It’s an absolute honour to bring you this episode of the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast with none other than Mastin Kipp. Mastin is one of the greatest thought leaders of our time, and this was recognised by his mention in Oprah’s SuperSoul100.
It’s no surprise then, that this episode is medicine for the soul. Mastin lets us in on his practical approach to healing our trauma, and how we can use it to elevate ourselves and those around us. He defines exactly what trauma looks like (spoiler: it doesn’t always come with a capital T!), and we mix the spiritual with science to dig deep and discover the ways in which it can show up for us in life.
We chat ancestral trauma, collective trauma, attachment styles, addiction, psychological disorders, and psychedelics for integration of trauma healing. As well as all this, Mastin explains where such trauma is stored in the physical body and how to release it. We riff on relationships to define the difference between a triggering dynamic and a healthy, healing space for mutual growth, and share exactly how you can spot a healing partner from a toxic one.
Mastin also reveals how we can reshape and deshame limiting beliefs, to create rapid transformation and live a happier, healthier life with purpose. He believes committing to this work on ourselves can actually take us ‘beyond spiritual growth’. It’s practical magic – so this episode isn’t one to be missed!
