    Something Unholy: Infidelity, From Rupture To Repair

    Something Unholy: Infidelity, From Rupture To Repair

    It’s a dirty little secret no one likes to acknowledge yet many of us have experienced – cheating.
    Studies show that up to 44% of people admit to cheating in relationships, and up to 57% of all divorces result from infidelity. Whether we like it or not, cheating happens. So let’s figure out what to do with it.
    Cheating on someone can feel shameful. Being cheated on can feel like the worst kind of betrayal. But no matter what side you’ve found yourself on, this behavior doesn’t have to be the end of your ability to love. In some cases, it can even result in major healing if repair takes center stage.
    Tune in to hear about the ways cheating has shown up in our lives – whether from personal experience or our clients’ – and paths to repair once the line has been crossed.
    Listen to this episode to hear about:
    The reasons why people cheat (and why partners always know when it’s happening)The most important thing to do to recover trust after cheatingWhy desire fades in long-term relationships and steps to take to make things 🔥 againDifferent relationship models and communication techniques that can prevent or repair relationships that have experienced cheatingThe secrets of couples who have made relationships exciting for the long termWhy couples need community, and the myth of being able to do it alone
    Links mentioned:
    Family Constellations (aka Systemic Family Constellations)
    The stat Sonja couldn’t find without her glasses: 88% of women who cheat place a greater emphasis on emotional affairs than purely physical. Source

    The Emerging Man: Exploring Men’s Work and Emotional (un)Availability with Vern Petty

    The Emerging Man: Exploring Men’s Work and Emotional (un)Availability with Vern Petty

    What does it mean to be a man these days? As gender roles are being restructured and explored, the emerging field of men’s work offers a rich landscape of ways to explore a new, healthier expression of masculinity.

    Our guest for this episode is Vern Petty, a somatic therapist and men’s work facilitator. He shares with us his personal journey to finding men’s work and how it has helped him heal his wounds and guide men to realize their greatest potential.
    Our conversation is laced with vulnerable shares about dating, breakups, and how we’ve learned to work with the emotional spectrum within relationships. We tackle the question of what it means to be emotionally available, and how we can do the work to become more attuned both to our own needs and our partners’.
    We also hear about Vern’s experience with conscious uncoupling, a process he recently underwent to honour his ex-partner and heal his heartbreak by sealing the ending of a partnership with a story of gratitude and growth.
    Listen in to explore what men like Vern are gaining from men’s work and why it matters. We explore topics that include:
    What it means to show up in truth at the beginning, middle, and end of a relationshipThe need for men to find spaces to align and direct toward purposeWhat men and women can do to deepen hetero romantic relationships and platonic friendshipsSexual energy cultivation (beyond simple semen retention)What emotional availability actually isAnyone who loves men – or is a man – owes it to themselves to explore what is happening in the field of men’s work.

    Season 3: EPISODE 2: Exploring Celibacy, Casual Dating, and the Art of Relationship Cleansing

    Season 3: EPISODE 2: Exploring Celibacy, Casual Dating, and the Art of Relationship Cleansing

    Imagine how much more fulfilling relationships would be if we took the time to have a “crush cleanse,” periods of intentional reflection after a breakup, or made space for rituals to harvest the learnings from loves lost so we can explore what we want to bring in.
    From conscious celibacy, casual dating, to the art of relationship fasting, and creating a personal relationship vision, listen in to our convo from our personal experiences so you can create your own North Star in the jungle of dating.
    We think taking time to explore what you want (and what you don’t) before you jump into the dating pool might just revolutionize everyone’s love life. This kind of relationship “master cleanse” can show you what’s a true love connection and what’s a patch to cover the hole of loneliness.
    Tune in to this episode to hear us explore themes around:
    The power of intentional celibacy (a practice that is surprisingly gaining in popularity).How meaningful self-pleasure can quench the touch-starved thirst. The impact of the father wound on the quest for deep intimacy. What we’ve learned about what we want by leaving behind what we don’t want. The magic of romance, love letters, and ways to make consent S E X Y. Our favorite practices for mapping out a relationship vision. A bonus offer: If you’re interested in journeying into your relationship vision, the first workshop of our Holy Eros Summit focused on practices that can guide you to outline what you’re looking for by exploring how you got here and all that it taught you. You can get access to a recorded version of this by purchasing access to the Holy Eros Summit recording at https://holyerosinstitute.com/healing-eros.
    Or, by becoming a member of the Holy Eros Community, you’ll get access to all the recordings from the summit as well as monthly online and in-person workshops and events designed to tap into the power of your sacred love.

