Codependency underlies all addictions. The core symptom of “dependency” manifests as reliance on a person, substance, or process (i.e, activity, such as gambling or sex addiction). Instead of having a healthy relationship with yourself, you make something or someone else more important. Over time, your thoughts, feelings, and actions revolve around that other person, activity, or substance, and you increasingly abandon your relationship with yourself. Codependents struggle with being who they think others want them to be. Through the healing of codependency, a human being finds the opportunity to become self-actualized in the purest form. This journey towards self-realization is as much neurological as it is spiritual and as much physical as it is meta-physical. Join me on the journey as I unpack Codependency with author and expert Lisa Romano, who has devoted her life's work to this topic.
In order to tune into her sacred longing, and to hear the cry of her true desire, Yogini Britt Steele went alone into the forest for several days with nothing more than a sheep skin, a feather, and her prayers. As Britt says on her website: “Each day you wake up and you either move through life consciously -- paying attention to the details, or unconsciously -- going through the motions. It isn’t what happens in your life that makes the greatest impact -- it’s the perspective through which you see your life and what you do with what you see.” Britt shares what she learned while in total isolation - how being at the mercy of the sun, sky, wind and rain expanded her world in a whole new way.
When you find out your partner has been sexually or emotionally unfaithful, you're in shock. You're angry and hurt, you feel betrayed, and you wonder whether anything you've believed about your partner is true. If you're the one who is involved with someone else, you feel like you've taken a drug you cannot resist, but you're stressed, confused, guilt ridden and afraid of being discovered. This disruption happens in over 40% of U.S. marriages. Today we're going to talk about why people break the bonds of fidelity, and the questions you must ask yourself---whether you're the one who has strayed or the one who discovers your partner. What tools can you use to cope with this relationship crisis? What can you learn from it? How can you navigate it, particularly if you have children and the stability of your home is at risk? And one more question to consider: Can an infidelity sometimes improve a marriage?

When you fall in love, you’re high on the ways you’re similar, in tune with each other and sexually excited. You fall in love with your differences too, loving what you admire in the other, and the adventurous contrast to your own history. But then comes the inevitable next stage of love: you’re painfully disappointing to each other. Both you and your partner stop putting each other first. You revert back to the quirky and unique people you are, who want things your way and now seem unaware or unwilling to sacrifice too much for the other. You often feel angry, distant, and resentful. You lash out, or withdraw. This is when the true task of love begins. Dr. Bonnie Comfort will be teaching us how to fight well, how to tolerate disappointment, how to forgive, and how to bring your expectations in line with the reality of a very imperfect other and a very imperfect you; ultimately leading to the most satisfactory intimacy.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: Penney Peirce leads the way in exploring the dynamics of energy, personal resonance, and our accelerating ultrasensitivity. A shift in frequency (thought patterns & attention), is what it takes to change darkness to understanding, fear to gratitude, and snagged situations to the very best teachers. Because science has long taught us to rely on what we can see and touch, we often don't notice that our spirit, thoughts, emotions, and body are all made of energy. Everything is vibrating. In fact, each of us has a personal vibration that communicates who we are to the world and ultimately shapes our understanding of home.

From the 1980's, when fitness meant Jane Fonda, tight, shiny, and neon-bright to the 1990's, when mega-gym's first appeared and everyone wore high-rise bike shorts and scrunchies, and we saw the birth of the late-night fitness infomercials to the 2000's, when there was an explosion in workout options from cycling to kickboxing to Pilates coming into vogue, a yoga booty and weight lifting for women, and interval and heart-rate based training, while wearing capri-length running tights and a technical tank top, to now ... lots to talk about with Molly Fox, one of the true fitness icon's, who has been part of each of these memorable decades of movement.
