We’ve got a fun episode this week! We’re talking with Ashay — a life coach-esque, healing, inspiring woman whose life revolves around helping other women through health, diet, and sexuality. She’s now partnering with her partner Lucian, and they’re connecting about relationships and sexuality in their own unique, authentic way. They’re a relatively new couple but their soulful connection is very deep.
This episode, Ashay and Lucian talk about feminine and masculine energy, reigniting the passion in their relationship, naming the different sides of themselves (and how naming these different sides can benefit your relationship and help communicate your current state), how being present and vulnerable is one of the most important things you can do in your relationship, and actionable tips to employ in your life to better address triggers and be open to receiving.
Lots of interesting topics come up in today’s conversation. We talk about what can you do to begin reconnecting to all the different sides of yourself that you’ve been neglecting over the years, getting over your fears and stop them from holding you back, and how to let go of expectations and embrace change.
It’s our absolute honor to have this inspiring couple in today’s episode so we hope you enjoy it as much as we did talking with them!
