    Mars and Venus in the Modern World with Dr. John Gray & Christine Eartheart

    Mars and Venus in the Modern World with Dr. John Gray & Christine Eartheart

    Over 18 years ago, I was a substitute teacher, and I found a relationship book on the teacher’s desk in the classroom I was in for the day. While the students focused on their work, I started reading it and was instantly enamored. I went home that night and ordered my own copy, realizing there was so much more to understand about relationships than I ever imagined.
    It was the first book on relationships I had ever read, and even people who aren't necessarily into personal development have likely heard of this one particular book: Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus by Dr. John Gray.
    In fact, USA Today listed it as one of the top 10 most influential books of the last quarter-century and, in hardcover, it was the #1 best-selling book of the 1990s. It has been translated into approximately 45 languages and sold in more than 100 countries. Still today, it continues to be a bestseller.
    Dr. Gray has appeared repeatedly on Oprah, as well as on The Dr. Oz Show, TODAY, CBS This Morning, Good Morning America, and others. He has been profiled in Time, Forbes, USA Today, and People. He was also the subject of a three-hour special hosted by Barbara Walters. Dr. Gray has now written over 20 books, including his most recent: Beyond Mars and Venus: Relationship Skills for Our Complex Modern World.
    His passion is helping men and women understand one another better, and we dive into just that in this insight-filled conversation.
    Some of what we cover...
    - How how John Gray went from a celibate monk to being a best selling author on relationships
    - What causes a breakdown in communication
    - The role of male and female hormones in creating a harmonious sexual relationship
    - How good communication can bring out the best in your partner
    - Learn how Dr. John structures his therapy sessions very differently for men vs. women
    - The unique needs of men and women in love and why selfishness is sometimes good
    - Steps to shift from being in a power struggle to being connected and open
    - How biology helps sustain love and grow it over a lifetime
    - Strategies to get more of what you want in your relationship
    - Learn what a Thriving Relationship means to Dr. John Gray

    The Female Pleasure Revolution with Mama Gena and Christine Eartheart

    The Female Pleasure Revolution with Mama Gena and Christine Eartheart

    This episode is so important for women -- and for those who love them.
     
    I had the absolute honor and delight of sitting down with the famously beloved Regena Thomashauer, endearingly known as “Mama Gena” and celebrated as an icon, legend, media personality, and revolutionary – and the vivacious author of the NY Times Bestseller called Pussy: A Reclamation.
     
    If you are (or care about) a woman who has ever…
    …felt shame about your body or sexuality,
    …dimmed your power or light,
    …and/or denied, ignored, dismissed, or overrode your own pleasure and desires because you didn’t think they were important…
    …oh my goooodness, you are in for such a treat this episode.
     
    Mama Gena’s mission is all about helping women reclaim what it means to be fully expressed and embodied. She believes that women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet, and she has taught countless women to turn on their innate feminine power to create a life they love.
     
    Regena’s approach stems from decades of research in the social, cultural, and economic history of women, and she has been recognized widely as a leading expert in modern feminism. She has been featured on Elle, Glamour magazine, Newsweek, TEDx, 2020, and countless other media outlets.
     
    In her classroom and through her books, she shifts the way women hold their sexuality and identities, both individually and culturally. On her website it reads: “She creates communities of women who are so outrageously and wildly expressed that they are loving the world back to itself.” Big yes to that!
     
    After hearing the buzz and excitement about this book a few years ago, Bret I got the audio version and listened to it together on a long road trip. We both enthusiastically recommend it and have since shared it with countless clients and friends.
     
    May you – and anyone you love – be served and inspired by this juicy episode and by getting a glimpse into what it looks like to reclaim what it means to be a woman – and to be fully turned on from being alive.

    Heal Your Nervous System to Heal Your Relationships with Sarah Baldwin and Christine Eartheart

    Heal Your Nervous System to Heal Your Relationships with Sarah Baldwin and Christine Eartheart

    If you are into personal growth, you may be wondering what all the buzz is about the nervous system these days.
     
    It's for good reason and is a personal passion of ours and woven deeply into the work we do with couples, especially when it comes to helping partners develop secure attachment with one another.
     
    Today, we are so excited to invite you to join expert Sarah Baldwin, training staff at the Polyvagal Institute, to receive revelatory insights into your own nervous system, and learn how regulating it can bring about profound shifts in your ability to relate to yourself, others, and the world.
     
    This particular podcast episode is a bit more like a mini-training, rather than simply an interview, because Sarah is just so gifted as a trainer and is a beloved shining star in the world of understanding polyvagal theory and the nervous system. I adore how clearly and compassionately she explains things and how she speaks openly of her own harrowing journey of an entire childhood filled with abuse and neglect and the impact it had on her -- and her way out of trauma and into healing.
     
    There are two things I continually hear Sarah say in the work she does:
    - "You make sense."
    - "If my nervous system can do it, so can yours."
     
    So beautiful.
     
    Below are the timestamps to see all of the goodness we cover....
    2:15 - How Sarah's complex childhood trauma inspired her work in somatic healing
     
    4:30 - Why going to talk therapy for complex trauma is like going to the ophthalmologist for a hip injury
     
    6:30 - How to discharge traumatic energy from our bodies
     
    11:15 - A good place to begin your healing journey
     
    13:00 - Dysregulation and learning how to drive the vehicle that is your body
     
    18:25 - How our very own "Special Ops Team" keeps us safe
     
    38:27 - You make sense, and you are not alone
     
    40:30 - Words of wisdom for when we see our partner in a dysregulated state
     
    44:55 - How our childhood creates the blueprint for our adult relationships and how to see your partner differently in challenging times
     
    53:55 - Helpful ideas to regulate and come to the safety of the present moment, and the role of Bob Ross and Mr. Rogers in Sarah’s life
     
    1:02:48 - What having a thriving relationship means to Sarah Sarah has a huge heart, a deeply empathetic and grounded presence, and is an inspiration for countless people longing to find their way out of pain and towards the love, inner freedom, peace, and connection we all long to feel.
     
    😍 Who is Sarah Baldwin?
    Sarah Baldwin is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and Trauma Coach who is trained in Polyvagal interventions and is on the training team at the Polyvagal Institute. She specializes in somatic trauma healing, attachment work, parts and inner child work, and nervous system regulation.
