Insights and Invites


Tammy: Humans are created with a capacity to have amazing sexual pleasure. Push yourself to learn how to replenish each other.  

 Dave: Make time to intentionally have sex with your partner.   

 Liz: Monogamous does not have to mean monotonous.


  • Instead of waiting for your partner to change, recognize the part you play in conflict and seek to change it without any guarantee that your partner will do the same. You may find that your partner’s response to your change is exactly what you hoped. 
  • Examine whether there is contempt in your relationship. If you “horibilize” your partner by objectifying them and only seeing their faults and their weaknesses, you might be guilty of contempt. 
  • As yourself, “ If I were to give my whole heart to my partner, what would it occur to me to do?”. Be still and then heed that inner call to connect.
