Discovering Our Inner Wisdom: Beliefs, Inner-knowing and Our Well-being

Listen to “Discovering Our Inner Wisdom: Beliefs, Inner-knowing and Our Well-being” on Spreaker.

One of my favorite quotes from this week’s guest, Dr. Sondra Barrett, is, “I find myself asking questions — where does knowledge come from, how can we make it useful for healing. That is what a scientist does — asks questions and looks for answers.”

Dr. Barrett refers to herself as a ‘recovering scientist.’ With a Ph.D. in biochemistry, post-doctoral fellowship in immunology, and former faculty at the University of California Medical School, she veered off from mainstream medical research to people caring and mind-body healing education.

In this wide-ranging exploration of inner wisdom, we chat about healing beyond the physical to create more profound wellness and well-being. Her newest work goes back 40 years when she discovered, through the microscope, elemental sacred geometry in minerals associated with the Zodiac.

Dr. Barrett shares with us her research on elemental wisdom and symbolism plus
• What is inner-knowing, and how does it manifest in our well-being
• Can we talk to our higher-self and is it useful
• How breathing aids stress reduction and wellness
and the beauty of curiosity aligned with our inner “I wonder…”

More about our guest: Dr. Sondra Barrett has led support groups for people with cancer, immune illnesses, and heart disease, bringing together science, art, and the sacred. She now teaches various online classes, including ‘Lessening Stress,’ ‘Secrets of Your Cells’ book club, and ‘The Elemental Cell,’ the latter merges cell biology, nature, and elemental symbolic wisdom. Her Awakening Cellular Intelligence workshops have taken her around the globe, including China, Scotland, and Malta.

She is the author of several books, including the perennial favorite ‘Secrets of Your Cells: Discovering Your Body’s Inner Intelligence’ and the coauthor of ‘Ultimate Immunity’ with Elson Haas, MD.
