We’re continuing our series on sex and spirituality, now focusing on intimate relationality. In this episode, we address the “needs of self vs. needs of other” issue that morality, religion, philosophy, and spirituality have wrestled with for thousands of years…and resolve it.

That’s our frame for going deeper into the content of codependence, as well as bringing forward the concept of the split between the second and fourth chakras as the root of most intimate relationality problems. We also introduce the key distinction between responsiveness and responsibility, talk about how we unconsciously attract partners based on wounds, how the body is inside the soul as flesh-based expression, and more.

As always, please listen to this podcast from the beginning and in order.
