I’m so excited about this conversation I had with my dear friend Janet who I’ve known for almost 20 years. She works with individuals and couples in the area of sexuality and relationship. Janet leads the Making Love Retreat workshops where couples focus on their mindful connection through sexuality. Janet also describes the potential of suppressed emotions and trauma being brought up, released, and healed through the conscious way of lovemaking rather than having sex in a conventional way. 

You must listen to this week’s episode to find out more.
