Many couples don’t know how to navigate low moods, conflict, and emotional reactivity. In each season of the Rewilding Love Podcast, Rohini and Angus will help a couple face different kinds of relationship issues: from divorce papers on the table to rediscovering trust and intimacy to reigniting the spark.

    EP54 Vulnerability as a Turning Point in Relationships

    EP54 Vulnerability as a Turning Point in Relationships

    After 54 episodes filled with heartfelt and thought-provoking conversations, the Rewilding Love podcast reaches its first season final episode. Rohini and Angus share their lessons learned from the journey and their guests. This is what makes Rewilding Love a genuine and life-changing relationship podcast.

    Taking a journey of vulnerability with your partner opens your eyes to them. So you gain a better grasp of how they think and how they process things. This allows you to be more sensitive to their needs and provide support when necessary.

    Seeing the value of honest, open, authentic communication helps us let go of the habitual thought patterns of the ego that try to keep us feeling safe, and supports us with awakening more fully to who we are and this impacts how we show up in relationships.

    Angus recalled how Mavis Karn’s words (Episode 30) about letting go of anything that doesn’t look like love helped him realize how he can get caught up in his programming and conditioning and use anger as a coping mechanism. Understanding this habit allowed him to gain more compassion for himself and for Rohini.

    Angus and Rohini have lived that transformation. They have been through the same ups and downs that the couples they work with have. As Rohini said, they lived in high pain, high conflict relationships that didn’t look like they would ever find peace — but they did. And now, they can pass on what they learned, so others can share openly and vulnerably, and truly experience the love that is their true nature and express that love.

    EP53 Stop Trying To Create a “Perfect” Relationship with Chana and Shaul Rosenblatt

    Chana and Shaul Rosenblatt speak to the universal struggles that couples come up against in relationships and share with us the insights that have helped them in their relationship and that they share with the couples they work with.

    Shaul points out the importance of understanding the role that moods play in how we perceive our partner and Chana shares her journey of respecting the feeling of aliveness and not wasting time being spent caught up in upset feelings.

    This interview provides a light-hearted exploration of married life where Chana and Shaul share about their humanness in their relationship in humble and humorous ways.

    It is easy to fall in love with both of them as they point us to how to fall in love with each other more deeply.

    Rabbi Shaul Rosenblatt grew up in Liverpool and has been a lifelong Liverpool FC fan. He studied for his rabbinic degree at Aish Hatorah in Jerusalem where he met his first wife Elana a”h who passed away in 2001 after a long struggle with cancer.

    EP52 Pleasing Versus Self-Honoring in Relationships with Angus and Rohini Ross

    EP52 Pleasing Versus Self-Honoring in Relationships with Angus and Rohini Ross

    While it’s normal to want to please partners in relationships, overextension of efforts often leads to conflict. In this episode, Rohini and Angus share their take on how to break the pattern of pleasing our partners without honoring our limitations, while valuing the importance of diversity in relationships. They also talk about how to surpass any feelings of resentment that may arise when the receiver misses out on celebrating the giver’s generosity.

    It’s important to know our boundaries and articulate our limits to our partners. This is important for “pleasers” in a marriage who have a tendency to put themselves first without listening to what works for them. Often, they resort to overriding their instincts for the sake of a quiet and peaceful coexistence and to avoid emotional pain. And, when the appreciation they receive is not equal to the overextension they’re making, it only leads to unhappiness.

    Assuming that our partner recognizes the efforts we’re making disregards the fact that the other person is not psychic, or that they process information differently than we do. Pleasing our partner is healthy, but only if it’s within our internal boundaries. If it’s just to feel safe from disappointment, then the misplaced motivation only serves as a coping mechanism to protect ourselves.

    In this episode, Rohini and Angus offer helpful advice on how not to keep giving with our reserve fuel to the point of depletion. Doing so ensures we’ll only be running on fumes. It’s easier to get angry when holding on to old patterns of people-pleasing behavior.

    To overcome the conflict that results from a lack of appreciation, it’s important to be present and more honest with ourselves. We must be okay with being vulnerable.

    One important takeaway from Rohini and Angus’ discussion is when we speak our truth from a neutral place without fear of being judged, we can show up more authentically in our relationships. This creates a harmonious give-and-take dynamic that allows two people who love each other to enjoy the relationship.

    EP51 Doubting Your Doubts with Melissa Palazzo Hart

    EP51 Doubting Your Doubts with Melissa Palazzo Hart

    This episode is an insightful conversation with entrepreneur, coach, and Rewilder Guide Melissa Palazzo Hart about doubting our doubts and ultimately letting go. We also get to hear Melissa’s powerful poem which perfectly encapsulates the feeling of finally accepting ourselves as we are in the here and now.

    Melissa shares her experiences with self-doubt and self-esteem issues, despite all the success and happiness in her life. One milestone and success point after another, she continued to look for the perfect pieces for her life to fall all in line.

