Relationships are challenging! What if you had a lens to look through, where you could see your partner clearly, in a way that allowed for more love and connection? What if it helped you have fewer fights and made it less likely you’d become one of the 50% of marriages that end? This conversation gives you that lens and helpful frameworks for a relationship that lasts!
If you’re satisfied with maintaining the average level of relationship, with the usual fights, conflict, resentment, and baggage, this may not interest you.
But if you’re ready to take a romantic relationship (or any relationship really) to the next level — where it grows, deepens, and evolves you — this week’s podcast is for you.
On today’s Man Alive podcast you’ll hear from teacher and author Guy Finley. He is one of those rare, wise people who sees SO clearly how things actually are, that it doesn’t make sense at first.
I had to ask a lot of clarifying questions to really get what he was talking about. When you slow down and listen deeply, the depth of his knowledge and experience will shift your understanding so that what seemed unlikely, or impossible, becomes possible!
Guy has written many books and his latest book, Relationship Magic: Waking Up Together, blew my mind open to new and truer ways of loving.
In this inspiring and mind-opening conversation we discussed:
- The three stages of relationships and the gifts we receive from each (even when they don’t seem like gifts!)
- The 12 lessons that guide us to REAL LOVE
- The surprising truth about who is actually picking the fights, that allows you to stop them (not who you think!)
- The most important question to ask yourself in the midst of a relationship melt-down
- The original meaning of patience and how to apply it to deepen or save your relationship
I’m working on a class for men to have the best love and sex of their lives after 40. If this is you, and you’d be excited for this topic, and/or have questions you want me to answer, simply respond to this email to let me know!
