Episode 26: About our relationships, with Maya Light

My dear friend Maya Light is back on the podcast! Since the theme is Commitment this month, I knew all of you would want to hear more juicy stuff about relationships, etc. So I thought to myself: Who’s another ex I can ask to be on the show? Can I ask my therapist?? And then after laughing for awhile, I realized that giving you a window into my deep, daily musings with Maya would be the most open and vulnerable thing I could offer. As an event producer, DJ, energy worker, and writer, Maya brings a deep, embodied approach to the topic of relating. And she and I geek out almost every day, talking about attachment, healthy relating, and moving beyond co-dependence. In this episode you’ll get to hear us share some of our personal journaling on the topics of safety, comfort, bonding, curiosity, capacity, availability, and desire. Plus we’ll read you our red-yellow-green light list for what we seek in our relationships!
