Welcome to Getting to Know Woo! I’m Natasha Levinger, a professional intuitive reader, energy healer and inner child healing expert. After being raised with extreme narcissism, I found talk therapy was helpful, but it wasn’t until I found energy and inner child healing that I was able to break free of family patterns that cut me off from knowing and loving my true self. I’m passionate about dispelling the rhetoric that these kinds of tools are impractical and ineffective. In this podcast I will be sharing just how beneficial and transformative they are. My husband and producer, Brett, will be joining me in conversation, and we’ll be welcoming experts along the way. I’m excited to have you here!

BStang! ,

So grounding - but also so fun!!

Listening to Natasha and Brett is like spending time with some of my favorite people - so goofy and so relaxed EVEN WITH the ever-present potential for expansion and that soul-deep *ding!* I’ve been listening since Natasha was on Magic Mondays, and even if I miss the pizzazz of her back and forth with Tess Whitehurst, Brett is the perfect counterpoint. So happy to have you in my feed!

soggydesertrat ,

Must listen!

Can’t wait for every episode, so absorbing and enlightening! 10/10 recommend!

Humbly Learning ,

It’s woonderful!

The universe brought this podcast to my world several weeks ago and I’ve binged every episode! The dialogue between Brett and Natasha is so open and real it’s a delight to listen to, I feel like I’m sitting across the table sipping coffee with good fiends when I’m listening. Many of the topics covered are things I’ve only now contemplated as an adult after walking though some serious relational trauma. To be honest even though I’m curious it’s hard to shake the so much of the cultural baggage I have around these ideas and struggle to know where I land as I learn to trust my own intuition and toss the fear of the unknown aside. But the topics are handled with humor, love, and a way that makes it easy to stay curious. I really appreciate Brett’s story of his own skepticism and religious trauma and how these ideas have opened him up to a joyful new world of discovery. I relate to Natasha on many levels when it comes to working though wounds inflicted to our inner child by those who should have been safe- and her joy and willingness to share her healing journey brings hope. Even if you don’t know what you think about all things woo- this podcast is definitely a great, non-intimidating place to learn and grow your perspective with some people who are delightful to listen to!
