Do you have couple plans for the New Year? I don’t mean New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day or even the bathroom remodeling that you’re going to do in 2010. This episode is going to explore New Year’s Resolutions and how you can go about this unique form of working together to create “Our Resolutions“ that are not made to be broken — but to be kept, because they are the result of honest, open dialogue between you and your partner and represent what you both want in your...

With a nod toward the Solstice, this episode explores the meaning of inner as...

“‘How you can make your partner lovable‘ doesn’t make sense,” you say. “S/he is either lovable or s/he isn’t. I’ve got nothing to do with it.” Join us for this episode of Every Day Love, as we explore a different point of view. According to this point of view, how you experience your partner depends, among other things, on your selective attention and your tendency to label or not label.

Many people grew up feeling that love was primarily an obligation. You’re supposed to love your parents. You’re supposed to love your brother, even though he torments you. “Love as obligation” people understandably have a tough time with commitment. Love as obligation seldom feel warm and generous either to the giver or to the recipient. This episode introduces an attractive alternative — love that is an expression of inner joy and abundance. Seriously.

Whether we were well-loved or poorly-loved, we all learned about love when we were children. In childhood, we all learned about conditional and unconditional love, acceptance and rejection, affection and coldness, being seen and overlooked — by parents, relatives and others with whom we came in regular contact. On the basis of what we learned, we made decisions about giving and receiving love, pursuing love and staying away from it. Join us, as we talk about our early teachers about love.

You could say, “I love everybody.” But when it comes to loving specific individuals, like your spouse, or your father-in-law, isn’t it true that you have to know someone to love her or him? In this episode, we explore the relationship between love and knowing. In what ways can you love your partner, and how can knowing your partner more deeply (or more broadly) actually help you love that person better?
