    Today's episode is all about how to improve communication with your significant other. One of the unfortunate effects of this pandemic is that too many people who were already feeling disconnected are now feeling even more isolated and disconnected than they did before.
    In this episode, I share an outline to help you clean up your communication with your significant other and talk about practical ways to make use of the skills that promote love and connection. I also discuss ways that you can make sure the communication in your relationship is healthy, functional, and productive -- and if it's not, you will know what to do to improve it after you listen to this episode.
    Listen in to find out what shapes communication, how to break bad communication habits, and ways to respond sensitively to your partner.

    62 New Book! More Than Words

    62 New Book! More Than Words

    I am celebrating today and I hope you will celebrate with me. This is a special show to me because yesterday my first book launched. More Than Words: The Science of Deepening Love and Connection in Any Relationship was released just in time for these few weeks leading up to Valentine's Day and I'm excited to talk about the book today and to give you a preview of what you are going to learn.
    I used my ten years of working with couples and the latest neuroscience and poured all of those secrets into the book. In this episode, I share highlights from the book and the keys to implementing these tips. I also talk about why we often feel disconnected in our relationships and how to be more present with a partner.
    Help me with my mission to spread love all around the world and listen in to this episode as I share the experience of writing my first book and discuss the joys and the challenges of shared living, ways to connect more deeply with a partner, and how to know if it's time to end a relationship.

Revelatory & Cutting Edge

This phenomenal podcast is chock full of cutting-edge practical information and tools that can be applied immediately. John gets right to the heart of the issues and holds a space of congruency, compassion, and empowerment. The content demystifies science-based concepts and demonstrates the real-life and real-time impacts of the data in an engaging and digestible format. The sound quality is great and the delivery is concise and warm. The guests are awesome as well. You can tell everyone involved with this show has attained a level of mastery and peace in their lives and is motivated by building community and serving others. The value of this content is beyond what I can put into words and I highly recommend you experience it for yourself. This is one of my favorite ways to learn about relationship skills and wellness in general. John walks his talk; he is the real deal. That shines through from this podcast, to his book, to his private practice and the creation of the Presence Wellness Center in Austin. His work demonstrates a level of excellence I’ve rarely experienced.

Great Podcast

Simple, concise, and very well structured. No fluff and stuff, just really good insight and tools. And the host had a calming but supportive voice. He doesn’t over share or under share. Love the science behind the cast.
