Courtney is an award-winning integrative health and wellness coach with an extensive background in mental health and social services. Her advocacy and wellness programs focus on holistic and natural solutions.
When asked how listeners might benefit from this episode, she says, “My story is about listening to internal wisdom and expanding the idea of who you think you are to tap into the you that resides within. That includes listening to intuition, relying upon the senses, and taking good care of the ‘self.”
In this episode of Engaging The Phenomenon we are joined by Courtney Marchesani who is the author of Four Gifts of The Highly Sensitive and a paper for the BICS contest called Language of Consciousness: Signs, Symbols, and Messages from the Afterlife. See Here: https://youtu.be/rnq4j6fJkqg
In her extraordinary new book from Hay House, Four Gifts of the Highly Sensitive: Embrace the Science of Sensitivity, Heal Anxiety and Relationships, and Connect Deeply With Your World, Courtney Marchesani de-stigmatizes the term “sensitive,” illustrating how “sensitivity” is a powerful advantage, and provides a pathway to an effective balancing act between being highly aware and participating fully in the world without feeling the need to shut down or self-anesthetize to avoid pain, people or environmental stimulation.
Every individual carries a level of intuition. In fact, it can even be measured scientifically. But how can your intuition, or sensitivity and such, play a role in your life? In this episode of The Fit Mess, Courtney Marchesani talks about the book she authored entitled Four Gifts of the Highly Sensitive, the four types of highly sensitive people, how sensitives can channel their sensitivity, and as well as the uncanny story of how she discovered her intuitiveness. Before and after the interview, Zach and Jeremy also talk about the value of listening to one’s inner voice and how always powering through life isn’t always going to power you through.
I invited Courtney Marchesani to join me on this podcast to talk more about the highly sensitive person and to explore how it relates to PCOS.
Courtney specializes in the often-hidden mental health and emotional struggles of Highly Sensitive People (HSP). HSP’s were first written about by Dr. Elaine Aron in her book The Highly Sensitive Person. Often overwhelmed by the intensity and stimulation from the world, HSP’s make up roughly 15 to 20% of the population.
She won the Hay House 2017 Writer’s Workshop Book Contest with her proposal Four Gifts of the Highly Sensitive which identifies four specific archetypes of the highly sensitive person.
What does spiritual emergency mean and what is the meaning of “decompensation” with regards to mental illness? Why is the sense of community so important especially for the mentally ill person? The guest discusses areas of the world where they may have less mental illness issues. Courtney also discusses why medication may dull the spirit. She gives you great insight into the indigenous cultures and why their spirit may be so contained compared to western civilizations. What is the aboriginal’s dreamtime or trance state? Courtney also highlights the phenomenon of autism, schizophrenia and trauma.
Pennsylvania born Courtney Marchesani is an author, health coach, yoga teacher, and a passionate advocate of sustainability. Courtney received her B.A. at the University of Montana in 1999 and began her successful career working in mental health services. While working as a social worker and lobbying for homeless programs in Washington State, a dramatic turning point in Courtney’s life came after preventing a fire in a Capitol Hill, Seattle brownstone in 2002. She had sensed the fire before it happened.
After the experience, she began a relentless search of understanding the power of intuition. She shifted her personal and professional focus by researching and expanding on the works of pioneers Russell Targ (Stanford Research Institute), medical intuitive Carolyn Myss, and the teachings of lucid dreaming. Courtney never strays from the intuitive pursuits that continue to
shape the focus of her studies, writings, or her professional career.

Dive into a podcast during your a long commutes, workouts at the gym, and downtime in the bathtub, among other places. If you’re wondering if that’s a good thing, it may help you to know that podcasts interact with your brain in the same way stories do. A 2016 study found that listening to podcasts stimulates multiple areas of both the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Accessing information via the human voice can generate activity in parts of the brain responsible for memory, sensory activity, and emotion.
