Welcome to Return to Wholeness, a podcast for women who previously believed in dogma; whether that’s religion, diets or ideology, who found that they needed to fragment themselves and live into the expectations of others in order to feel safe in that environment and truly belong.

Through powerful conversations, as well as my own personal musings, this podcast is intended to help you call back those fragmented parts of yourself so that you can integrate the fullness of who you are as a spiritual being, having a human experience (or is it the other way around).

In this space we love to explore the grey. The nuance. The complexity. Because this is where YOUR magic truly lies.

My name is Holly Toronto and I am an Embodiment Coach + Spiritual Mentor. I help women stop living their lives through the lens of other’s expectations of beauty, belief or behavior so that they can live their life from a place of Wholeness, fully aligned with the truth of who they are.

I’m so glad you’re here and I’m excited to explore these topics with you.

    Be sure to tune in to hear about what you can expect from RTW while I'm bonding with my baby and not releasing any new episodes.
     
    This week's interview with Mara Branscombe is so powerful as we delve deeply into what it means to live a ritualistic life.
     
    Here's what we discuss:
     
    Mara's experience of fragmentation that began with her "settling down" from her nomadic lifestyle to continue the family legacy of becoming a teacher and how she bravely went after her passions and dreams The origins of Mara's ritual practice Ritual as a daily practice vs something we engage in only during special occasions How ritual can be used in our own initiation and allow us to integrate and reflect, bringing us into deeper self awareness What might be possible if more and more human beings were engaging in regular ritual The power of interacting with the changing seasons and all 5 elements in ritual practice Soul care vs self care Mara's book that is coming out at the end of May which is now available to presale Ritual as Remedy Embodied Practices for Soul Care - such a generous offering and also lets us in on a bit of her process in writing a book

Holly has such a beautiful perspective of what wholeness means! She’s such a a beautiful host and really gets to know the guests (which benefits us all)!

Stacey Brass-Russell ,

Soulful, Honest and Brilliant

Holly is one of the most authentic, real and brilliant coaches out there. She elevates the conversation about "wholeness" and healing to come back to one's true self to a whole other level. What I love the most is how much joy Holly gets out of shining the light on others and their stories. Plus, she happens to be one of the funniest people around! Make sure you add this to your podcast rotation!!
