Clients often come to me wanting their insides and outside figure to match. They have confidence in certain areas of their life but also feel held back in at least one area of their life and their weight. In today’s episode, I dive deep with spiritual shadow diver L’Erin Alta to illuminate what bridges our spirit and body, why understanding our shadow and its discomfort is critical to spiritual healing (not just “love and light!”) and incredibly insightful tips and questions to ask yourself so you can grounded and safe in your spirit and body instead of using food to do a job it isn’t qualified to do.
L’Erin Alta is a soul guide, shadow diver and spiritual teacher known for burning down the stale, fluffy, boring “self-help” formulas and helping women ignite true personal liberation. Her workshops, retreats and 1-on-1 intensives have been called, “transformation temples for unruly, soulful women”.
She believes loss, grief and pain are healing initiations and if honored, they will fortify you, bringing you through the shadows into the light of your soul. Using movement, meditation, ritual, art and ancient practices, L’Erin guides women on a spiritual journey, helping them surrender their facades, shed their fears and finally come home to themselves.
If you were to read her resume, it would include Microsoft, non-profits large and small, as well as a 5-year stint as a MAC makeup artist. But what should really be there are the 23 countries where she’s studied healing in backwater ashrams, jungle temples and mountain monasteries, working with spiritual teachers, medicine women and shamans from many faiths and spiritual paths to learn about trauma, healing and transformation.
The essence of her work is distilled to freedom – supporting you in finding it, cultivating it, living it.
Because your power is in this moment. In this breath. In this one courageous, against-all-odds, bravely true…Yes.
