Episode 200 is an exploration of a decade of lessons I’ve gleaned from getting divorced and starting new relationships. I invited my friend Neil Sattin, host of the Relationship Alive podcast, on to chat about his relationship lessons as well.
- Love, lust and partnership — the separate aspects no one ever taught me to assess to see whether a relationship really works
- Understanding someone vs wanting them to be different than they are
- How to make the best decisions for yourself, and the role of your mind, body, heart and soul
- What it is to be a generous partner without losing yourself
- What conscious communication is and why relationships don’t work without it
I love supporting men (and people) to see what is possible in connection and intimacy. I want you to feel great about yourself and be able to create relationships that are deeply nourishing and powerfully intimate. I want you to feel like my client who emailed me today. He is two months into my yearlong Effortless Connection, Affection and Sex program and said he has spent his whole life wanting to feel the way he feels right now!
So, have a listen to today’s podcast and feel free let me know whether you like this style or prefer the usual interview style.
I also have one request to celebrate episode 200:
Earlier this year I published a book of some of the best Man Alive podcasts. It’s called Power and Pleasure: A Man’s Guide to Becoming a Confident and Satisfied Lover and Leader.
While it has sold more than a thousand copies I haven’t asked anyone to review it yet! If you have read it, I’d love for you to write a review to let others know what has been helpful or inspiring to you. If you haven’t read it, you can get your copy here and then I’d be grateful if you’d write a review!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or if there is a way I can support you.
