In Oct, 2013 I had the pleasure of facilitating a relationship clarity workshop in Jamaica and it was an amazing experience. I attended a spiritual business retreat hosted by my Akilah Richards of The Life Design Agency and Katrina Harrell. Akilah describes herself as Radical Self-Expressionist or Radical Selfie. She is also my mentor/friend + business partner.
For the first time I got to witness her interaction with her family. The level of support that I saw was so beautiful. What also stood out to me was the connection I observed between her and her husband. I couldn't help myself but asked how they make this flow so well. Through out the time in Jamaica the other ladies that attended, myself and Akilahs' husband stayed up all hours of the night engaging in deep conversation about many things; including relationships. We enjoyed delicious vegetarian food, practice yoga on the beach, experienced a "noble silence" practice; laughed cried, chanted "I Want" around a fire and took in some of the most beautiful scenery. Just thinking about it, brings back strong feelings like I'm there again.
Before I left, I interviewed Akilah and gained some powerful insight on how they make their marriage work. This 3 part interview is a great demonstration of what "relationship clarity" looks like and how to maintain a strong sense of self even when you are in love.
I suggest you get a pen and paper because you will hear some of the best relationship tips that you can put into practice, right now.
The Interview in 3 parts:
Conversation Part 1: Akilah shares how she stays strong in who she is in her relationship & Life. She also introduces us to an exploration approach to making her relationship work.
Conversation Part 2: Akilah shares more about her journey of creating a relationship that works for her without changing who she is.
Conversation Part 3: Akilah talks about doing self-exploration work to reclaim your sense of self while in/out of a relationship.
With Love & Gratitude,
