RELATIONSHIP ROLE MODELS
Greta Hassel Grace, a Marriage and Family Therapist + Calling in "The One" Coach and Dennis Cohen, a Divorce Mediator + Conscious Uncoupling Coach, met while ecstatic dancing. Both in their 50s and originally dating other people, developed a friendship first. Without pressure, the connection eventually turned romantic and led to marriage. As a couple, they glow. Seeing the pair at parties and events on the West Side of Los Angeles, you can't help but notice them. They have the type of relationship pasted on vision boards. Sitting in a Red Tent at their home in Mar Vista, we talk about their love story, the challenges of dating and the types of experiences they create for singles and couples to inspire healthy unions. Leaving the conversation, I feel more ready for love. (Next Mindful Mingling is July 22nd in Santa Monica.)
Can a psychic really help you navigate your love life? I get into it with Professional Intuitive, Terrie Huberman, who's also host of an Intuitive Matchmaking Experience in Los Angeles. I find psychics have the ability to get us out of our past and into flow with the possibility and potential future brings. Love is found in mystery. Yet, giving too much power to someone else's word, may also be dangerous. Can another really perfectly predict your future? Isn't energy always shifting and changing? Listen as Terrie and I share our own hang ups and how intuition acts as our guide in love.
(The Intuitive Matchmaking Experience Guided by Terrie will take place in Los Angeles on Sun, Sept 30th. Register here.)
LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE
Venturing through my first festival with Alorah Inanna, Intimacy Expert and LIB speaker, and Craig Ruble (aka Rubio), a student of Alorah's teachings, fostered a fascinating observation of human dynamics. Recorded in an SUV surrounded by 30,000 campers inspired a conversation about east coast vs. west coast dating, sexual vs. sensational touch and how many are searching & sorting for "The One." All around us people participated in yoga, educational seminars, spiritual ceremonies, live music, DJs, dance parties - many high on life or a variety of drugs. As upload this episode I'm left thinking, what if all of us - thousands - were stuck by that lake for six months? Would we then find who or what we're seeking? Hmm.
FLOW + BOUNDARIES
Author Stephen Covey says that human's greatest achievement is interdependence. On the journey to discover a best suited life partner, willing to dance within the container of a relationship, thoughts are formed, shifted, created and expanded. Boundaries become established in exploration of the connection. For this episode I invite Rachel Maskell, Story Alchemist and founder of The Story Circle, married for ten years, to converse with me about how boundaries develop in a relationship. We flow through the topic which may sound relatable or even trigger you. Take note of how it pulls at you.
THE ART OF CUDDLING
I’ve heard that many Americans and Western Europeans are starved for touch. To shift us into connection, Certified and Professional Cuddlers, even studios designed for cuddle sessions, are popping up in California. Christina Hepburn, a Professional Cuddler, and host of T&A Sex Talk, and I have a fun conversation about touch, the benefits of cuddling and how to incorporate it while dating or when getting to know another before liquid contact. My new motto: Keep your arms open and don't be afraid to touch (only when consensual, please).
Friends Nick Onken and Coach Yari have a spontaneous Saturday conversation with me about dating, connecting and unleashing fears. Movement - be it dance or just going out into the world - opens you up to newness, nearly freeing you, and allowing for magic moments of creation and connection, like this one. Both Nick and Yari, meeting for the first time, surrender by saying, YES! when asked to create this podcast only moments before record is pushed. Whether in New York City, Los Angeles or anywhere else in the world, meeting in real life always feels better than through an app... at least it does for me.
THE ENERGY MUSE
Energy is moving through us. I'm constantly shifting, changing and learning. Every podcast guest becomes a messenger. Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro, co-founders of The Energy Muse, uncomfortably pushed me forward - literally becoming my energy muse. Anxiety ran through my body as we recorded. As my own worst critic I needed time to shake and move beyond it. Months later, while Mercury is in Retrograde, I'm ready to share this episode with you. We talk crystals, opening your heart and preparing for love. Can you sense the change or shift in my being since episode one? I imagine you to have changed as well. Evolution is inevitable. Thanks for sharing this wild journey with me!
Lauren Wallet of Rebella destroyed an identity she was once known for in South Africa. Author of Love Lauren, a blog which detailed life as a Professional Dater, no longer feed her soul. After fleeing to Los Angeles Lauren learns the difference between "dating" and "seeing each other" as she more deeply meets herself 90-days sober. Lauren and I talk about self-evolution and the anxiety that can take over when a new love seems to disconnect. Is time really an illusion in matters of the heart? Or should we accept the cycle of creating and destroying?
HAVING FUN WITH MEN
Is he an Alpha or Beta Man? A "Player" or there for you to have fun with (until you're done)? Brian Howie, Host of The Great Love Debate, and I bring you a double podcast. While the two of us may be at the center of the Dating Industry, each having spoken to thousands about dating + relating, we're still in our process of "figuring it all out." Join us for a fun conversation as we talk about unique male archetypes and a dragon penis tattoo. I imagine the conversation to further your thoughts.
