Ep 72: Ignite Your Intimacy
This podcast is all about our favourite subject, INTIMACY! We're coming to you solo this week, to talk about our group program Ignite Your Intimacy, which kicks off Feb 25.
On this episode, we discuss the intimacy juggle, why we don't prioritise it in our busy lives. The blocks and the stories and the beliefs around why we don't focus on intimacy are huge! We talk through some of ours and how we can start to overcome these to have deeper connections with ourselves and our partners.
Intimacy is a really important part of relationships that many of you are missing out on. We know, because we hear from women every week who either aren't having s e x or aren't having pleasurable s e x. We chat about why this is, the inspiration behind us offering this group program and what our six weeks together will involve.
We are passionate about helping women move through the shame and stories around deserving intimacy, being able to release trauma and beliefs and have more pleasure in their lives. If this is something you are keen to do too, then Ignite Your Intimacy is for you!
Our group program is run online and this round we are only accepting ten women. If this has sparked something in you, we encourage you to book an enrolment call NOW and say yes to your intimacy.
Book your call and find out more at conscious-couples.com/ignite

Oh we loved having Ariella on the show! She is a queer dating coach based in the US and she helps kind queer folks date better so they have courage to go after what they want in dating and life.
This episode is really for anyone who dates, has dated or wants to date! Ariella is honest and god damn adorable, her words and presence will make you smile and her wisdom is so deep and easy to digest.
We talk about dating as a queer human and the obstacles to finding other queer humans to connect with. Cindra workshops some challenges she finds when dating women and we talk about those that are sexually curious - How to approach dating and how to communicate where you are at.
This is the ideal dating guide, following Ariella's advice, there will be no more waiting by the phone or wondering what the vibe was or who will make the first move!
We talked about the patriarchal "roles" generally given in the dating world and how we can break out of those, to move towards freedom and better communication.
SO much gold in this episode and we are definitely having Ariella on again in the near future to talk more about non-monogamy. Check out her work at @queerdatingcoach and keep an eye out for her free sexting guide.

Ep 69: Navigating Feelings & Safety in Relationship
Our second episode of the podcast for 2021 is with our friend and return guest @james_fish_gill - Talking all things communication, safety and sacred space in relationship.
The Fish episode last year was JAW dropping, episode 62 if you haven't listened yet, so he was top of the list to bring back this year!
Fish is a master of communicating through conflict, which is what we spoke to him about on the previous episode. In this episode, we speak more about communicating your feelings and emotions within relationships.
This is probably one of the things our clients struggle with most, especially male identifying humans. To be able to talk about how they feel, without causing conflict. To be heard and understood!
And from a women's point of view, @cindrabanks asks how to do this when you are in your cyclone of hormonal feels. Fish gives us some great perspective on this, how you can create safety and support for your partner when they are in a spin.
He also spoke about sacred space, why this is so important for the health of long term relationships and how to create and honour it.
SO many aha moments, you'll want to take notes and listen to this one a few times - We encourage you to listen with your partners too, make it a date night!
Follow Fish for more of his goodness @james_fish_gill and keep an eye out for his upcoming events, we are going to be collab-ing with him sometime this year for sure.
Head to our Insta bio @consciouscouplescoaching to sign up for our free training, From Fighting To Fucking, coming to you this Feb! You'll find info for our coaching programs, online workshops, products and more there too. We'd love you to follow us!
If you are listening on Apple Podcasts, we would love if you would rate and review this episode. And you can simply share this episode on the other platforms, it would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing and thanks for being open to these amazing conscious chats ❤️
Ep 68: PLEASURE with Jasmin from Conscious Sexuality
Starting 2021 with a bang (literally) with our friend Jasmin Carman from @conscioussexuality - Talking all things pleasure, our favourite topic.
This year, we are bringing the juicy deep dives into sex, relationships, sexuality and so much more and this was the perfect episode to begin with.
After a bit of fluffing around and giggling, we settle into this amazing, explorative chat about pleasure, what it means to us and how it can literally be part of your everyday life.
We spoke mostly about self pleasure, the shame and stigma behind it, how challenging it can be especially for women to break through the stories and expectations to being able to own their own pleasure.
Jasmin spoke about how she started her pleasure journey with self pleasure, as this was a big part in her vaginismus healing work. And Luke shared, well too much as usual, but it makes for quite a story!
Pleasure has truly transformed all of our lives and continues to expand our clients' lives too, we are all so passionate about making it the norm, making it public and bringing it to more people.
This has inspired Jasmin and Cindra to create 12 Days Of Pleasure, their incredible online journey, to give you permission to find deep connection to yourself again, to claim your worth and to be educated and supported to explore pleasure in a safe space.
The 12 Days journey will be held in a divine container of conscious women on Facebook, with daily videos from us sharing pleasure practices and prompts for you to dive into. They will also be sharing bonus content, recommendations for extra learning and tools that we use for our own personal pleasure practices.
It starts 7th Feb and you can join them by jumping onto Jasmin's website here - conscioussexuality.com.au/shop/12-days-of-pleasure
Follow Jasmin for more of her goodness @conscioussexuality and check out her podcast up on all the usual platforms too! Our episode is live on 28th Jan.
Follow us @consciouscouplescoaching and head to our website conscious-couples.com for all things sex and relationships. We are enrolling now for our signature program, so come reset your relationship for 2021!
Thanks for listening, thanks for being patient for this episode and thanks for being you. We appreciate you sharing this episode and rating/reviewing if you are on Apple Podcasts.
