Dr Stephania Sciamano is an Energy Surgeon devoted to Truth and Embodiment of Your Rich Genius.

She spent 9 years in private natural medicine practice before working exclusively with ambitious men and woman to increase Wealth, Vitality, and Energy in all its forms.

The successful clients who come into her practice are powerful experienced Healers, Creatives, and Magicians – yet the illusive cap on their success is frustrating the hell out of them.

She believes that powerful people experience a specific set of mental and physical symptoms at higher levels of success...which creates an energetic cap on their “Havingness”.

…and conventional solutions don’t work because they don’t address Wealth Consciousness, Masculine/Feminine Dynamics, the Dark Side of your Power, or how this relates to Genius. Her protocol assesses, arrests, and then reverses the slide!

Her clients calm their nerves, lose their mental slumps, become attractive again to themselves and their partners, and create reliable windfalls of cash – in their specific genius – without the crash.

In this show we spoke about the link between the body, pain, illness and emotions and how we can create the flow and fulfilment we ache for.

This week's show is with Kenny Mammarella-D'Cruz. Kenny was called "The Man Whisperer" by Newsweek because, not only does he help men achieve their life, relationship and career goals, he also helps men to be more authentically and powerfully who they truly are.

As one of the UK’s leading men’s personal development consultants, Kenny runs workshops and sees individuals and couples for private consultations and has been running men’s groups in London for 14 years. Kenny was traumatised at the age of seven when his family had to flee certain death at the hands of the brutal dictator Idi Amin and were resettled as refugees in rural Wales via refugee camps.

As a result of post-traumatic stress syndrome, Kenny developed several mental health issues, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette's syndrome, body dysmorphia and depression with intrusive and suicidal thoughts. Thankfully that’s all behind him now. When asked how he turned it all around, he’s fond of saying that he sat with the shadows that owned him, unlearned the untruths and turned that energy into the fuel to walk his path and live his purpose.

In this show we explored how to know ourselves, get into the feeling, how to stay in it, how to navigate the way forward into the next phase as things get dark. It's in the darkness that we find the gold.

In this show we spoke about how ancient Feminine archetypes can help us navigate this time of change and rupture as our known reality is breaking down. Those of us who have been through our own personal breakdowns and have already felt the call to embody these archetypes feel that we have an important part to play in expressing these archetypes in our own unique way.

This episode illuminates the path that some us are already treading and how we can hold ourselves through this intense experience.

Dr. Carolyn Elliott has helped thousands of people dramatically change their lives for the better via her online programs and private coaching.  She's done this through using applied Hermetic philosophy, ritual magic, and a cutting-edge twist on Jungian psychology.  She's the author of the rising new phenomenal book Existential Kink: unmask your shadow and embrace your power (Weiser, 2020) and the cult-favourite creativity handbook, Awaken Your Genius.
 
Dr. Elliott currently co-leads WEALTH with her husband, ninjutsu expert and rune magician, Taia Kheper.  WEALTH is an exclusive, application-only membership where leaders and influencers come into their full power via the alchemy of the psyche and hilarious and sexy social games. She also leads Game of Sovereigns, an Existential Kink Coach Training and Certification program.  She earned her doctorate in Critical and Cultural Studies from the University of Pittsburgh where she taught for 7 years, and currently resides in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her family.

In this show, a follow-up to the last amazing episode with Carolyn, we explored how our kinks relate to childhood trauma, when we're best served by healing our wounds rather than moving straight into discovering the kinky pleasure in the things we have in our lives that we say we don't want and how all of this relates to seeing how we can live as the ultimate creator of our lives.

This was just as much a juicy episode as the last one with Carolyn - which is saying a lot!

This week is a one-off show, which is a recording of a fb Live I did for the Primal Happiness fb group in answer to a question I was asked about the role of feelings, particularly when you’ve come from a non-duality spiritual path, such as the 3Ps, which is often heavily focused on the role of Thought. I covered...

  • Feelings, emotions and sensations
  • Spirit vs soul
  • Anxiety vs sadness
  • Embodiment (inc. Masculine & Feminine)
  • Archetypes and activations
  • Ascension vs descension

With a background in relational work, partnered meditation, mindful business training and classical philosophy, his work today centres around the interplay between ancient wisdom and modern practicality. A very happy husband, he lives in Costa Rica with his wife, in a small town where the jungle meets the sea.

In this show we spoke about personal artistry, how we can bring an energetic of our unique inner embodiment to any practice, how we might discover that, what it feels like. We also spoke about having a personal blueprint and how to distinguish between resistance that shows up with an edge that's aligned for you vs something that's scary but not for you.

