An Intimate Coaching Session With An Anxious-Avoidant Couple – 395


What would you do if you got 51 text messages from your partner if you needed space? What would you do if your partner took space and continued to be distant with no return time? These are very normal anxious/avoidant relationship dynamics. 

In this episode I coach a couple through their anxious avoidant dynamic. I hope it serves you.

The Power of Meditation, Different Expectations, & Authority Figures – Dr. Reggie Ray – 390


In this week’s episode of The Relationship School Podcast, we speak with my former spiritual teacher Dr. Reginald “Reggie” Ray. I was also his TA in an undergraduate course on Tibetan Buddhism. This guy completely changed my life. 

Reggie is the @DharmaOceanFoundation’s co-founder and spiritual director, a university professor (retired) at Naropa University, and a highly respected meditation/dharma teacher. 

Our conversation covers a lot of ground, including how being spiritually minded is not necessarily synonymous with being relationally developed or particularly skillful, and the importance of treating every human with respect, despite any issue or conflict. 

Listen to the full episode to hear more about Reggie and his powerful journey.
