Jeanine Staples

How do you behave in love: Main Chick, Side Chick, Bonnie, Bitch, or Victim? Have you known the terror of emotional, psychological, or physical violence, and does that impact the way you show up in relationships and how you operate in the world?

As an alternative response to the five toxic lover identities, Jeanine presents a new way of loving and living. She introduces the Supreme Lover identity and illuminates its integral connection to social and emotional justice for and through Black women's wisdom. She gives us the tools to take ownership of our lover identities, and consciously seek greater emotional justice for our lives and communities.

Learn a more conscious way of loving and living in the world.

Jean Shinoda Bolen, Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman

 Jean Bolen

Jean Bolen

Feeling indomitable, untamed, unsubdued? Or maybe not so much?

Jean Bolen explores the myth of Atalanta, the famous hunter and runner in ancient Greek mythology, a mortal woman who is identified with Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. Atalanta began life abandoned and left to die because she was born a girl. She went on to conquer fierce animals and make a man prove himself before she would be his bride. She exemplifies the indomitable spirit in competent, courageous girls and in the women they become who will not be victims, no matter what.

Looking at today’s girls with grit like Princess Merida from the film Brave and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, Jean gives us ways we can explore and find our own uncrushable spirits.

Pouline Middleton, One Woman, Three Men: Conscious dating

 Pouline Middleton

Pouline Middleton

Who says you have to find "the one"? How about three men; one to talk about the meaning of life with, one to be intimate with, and one to be an handyman?

Divorced single mother Pouline made up her mind to date three different men, one for each area that was important to her. She began a very transparent conscious dating search online. Every man she connected with knew her plan and needed to state which area he wished to be considered for. The interactions were fun, funny and profound. 

Since creating Modern Love, Pouline has coached hundreds of people to get in touch with their three most important areas, whatever they may be. Her process also works for men seeking women and same-sex couples. It's fun, but under the humor is a serious look at bringing our highest consciousness to modern love and sex. Laugh and learn!

Ginette Paris, Heartbreak: New Approaches to Healing - Recovering from lost love and mourning

Ginette-Paris_edited-1-1-300x285.jpg

Look at your broken heart with the curiosity of a naturalist, as you would pay close attention to your pet, to understand what is going on.

The pain of mourning and heartbreak is neurologically similar to being submitted to torture. There seems to be only one way to end that agony; neurobiology calls it an evolutionary jump and psychologists call it an increase in consciousness. The whole brain must re-configure its connections and its thinking about love and relationships.

Lori Pye, PhD, joins us to talk about Ginette Paris' book Heartbreak: New Approaches to Healing - Recovering from lost love and mourning. A wider definition of love and a deeper understanding of its psychology will free you of the obsession for the missing partner and will teach your heart to love in a wiser manner.