This was such a fascinating episode... those of you who have been practising artists, musicians or martial artists will find this particularly interesting but I believe it's incredibly helpful regardless.

This week's show is with Mike Fairclough, Mike has been the Headteacher of West Rise Junior School, in Eastbourne, UK, since 2004. Over the years, Mike has introduced many educational initiatives to the school, which have received national and international acclaim. These include setting up a student run art studio, called “Room 13” and running a school farm, populated by a herd of Asian water buffaloes, honey bees, sheep, ducks and chickens. The school manages 120 acres of marshland, on which the children engage with nature, light fires, learn basic survival skills, go fishing, paddle-boarding and learn beekeeping. The field of Positive psychology and character education underpin the work of the school. Mike is the author of “Playing With Fire” (embracing Risk and Danger in Schools). His second book “Wild Thing” (embracing childhood traits for a happier, more carefree life), is a self-help book for adults and is out later this year.

In this show we spoke about how parents can embrace the philosophy of adventure, risk and play in our own lives and those of our children. And how this can still happen within the current context of the changes brought about by corona virus.

As a parent of school-aged children, I found this such a reassuring and helpful episode. I hope you do too.

This week's show is with Ya’Acov Darling Khan, the author of the best-selling Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart and Shaman – is known for his blend of strength, humility and humour.

Travelling the world to work with groups delivering Movement Medicine, Ya’Acov has spoken to audiences across the globe at some on the most pre-eminent platforms driving the transformation of world culture and sustainability.

Ya’Acov’s message of Shamanism, and a shift from society’s focus on acquisition to reciprocity, is the key to restoring our universal connection and solving our interpersonal and world issues in the process.

His 33-year marriage and partnership with ‘Movement Medicine Woman’ and wife, Susannah, with whom he is Co-Director of The School of Movement medicine and Co-Author of Hay House published Movement Medicine, forms the loving foundation and union for a life dedicated to the transformation of our world.

In this show, Ya’Acov and I explored such gorgeously rich ground and so timely for our current rupture of Corona Virus and the events following the murder of George Floyd. We talked about the invitation these events have created to step into the unknown of the unconscious. The reactivity of our nervous systems and how fear gets in the way of us being able to be open in the enquiry of the unknown, and lastly how we can create the embodied safety to journey into that dark but rich territory.

This was one of my favourite shows... Ya’Acov is one wise and grounded man. This was real medicine for me and I hope for you too.

John is a Breakthrough Coach, speaker and researcher based in the UK.  He has over 16 years’ experience working with clients internationally, providing both personal and corporate coaching, training and mentorship services. John has learned from some of the top success and performance coaches in the world, studying and exploring what enables us to really be at our best, to help guide his clients to make their own breakthroughs.

The transformations John witnesses, are often life changing, as clients gain a deeper understanding of how their minds work, enabling them to experience a healthier, happier, more successful and creative life. John has a speciality for helping people with various chronic health conditions – a by product of his own healing journey from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It was this healing journey that led him to conduct a research study to demonstrate the transformative effects of this approach for other sufferers of CFS. The study has now been accepted for publication in an American Psychological Association journal after a full peer review process. Described by the Journal editor as “ground-breaking”, the study results provide further empirical evidence for the efficacy of Three Principles to help individuals find greater mental and physical health.

In this show we explore what John and I have seen is the real power behind transformation and healing work. John shared his experiences from his years of work supporting people with chronic health conditions and his own healing journey, and I shared what I've seen about my own recovery from chronic pain.

We realised after we finished recording, we wanted to emphasise that in no way are either of us saying 'it's all in the mind' or blaming people for their struggles. We both see this with deep compassion and empathy and only hope to provide some illumination on the things we've seen can help free people from the grip of chronic conditions.

