It can be incredibly vulnerable to receive, especially if you've been a giver or an over-giver your whole life. To receive means believing yourself to be worthy of attention, respect, care, compassion, and love. Intellectually you might believe this, but do you feel it in your body?Janne Robinson is an author, poet, friend, and a woman of distinction and we talk about the power of receiving. We dive into what blocks us from receiving the gifts this world and it's people have to offer us. To give and to receive means being available to ourselves which is some of the most challenging work we'll have to do in this lifetime. What you'll learn (or why you should care):• The power of receiving as an act of giving• The importance of compassion and empathy when it comes to seeing people for who they are and not their actions• How to receive love, vulnerability, and openness Where to find Janne:Website https://www.jannerobinson.com/Instagram https://www.instagram.com/jannerobinson/ Resources and LinksThis Is For The Women Who Don't Give a Fuck book https://amzn.to/2KGpNfkI am a Woman of Distinction poem https://www.jannerobinson.com/pages/i-am-a-woman-of-distinctionRea-Ann Wood-Schatz from Integrity Seminars https://integrityseminars.comGay Hendricks and The Big Leap https://hendricks.com/The Big Leap book https://amzn.to/2z4Vcl0Brenda St Louise is a Certified Money Coach https://www.brendastlouis.com/Meet Prem, the healer from Crete https://www.facebook.com/healthyself.prem/Attached, the book on Attachment Theory by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller https://amzn.to/2HeT5iP Learn more about The Love DriveWebsite https://thelovedrive.com/Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedriveNewsletter https://thelovedrive.com/newsletterFacebook https://www.facebook.com/thelovedriveshow/ Become a Contributing LovebirdSupport The Love Drive here https://thelovedrive.com/join/
Pleasure is fundamental to happiness, productivity, and health. And in this hyper-productive world, we're likely to put pleasure on the back burner as we strive to get more shit done.Euphemia Russell is a pleasure educator, and they believe that it's best to do less, better. I agree. Let's focus more on cultivating pleasure within ourselves (and with others) and less on being productive (and oh so busy!)They've dedicated their life to resourcing people with practical pleasure and embodiment tools through coaching, writing, and facilitation.

It's nearly impossible to have deeply connected relationships without vulnerability. And unfortunately, we weren't taught how to be vulnerable in school, or why it's important to stay open in your partnership. And, it's even harder for men to be vulnerable because the messaging has taught us that being vulnerable is a sign of weakness, when in fact, it's a relationship strength. Jayson Gaddis is the founder of The Relationship School, and the host of The Smart Couple Podcast, and is actively doing the work to help folks have healthier and more connected relationships. What you'll learn (or why you should care):• The importance of vulnerability and courage in your relationship• What it means to be emotionally available and how to move towards it• How relationships will highlight your areas of development and your zones of discomfortWhere to find Jayson Gaddis:The Relationship School https://relationshipschool.com/The Smart Couple Podcast https://relationshipschool.com/podcast/Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/therelationshipschoolInstagram https://www.instagram.com/jaysongaddisInstagram https://www.instagram.com/therelationshipschool/Resources and LinksRaising Boys to be Better Men with Rachel Guise https://thelovedrive.com/raising-boys-to-be-better-men-with-rachel-giese/Learn more about The Love DriveWebsite https://thelovedrive.com/Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedriveBecome a Contributing LovebirdSupport The Love Drive here https://thelovedrive.com/join/
