How do you cultivate meaningful bonds in your relationships?
This week I’m joined by Maya Light, one of my closest friends. Maya and I are on a journey to replace co-dependency with co-regulation. In the episode we discuss methods for creating supported relationships, knowing where your boundaries for receiving are, and the human need for closeness. We also look at attachment theory and how your early bonds can shape your relationship style in adulthood, as well as finding a balance between your personal needs and the needs of those with whom you are connecting. Maya is my daily voice-memo check in buddy (we explain in the episode), and now you all are going to get to hear some of what we share about everyday!
Information on Body Mind Centering, the training program where Maya and I connected.
Here’s a nice overview of adult attachment theory: https://www.psychologyinaction.org/psychology-in-action-1/2018/5/1/adult-attachment-theory
And I highly recommend the book “Attached” by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller.
Maya’s lovely article on the Good Men Project called “Shifting to Inter-depedence Through Co-Regulation”
