I am awestruck by these stories that resonate so deeply within my own heart and soul. So interesting are all of these nuances and dynamics. I am feeling validated, empowered, and inspired as I listen.

I'm here unpacking while you unpack. It's expanding my perspective in particular ways that have felt heavy and weighted down by shame. So thank you from the bottom of my lighter heart.

Hi. I'm Candice Schutter. I started The Deeper Pulse podcast about a year into the pandemic when I was feeling upside-down stir-crazy and desperate for meaningful connection. I began by sharing personal stories, striving to make sense of my own life and what I’d learned after 16 years of work as a life coach specializing in agency and self-expression. In the process of trying to liberate my voice, I discovered that I was operating 'under the influence.' I’d never grappled with the spiritual wounds that I’d experienced while working in new age wellness circles. So I dove headfirst into the world of cult recovery and discovered that, not only did it explained the trauma I’d experienced in my late twenties and thirties, it held the key to a door that I’d been banging on since I was a child.

On TDP, my guests and I talk about the everyday labor of self-expression, unpack the ‘cult’ure of self-help, and brave sweaty-palm truths that restore our humanity.⁠ ⁠We stop pretending. We are open with our hearts and generous with our stories. We tap into the deeper pulse that lies beneath our social indoctrination, and we're reminded how to be brave with our lives.⁠ Episodes 1-17 are all about feelings of stuckness. And if you're recovering from a toxic relationship, high-demand workplace, or too much new age wellness yada-yada, check out episodes 32+ for a deep-dive into what puts the cult in 'cult'ure.
