Every week in Los Angeles, Andrew Barrett guides a 20-min group meditation and discussion on a relationship-oriented topic like Sending Mixed Signals, Dating Multiple People at Once, or Being Ready. The experience is packed each week with highly conscious, interesting beings. Most are single and all desire to achieve healthy, meaningful relationships. Listen as we recap what we've learned about dating over the past four months since the experience began. You'll hear thoughts on money as it relates to dating, monogamy vs. matriarchy, and why you must directly ask the questions you seek answers to. Growth is found here.
Shame, Jim Carrey, and a vulnerability hangover flushed through my consciousness before entering this conversation with Anthony David Adams. Anthony - a Relationship Coach and part owner of Majagual (island in Panama) - and I are seekers, explorers of life and the human psyche. Relational love may be our greatest fascination. Because love, when in action, has the ability to breakdown barriers, open new mental/emotional portals, and evolve civilization. Curiosity has me wondering how our thoughts may shift your perspectives. Hmm.
Friends Nick Onken and Coach Yari have a spontaneous Saturday conversation with me about dating, connecting and unleashing fears. Movement - be it dance or just going out into the world - opens you up to newness, nearly freeing you, and allowing for magic moments of creation and connection, like this one. Both Nick and Yari, meeting for the first time, surrender by saying, YES! when asked to create this podcast only moments before record is pushed. Whether in New York City, Los Angeles or anywhere else in the world, meeting in real life always feels better than through an app... at least it does for me.
Energy is moving through us. I'm constantly shifting, changing and learning. Every podcast guest becomes a messenger. Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro, co-founders of The Energy Muse, uncomfortably pushed me forward - literally becoming my energy muse. Anxiety ran through my body as we recorded. As my own worst critic I needed time to shake and move beyond it. Months later, while Mercury is in Retrograde, I'm ready to share this episode with you. We talk crystals, opening your heart and preparing for love. Can you sense the change or shift in my being since episode one? I imagine you to have changed as well. Evolution is inevitable. Thanks for sharing this wild journey with me!
Is he an Alpha or Beta Man? A "Player" or there for you to have fun with (until you're done)? Brian Howie, Host of The Great Love Debate, and I bring you a double podcast. While the two of us may be at the center of the Dating Industry, each having spoken to thousands about dating + relating, we're still in our process of "figuring it all out." Join us for a fun conversation as we talk about unique male archetypes and a dragon penis tattoo. I imagine the conversation to further your thoughts.
Whether home in New York or Los Angeles, I find myself gravitating towards those with more life experience who appear enlightened. Driven by curiosity, I want access to their knowledge. Alorah Inanna, age 69, radiates Goddess energy. Her long gray hair, glowing skin, and white sheer wrapped gown make heads turn. I first noticed her at events and in pictures on social media. I wanted to know her. Alorah began working with the plant medicine, Ayashausa, in the 80ies. Guided by the Divine, she and her now deceased husband guided thousands of people towards more fulfilling relationships for over a decade. Now, at her scared space, a Temple in Marina Del Rey, CA, where we recorded this episode, Alorah guides singles and couples through sensual, not sexual, experiences. Alorah talks, as I listen intently, about why society is touch-starved, the difference between liquid and non-liquid contact, and how not talking provides an opportunity for deeper connection. Hear the messages dropped. What will you pick up?
Most people aren't meant to be together for forever. Within a breakup, you may find life lessons that prepare you for the love your soul truly desires. While challenging, breakups can also be cathartic, liberating and transformative if you're willing to make a conscious decision to move through the pain and heal. Amy Chan, known as the scientific Carrie Bradshaw, is the founder of Renew Breakup Bootcamp. Finally, a destination that accelerates recovery! Amy and I chat about how we've personally overcome heartache and the knowledge she's accrued from years of studying breakups. Our conversation flows in and out of dating and relationships, emphasizing how important it is to heal and stay in your center. Because when in alignment with your soul, connection to another who's in alignment as well comes with greater ease.
Are we half-souls seeking, searching for our other half? Or should we just look for a companion - someone to be our life partner? My gay best friend, Ezequiel Leal, and I journey through a conversation about soul connections. Over time we've learned to practice the discovery of self and to follow the heart. Having faith in life and love, while aligning with your own soul, may be what calls your soulmate into your vortex, instantly connecting you. Listen in and don't get tricked by time. For I believe time is an illusion. Karma, cause, and effect are always at play, especially in love.
Two years ago I ended a relationship after reading Bryan Reeves' article, "Choose Her Everyday (or Leave Her)." The article was read by millions. In this episode, I finally get to pick the brain (and heart) of the man known as the "Relationship Insight Ninja" - Bryan Reeves - on the difference between man and woman OR masculine and feminine energies. We flow in conversation about the journey of self-discovery that one must ride through to arrive in a state of readiness for deeply connected love. Are you ready?
We all come from sex. Its ecstasy makes me tingle. However, I advise, never sleep with someone you wouldn't want to be. Dr. Cat Meyer, a renowned Sex Therapist, and I have a deep conversation about the journey to sexual freedom and pleasure. Our intention for sharing our conversation with you is to spark self-query. We don't own the truth. We hope to guide you further to yours though. Listen. Then go into you. Own your unique sexuality as an adventure. This is your story.
Life is a progression. Our experiences create a reality that is designed by how we respond to each moment. Why am I this way? Because of deep introspection. Coach Yari, founder of Unleash! and The SoulBody Method, and I reflect on our previous relationships, the guides we learned from, and how new trains of thoughts were formed. We also discuss what we love about men...like their bodies and how they're designed to please us!
The mantra, SO PURKH, is known as the chant for men. Mara Saranpreet Luthane, a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, first told me about the prayer. Shortly after, I began a 40-day practice of reciting the prayer 11x daily. The Sikh mantra is said to uplift men, clear up karma around men, and bring out "The Man God" in men. Some even call it "the love mantra" as it's also said to call in your true (male) love. In this episode, Mara shares the heritage of SO PURKH and the power of chanting it. Recorded on Day 17 of my practice, hear how it's shifting my relationship with the masculine thus far. Both men and women are invited to chant SO PURKH. I imagine it to leave you buzzing and vibrating higher than ever before with a greater capacity for love in your heart.
