    BONUS: Am I Safe To Be Myself in My Relationships?

    In this special espresso shot of a bonus episode, we dive into the intricacies of relationships and self-discovery.

It can be a struggle to identify personal needs due to a lifetime of external expectations, but as we embrace self-discovery, we reclaim agency and embark on a journey towards self-awareness and fulfillment. Join me in this conversation that reminds us how to step towards this powerful reclamation.

    #376: The Couple Who Changed How I Relate: Lessons from the Godparents of Love

    In this episode, I have the absolute honor of welcoming legendary relationship experts Harville Hendrix & Helen LaKelly Hunt. I had to pinch myself when I met them – it was a full circle moment for me. I found Harville and Helen’s work at a time in my life when I was deeply confused about relationships. I didn't know why I was so good at talking about everything but my feelings. I didn't know why I chose the people I chose or was the way I was.

    In this episode, Harville and Helen discuss the transformative power of dialogue in relationships and the importance of curiosity and open-mindedness. We explore the complexities of emotional healing and self-awareness in relationships, the concept of unconscious attraction in romantic partnerships, and how childhood needs and experiences shape adult behaviors and relationships. Tune in for a profound conversation that will surely impact the way you relate in your life moving forward.

    Harville Hendrix Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt Ph.D. are co-creators of Imago Relationship Therapy and a social movement called Safe Conversations.

    In this episode, I welcome back Peter Crone, a writer, speaker, and thought leader in the realm of human awakening and potential. Peter and I discuss victimhood, personal responsibility, and the power of self-evolution. Peter talks about the importance of letting go, forgiveness, and reframing perspectives in relationships.

Peter’s work explores the fundamental issues that affect us all to foster a deeper understanding of our common humanity.

    In this episode, I welcome back the amazing Africa Brooke, a consultant, coach, speaker, podcaster and author renowned for her work in overcoming self-sabotage and self-censorship. In this conversation, Africa dives into the concept of "collective sabotage" and why she wrote her book, The Third Perspective, which explores brave expression in a climate of intolerance.

We also address the impact of cancel culture and the importance of creating avenues for honest curiosity and conversation to exist to lead us to more genuine connections. We advocate for truth-telling, embracing complexity, and challenging entrenched viewpoints as vital components for introspection and navigating collective dynamics with awareness and empathy. Tune in for a candid and open dialogue that encourages us to fully engage in our relationships and reshape our approach to differences. 


    Africa Brooke is the founder and CEO of Africa Brooke International where she provides consulting, coaching, and support to a global audience.
