In today’s episode, I’m joined by Susannah Stokes, co-founder of House of Embodied Metamorphosis, a 508c1a Faith-Based Organization that utilizes The Metamorphosis Method and psychedelics to facilitate powerful personal transformations.
Throughout our conversation, Susannah takes us on the journey from how she went serving in two combat tours in Afghanistan to reinventing herself as an embodied priestess with the aid of psychedelics. She explains how her experience in the Marine Corps ultimately launched her into her feminine empowerment activism.
We discuss the courageous process of letting go of old identities, and the ways in which the universe supports those that are willing to take big leaps of faith. We talk about what it means to borrow belief from other people that have already been through what you’re aiming for, and why our comfort zone is actually anything but comfortable.
Tune into today’s episode to get inspired by a living example of what embodied transformation could look like.
