S2: E8 - Tapping into Yoga + Shamanism with Eddie Sullivan

Season #2 Episode #8

This is the last episode of Season 2!!!

Eddie was my yoga teacher until Covid happened! We had been planning a workshop together that we had to cancel and when we met to discuss it back in January 2020 he told me his life story. I knew then I had to get him on the podcast and share it with you all.

Learn how Eddie overcomes addiction, and how yoga was a gateway for reconnecting with his true self, how he found other modalities to help him on the journey also, such as Shamanism.

Key takeaways:

  • Eddies story and his initial block to yoga
  • How his bad relationships with drugs and self, and a very honest account of his rock bottom led him to alternative ways of being
  • How Bikram yoga was the start of his yoga journey
  • Yoga led Eddie to understand the spiritual aspects of himself
  •  How space gave him the opportunity to take responsibility for his life
  • Connecting to his feminine side, and letting go of the toxic masculinity he was conditioned to carry, was the key to finding his true self
  • What part of his divine feminine and divine masculine sides he leant into
  • Men’s talking circles and the realisation that men are all internalising things the same way
  • Eddie shares his journey to Shamanic healing training
  • Stopping and looking at the steppingstones of the journey can bring perspective, gratitude and understanding of your life
  • How to learn from the experiences we have in our lives – to see how they are all connected, what is this teaching us and where is it leading me
  • “Every footstep has a consequence”
  • How Eddie got excited about the opportunities Covid 19 brought to his family
  • Taking the heat out of the good and the bad – so to not get caught up in them
  • The witnessing of awakening over the past year or so, of people realising they didn’t want to go back to how things were and to do more of the things that make them feel good
