Reconnecting Relationships in a Post-covid World

The last two years of a worldwide pandemic and lockdowns have been unprecedented in our modern lives. Never before have we been confronted with extreme mental health issues, and exploding numbers of trauma, anxiety, depression, and sadly, suicides.

The other sad victim of this crisis is our relationships. And in particular the intimate relationship.

Covid was a time of extremes - of polarities. Some relationships have ended. Others are still hanging, but at times, by a thread. If there was emotional distance, it had amplified that distance.

For others, who were in a financially stable place, 2020 in Australia (except Melbourne) was a little like a rare holiday without the distractions or stress of work.

But 2021 had a different flavour - it went from 'we are all in this together' to 'being near you could threaten my life'. It was very heavy, fear-filled, and conflictual. And even if you didn't engage in that, the energy was oppressive and affecting.

The stress of a change in income for some, change in living situations, threatened job security, and the general air of conflict and the current climate on all levels have left their residue. How can we find a ray of hope in our relationship so that it can become a place of restoration, rather than a place of separation?

Living in such uncertainty, it's important to develop a bridge with each other, to reconnect in a way that is authentic and nourishing, and ultimately healing.

Never before has connecting in a way that is sustainable and meaningful been more important than now. We need it for our emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological well-being.

I am giving a one-hour online class this Thursday 15h September at 7 pm, supporting you to move from distant and disconnected to a loving authentic connection. Love to see you there!

You're not broken. You're just human.

You're not broken. You're just human.

A couple of months ago, beloved Aussie musician, Missy Higgins announced that 6 months prior, she and her husband had split up.

In typical Missy style, her words hit the mark.

"The shame of a “failed marriage”, a “broken family”, all the things I swore I would never let happen,...

Love is a Sacred Act

Love is a Sacred Act

Each one of us exists and is conceived, through the actual act of making love.

That 'act' may be less than loving at times. But if we fathom the idea that something that has been labeled as wrong, as shameful in just about every religion in the world, even to the point that celibacy is celebrated as a path to enlightenment, the whole of humanity is shrouded by this blanket of...

The Intimate Life of the Narcissist

The Intimate Life of the Narcissist

Twenty years ago, we never heard the term, 'Narcissist'.

Only in myths. Now everyone is talking about Narcissism, and thank god it's happening. I think it's been the hidden cause of serious relationship problems and sadly, abuse that has been left unchecked. But the narcissist can be right under our own roof. The more subtle ones. I wish I knew this in my 20's.

Like anything there is a spectrum, from the...

The Vulnerability of Receiving

The Vulnerability of Receiving

My third grandchild, Isla Rose was born last week. I was waiting in the wings, looking after her two 6 and 8-year-old sisters. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

After about a week, the anticipation of the birth and then subsequent relief at all being well, seeing Mum and bub and the whole family doing great, I could feel something inside going, 'ok, time for me'. That edge of...
