Kongit Farrell is a Goddess Powerhouse, no two ways about it (just take a look at her bio!!) She's been taking a stand to empower her clients and community to form and sustain healthy, empowered relationships with ourselves and each other.   

On this episode Kongit and I go deep into clarifying the type of relationships we want, doing the work we need to do in order to attract and sustain those relationships and fine tuning our ‘Guy-Q’ so that we are clear about and courageous enough to say yes to what works and no to what doesn’t.

If you’re interested in the world of dating, relationship and ‘Guy-Q,’ allowing others (and ourselves) to be where we are in our relating while being powerful to either embrace or walk away from a situation that doesn’t serve us, then this episode is for you!

There are some juicy tips so tune in for my conversation with Kongit Farrell on Ignite Intimacy!