This week's show is with Tad Hargrave. Tad is a hippy who developed a knack for marketing (and then learned how to be a hippy again). Despite years in the non-profit and activist world, he finally had to admit he was a marketing nerd and, in the end, he became a marketing coach for hippies. Maybe it was because he couldn’t stand seeing his hippy friends struggle to promote their amazing, green and holistic projects. Maybe it was because he couldn’t keep a 9-5 job to save his life. Whatever the reason, for almost a decade, he has been touring his marketing workshops around Canada, bringing refreshing and unorthodox ideas to conscious entrepreneurs and green businesses that help them grow their organizations and businesses (without selling their souls). He has also offered most of his workshops on a modified pay what you can basis (a small deposit to attend and then people choose the amount they want to pay at the very end). This all feels like a minor miracle as Tad spent his early marketing days learning and applying some very inauthentic, high pressure, extremely gross and pushy marketing approaches. This has made him suuuuper allergic to these kinds of approaches because he discovered they made him feel slimy (even in personal friendships), he didn’t sleep well and he’s very sorry to all those people he spoke with back in the day. After a decade of unlearning and unpacking that whole scene – he now feels ready and able to help other people find ways to market that feel wonderful. In this show, we spoke about how spending the time distilling your point of you allows you to do business in a way that feels in alignment, ethical and allows people to understand whether they're a good fit for what you offer. Jonathan and I have recently been using Tad's methodology to develop our own point of view and have found it unbelievably helpful. If you're in any kind of business, I believe you'll find this episode an incredibly good use of your time.

This week's show is with Kate Joyner. Kate is a Nature Based Soul Guide, Deep Feminine Facilitator and Experimental Actress, guiding the way for the remembrance of Eros as the antidotal medicine for our troubled times. Her work echoes the call of an elemental need for initiatory pathways that allow us to come into intimate relationship with Body, Earth and Soul so that we can create a culture seeded in wildness and love. Her passion for the revolution seeps into all of her offerings, be it through her mentorships, women's journey's, theatre shows or her poetic immersions, you'll be brought to the life that lies on the edge, where the magic happens. 

In this show, we spoke about descending to the soul vs ascension to spirit, the sacred wound - and how in this culture we'll typically we can pathologise our conditions rather than see them as an invitation into myth and soul.

This was a gorgeously deep episode - I loved it!

This week's show is with Jess Heading. Jess is a Life and Leadership Coach who supports women to heal their relationship with their bodies, reconnect with their inner wisdom and unleash their radiant essence. Jess grew up hating her body and suffered from binge eating disorder and bulimia for fifteen years. Having reclaimed trust in her body’s wisdom and signals, and learned to partner with her body instead of controlling it, supporting other women on their journey to body acceptance and trust is now a key element of Jess’ coaching work. Jess sees again and again the immense transformation that occurs when a woman lives in deep partnership with her body: * She frees up SO MUCH time and energy * She sizzles with innate creativity, wisdom and femininity * She owns her Goddess power, fully and without apology * She creates amazing, much-needed change in the world In this show, Jess and I spoke about the way this rupture has created an increasing trend of turning to emotional comfort eating, the primal fear of there not being enough food (created by the sight of empty shelves), simultaneously there's this collective panic about what our bodies will look like at the end of this. These are all things that are present at any time, but just like with so many other things, this is being illuminated in these times. How do we maintain a good body image during this time? And how do we not shame ourselves for using food as a soother? This was such a loving, wise and helpful show - well worth listening to at any time but especially now.

She’s passionate about helping parents raise children who are whole, as well as helping them shed what’s in their way of living from a place of wholeness.

In this conversation, we spoke about how to manage life as parents with children at home at this time, the importance of taking a long term perspective of our family's health and happiness, causing as little damage as possible, and how to create more love and harmony in these strange times. I'm so happy to have co-created this with Eliane - I believe it's going to be so hopeful and helpful to so many of us at this time (and maybe beyond too).

This week's show is with Daniel Fox. Daniel Fox founded what became an 8-figure business with hundreds of employees only to find himself purposeless and disconnected from his passion, personal transformation. Practicing for over 12 years, he now coaches committed world-changers to turn their passions into thriving and fulfilling careers.

In this show, we spoke about how worldviews (or value-stages) are hierarchical, from survival and tribal views to post modern and beyond. We explored what each value-stage is about, how to understand and bridge the gap with people who are at each stage, how to lead and communicate with them with the aim of creating unity and empathy and ultimately the changes and expansion we want to see in the world.
 
This is especially relevant at this time, when many people are experiencing safety and security needs and are therefore going to be more present to lower levels on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and are therefore at a lower value-stage at the moment.
 
If you're anyone who wants to create more meaningful, intimate connection with (especially if you're any kind of leader or change-worker) being present to other's current value-stage will make us so much more effective at meeting them where they're at.

In this show, we spoke about the challenges we're seeing in the leaders around us in these times... working from home, maybe around children who are off school, dealing with numerous personal and business struggles including money concerns... so they're doing all that as well as leading a team.

Elizabeth and I spoke about what we've seen about the adaptive leadership needed in these times... and specifically the three elements that we need to embody... being, vision and action.

