Passion Love Pursuit Podcast

Passion Love Pursuit Podcast is finally here!


Hello world! I'm your host Erica Lippy. 


I'm excited to be here and share this journey with you all. If you are like me; you are driven, curious, and passionate. We all could use a little inspiration, motivation, and encouragement. 

This podcast was inspired by my constant desire to grow, learn, and evolve as a person and share valuable conversations with others seeking the same. 

The very meaning of this Podcast is to evoke positive change in our lives so that we can become the best version of our authentic self. Which we then can live our lives more passionately and purposefully.

I'll bring on inspiring guests, some who are professionals in their field, some who are titans of their industry, and others that speak from life experience... meaning conversations that inspire us to be bold and build our inner landscape. 

This is a place to encourage us to BE and BECOME better daily.

Let's keep this pursuit in action!

Thank you for joining me on this journey. Now lets get to it!

I thought I would talk to someone about a subject that many of us like to avoid, although so many are affected by—that is trauma. We all have had some degree of trauma in our life. Though I wanted to bring on a guest that shares a unique and very useful way to heal trauma other than normal talk therapy. 

My next guest uses a method that delivers an overall healing of the mind and body to create synergy between them both. Welcome Ilene Smith. Ilene is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) whose work incorporates attachment theory, touch work, movement, and therapeutic dialogue. Through healing trauma, her clients develop a safer and deeper relationship with themselves and increase their capacity for resilience and joy. Ilene holds master’s degrees in Mental Health Counseling and Exercise Physiology and is a Certified Professional Coach through the GROW Training Institute. She completed the three-year training program at the Somatic Experiencing Institute and has conducted research on Somatic Experiencing for eating disorder treatment. 

Her new book on body-based psychology, Moving Beyond Trauma, is now available on Amazon. I hope this episode will serve you in a great way and will open your eyes to a better understanding of trauma and how you can heal past your wounds and develop a different relationship to it. 

We talk about:

  • What is Somatic experiencing
  • How do we know when we have trapped energy in our body from unhealed trauma
  • the difference between Bottom Up and Top Down therapy
  • How to heal different types of trauma
  • a holistic approach to healing
