42. Blending ancient wisdom and modern science using sound journeying with Paula Scatoloni
Today’s Therapy Wise guest is Paula Scatolini, a Clinical Social Worker with over three decades of experience in modern psychology, neuroscience and somatics. She is known for pioneering the use of modern acoustics to help shift the emotional, physical, mental, and energetic body towards health and resilience.   In this episode, we discuss:   Paula’s interesting career trajectory using both traditional and non-traditional methods of healing for eating disorders and trauma, including experiential methodologies, embodiment, conscious movement, touch therapies, Somatic Experiencing, sensorimotor psychotherapy and now, sound healing.   During COVID, she was unable to continue using touch therapy to heal developmental trauma and began using sound healing in her work. This became a key component of her work in healing early childhood attachment wounds and soothing the nervous system.   She began incorporating sound healing into her Somatic Experiencing work and then started to offer sound healing in group format online, as healing circles. She incorporates earth-based wisdom in her healing methodologies and found that this amplified the power of her work.   She works with therapists and mentors them to listen to their heart and experience their own embodied wisdom.   We explored the desire in therapists for retreat-based learning and the paradigm shifts happening there.   She described her perspective on the masculine and feminine archetypes in the world today and how the feminine is being re-awakened individually and collectively.   We explored the nature of wounded masculine and feminine and what healthy and healed dynamics would look like.   We discussed how sound healing and psychedelics both offer an opportunity to explore different states of consciousness.   She shared the different feelings in energy to the different places where she has lived.   We discussed how she handled the potential risks of offering treatments that are outside of the traditional methods as a regulated health professional.   Paula discussed the ways that she assists people through her services right now.   Enjoy!   ~ Dr. Jennie Ward   Connect with Paula:   Website: www.paulascatoloni.com   Facebook: Paula Scatoloni, Transformative Harmonics   Instagram: Paula Scatoloni   Connect with me:   Join my email list: https://wisdomportal.myflodesk.com/email   Apply to work with me: https://forms.gle/mJsUBHLCxcW3cZJv5   Website: www.wisdomportal.ca   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thewisdomportal/

In our discussion, we touch on topics that are the next level of the next level. Prepare yourself.   Victoria and I speak about:   How she helps those who know they are powerful souls step onto their true paths. She helps healers to develop their full capacity of spiritual gifts and assists them in building a thriving business doing so.   She describes her calling toward The Great Merge- a movement and mission for lightworkers to perform healing for the earth. We discuss how she met her guide, Te, who chose Victoria to steward this mission. We talk about this in depth…how Te channels through Victoria and Te’s teachings about the role of the elements, the constellations, the planets in healing the planet. We explore the selfless energy of this mission and the amount of trust that Victoria must engage for The Great Merge.   We explore how Victoria engages protection and how her vibration is not available for outside energy to come in.   We discuss the notion of greed and lack and how the planet is moving into an energy of more give and take and reciprocity.   We go into Victoria’s history as a performer, then a tarot reader and how she transitioned into doing the work she does now.   We also discuss Victoria’s relationship with her mentor and the unique way in which they work together. We explore how her mentor supports her in doing the work she’s meant to do in the world.   This was a powerful conversation!   ~ Dr. Jennie Ward   To connect with Victoria and join The Great Merge:   Website: www.victoriapippoinc.com   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/victoriapippo/   To connect with me:   Learn more about Your Majesty: https://www.wisdomportal.ca/yourmajesty   Apply for Your Majesty: https://forms.gle/4qkhHZpZsUDSMCRN9   Apply to work with me in the Mastery Paradigm: https://forms.gle/9YrukzKrQsjU5hARA   Website: www.wisdomportal.ca   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thewisdomportal/   Contact at info@wisdomportal.ca

24. Initiation through chaos and grief with Kaylyn Rutkowski
On today’s episode, I interview my friend Kaylyn Rutkowski, an embodiment facilitator, high priestess, somatic practitioner, and healer.   We explore the concept of initiation and how initiation experiences are pre-planned in our soul’s curriculum. Kaylyn describes the initiation that she has been going through in the past year, with the experience of suddenly leaving her job and shortly afterward facing the trauma of her dad’s murder.   We discuss the void season that Kaylyn has been in and the importance of giving oneself time to fully experience life’s challenges.   We get into Kaylyn’s gifts and offerings, including how she facilitates healing through somatic practices and pleasure.    So much wisdom in this episode!
