Episode Description

How is that someone with a split personality can have medically proven diabetes in one personality, and be perfectly healthy in an other? Why does the placebo effect work? What’s the one thing we can do to ensure that we stay sick? How does a healthy sex life create better health outcomes? Why are purpose, passion, creativity, and happiness just as important (or maybe even more important) than eating well and exercising when it comes to our health? How can we get to the actual root of our disease and heal? Join Sweigh Spilkin, as she interviews health pioneer Dr. Lissa Rankin in this in-depth exploration of how we can use our minds to heal our bodies.

Thresholds to Awakening

Thresholds to Awakening

Archives Available on VoiceAmerica 7th Wave Channel

You are here for a reason. What you perceive to be a mistake (your pain, your suffering, your illness) is not a mistake at all. It is a radical opportunity to crack open, catalyze your potential, and embody your soul. An opportunity you would have never consciously chosen, but something has led you here: to the Threshold. The purpose at the Threshold is not simply to “get better,” the purpose is to allow yourself to be initiated. To let go of who you thought you were, so that who you really are can emerge.

Hosted by Sweigh Emily Spilkin, seasoned psychotherapist and soul guide, Thresholds to Awakening offers a deep-dive into the paradoxical nature of transformation. The show includes intimate conversations with spiritual luminaries about how to work with difficulty, stories about people finding their way through impossible situations, and transformational guidance to help you access your deepest truth.

Sweigh Emily Spilkin, MA, MFA, CHT

Sweigh Emily Spilkin, MA, MFA, CHT, is a somatic psychotherapist, teacher, and soon to be-"doctor" (working on that PhD!) of Psychology and soul-centered growth. She helps individuals use their life challenges as gateways to realizing their souls’ potential. Sweigh has a thriving psychotherapy and coaching practice where she combines cutting-edge somatic techniques with grounded, spiritual wisdom to help people reframe their challenges, reclaim their power, and fully embody their souls.

Sweigh’s background includes two Masters degrees, a three-year Somatic Experiencing™ trauma resolution training, a five-year embodied energy work training, and extensive education in nature-based soul work.

Her greatest teacher, however, was her own bout with a chronic illness that left her nearly housebound for four years. After much patience, surrender, grieving, soul-work, nervous system healing, will, and grace, Sweigh emerged from the “underworld” of her illness with her soul intact. She now serves as a guide and a source of inspiration for others on the path. Sweigh can be found on the web at www.ThresholdstoAwakening.com and www.EmbodyYourSoul.com.
