We will be featuring special guests, experts, and everyday people who’ve got stories to tell and opinions to share about LoveRomanceIntimacy, and Sexuality. The point is to get this conversation out there in a much bigger way. This is not a typical ‘interview’ style program - it’s an ongoing conversation.

Paul Browde is a brilliant, beautiful and loving human being. I had the pleasure of witnessing Paul demonstrate a connection practice he uses with his couple clients at Esther Perel’s event in NYC last November. Paul blew me away with his energy, authenticity, generosity and grace. This man has a way with getting straight to your heart in his every way of being.

We sat next to each other during the first part of the day and, getting to know each other a bit, I knew I sharing Paul and his work on Ignite Intimacy would be powerful.

Join doctor, psychiatrist, storyteller and relationship therapist, Paul Browde and I as we do a deep dive into romantic relationships, listening, being with others, non judgement, connection, developing intimacy, the power of a simple apology and dreaming together on Episode 106 of Ignite Intimacy!

Damiana Rahshelle and I met as I was standing outside of Christina Weber's (Episode 65) annual fundraising event Feminine Weapon. I was immediately taken by her gorgeous energy, open heart and the love pouring out of her.

We discussed self-love, the power of releasing, turning on our sensual energy and magnetism and I said ohhhh YES!!! We MUST have you on the podcast during the month of February when we’re discussing V-Day, self love and all of this juicy goodness!

During this episode you will experience two deep meditations that we encourage you to create the time and space to dive into, with your journal available to write out anything that comes to you. It was so deeply healing for me to sit through these meditations with Damiana!

Enjoy my conversation with Damiana Rahshelle as we go on a journey into the soul, into the heart and into the depths of the love, pleasure and joy that is available to us as we choose to begin each day creating and connecting to our magic within on Episode 105 of Ignite Intimacy!!

When she spoke with me about a meditation she does for her clients a light bulb went off! It was a no brainer, we agreed it could be super powerful for her to walk me through this meditation live on the line as I identify, clear and rewrite subconscious codes around dating, love and romance so that you, too, could join us in this meditation.

I’ve had a mixed relationship to Valentine’s Day through the years. When I was younger I remember the cards and classroom parties, and also the anxiety of whether the boy I liked would give me a card or show some sort of interest towards me on this special day of love.

As I grew up and became an adult I realized that for many years Valentine’s Day carried with it feelings of sadness, disappointment, anger and frustration. Being mostly single in my adult life I haven’t had many boyfriends on Valentine’s Day, and the few times I had a boyfriend during the month of love they weren’t into the Hallmark holiday aspect of Valentine’s day. 

Through the last few years my relationship has shifted towards Valentine’s Day. Instead of focusing on what I don’t have, my journey into self love has me enjoying the fun around this day of love instead of feeling bad about it.

A few weeks ago I was inspired to bring together a group of folks for the first Ignite Intimacy roundtable to explore each of our relationships to V-Day and how to navigate this sometimes tender or agonizing day of love. 

With a reminder to love ourselves first and to keep it real wherever we’re at with V-Day, Join me with Megan ‘Z’ Zimring, Oren Harris and Dr. Cat Meyer as we explore, discuss and unpack the many faces, experiences, attitudes towards, recreation of and keeping it real about Valentine’s Day on Episode 103 of Ignite Intimacy!
