This month there has been a general trend of discussing relationships. I think relationships are the most important things we could ever invest our time and energy into as we are literally in relationship with everything, from being in a relationship with yourself, your partner, your friends, and your family to your work or business and the entire world around you. How can we cultivate deeper relationships? How can develop relationships that last?
In this episode of the Align Podcast, I'm joined by Colin Guinn and Christie Woods who have been together for almost 20 years, and to me, that is beyond fascinating. They discuss why we need to take conscious responsibility, be aware of our ego, say yes to growth with our partner, and give our partner permission to be human. Plus, we touch on the topics of tantra, sex magic, psychedelics, and relationship plateaus.
Colin and Christie are dear friends of mine, although you may know the two from winning Season 31 of The Amazing Race. Colin is a serial entrepreneur, innovator, and pioneer in drone development and technology and Christie is an actress, model, Ms. Texas, breathwork facilitator, and a complete badass.
