Cozy Hermit Coven

Cindy Norton Stokes

Hosted by Cindy Norton Stokes, the Cozy Hermit Coven is a comforting, introspective, and witchy place nestled in a bright and inviting forest cottage. Here we gather around the hearth to talk about all things cozy and mystical. Here you are invited to slow down and learn more about yourself, so that you can begin to connect with your intuition and the longings of your soul. And we can’t get to that cozy space without standing up to oppression along the way, so you can rest assured that the Cozy Hermit Coven is built on a foundation of collective liberation. So grab your cup of tea and settle in. Welcome to the Cozy Hermit Coven.

*Special Note: From January 2021 - September 2023 this was the Mountain Practice Journeys podcast - a comfy, cozy place for introverted & highly sensitive solopreneurs. In October 2023 the Mountain Practice Journeys podcast was rebranded to the Cozy Hermit Coven podcast in order to keep all the wonderful interviews from past guests, as well as helpful information for therapists starting and growing their private practices.

Shadow Work & Ancestral Healing with guest Adina Arden Cooper of Fire Bird Creative [Episode 103]
In this episode of the Cozy Hermit Coven podcast I chat with Adina Arden Cooper of Fire Bird Creative about Shadow Work and Ancestral Healing. We touch on many things including trusting your knowing, the ripple effects of healing work, the disrespect of the term “woo woo,” dream interpretation, past lives or “other lives,” the illusion of time, archetypes, origin stories, forest bathing, apollonian star seeds, and much more. Adina serves as a witness and a guide on the journey of personal growth and discovery. Her background is in mental health counseling and she has over twenty years of experience in the field. Her work has evolved over time and she now refers to herself as a Shadow Guide and Soul Healing Specialist rather than a "therapist." Adina helps people unearth what lies hidden in the subconscious for expanded awareness and fulfillment. She teaches people how to know and connect with the soul, which brings more fulfillment, peace and joy to life.Check out Adina’s Blue Hour podcast.Follow Adina on Instagram @fire.bird.creative Books mentioned in this episode:My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem It Didn't Start with You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle by Mark Wolynn Many Lives, Many Masters: The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and the Past-Life Therapy That Changed Both Their Lives by Brian L.

Honoring Yourself As A Sensitive Therapist with guest April Snow [Episode 99]

Honoring Yourself As A Sensitive Therapist with guest April Snow [Episode 99]
Here in Episode 99 I chat with April Snow about how to honor yourself as a sensitive therapist and business owner. Highly Sensitive Therapists (HSTs) are naturally more empathetic, perceptive, and impacted by their work with clients. To bypass burnout, it's essential to look within to create a practice that aligns with your needs on every level - from how you decorate your office to when you schedule sessions to what trainings you take. Instead of looking around to decide what you're supposed to do, use your inner guide as a compass. HSTs have different needs and it's essential to give yourself permission to break the rules of how you're supposed to be as a therapist. When you design an HSP-friendly routine, practice, and lifestyle - you are capable of feeling deep fulfillment and creating deep, meaningful impact for your clients. ~~~Connect with April...Instagram: Facebook Group: Sustainable Practice Roadmap Program: Simple Systems and Community Support to Feel More Energized and Fulfilled as a Sensitive Therapist.
