Shades of Intimacy

How to Exit the Karmic Culdesac

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, becoming complacent in your relationship and accepting that it is “okay being good enough,” is a lie. Being real and raw with where you are and where you want to be is the first step; next is owning your shit. Look around at what you have, because that is what you want. The Intimacy Map will give you the key to find your way out of just good enough to achieve the amazing you desire.

We Interrupt This Pattern

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, when you are aware that you are getting stuck in a rut and believing the stories your mind and body tell you, it may be time for a pattern interrupt. Pressing yourself into your stories, so you can see them gives you the opportunity to change, to knock you sideways and let you own your emotions, instead of them owning you.

Scheduled Sex

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, the couple discusses the need to be creative and how that works with the masculine and feminine energies. In that, the desire to be creative in sex can be difficult, when the daily tasks of life creep in. Scheduling sex with your partner should be considered to create a structure that creativity can be expressed within. Spontaneity isn’t always an option, but thought-filled moments created with intention can deliver a sexual experience that far outlasts the evening.

Deep Breaths

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, the practice of deep breathing is used for many things including sex and meditation. When you can master the depth and speed of your breath, you can increase the pleasure you are experiencing in your orgasm; not just for you but your partner. Take the time to practice and get to know your body; listen to your breathing and improve all areas of your life.

Social vs Communal

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy Jason and Jennie discuss how something as socially acceptable as being late, propelled a group of women into a conversation that was communal. Being social is surface level, safe and clean; being communal is about getting in the mud, getting real and getting called on your bullshit. There is a depth to being part of a tribe; coming together, doing our work and getting shit done.

The Power of the Pussy: Meow

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy Jason is joined by Suzanne Wagner in the studio once again.  With the Elemental Feminine workshop behind them, Jason feels that the women that came got what they came for and more. Women feel profoundly alone most of the time, and when they are pushed and broken they leave as better versions of themselves. To learn to take in and let out, to breathe in and breathe out, teaches you to bring in fullness and then expel it so you can bring in more. Get rid of your Monkey mind, the accumulation of debris and chatter, allowing for authentic expression of who you are.

Anger, A Stack, and a French Whore

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, Jason and Jennie are readying for Jennie’s upcoming event, “The Elemental Feminine,” and she has all of her costumes out and ready. The feminine likes adornment and light, and makeup, hair, and clothing are only a part of that. A daringness and willingness emerge when a woman embodies her shapeshifter within.

Authentic Anger

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, Jason and Jennie have had a tough, event-filled month. Trying to help our partner in the overwhelm can sometimes be a hindrance, even with the best intentions. Taking on too much and having more packed on by your partner doesn’t make the situation any less trying. The couple has learned how to get through these moments over the years, but it doesn’t mean they don’t happen. Identify the things in your life that are being used to dull and numb you; push them aside for a period of time and see what happens.

Warning: Overwhelm

In this episode of Shades of Intimacy, Jennie is joined by her friend Melanie Lake to discuss the effects of being overwhelmed. With so much going on for Jennie over the past month, she was breaking down trying to get everything ready for her upcoming workshop. Knowing when to step back and let your friend, partner or child work through their feelings, and holding space for them to do so takes practice. In a “Let me fix that for you” society, we need to keep our hands to ourselves and be supportive without shutting them down. Sometimes a girl needs a foot rub and someone to do her laundry with.