This week's show is with Dominic Scaffidi, Dominic’s purpose is to inspire greatness.  He is committed to people and organizations being extraordinary and producing extraordinary results. 

Dominic has coached executives and senior leaders in a variety of organizations as they take on challenges including new roles, goals, dealing with significant change/transition and new projects.  He helps leaders engage the full potential of their people to achieve unprecedented performance.  His approach is to engage with leaders through intentional conversations that cause them to generate new thinking, create new strategies and produce new actions in areas that are most important.

In this show, we spoke about how we can be powerful creators of our lives, even and especially in these strange times of change and challenge. We explored some of my own personal examples of creation and then Dominic broke down the laws or principles that he sees were at play. We went into such deep, magical and spiritual realms... it was a really enjoyable, helpful and inspiring episode to create - I really hope you get as much from it as I did.

This week's show is with Eliane Sainte-Marie, the founder of Parenting for Wholeness, creator of the acclaimed Clean Parenting Program where she guides parents in experiencing the ease and harmony she promises is possible in families, author of the book Clean Parenting: the Peaceful Parent’s Essential Handbook, and mother to three wonderful adult daughters. She’s passionate about helping parents raise children who are whole, as well as helping them shed what’s in their way of living from a place of wholeness.

In this conversation, we spoke about the hot topic of children and their use of technology! This is a perfectly timed, though unplanned, follow-up to last week's episode about technology! We explored the foundation of parenting from a vision of raising children to grow into healthy, happy adults, how to tune into what's right for you and your family, how to handle problems that arise from your child's use of technology, and lastly, some simple guiding principles when it comes to parenting.

This was one of those episodes I was so delighted to co-create, I know it's one I'll keep referring back to and sharing with my friends and family who are asking for support on topic.

This week's show is with Dr Kristen Race, a bestselling author, Head of Mindfulness for Solvasa™, and Founder of Mindful Life™. A world-renowned expert in the field of mindfulness, Kristen’s programs and services are rooted in neuroscience and designed to build resilience to modern day stress. As a business owner and mother of two teenagers, Kristen understands that life is busy!

She focuses her work on making mindfulness practices accessible and easily incorporated into our daily lives.  Instead of chasing the elusive goal of work / life balance, she creates simple exercises to bring balance to our brains.  Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA TODAY and CNN, to name a few. She is a two-time TEDx speaker and has trained over 50,000 leaders in her methods worldwide.

In today’s show we spoke about the changing world and how we've ended up as a species dealing with a brand new challenge and probably our biggest one in our history: our relationship to technology, and specifically our digital devices. We explored the terrain of today's world, the potentially harmful effects on the brain, the addictive nature of tech and how you can reclaim your sovereignty and choose to use your mobile device from a conscious place.

I wasn't expecting to find this show as interesting as I did, so don't worry if you're not into mindfulness or neuroscience, if you're a human who has a phone and is interested in living in an aligned and wild way, I think you'll find this a very useful episode.

This week's show is with my fourth-time guest, the amazing James Tripp, an internationally recognised and respected educator, consultant and coach in the fields of personal transformation, hypnosis, influential communication and personal efficacy. Working from an eclectic background including philosophy, music, mentalism, martial arts, movement culture and NLP, James is also the developer of the critically acclaimed Hypnosis Without Trance approach to hypnosis.

Beyond his work with private clients, James runs open workshops internationally, with his London and UK based workshops typically drawing students from around the world.

In today’s show we spoke about something that's very much alive for both of us... you could call that working with magic or non-linear ways of being. This is a way of living in which we co-create with the complex world around us, knowing we can't control how things unfold and yet still creating towards a vision or intention. Even that this was the topic of the show and then the way the conversation unfolded was a perfect example of that.

As ever, this show with James was so timely for me and went very deep. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did co-creating it with him!

Hello my beautiful people! A huge warm welcome back to the show.

 

In today’s crazy modern world, men and women are living shallow, disconnected and unfulfilling lives. So we created the path for those who are ready, to reclaim their wildness and actualise their deepest gifts.

