In the moments when your feelings are bigger than you can handle, it’s important to have options. In this blog, I share three “go to” principles to practice both when you most need it and especially in the times when you don’t.
When we only show our outsides to each other, we can feel alone. In this blog, I show you my insides and give you permission to do the same and to feel how connected we truly are.
The ability to respond with forgiveness and understanding in a world that is teaching us to fight and condemn feels Divine. In this essay, I reflect on what it means to me to become better than my own history of trauma in order to heal myself and the world around me.
This practice is totally about making out, but about so much more, too. It’s about allowing yourself to be in full pleasure with what is, rather than finding what’s missing and focusing on what isn’t. Be warned, this is an advanced practice. And the more vulnerable you feel, the harder it will be. It can also multiple the happiness quotient in your relationship by one hundred-fold. I’m excited to show you how.
I’m going to begin by stating the obvious. In order to ask for it – whatever “it” is - you have to have some clue about what you want.

This episode is about the importance of talking to one another during love making and all the many ways that communication in sex is vital for increasing the pleasure and deepening the connection. Something most people never learned.
Happy new year! I pray the new year has begun in peace for you. Though I happen to know, because you have told me, that for many of you it hasn’t. This episode is about all the friction that has been happening lately - in couples, in families and across community.
"Fall apart fast and die well", she urged. All I could do was jot the phrase down in my notes and breathe.
Though I am not a fan of the commercial holiday, I like the idea of using February 14th as a loving kick in the pants to inspire us to take emotional risks. To try out saying what's true, to admit our vulnerabilities and to reveal our insides more to the outside world.
I will admit it. I was pissed. I know my youngest brother is a busy father of three. Yet for weeks he had delayed sending me an important package after swearing multiple times he would put it in the mail.
