Dear Friends,

This teleseminar was a wonderful experience of coming together in conversation with relationship experts. They shared their work, their personal stories and how their techniques serve in Bridging the Gender Gap between the masculine and the feminine so that men and women can successfully work in partnership and collaboration to create a balanced world where all are honored as equals. Here are just a few of the nuggets we learned:


John Gray

From Dr. John Gray, we learned that men need communication that builds their testosterone – things that make them feel appreciated and needed for their intellect and their actions. Women need communication that increases their oxytocin – things that make them feel heard and secure. John told us that fully 90% of our communication in relationship is the tone we use. It was fascinating! 

Alison Armstrong


Alison Armstrong shared what she’s learned about men in years of exploring gender relationships. “The opportunity is to become curious about what you can trust each other for. What do you wish I trusted you for?” Alison told us that we tend to pay a whole lot of attention to “can I trust him/her?” But what she’s discovered is there is far more value in exploring “am I trustworthy?



Kathleen McGowan discussed the Divine Feminine, and how women must stop manipulating men by asking them to be open and then using it against them, and men must stop their judgment about women’s emotions and vulnerability. Kathleen’s approach to finding love:  “Go and be the best person you can be, and you will attract the love you are seeking.”



Claire Zammit

Craig Hamilton high rez

Claire Zammit and Craig Hamilton shared that until 2010 the word feminine was a synonym for the word weak and the word power was a synonym for masculine. Both genders want to be actualized and want to be partners; our job is to find ways to combine the genius of both masculine and feminine qualities and values.



Marianne Williamson cropped

Marianne Williamson shared her perspective that sometimes we confuse authenticity with the notion that whatever self indulgent comment comes into our brain should come out of our mouth. This is a way we disempower ourselves. Authentic communication means being very careful about respecting the other’s choices and freedoms, to seek to understand as well as be understood, to give as much as receive, and to be careful to be kind


Gay and Katie Hendricks cropped 2

Drs. Gay & Katie Hendricks told us that appreciation is the single most powerful way to establish intimacy in any relationship, and that criticism is one of the main reasons people break up. They encouraged us to open ourselves to others and get curious; curiosity creates intimacy with your partner, and is a great aphrodisiac. 


And there were so many other insights! We learned so much, and we know you will too. You still have the opportunity to purchase the series so you can listen whenever you want. Some of these you’ll repeat over and over again!

 You can purchase just one topic – Trust, Vulnerability, Authentic Communication, Intimacy – or the whole teleseries! Click here to see your purchase options. Whichever you choose, we know you’ll find these recordings incredibly valuable!


Love and Blessings,