    Dating in the Modern Jungle

    Dating in the Modern Jungle

    Welcome to Season 3 of the Holy Eros Podcast with Phoenix & our new permanent co-host Sonja Semyonova.
    Is it really ‘Love in the Time of Tinder’?
    Is there really a price tag on true love, or are we just victims of a heartless algorithm?
    In this episode, join us as we hack our way through the dense underbrush of online dating, how to dodge the pitfalls of capitalistic courtship, and alternatives to the algorithms.
    From the treacherous terrain of Tinder to the perilous pitfalls of Plenty of Fish, we'll reveal our own misadventures in the jungle of digital romance. We even recount some hilarious mishaps, cringe-worthy encounters, and downright bizarre messages and experiences we've encountered in the wild.
    But we discuss deeper issues at play, exploring the capitalistic models of dating that often leave us feeling more like commodities than human beings. Is love truly blind, or are we all just victims of the almighty dollar sign?

    WE ALSO DISCUSS:
    • Some essential survival skills you need to navigate this modern jungle with grace and clarity.
    • How to cut through the noise & get clear on what you truly want in a partner and relationship
    • Tips to creating an eye-catching Online Dating Bio (if you do decide to try this route)
    • & alternatives to the hazardous and emerge from the chaos with your heart (mostly) intact.
    From awkward first dates to unexpected love connections, get ready to laugh, learn, and maybe even find a little romance along the way.
    Welcome to the jungle, where the only thing more unpredictable than love is our podcast!

    Embracing your Wild Unleashed Erotic Lover & Mother with Natalie Abraham

    Embracing your Wild Unleashed Erotic Lover & Mother with Natalie Abraham

    Exploring sexuality as a woman, let alone as a mother, is a complex initiation into facing your inner wounds and sexual shame often passed down through our mother lines. So my convo with Somatic Trauma Therapist Natalie Abraham was a deeply refreshing exploration where she touched on: Illuminating the divine paradox that is to balance the paradox of being both an erotic sensual woman & mother and dissolving the ever selfless ‘martyred mother’ archetype to come into divine integration (or the healing of the Virgin/Whore divide and reclamation of the whole spectrum woman)Her powerful story of modeling healthy curious sexual exploration for her pre-teen and how to broach the uncomfortable topics of sexual education with our childrenUnpacking sexual shame that gets passed down from mother to daughter & how to create space for dialogue, curiosity and exploration in healthy waysThe importance of heart + soul in building trust for genuine intimacy and overcoming the disconnection between love + sex we see in the dating world exacerbated through Online Dating/Tinder/Porn cultureHer distinction of Sexuality vs. Sensuality and the four stages of intimacy, sensuality, sexual energy, and sex and how to use these distinctions to explore different forms of touch + closenessNatalie is a certified Somatic Trauma Therapist, an intimacy coach and heart initiator, an artist and healer, a poet. She guide’s transformative journeys through multiple sensual and sexual arts including Dancing into Tantra, Rope Healing/Shibari, Erotic Explorations, Female Embodiment, Men’s Circles and much more. Her key emphasis lies in vulnerability, empowerment, and conscious intimacy. She is also host and founder of her live radio talk show ‘Let’s Talk About’, conversing with international experts on subjects of relationships, sex and taboo.Find out more:IG: www.instagram.com/natalieabraham1 | www.NataliesQueendom.comLove@NataliesQueendom.comLet’s Talk About - Radio Showhttps://www.instagram.com/letstalkabout_radio/https://open.spotify.com/show/5ZaJgmzBHhxBn2WoOIgaSf?si=d5KIXYDoRI2xae2DNFMaYAhttps://nataliesqueendom.com/free-gifts/_____________________________________________________________________________WANT TO DIVE DEEPER WITH PHOENIX AMARA INTO TRANSFORMATIONAL INTIMACY?
