Long time friends Vanessa Scotto and Brooke Thomas are having conversations about being spiritual practitioners in the modern world. How do you find sacredness in today's materialistic society? Is there a place for psychology in the realm of spirituality? Can embodied meditation lead to greater evolution? How do we ultimately embrace more aliveness- all the beauty and crazy, the joys and messes, the bliss and the grit that is a human life? Join us as we feel our way through the path by integrating somatic practices, psychology, spirituality, and transformation through meditation.

Holy Cow! Holy Mackerel! Holy Moly! Holy Smoke! Holy Sh*t! YESSS!

It is a pleasure to listen to Brooke and Vanessa who possess such luminous minds, depth of life experience, and warm, generous voices that ears enjoy. The integration and synthesis of many fields of study (world religion, spirituality, bodywork, psychotherapy) make the podcast satisfying on an intellectual level. Candid, personal stories, shared with vulnerability and authenticity make it satisfying on a soul level. The episodes ultimately fill a hunger to be a part of rare conversations about the nature of life and what it means to be human. The insights, resources and references that Brooke and Vanessa share are invaluable and add richness to my work in the field of somatics and to my own personal journey.


I often sigh, laugh, gasp aloud, and even weep in recognition of myself in your intimate discussions of the meaning and sometimes mess of figuring out how to be yourself in the world. Thank you for your candor, vulnerability, and assurances. You have brought me relief and given me a place - alongside you and within myself - as few things ever have.

Thank you

I cannot write with the amount of vigor I have in my heart. No words could contain how much I love this show. I have always been interested in the process of awakening, becoming more self-aware and consciousness. I have been having very difficult and uncomfortable moments in my process and this show has provided solace and a feel of community. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
