    178. Giving Your Partner the Benefit of the Doubt

    178. Giving Your Partner the Benefit of the Doubt

    In this episode I have a conversation with my wife, Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky. She is the founder of Artsy Goddess Studio, where she actively carries out her role in helping others and the planet heal. Rainbow is passionate about art, as seen in the upcycled clothing she creates from second-hand materials, as well as the visual arts she creates, such as murals, paintings, and tapestries. She also helps women transform through voice empowering workshops and helps couples through workshops and retreats that she co-facilitates with me.
    One definition of benefit of the doubt is “to believe something good about someone, rather than something bad, when you have the possibility of doing either.” It also promotes positivity and patience in your relationship. It keeps your partner from jumping into defensive mode and it shows them that you trust and appreciate them. However, it is much more challenging to do this if there have been incidences of betrayal like infidelity or chronic lies. 
    “As a first response, be curious not furious, it can turn a potential conflict into understanding” 
    - Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky

    177. HeartShare: Balancing Work, Relationships and Self

    177. HeartShare: Balancing Work, Relationships and Self

    In this solocast I talk about the importance of knowing that balancing important parts of our life (work, relationship and self) is not about equality. Your work-life balance will vary over time. The best work-life balance is different for each of us because we all have different priorities and different lives. Balance also requires that we honor our energy. It is important to identify habits, activities, and people that drain our energy. We need to check in with ourselves regularly to make sure we prioritize what’s important to us.
    “Balance is about being in integrity with your values and the choices you make in whether they are aligned with those values” - Pripo Teplitsky

    176. Why Marry

    176. Why Marry

    Marriage is usually the union of two people in love, and it is a legal commitment that has familial, social, and economic implications. People marry for so many reasons. Some marry to raise a family together, to commit to their relationship on a deeper level, cultural or religious reasons or the desire to experience varies legal advantages. People also marry for unhealthy reasons like to escape a dysfunctional home, because your friends are getting married, because a baby is on the way, or your partner pressures you, etc, etc. Marriage is another way couples commit to each other in a deeper way.
    In this episode, I have a conversation with NikiAnne Feinberg, she discusses the reasons that her and her partner Chris decided to marry after over 10 years of being in relationship and their experiences in their commitment along the way. NikiAnne considers relationships her primary learning ground and her human tribe some of her greatest teachers. It's not a surprise that NikiAnne chose to make her home in community at Earthaven Ecovillage, where learning how to be human with other humans is one of the main tasks at hand. In 2012, she co-founded the School of Integrated Living (affectionately known as SOIL), which inspires and empowers people to live responsible and creative lives, through experiential education in integrated living and regenerative systems. Her life in community and her time working in environments that honor learning through personal experience and relationships, have shaped her cooperative cultural values and commitment to supporting people to think, feel, act, and design from a foundation rooted in interrelationship. No matter what she’s engaged in, NikiAnne is always on the same mission: to foster a sense of belonging within ourselves and the world, enhance healthy connections and help people to be seen and appreciated for the gifts they are bringing to their communities. She’s especially eager to support those in transition – between vocations, stages of life, and stories of world and self. Within this context, she is particularly passionate about fostering belonging, community grief tending, and death care midwifery.
     
    “I used that chamber, that time period and container of engagement to engage myself , to engage my heart’s longings and to see if I wanted to marry”

    HeartShare: Turning Relationship Negativity Around

    HeartShare: Turning Relationship Negativity Around

    In this solocast I talk about the importance how to recognize negativity, especially negative sentiment override in your relationships. Especially when you are anticipating negativity from your partner and there is a cloud of that negative bias also then towards them. We therefore distort our view of our partners as well as the situation at times. I also talk about turning that negativity around with positive sentiment override, where you are giving your partner the benefit of the doubt more and there is more positive bids of connection. 
    “The more negativity that is present in your marriage, the harder it becomes to escape the partner in your head. ” - Pripo Teplitsky

    Perfectionism: Traits and Characteristics

    Perfectionism: Traits and Characteristics

    Corey Costanzo is the Co-Owner of Asheville’s Still Point Wellness Spa, a licensed addiction counselor, trauma specialist, licensed massage therapist, master didgeridoo player, colleague, and good friend.
    In this episode, Corey and I have a conversation about perfectionism and how those traits and tendencies affects relationships. Perfectionism can show up as being controlling, overanalyzing things even the small stuff, setting unrealistic standards of ourselves and others, and being over critical. So sometimes it may be best to lower our expectations and also accept the situation and other people and let imperfection be a normal part of life.
    “Appreciating the wins is important to combat the habit of looking for fault”.
    - Corey Costanzo

    Polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy

    Polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy

    Polyamory specifically refers to people who have multiple romantic relationships at the same time. It does not mean any type of open relationship that may include more casual sexual partners. In many polyamorous relationships, each partner is aware of the other ones and transparency and honest communication is a vital part of healthy polyamorous relationships. In this podcast we discuss how polyamory works in relationships and discuss such questions as... What are the benefits and struggles of polyamory? How do partners decide to become non-monogamous?  What are some of the effects of polyamorous families on children? What is compersion? And we explore many more issues as well as misconceptions about polyamory.
    In this episode, I have a conversation with Sam Del Vecchio and he shares his own experience of being in polyamorous relationships.  Sam is a somatic therapist, husband, father, farmer, carpenter, poet, and communitarian. He lives in Earthaven ecovillage, in the mountains of Western North Carolina, on occupied Cherokee land. H

Learning in every podcast!

I have been listening to Pripo for 9 or so months and am so appreciative of the wisdom and lessons he offers in each and every podcast. He has a relaxed and welcoming delivery that offers hope for those of us looking to gain clarity about relationships. I myself didn’t have great relationship role models growing up and have found his podcast helps to fill that knowledge/ experience gap. His podcast topics are delivered by him or guests and are always on point with laughter, compassion, and personal stories (that make the topics all so relatable). We can all learn to relate a little better for the lessons he offers.
Thank you Pripo!
