Honouring 2020 - Letting Go, Healing Deep & Growing Big with Tamu Thomas
Play • 1 hr 27 min

Welcome to the final Soul Surgery Podcast episode of 2020! This year has been unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, and I hope this podcast has provided you some refuge from the storm and a little soul nurturing.

I knew that I wanted this episode to go DEEP, and that I needed a guest who could uncover the valuable lessons we can take forward from the events of the past year. It is so important that we not only acknowledge the many obstacles we have all faced, but also take time to celebrate our wins and the moments of joy and connection. This is an opportunity for us to appreciate what we can learn from our biggest challenges, and how these shifts can contribute to  our evolution.

I couldn’t think of a better person to share this with than the incredible Tamu Thomas. Tamu is a somatic coach and entrepreneur as well as being a soulful, powerful, honest, heartfelt and truly authentic black woman.

It’s so important for us all to take the time to process and make sense of this crazy year and closeout 2020 with wholeness and completion. The intention being that we can move into the new year with an open heart and a feeling of peace and safety. In order to do this we must FEEL it all.

What we resist persists and what we don’t feel fully can become stuck in our hearts, bodies and souls. An integral part of ceremony is facing and honouring what has been so that we can then release what we have been holding on to that no longer serves us.

Learning how to ground ourselves, soften and bring awareness into our bodies is key for healing. When we are living from a place of survival we limit our opportunities for allowing this healing. We need to create space, stillness and drop much more deeply into our bodies.

Tamu and I share our own challenges from this year and how we have grown through them. If you can allow yourself to sit with your experiences  and feel all of your emotions, even the darkest most painful ones, you create the possibility to alchemize those experiences. Your hard times really can become an opportunity for enormous growth.


  • As painful and challenging as this year has been, the invitation to grow, heal, expand and release what no longer serves us has never been greater.
  • How to close out this year from a place of wholeness and enter 2021 with a fresh perspective, clear intentions and an open heart.
  • How to create the life we want by dismantling the systems that made us sick in the first place.
  • To come home to ourselves, we must drop deeper into our bodies and actively choose to not give in to our conditioning.
  • Why sitting with your own humanness can be your greatest teacher and the richest nourishment for your maturation and healing.
  • The importance of allowing yourself to have “messy moments” so that you can feel your emotions and heal them at the tap root.

Please take the time to ask yourself some of the questions we discussed in this episode about what you can take away from this year. How have you moved through the challenges that 2020 has brought into your life to grow and further your maturation? I want to know!

I would be so grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes and we can share this message of healing and wholeness with as many people as possible.
