenge the default pathologisation of awakening experiences by helping to inform and encourage mainstream psychology to look beyond the current designated spectrum of ‘normality’, to encompass the transpersonal as something that is intrinsic to the human experience. Jessica recently published her research on the phenomenology, individual differences and well-being effects of spontaneous spiritual awakenings with Dr David Luke, and has given a number of talks on her work, including with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

In this episode, based on Jules' background in Transpersonal Psychology and understanding of psychospiritual transformation - Jules share the perspective that experiences of trauma can often be a catalyst for our psychospiritual growth and awakening as Highly Sensitive People.Jules discusses how the traits of high sensitivity can mean HSP are more prone to the impact of their environment and dysregulation of our nervous system. Inspired by the teaching of Gabor Mate,  Bessel Van der Kolk, and Peter Levine she touches upon what Gabor refers to as the 'wisdom of trauma' and share how trauma, can result in a 'breaking open' and without negating the challenges. She share the perspective that trauma can move us closer to the divine and a connection with the spiritual; often resulting in awakening. She draws on the concept of the wounded healer and the importance of leaning towards, rather than moving away from our difficulties.Join the online 8-week course: Step into your Authentic Power as a Highly Sensitive Person This course offers 8-modules with an abundance of resources, meditations, workbooks, 1-1 and group coaching, community support as well as live workshops with guest experts! Spaces are now open for the next course starting March 7th, 2022.

In this episode, I speak to Nick Jellie who is a mentor and EFT practitioner for highly sensitive people experiencing social anxiety. Nick explains the theory behind the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), otherwise known as tapping, and how it can be used to combat anxiety for Highly Sensitive People. We talk about the importance of approaching our healing from a holistic perspective and how specific emotions and trauma are stored energetically within the physical body. EFT works to release these energetical blockages through tapping on meridians and draws on various theories of alternative and energy medicine.EFT Anxiety and the Highly Sensitive PersonNick Jellie is a mentor and EFT practitioner for highly sensitive people experiencing social anxiety. He holds an honours degree in psychology and is studying towards registration as a certified practitioner with EFT International. Nick experienced his own struggles with social anxiety for almost 10 years trying unsuccessfully to overcome his anxiety using a number of different methods.

In today’s episode, we explore the relationship between addiction and the highly sensitive person. Drawing on Marina’s journey and path of recovery and her training in compassionate inquiry with Dr Gabor Mate, we explore the definition of addiction outside of the mainstream medical model, and the subtle ways addiction can show up in our lives. We also discuss the 8-step recovery program, co-founded by Dr, Valerie Mason-John and Dr Paramabandhu Groves which uses Buddhist teachings to overcome addiction and which Marina is also trained in.  Finally, we explore and share our relationship with the wounded healer, and how it is our own wounds, trauma and challenges that propelled us on our healing path, and which eventually led us to coach, counsel and guide others on their journey of healing, recovery and transformation.About Marina...Marina specializes in alternative approaches to health, spirituality, and life in general.

We also touch upon our experiences of 'high sensation seeking' as highly sensitive people and the often contrasting nature of those of us who are highly sensitive but also seek out adventure, travel and the desire to create a lifestyle that is often fueled by change, challenge and creativity. About Emma...Emma Donovan, MA, LPC, is the founder of Alternative Therapy STL, where she helps people in their 20s and 30s along their journey of healing, growth, and transformation.

In this short episode, I share the perspective that high sensitivity cannot be explained due to innate traits or genetic alone, but we need to consider the impact that our environment has on how our sensitivity is expressed.  I also propose that our sensitivity is linked to our individual soul's purpose. I briefly introduce some of the theories that have inspired my work, such as Bruce Lipton's work on epigenetics which takes up away from the idea that we're simply biochemical machines to understand that we are very powerful in creating and unfolding the lives that we lead. I share the idea that we have a soul purpose and highly sensitive people have unique and amazing gifts to share with the world.  More about your host, Jules De Vitto...Jules De Vitto is a transpersonal orientated coach and educator who is experienced at helping Highly Sensitive People overcome anxiety, stress and burnout. Jules is Highly Sensitive herself and is also passionate about helping Highly Sensitive People to step into their authentic power and align with their true purpose in life.

In this episode, I talk with author and coach Willian Allen who has recently published his first book Confessions of a Sensitive Man, An Unconventional Defense of Sensitive Men. We explore what it means to be highly sensitive and the challenges faced by highly sensitive men. We also explore the importance of finding balance between the masculine and feminine polarities of ourselves and the evolving nature of what it means to be a man in current society. William shares the inspiration behind his blog, The Highly Sensitive Man and how this blog led to the formation of his new book.About William Allen…William Allen is a first-time author with a writer’s heart and researcher’s mind. After getting a degree in Psychology with an eye on doing psychological research, he recalibrated for a career in Information Technology. He found himself in a thirty-year career as an Information Technology manager at Wells Fargo who enjoyed managing highly intelligent, often difficult staff, many of whom were highly sensitive.He retired early from his corporate job to found his Hypno-coaching and neurofeedback brain training business, BrainPilots, in Bend, Oregon. While in Bend, he co-organized the area’s first Introvert/Highly Sensitive Person discussion group. In late 2016, he began his blog, The Sensitive Man, about his experiences, as a highly sensitive man. The blog became the genesis of his book, Confessions of a Sensitive Man. He feels that Highly Sensitive Men need to take their keen insights and intuition and make them public. He would like to shed more light on highly sensitive men and the much-needed role they need to take in our society. Stay in touch with William Allen Website:  www.thesensitiveman.comAuthor of Confessions of a Sensitive Man, An Unconventional Defense of Sensitive MenMore about your host, Jules De Vitto....
