Quote of the Week

“Many people think passion is a fuzzy feeling that makes taking action effortless.  In fact, it’s the gritty courage and tenacity to forge onward…” - Martha Beck

Gritty Courage

When we think about an athlete who performs with passion we think ‘intensity’ and ‘tenacity,’ yet when we think about romantic passion, we somehow assume that ‘it just sort of happens.’  Why is that?!  How many relationships could have been salvaged if partners did not make this assumption about ‘effortlessness?’  Aargh!

In my new phone seminar, Recovering Intimacy in Your Relationship (starts May 5, click here for more details) I provide couples the tools they need to reconnect and reignite their intimate feelings for each other.  And one of the first things I intend to reinforce is this idea that recovering intimacy and passion takes courage!


Is it time to recover the intimacy you so cherish?  This multi-week Intimacy seminar will get you going with critical information, tools that work, and weekly exercises.  It's designed to provide you with practical and immediately useful information to strengthen your connections. Starts May 5th.