 

If you’re a man and

  • your life is lacking real purpose and meaning (you may not know what it is but you feel deep down that you’re here for something more… something bigger, bolder, heart-felt and soul-led)
  • you’re feeling isolated, lonely and lacking the support and mentorship of men who really get you (and this only grows with each year that passes)



If you’re a woman and

  • your body is calling to you to listen to her (she calls in many ways… pain, shame, numbness, tension and sometimes a clear “Yes, this way.”)
  • you’re so over trying to do and have it all, whilst feeling more worn out and less fulfilled (it *is* possible to live a rich, full life but it rarely happens through being the ‘nice girl’ or the ‘ball breaker’)



If you resonated with any of those, then first of all, I hear you. You’re really not alone, we keep seeing this in the men and women around us, even ones who are a way along their personal growth or spiritual paths, and that’s we created Waking The Wild F and M.

 

They’re potent circles to support you in discovering your soul path and expressing your heart’s truth whilst being fully seen and held by a circle of your fellow men or women. It really is the most powerful, activating magic we know of! 

 

You can let us know you’re feeling the call to either of those by going along to either primalhappiness.co/wtwf for Waking The Wild Feminine or primalhappiness.co/wtwm for Waking The Wild Masculine. 

 

If these are calling to you then we look forward to seeing you in circle soon.

 

And now onto this week's show, it’s with Joshua FalconCrest, Joshua is a leadership development trainer, filmmaker, author, and speaker. He loves using story and technology to assist people in remembering their true nature.

He’s the creator of DaoPlay – an intuitively guided role-playing experience designed to escort people through their own personal “movie scenes” – the very situations they need to experience in order to release the past and to reclaim their personal power. 

In this week's show, Joshua and I explored the topic of relating to our inner child as the same as relating to our bodies. The power of opening the pockets of shame created by trauma and how we can enter into this work in a deeply nurturing and impactful way.

This was such a deep and complex show but with profoundly simple and practical takeaways, I hope you take as much away from it as i did.

Let’s dive in!

This week's show is with Shannon Major, Shannon is a Feminine Power Relationship coach who is passionately dedicated to supporting women in feeling more safe and desired in their intimate relationship with others and self. Shannon's work focuses on healing the repression of the Feminine to awaken humanity's connection to erotic aliveness and spirituality.

In this week's show, Shannon explored how we can choose into being in relationship in a wild and vulnerable way that allows us to use the relationship as a portal to understanding our gifts and our shadows more deeply and from there to create the soulful expansion you desire.

This week's show is with Siân Marie Pilkington, a woman of wordcraft, mother to four, deep rooted energy worker, herbalist, birth attendant, retreat facilitator, and a community creator. In her own words "I honoured the medicine of The Mother by hearing + following the call to become a birth worker + with every child that I witness be born, whether to stay or to leave + with every lesson I learn about the ignorance of patriarchy in a goddess’ birthing space + with every autonomous decision for a woman to roar and catch her own child + the angels that I see guide souls down from the corner of the room, I found + find sacred rage + glowing holiness all at once. I learned how to meld + be a container not just for my offering of legacy but for the workings of women resisting the old paradigm as well as those who could see no way out."

In this week's show, Sian and I talked about rewilding pregnancy. Why this is what our culture needs right now and what it means on an individual and practical level for a woman wanting to walk this sacred path. I found this a deeply healing and inspiring episode despite having left the pregnancy stage of my life. This is something I think all of us would benefit from listening to, whatever stage of life we're in.

This week's show is with Amir Karkouti and it's a little different to our usual episode format. Amir is a Transformative Coach, a business owner, author, speaker, recovery centre volunteer, an old friend and someone who has been a guest on this show in it's early days - 5 years ago in fact! This was in our first evolution when this show was called The Born Happy Show and our focus was all about a spiritual teaching called the Three Principles, also known as the 3Ps.

This episode is particularly focused around the 3Ps but there will also be much of value here if you've walked any spiritual path.

The background to this episode is that I reached out to Amir inspired by a completely out-of-the-blue idea “What if Amir and I created a show about the 3Ps from the perspective of where we each are now on our paths...him: successfully living, teaching and coaching from a 3Ps understanding, and me: having had a huge transformation seven years ago thanks to the 3Ps, spending several years coaching and teaching from that understanding, and then subsequently having transitioned away onto other things?”

I knew that Amir was someone with a wide open mind and a huge heart, and was someone with whom I could co-create a deep and honest conversation about…

  • How we each see the 3Ps and the community
  • Our thoughts on the struggles and the disillusionment we see show up
  • Life after the 3Ps
  • Beyond all the dogma and controversy, the huge benefit we see in people ‘waking up’ via this path. 

This was recorded as a live webinar in Amir's group so you'll hear us take questions from our audience as well as all the other fun and games that happen on a live webinar!

If you've been on the 3Ps path... this episode answers all the questions you've been afraid to ask ;)
