Do you struggle at times to love your partner? Many people do. Some, because they’re with the wrong partner. But for many of us it’s because we never learned how to make love easy. One reason is that very few people actually believe love can be easy. We hear so much about relationships being hard […]
Make This Marriage Your Only Marriage
Ironic isn’t it, that for many, the notion of “till death do us part” has come apart at the seams. As many as 50% of Americans who happily walked down the aisle end up walking away from their marriage. None of us need to be wedded to the idea that this has to be.
How your marriage ends up can be determined by how you two start out. Being married doesn’t mean you know how to be married. But, that’s something you can learn to do and you need to start early.
Becoming a couple and still being two individual people is a challenge. One that takes patience and nuance. Meeting the needs of your “other” while getting your own needs met depends on your ability to communicate with them. Unexpressed emotions only grow, they don’t go away.
Relationships, especially long term ones, are made up of individual moments. Years are made of days and days are made of hours.
At a Live Conscious retreat you will learn to make each one count.
You will learn the language of relationship longevity. Learn to re-examine and re-align your expectations so they are attainable and realistic. You will learn to re-view your inner goals so your relationship is supported in the long run.
A Live Conscious retreat teaches you not just to talk but to communicate. How to ask for what you want so you can get it. How to speak your truth so you get heard. And how to listen deeply and appreciate the values that brought you two together.
In the end, a happy, successful marriage is simple, but not easy to obtain. It takes work, but the more work you do at the start the more you will have to work with as the years go by.
What does it look like, feel like, sound like to have a healthy heart connection within your romantic love relationship? This question arose recently when I was working with a client. The man I was working with is very healthy, extremely bright, and very committed to his own personal development. But the more we talked the […]
Do you have a hole in your heart? Have you had different romantic partners, but the basic dynamic between you remains the same? The dynamic, in short, is this—you don’t get what you want. Somehow you keep making the same mistake, either choosing the wrong person or looking for the wrong thing from the person […]
I spend several hours every week watching smart people make terrible mistakes in how they treat their lovers/partners. What follows is a list of the four major mistakes I see couples make. If I do nothing more than commit myself to avoiding these four mistakes, I radically improve the quality of my partnership. 1. Comparing […]

A Map For Romantic Relationships Walk, run, rest. Hop, skip, jump. Birth, life, death. Everything has a rhythm—an order. This is true for romantic relationships but most people don’t know or pay attention to the order. It goes like this: Dating, Relating, Mating. And when I use the term “mating,” what I mean is entering […]
What is love? Certainly “what is love?” is a nebulous question with probably as many answers as there are people. One definition that caught my attention recently was Victor Hugo’s quote, “To love another person is to see the face of God.” If we were to believe that this is what love is, wouldn’t we […]
Maintaining a loving relationship is an exciting new category for us to explore. In our recent retreats we’ve had more young people participating and we realize the remarkable opportunity that they have by learning these skills early in life.
