026: The Innate Wisdom of The Human Body – Shawna Peters

On this episode, Shawna Peters and Nathan talk about the innate wisdom of the human body and the BodyTalk System. We explore what it means to be in touch with the incredible primal and higher nature of ourselves which allows us to live a healthy life.

Shawna describes herself as an explorer of both the inner and outer world. She was born in Canada and now resides in Costa Rica. There she has explored her inner life, the emotional and spiritual aspects, to gain a better life for herself.

Originally, Shawna was trained for and received a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling. Combining the knowledge from her degree with the BodyTalk System, she has begun helping patients and clients reconnect with and trust in the wisdom of the body. Shawna expresses how choosing to follow the wisdom of her body seemed like a huge risk, but now she knows it to be the wisest thing she has have ever done.

Throughout the episode they dive deep into this alternative type of medicine which is gaining a lot of attention. With the increased focus on meditation and mental health, healing modalities like the ones Shawna and Nathan talk about will gain much more attention and importance.

We are excited to bring to you this episode and encourage you to learn more about Shawna and her work at her website (theshelteringyew.com), Twitter, or on LinkedIn.
