Developing a deep connection with a partner does not just happen on its own like the movies may lead us to believe. The path to a soulful relationship takes deliberate effort, and the rewards can be beautiful. Listen to today’s episode to learn how to develop more meaningful relationship connection.
In this episode with Dr. Chelsea Wakefield, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:
  • How we progress from enchantment to disconnection in our relationship
  • Using relationships as a path for personal growth
  • The importance of not projecting onto your partner
  • How to avoid the drama triangle that is common in relationships
  • How to do things out of generosity and not obligation
  • And much more!
