    Spiritual Awakening Experiences and The Highly Sensitive Person

    Spiritual Awakening Experiences and The Highly Sensitive Person

    In this episode, we discuss the potential connection between high sensitivity and spiritual awakening experiences. Jessica shares her recently published research 'Spontaneous Spiritual Awakenings: Phenomenology, Altered States, Individual Differences, and Well-Being'. We identify what spiritual awakening experiences are, the challenges that can come with these experiences as well as the positive long-term effects of spiritual awakening experiences. 


    Jessica Corneille, MSc is a Research Psychologist specialising in spontaneous spiritual awakening experiences. She graduated with a Masters Degree in Psychology (Distinction) from the University of Greenwich, where she focused her studies on altered states of consciousness. With a passion to bridge the worlds of science and spirituality, her mission is to challenge the default pathologisation of awakening experiences by helping to inform and encourage mainstream psychology to look beyond the current designated spectrum of ‘normality’, to encompass the transpersonal as something that is intrinsic to the human experience. 

    Jessica recently published her research on the phenomenology, individual differences and well-being effects of spontaneous spiritual awakenings with Dr David Luke, and has given a number of talks on her work, including with the British Psychological Society (BPS). She works for the Scientific and Medical Network and Galileo Commission, is a collaborator of the Emergent Phenomenology Research Consortium and Spiritual Crisis Network, and is a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher.

    Trauma and Awakening as a Highly Sensitive Person

    Trauma and Awakening as a Highly Sensitive Person

    In this episode, based on Jules' background in Transpersonal Psychology and understanding of psychospiritual transformation - Jules share the perspective that experiences of trauma can often be a catalyst for our psychospiritual growth and awakening as Highly Sensitive People.

    Jules discusses how the traits of high sensitivity can mean HSP are more prone to the impact of their environment and dysregulation of our nervous system.

    Inspired by the teaching of Gabor Mate,  Bessel Van der Kolk, and Peter Levine she touches upon what Gabor refers to as the 'wisdom of trauma' and share how trauma, can result in a 'breaking open' and without negating the challenges. She share the perspective that trauma can move us closer to the divine and a connection with the spiritual; often resulting in awakening. She draws on the concept of the wounded healer and the importance of leaning towards, rather than moving away from our difficulties.

    A Spiritual Perspective on The Highly Sensitive Person with Jules De Vitto

    A Spiritual Perspective on The Highly Sensitive Person with Jules De Vitto

    In this episode, we explore the traits of high sensitivity from a transpersonal and holistic perspective.

    Are you a highly sensitive person, and are you drawn towards a spiritual path? Have your struggles as a highly sensitive person led you onto a path of significant healing and growth?

    From my personal experience and professional work as a coach, I have understood that being highly sensitive has a purpose that goes beyond evolutionary advantages. In other words - being highly sensitive isn't only an adaptive trait that has evolved for our survival, but sensitivity is connected to an innate soul purpose which, for many highly sensitive people, is related to a desire to heal and help ourselves and others...

Wow.

I’m joining the chorus of others writing in about how life changing this podcast is and how profound it is to learn and name what it means to be an HSP. For the first time in my life, I feel like I actually have a framework for struggles that have felt somehow both huge and hidden. Thank you so much for this work.

EritreaG ,

Validating

I feel seen, heard and well understood. It’s one thing to follow Instagram accounts dedicated to informing about being an HSP but to supplement it with a podcast? That is fantastic and so validating. Thank you for sharing this much sought after resource with us!

Emmaghghgh ,

Perfect!

As a highly sensitive person, this podcast is so so helpful! I particularly enjoyed the episode in managing emotions. Thanks Jules!
