Turn Up Intimacy By Tuning Into Yourself

Turn Up Intimacy By Tuning Into Yourself   Have you ever wondered how to deepen the connection in your relationships?   Intimacy is a word often misused in our culture. Very often it is used to describe sexual activity within a committed relationship. However, intimacy goes far beyond physical connection. True intimacy requires a strong relationship with yourself and an ability to be vulnerable in the presence of your partner, enough so that they may truly “see” you. Intimacy is often broken down into the phrase: “Into me...

The Savage Race 2.0: The Deeper Lessons

The Savage Race 2.0: The Deeper Lessons   For many of you who have been following my blogs for a while, you may remember last year around this time when I wrote a few blogs about facing your fears, discovering your courage, and what I learned on my first go around with the mud run obstacle course adventure that is “The Savage Race.” My brother had talked me into it last year, after much persuading, and I was terrified!

Take Time to Fall in Love with Yourself

Fall in Love with Yourself In the past 7 years since my divorce, I have spent a lot of time with myself. I experimented with online dating and had a couple of significant long-term relationships.

What I appreciate about my profession is that it offers me room to learn about and explore aspects of myself that would not otherwise be in my awareness. I believe that my...
