Reconnect with Your Deeper Self: The Embodied Present Process Explained

Shaking up the way we look at our self and the world, our guest Philip Shepherd documents how our culture systematically desensitizes our ability to sense the whole in his new book ‘Radical Wholeness: The Embodied Present and the Ordinary Grace of Being.’

Philip shares with us how each of us is whole, yet we are taught life works differently.

In this episode, he lays out a simple, practical way of undoing the divisions and compartmentalizations within us. You will:

~ Discover the profound healing intelligence of our body,

~ Uncover how to undo desensitization and return to living an experience of wholeness,

~ Unwrap how to find your way out of your head and reunite with your body’s intelligence,

~ Find ways to ground yourself in a wholeness-of-being that feels and supports the healing harmonies of life, plus much more…

Philip Shepherd is recognized as an international authority on ’embodiment.’ He travels the world teaching The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), a unique set of practices he developed for getting us out of our heads and reconnected with the profound intelligence of the body.

He is the author of two ground-breaking books, ‘New Self, New World: Recovering Our Senses in the Twenty-first Century,’ and the newly published ‘Radical Wholeness: The Embodied Present and the Ordinary Grace of Being.’ The books draw on a lifetime of research and experience and have been widely acclaimed for their original vision.

Helping Our Boys Navigate Emotions and Trauma with boy-expert Janet Allison

Wow, this fact, from the work of Michael Gurian, blew me away; “Anger is, by age 9, the default emotion for most boys,” according to Parenting expert Janet Allison! Add that to on-going research that continues to find mind-body connections between childhood stress and trauma and inflammatory responses, including those associated with autoimmune conditions, and parents and teachers need new strategies to help kids cope.

What if we could alleviate childhood stress and trauma before those damaging inflammatory responses? In this episode, we welcome Janet Allison, author, educator, speaker, and Family Coach. She has been advocating for boys for over 20 years! Combining her expertise in education, communication skills, and the social and biological differences between males and females, she helps parents and teachers understand their boys so that they can thrive at home and school. On this episode, Janet shares the answers to:

~ How boys process emotions differently than girls?
~ How subtle trauma adds up including subtle messages we send like ‘boys don’t cry,’ and why can’t you sit still?
~ How can we help our boys understand emotions in themselves and others?
~ How to use metaphor, imagery and physical activity to create emotional intelligence in our kids plus so much more…

Are Your Past Traumas and Coping Mechanisms Keeping You From Healing?

Are Your Past Traumas and Coping Mechanisms Keeping You From Healing?

After recovering from chronic fatigue and adrenal burnout and other health challenges, guest Carolin Hauser-Carson, Humanistic Psychotherapist, and author of the book ‘Blossom: 7 Steps to Sexual Healing’ now shares how to ‘integrate trauma and our magnificence’ to create a place of truly living and loving fully.

After reading ‘Blossom,’ your host for The Autoimmune Hour Sharon Sayler saw numerous parallels to healing from autoimmune too. In this episode, Sharon and Carolin chat about her ground-breaking book and her seven steps to sexual (and other) healing. We explore how the unconscious mind can keep us stuck in ill-health, plus Carolin will share:

~ How trauma is like lightning hitting your house, creating a “too big of charge for your body” and what to do to ‘reset,’

~ How to create ‘energetic cleansing’ to change your vibration and change your life

~ How understanding that a woman’s sexuality is more than physical can unleash your creativity, intuition, and happiness, plus much more…

Carolin Hauser-Carson is a renowned Energy Healer, Humanistic Psychotherapist with a large and successful practice that helps women step into their power. Carolin didn’t choose to become a Naturopathic Doctor, Family Constellations Practitioner, Humanistic Psychotherapist, Healer or Women’s Empowerment Expert solely out of professional interest. After suffering years of sexual abuse by those she trusted, she endured many years of chronic food addiction and eating disorders, a constant sense of alienation, autoimmune conditions, and self-destructive coping mechanisms. All too commonly adopted by women who have suffered from sexual abuse.

Carolin began her ‘Blossom Journey’ on the floor of her bathroom when she realized that binging and purging would eventually end her life and that the love she sought so desperately could never be hers unless she changed. Now, Carolin Hauser-Carson is serving a global audience, is married to her Divine Partner Paul and together they are committed to co-creating and advocating, for the well-being of all and to experience all that life has to offer.

Are you frustrated that change feels so hard? Do you wish that the messages you tell yourself could change their tune?

Make A Non-Toxic Home with expert Sharon McRill

While we work hard to restore our health, many things in our home environment can be working against our immune system. Many store-bought cleaning products, personal care, and cosmetics contain listed and even unlisted ingredients that can be highly toxic.

In this episode of The Autoimmune Hour, host Sharon Sayler welcomes Sharon McRill, founder, and president of The Betty Brigade, an Ann Arbor-based organization, and relocation company that is a leader in recycling while downsizing and cleaning with nontoxic alternatives.

Two weeks after turning 50, Sharon McRill was diagnosed with pulmonary embolisms in both lungs. She was put in an ICU and placed on blood thinners for 3 months after that. This was her wake up call that we are not always making great decisions for ourselves and doctors don’t have all the answers. She began exploring healthy alternatives to seasonal stuffiness, lack of sleep, mood swings and even simple remedies for headaches. Now Sharon has detoxed her home and has made huge switches in her own decisions in what goes on her skin and in her body.

She will share us how to keep toxins out of our home and how to make non-toxic cleaners and personal care products that work just as well and often even better including the two things you need to STOP using right now! I was surprised, and I know you will be too…
