I’ve spent over a decade studying and experiencing the type of connection that feel like a safe home, true love and ecstatic fun. These kind of connections are rare to find and challenging to maintain. What I found out is that the number one key to these juicy, joyful & deep relationships is: Communication! It is simple, yet no one has taught us how to feel courageous and empowered in our fullest self-expression as a lover, as a friend, a coworker, a leader, a parent, a child ,… as human! On this podcast I have raw and unpolished conversations that you can relate to and that support you in building more confidence to express yourself in the most authentic and loving way while honoring your own and others' desires and boundaries. We need each other to be our Self!

    #9 How to Navigate Conversations – Part 3 with Steffi Seefeld

    Get your notebook and pen out – Take some notes!







    I share with you a recording of a 3 part webinar “How to navigate difficult conversations” to give you the tools you need to prepare and to show up as a compassionate and kind human for conversations that can no longer be avoided. It is online on my youtube channel: Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkFJX6zjYbU&t=75sPart 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVTINmeZi6MPart 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=js2NSvNj5NU&t=37s







    I want you to take the courage to stop avoiding. Instead: Lean into learning! What do I mean by that? Have conversations. I know (!) how difficult they can be especially when it is related to our deepest values and belief systems. And to be honest, here in the United States people are trained to avoid – think about it: You’d rather buy a gun and are willing to kill than to invest in a non-violent communication education? Personally, that says a lot about a system of a country and I do not want to tolerate this any longer without doing anything about it – That’s why I founded the Connection University and do the best I can to provide tools that make it more accessible and easier to connect with people, to love, to accept, to belong.







    Our sponsor, The Connection University, offers a variety of experiences to strengthen the muscle of creating a deep sense of belonging with other people in the community, at work, and with Self. It is like a mental and emotional gym for all people who want to see culture shifting from loneliness, “I can do it myself” to togetherness, appreciation, and compassion.”Check it out at www.connection-university.com







    Next to their wonderful community events and retreats, they have powerful programs for teams that are now all working from home. Loneliness is an epidemic that often gets overlooked in the work environment, although its the main culprit for many of the pain points businesses deal with (lack of productivity, decreased engagement, poor performance. Creating a workplace culture that celebrates what we all crave – compassion, togetherness, connection, trust – these are the businesses that see increased productivity – allowing creativity to flow and growth to soar. The Connection University offers Virtual Vitality Program to support companies to thrive even during the time of “Working From Home”. Check it out and tell your colleagues: https://www.connection-university.com/virtualvitalityprograms/

    #5 Why Being Me is Scary for People with Robert Hensley

    #5 Why Being Me is Scary for People with Robert Hensley

    In this episode, I get to talk with Robert about so much from the wheel of consent, to body drumming. Yep – body drumming. It is the most sensational experience EVER! He shares from his experiences why there is this subtle feeling of discomfort in some interactions and in others it feels so natural and organically comfortable. Hint: Consent of the intention 😉 He shares some great practical tools on how to communicate what might seem difficult and scary. He shares about a very open and perspective-shifting view on the giving – and – receiving concept.“It is very fulfilling for the giver when the receiver helps them to be their hero and heroine”One of Robert’s very unique gifts is drumming. Not only drums and percussions. But also bodies. Listen until he talks about “We have eyes in our palms.” aahahha… I’m melting. Speaking of melting: I was also melting when he said: “Receiving and appreciating the person – that brings me the joy of touch “You may be able to tell that I am a very somatic person.. 😉 So is Robert. And maybe you too. It takes effort to find the setting we can feel safe to fully express ourselves the way we are in and with our bodies. Robert points out the importance of creating a safe space – stepping into the provider of safety role as the masculine so that the feminine part (men, women, trans) can fully let go and surrender.

    #4 Why Love is Not Enough for a Healthy Relationship with Reid Mihalko

    #4 Why Love is Not Enough for a Healthy Relationship with Reid Mihalko

    In this phenomenal episode, Reid Mihalko shares inspiring stories of his life and wisdom from his experiences as a sex educator and sex geek with us. He is not only an incredibly entertaining storyteller, but he also shares a lot of tips and tools on how to live a more self-expressed and fulfilled life inside and outside the bedroom. The reason why I wanted to talk with him on the podcast is that EVERY single conversation I have had with him I thought “I wish we recorded this and can share it with the world”. Here we go. Number one is done and here for you. 🙂







    Reid shares the epic and oh so helpful framework on “How to start complicated conversations” with us that is related to his work. He talks about why slowing down is the black belt of consent, why love is not enough for a healthy relationship and why trust the sexiest thing about consent is.