    Melissa’s emotions can be felt as she recounts her journey towards acceptance. She is a charismatic speaker able to pull our heartstrings, make us laugh, and help us see the light amid all the darkness and doubt in our minds.

    Rohini and Melissa dive deep into the importance of acceptance. Melissa shares how accepting ourselves as we are can give us more freedom to truly grow into full potential — to have the courage to explore and experiment. 

    As Rohini pointed out, knowing who we are allows us to come to a place of authentic empowerment. It becomes the foundation from which possibilities arise. 

    By recognizing our insecure thinking and doubting our doubts, we start to hear the voice inside ourselves that says everything is perfect as it is now. When we pay less attention to our negative thoughts and accept that we are good enough, we start to open ourselves up to possibilities in all areas of life.

    EP50 Our Stories of Neurodiversity with Angus and Rohini Ross

    EP50 Our Stories of Neurodiversity with Angus and Rohini Ross

    Every relationship includes two people often with different neurological orientations living in their separate realities. In this episode, Rohini and Angus share how they navigate neurodiversity in their relationship. Their brains work very differently, and they have different strengths and weaknesses. You will get to hear some of their hilarious escapades.

    Here are some teasers, Rohini lacks coordination when it comes to physical activities, while Angus is a gifted athlete and loves sports. Rohini loves to talk, while Angus needs time to organize his thoughts and says much less. During their conversations, Angus sometimes has to connect the dots due to Rohini leaving out crucial details because she’s already hit the ground running, and Angus can’t always read her mind.

    Their neurodiversity is even apparent in how they start their days. Rohini usually wakes up first and is running on all cylinders. Angus needs time to warm up and ease into the day. When it comes to finances and business development, Rohini is the visionary, and Angus excels in creativity and artistic talents. They are both, however, very intuitive, and empathic. There they share common ground.

    The key for relationships is to understand and respect the separate realities and neurodiversity of our partners.  Relationships are not about fixing your partner or changing them. They are for opening our hearts and celebrating differences and diversity. 

    We, humans, are always looking to experience greater balance and harmony. With an open heart and open mind, love and understanding are natural by-products that support couples in finding common ground and experiencing more balance and harmony in their relationships.

    Neurodiversity does not have to be a challenge for couples when it is understood. Embracing neurodiversity allows couples to see how to complement each other and it brings newness and fresh perspectives to relationships.

    One thing Rohini and Angus can wholeheartedly say is because of their differences, they are never bored in their relationship.

    This episode explores:

    EP49 Following My Deeper Wisdom with Alvin Dawkins

    EP49 Following My Deeper Wisdom with Alvin Dawkins

    This is a beautiful conversation with recording artist and Rewilding Guide, Alvin Dawkins, about the unshakable truth of who we are at our core despite our circumstances. We also get a special sneak preview reading from Alvin's forthcoming memoir, From Prison to Purpose, which chronicles Alvin's birth in prison to his being adopted and growing up in Alabama during the harrowing Jim Crow era, to his discovery of music and his true spiritual essence. 
     
    Alvin reminds us that no matter what we've been through, the wisdom behind life -- this creative energy force that infuses us all, remains intact no matter what. Not only is it intact, but it is guiding us, and we get to be part of it. He likens this truth to learning the mechanics of music, or an instrument so that we can play it -- but we then do better when we release the mechanical knowledge and become the instrument. That's when the music plays through us. The same can be said of the spiritual energy we are all a part of. For Alvin, music was the most powerful gateway that led him to embody his truth.
     
    For many years Alvin battled with depression and distorted self-limiting beliefs. Through his journey of finding freedom from depression and his many "internal prisons," he realized so many people are still trapped living in their own prisons, not living from their authentic selves, and he wrote his upcoming memoir to show others that it's possible to break free and to point readers to the truth of they are. As Angus points out, one of the best ways we can point people toward their true nature is by telling our own stories, recounting our own insights, so that people might start to see the truth and possibility in finding the same freedom. 

    This episode explores:

    "psyche": Greek for breath, life, soul. Psychology is ultimately the study of the soul.
    "higgledy-piggledy": in confusion or disorder / another Angus-ism

    Alvin Dawkins is a Rewilder Guide. He's also a jazz bassist, composer, songwriter, and recording artist. He's author of the forthcoming book From Prison to Purpose, which is a memoir that chronicles his birth in prison, and being adopted and growing up in Alabama during the ugliness of Jim Crow segregation, during the heart of the civil rights movement, to freeing himself from depression and finding his calling.

Quaequae ,

Transformative!

I’ve only just begun this journey, but Angus and Rohini are speaking from a place that’s heart-centered, compassionate, and self-aware. Their advice flips traditional therapy on its head and puts the ownership on each of us to drop into ourselves, to re-discover and settle into our natural states, and then use that deeper knowing to guide our relationships from a place of love. That feels so revolutionary in today’s cultural landscape. Thank. You.
