    The Future of Intimate Relationships with Bryony Cole: Episode 108

    Bryony Cole, founder of the Future of Sex and the world's leading authority on sextech, joins us in episode 108 of Relate! In this episode, we talk about the intersection of technology and sexuality and how the rapid advancement of technology is having a greater impact on our intimate relationships. We debate whether technology is enhancing or taking away from intimacy. Bryony also discusses how talking about sexuality is very taboo in society and that, in fact, sexuality goes beyond the physical, being mental and emotional as well. She shares that, while technology continues to progress, it is crucially important that we remember what makes us human.

These women work to create better opportunities for themselves and their peers, the aim is also to encourage women-led tech in the industry's overlooked areas: education, pleasure and, improved communication.”

    How To Become an Embodied Speaker with Marshall Davis Jones: Episode 106

    How To Become an Embodied Speaker with Marshall Davis Jones: Episode 106

    Marshall Davis Jones, Founder of MindBodySpeak, joins us for this episode of Relate, where he talks with us about the power of the voice. He believes that if we change our voice, we can change our life. We talk about why having a powerful and grounded voice is essential for communicating, why we need to be thinking in verbs instead of nouns, and why we must cultivate stability and quiet to connect deeply with people. Marshall also shares his insight behind his intention with technology, how we can't be above our biology, and why we must find the fastest way to silence.

    Please check out http://mindbodyspeak.com/ to learn more about Marshall's incredible work.

    For years, Marshall Davis Jones relied on words alone. As a performance artist and spoken word poet, he thought having the right words was enough. But after exploring movement practices and researching the connection between sound and listening, he discovered that to change your life, you have to change your voice. MindBodySpeak is his unique approach to communication, going beyond words and conflict resolution to address the real power behind voice— combining body language and tone of voice to create BodyTone. He’s trained law enforcement, corporations, college students and martial arts instructors, and has spoken on numerous TEDx stages . With MindBodySpeak, he offers his voice to help you find the way back to yours.
