Ep.006 Unpacking the Stages of Relationship + How to Create More Intimacy with Mark Groves
Relationships are the biggest determinant of our long-term health and happiness. Aka, the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships.
This week, human connection specialist, Mark Groves invites us to soften, take responsibility, and CREATE the LOVE.
Notes from Show:
Relationships are why we are here. And the more fulfilling our relationships, the happier and healthier we all are. Taking responsibility for how we show up in relationship with others is step one in cultivating a deeper level of relational self-awareness. This week, Co-Founder of Zura Health Kylie McBeath, and her partner Mark Groves use the container of their relationship to explore the topics of marriage, boundaries, conflict, and building intimacy and connection.
We can learn how to upgrade our relationships by learning the tools we need to understand our emotional landscape as well as our triggers + patterns in relationship. We can’t change the past, but we can choose to learn from it & use it as a catalyst for a more aligned & connective future. We hope you’ll join the ride, and create the love in your own life.
