Dr. Cheryl Fraser, clinical psychologist and Buddhist sex therapist, expertly redefines desire and how to succeed in long-term love for couples in every stage of relationship. A rare combination of academic credibility, humor, straight talk, and life-changing advice, Dr. Cheryl has helped thousands of couples jumpstart their love life and create passion that lasts a lifetime. She resuscitates relationships in her online immersion program, Become Passion–Create Love that Lasts a Lifetime, by nurturing intimacy, bringing back the thrill, and reigniting sensuality. With a PhD in Clinical Psychology, Dr. Cheryl takes complex issues—love, sex, and relationships—and makes them understandable, entertaining, and actionable, ultimately reawakening couples to the sizzle they think they’ve lost. After working with many couples and diving deeply into the causes of happiness and suffering, Cheryl saw how the constant longing for love, the myth of the soulmate, and the basic misunderstanding of what makes relationships actually work sets couples up to fail. She wrote Buddha’s Bedroom: The Mindful Loving Path to Sexual Passion and Lifelong Intimacy, her book that educates couples on the passion triangle—the three keys to great relationship—which leads to a path of deep, meaningful love and even transcendent sex. Her wildly popular podcast, Sex, Love & Elephants is a place where listeners who are afraid to speak up about their relationship issues can discover science-based love and sex tips, relatable Buddhist wisdom, and community. When Dr. Fraser isn’t reviving relationships and helping couples love better and longer, she’s supporting rescue animal organizations with five rescues of her own. You can also find her going on weekly dates with her husband in Vancouver Island, Canada where they happily reside, practicing the passion she preaches.
