Who am I?
Who would you be without your protections? Who would you be if your parents had given you what you really needed? Are you simply a product of your conditioning or is there something essential and unique about you? Can that conditioning be undone? Transformed? Do you have a feeling you could live bigger? Love bigger? Do you wonder why you still get triggered even though you’ve worked hard to become more self-aware?
We see in everyone a more authentic and alive version of the self inside, waiting to be discovered. There is a way to find that essential you, to fan the embers of your very soul, and let the eternal flame of the truest you live your life.
Therapy for the Soul?
For Edenity, the aim of Personhood is to heal the soul-level fear of being: to be alive, to be vulnerable, to love, to engage in our passion work, and to embody all of who we are whether people notice or not.
The Personhood dharma in Edenity is Emotional Body Ensoulment (EBE): a soul-level therapeutic process in which we differentiate our protection mechanisms from our true soulful selves so we can access core wounding from this life and before.
- We are responsible for the contents of our unconscious.
- Human beings are emotive before they are willful, mental, physical, or energetic.
- The personal self is spiritually sacred.
This is a stark contrast from working with yourself energetically or mentally, to ventilate or transcend difficult feelings and build more effective coping mechanisms. EBE assumes the embodied soul is capable of feeling anything, and it’s only our protection that needs coping mechanisms.

Edenity sees narcissism and altruism as two sides of an unhealthy coin, despite what we’re conditioned to believe. The key is being responsive to rather than responsible for others.Listen to “The Heart of Soul” podcast episode 49

Why We Become Strangers to Ourselves
These feelings are so unbearable that in order to survive, we innocently control them as best we can. Unable to get the love we need from our caregivers, we contort ourselves like a pretzel in order to fit their reality, believing we must leave behind the aspects of us that don’t fit if we are to be loved.
This is what you feel when you have the sense that there’s more to you than your experience. And because nothing real can ever truly be lost, the forgotten, hidden away aspects of your very soul wait to be rediscovered, rescued, and restored to become whole.
You Are What You’ve Been Looking For
When who you essentially are is running your life, rather than the person you had to become to survive your childhood, everything changes, and a lot of it unintentionally. Rather than having to work to change your intentions, actions, and outcomes, the more soulfully authentic “you” organically expresses itself in life naturally. And life responds.
Ensoulment, Not Just Improvement
While EBE has psychotherapeutic elements, it goes deeper. We facilitate the emergence of your soul, rather than improve your functionality. In this way, you don’t turn into who you want, you turn into who you really are.
In EBE, we don’t work on your relationships, we work with you as an individual in your relationships to process barriers to intimacy. We don’t work on manifestation, we seek to find and feel the unworth that causes you to come from a scarcity orientation.
The results of living as a soulful self are myriad. When you don’t need to control down your emotions, you gain back the energy that was unconsciously spent managing them, because a healthy self doesn’t need to manage emotions. You just feel them. And a soulfully embodied self can do that effortlessly.
