    Intimacy Ignited: YOU are THE ONE - Final Episode with Laura Aiisha + Stephanie Carlin

    Intimacy Ignited: YOU are THE ONE - Final Episode with Laura Aiisha + Stephanie Carlin

    After 121 episodes and 3 years since launching and producing the Ignite Intimacy Podcast I have chosen to pause the podcast indefinitely. It’s a choice I’ve been avoiding until I realized, it’s ok. Release FOMO, let it go, discover what else is ready for my love and attention. 
     
    This has been quite a journey with thousands of listeners tuning in week after week and tens of thousands of downloads from all over the world!! I jumped for joy to see listeners from Saudi Arabia, Kenya, New Zealand and Brazil!! Wow!! And, to run into people I’ve known through the years who tell me they’ve been tuning in, that they’re getting something from the content we’ve created and shared, that they’re trying new things with their lovers and partners and that their intimacy IS being ignited! 
     
    And, to the people who courageously reached out to disclose their Herpes status for the first time to ME. I honor and SALUTE you!! And, I’ve been deeply touched by your courage. 
     
    This is all more than I could have bargained for. 
     
    It has truly been my honor to share this journey with all of you. 
     
    What’s so cool about this podcast is that it will live on through the 121 episodes we’ve created, so you can continue tuning in, sharing with your friends and discovering intimacy for yourself through these episodes. 
     
    Aside from everything I shared on this episode one of the most POTENT realizations that I had is that I AM THE ONE! And I am the SOURCE of my life. I have choice, I have power, I have consciousness and a tool kit filled to the brim with everything I need to continue creating a life and legacy that will uplift and empower through time. 
     
    And, so are you, so do you!! 
     
    Thank you for showing up, tuning in, sharing, caring, reaching out, trying new things, exploring the edges of your vulnerability and eroticism. I SEE YOU! I HONOR YOU! And I am deeply grateful for you!!!
     
    KEEP GOING!!
     
    I would have not been able to keep Ignite Intimacy going if it weren’t for the support of my team: Lindsay Leclair, who published every episode, David my editor @davidstudio on Fiverr and Amy Greensky who designed the logo. I am deeply grateful for you all!!
     
    Keep listening, stay connected @LauraAiisha @IgniteIntimacy and until we meet again, stay blessed and keep shining!! xox
     
    About Laura Aiisha
     


    I have always been fascinated by the world of relational experiences. Wondering what makes two people come together, break apart, stay single, attract many suitors and long term relationships, or none at all, what makes some venture into the world of polyamory, while others were born into a culture and society where polygamy is common and if not a choice, something they learn to live with. 
     
    I had been meditating on these topics for quite some time now when in January 2016 an energy larger than me began pulling me forward to explore all of these topics (and more) in an interactive and audio based conversation I could share with the public. Now we're wrapping up this juicy goodness and moving on to wherever the spirit moves me!

    Heartbreak, Sexual Liberation and Self Love with Lauren Leonardi

    Heartbreak, Sexual Liberation and Self Love with Lauren Leonardi

    I was in my favorite mezcaleria in San Miguel de Allende recently when my friend said, ‘You need to meet my friend, Lauren. She wrote a book about Sex and love and your podcast is about sex and love. You two should do something together!’ 

    And, the rest is herstory ;)

    Lauren and I hit it off immediately. When she told me she wrote a book about the lovers she had soon after arriving in this gorgeous central Mexican town after breaking up with her former partner of 10+ years I was hooked. I had to learn more about this gorgeous, bold and brilliant woman and her stories of sex and love here in San Miguel!

    Join author, lover and soul adventurer, Lauren Leonardi and I as we share about the journey of love, letting go, waking up to the loss of desires unfulfilled, the path to self love and choosing our sexual liberation in the face of it all on Episode 116 of Ignite Intimacy!!

    About Lauren

    Lauren Leonardi is a native New Yorker and writer, living between central Mexico and south Florida. 
    After years of corporate ladder-climbing, Lauren turned away from that world to pursue a life in the arts, and indeed to make her own life her medium. She’s earned her bread and butter as a freelance writer for the better part of the last decade while moonlighting as a taxi driver, shop girl, waitress, consultant; and as a caretaker for animals, children, and the elderly. 
    She suffered for years from debilitating depression, addiction, and unresolved trauma, and ultimately found peace through spiritual practice, deep authentic connection, alive partnership, and lots of lots of great sex. 
    Lauren is shopping her book, Just Say Me, which chronicles exactly one year to the day after the end of a long term relationship. Each chapter is devoted to one lover in that first year. The book is about the devastating grief of leaving someone you still love, and the powerful medicine sex can be in the healing of a broken heart.
