Ready to Grow

Plantando na terra seca

What happens when the growing pains include an entire shattering of what has been?  Is there a way to ever find peace again?  In this episode Jenny discusses some ideas for how to see the shattering as a part of the growth.

In this episode Jenny references the stages of Intimacy as presented by Robert Augustus Masters in the book, “Transformation Through Intimacy.”  She doesn’t go into detail about the different stages, other than to acknowledge them.  If you’re interested in learning more about this perspective feel free to check out the book:

Why Did They Do It?!

Over 20 days after the new LDS Handbook 1 Policy was leaked people are still asking…”Why did they do it?”

In this episode Jenny explores the authoritarian power dynamic that can exist in marriages, friendships, work relationships…and yes, religion. 

While such a bold move has got many questioning, this choice gives us more information as to how the LDS Church continues to view itself in terms of power and authority.

I will mix in teaching some therapeutic ideas as I answer questions, so it should be helpful even if you don’t come prepared with any questions.

Let’s Talk About SEX Baby!

Close up of four feet in a bed

Like many things in life, sex can be a journey. How do you find peace with where you are today, while moving towards the kind of sexual life that you truly desire?

There are so many resources to help you work towards the kind of sex life you desire.  Here are just a few places that may offer some interesting ideas.  (Disclaimer: I found these while doing a simple google search on resources.  I do not endorse any of these, as I don’t have enough experience with their work, but I wanted people to see there are a variety of resources that can help you access the experiences you desire sexually…with yourself, others, or a partner).  Some of these resources offer free newsletters, etc. so feel free to check things out.