WISDOM FROM AN AGELESS GODDESS
Whether home in New York or Los Angeles, I find myself gravitating towards those with more life experience who appear enlightened. Driven by curiosity, I want access to their knowledge. Alorah Inanna, age 69, radiates Goddess energy. Her long gray hair, glowing skin, and white sheer wrapped gown make heads turn. I first noticed her at events and in pictures on social media. I wanted to know her. Alorah began working with the plant medicine, Ayashausa, in the 80ies. Guided by the Divine, she and her now deceased husband guided thousands of people towards more fulfilling relationships for over a decade. Now, at her scared space, a Temple in Marina Del Rey, CA, where we recorded this episode, Alorah guides singles and couples through sensual, not sexual, experiences. Alorah talks, as I listen intently, about why society is touch-starved, the difference between liquid and non-liquid contact, and how not talking provides an opportunity for deeper connection. Hear the messages dropped. What will you pick up?
BREAKUP & BREAKTHROUGH
Most people aren't meant to be together for forever. Within a breakup, you may find life lessons that prepare you for the love your soul truly desires. While challenging, breakups can also be cathartic, liberating and transformative if you're willing to make a conscious decision to move through the pain and heal. Amy Chan, known as the scientific Carrie Bradshaw, is the founder of Renew Breakup Bootcamp. Finally, a destination that accelerates recovery! Amy and I chat about how we've personally overcome heartache and the knowledge she's accrued from years of studying breakups. Our conversation flows in and out of dating and relationships, emphasizing how important it is to heal and stay in your center. Because when in alignment with your soul, connection to another who's in alignment as well comes with greater ease.
THE SOULMATE DANCE
Are we half-souls seeking, searching for our other half? Or should we just look for a companion - someone to be our life partner? My gay best friend, Ezequiel Leal, and I journey through a conversation about soul connections. Over time we've learned to practice the discovery of self and to follow the heart. Having faith in life and love, while aligning with your own soul, may be what calls your soulmate into your vortex, instantly connecting you. Listen in and don't get tricked by time. For I believe time is an illusion. Karma, cause, and effect are always at play, especially in love.
ARRIVING AT READY
Two years ago I ended a relationship after reading Bryan Reeves' article, "Choose Her Everyday (or Leave Her)." The article was read by millions. In this episode, I finally get to pick the brain (and heart) of the man known as the "Relationship Insight Ninja" - Bryan Reeves - on the difference between man and woman OR masculine and feminine energies. We flow in conversation about the journey of self-discovery that one must ride through to arrive in a state of readiness for deeply connected love. Are you ready?
We all come from sex. Its ecstasy makes me tingle. However, I advise, never sleep with someone you wouldn't want to be. Dr. Cat Meyer, a renowned Sex Therapist, and I have a deep conversation about the journey to sexual freedom and pleasure. Our intention for sharing our conversation with you is to spark self-query. We don't own the truth. We hope to guide you further to yours though. Listen. Then go into you. Own your unique sexuality as an adventure. This is your story.
Life is a progression. Our experiences create a reality that is designed by how we respond to each moment. Why am I this way? Because of deep introspection. Coach Yari, of The Human Garage and creator of the SoulBody Method, and I reflect on our previous relationships, the guides we learned from, and how new trains of thoughts were formed. We also discuss what we love about men...like their bodies and how they're designed to please us!
The mantra, SO PURKH, is known as the chant for men. Mara Saranpreet Luthane, a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, first told me about the prayer. Shortly after, I began a 40-day practice of reciting the prayer 11x daily. The Sikh mantra is said to uplift men, clear up karma around men, and bring out "The Man God" in men. Some even call it "the love mantra" as it's also said to call in your true (male) love. In this episode, Mara shares the heritage of SO PURKH and the power of chanting it. Recorded on Day 17 of my practice, hear how it's shifting my relationship with the masculine thus far. Both men and women are invited to chant SO PURKH. I imagine it to leave you buzzing and vibrating higher than ever before with a greater capacity for love in your heart.
Trying to predict how to share what's on your mind so that the others receive it well is exhausting. My guest, Robert Schwenkler, Founder of The Brotherhood Men's Leadership Community, lovingly speaks his truth even if you don't like it. Robert, who first said no to being on this podcast, draws people towards him with his honesty and desire to do/be better. Listen as we chat about male/female friendship, transformational work, and $$$ from his home in Santa Monica, CA
A conversation with Comedian Ross Everett feels like recess. We each throw out thoughts and catch epiphanies like children in a sandbox. While it appears that we may have it all "figured out," I can imagine sitting back down with him in 10 years and laughing about how far we've come. Ghosting, the power of pray, fantasy relationships and attachment - we talk about it all in my longest but greatest mind journey podcast yet. You'll want to see Ross's show, Stop Stopping The Unstoppable, after hearing about it here!
Kesha Nichols, former NBA Dancer and VH1 Reality Star, left New York City to re-enter life in her hometown of Morganton, NC. Leaving behind private jets and a penthouse apt, she found herself and regained her faith. Two years later, her soulmate walked through the Bible Study doors. Kesha and I talk about aging proudly, conversational narcissism, and how loving yourself may be the key to finding love with another.
