The Deep Psychology Of Intimate Relationships


And join the movement to bring Relationship Education to Life!

Dear growth-development oriented friend,

If you are half-way awake and you look around, you see there is a huge amount of suffering in the world. Not just far away, but close at home.

Behind your neighbors happy smiles lives a man or woman who feels deeply alone, even though they have hundreds of “friends” on facebook. Hell, they might even act happily married but deep down they have been on antidepressants for years.

And in the privacy of your own mind, you might admit that you too are suffering, at least some of the time, right?

And, if you look even closer, you see that the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships. And if you have ever had a life-partner and you are disconnected or in a fight, life is just harder.

And, if you have a primary relationship that is stressful on a daily basis?  Your day is not only more difficult, your body feels the burden. And, the research is now clear how damaging it can be to our health to have unsatisfying or stressful relationships.  

You get this right?

Now, what’s interesting here is if we feel challenged or incompetent when it comes to how to have a successful long-term relationship, it is not our fault.

Because no one is taught us how to have a stellar intimate relationship. We were merely “shown” how to have a partnership by the people we were in most contact with such as our parents. And, no offense to them, but they had a lot of limitations. As did their parents, and their parents. And none of it is their fault.

None of our ancestors formally learned.

“How to have an Intimate relationship” was simply not taught in school, in church, in sports, or anywhere else in a formal way.

So, how do you expect to have a good one then? Well, if you do expect yourself to have a great relationship without ever learning, that would be like expecting yourself to be an Olympian without ever training. It will only lead to massive frustration and you beating yourself or your partner up over time.

So, you get what you got and unless you get an education and learn a different way, you won’t be improving your relationship skills anytime soon.

However, there is one way for us to change the generations of mis-education around intimate relationships...

Enter The Relationship School®.

The Relationship School® is my mission to help people learn the class they never got in school. The relationship school will teach everyday adults how to do this crazy thing called long-term partnership.

Learning how to do "intimate" relationships of course, only serves to help our family, friend, and business relationships as well.

In addition, The Relationship School® will train mentors and ambassadors who will go into schools and teach teens and young adults the very same skills, so they can grow up and rock their intimate and interpersonal relationships.

I know, my idea is bold and a little crazy. But with your help I know we can pull it off.

Why do I care?

  • Because I got bullied in high school
  • Because I didn’t know how to talk to girls
  • Because once I figured that out, I wasn’t being authentic, it was a game to get them to like me
  • Because I felt deeply alone
  • Because I thought about suicide in high school because I didn’t understand the point of life
  • Because my parents didn’t know how to connect with me
  • Because I spent my 20’s failing hard in my intimate relationships which added to a deep sense of inadequacy that I felt.
  • Because had I learned this class in school, I’m guessing I would have had deeper, more fulfilling, less painful relationship experiences
  • Because kids everywhere are like I used to be. Suffering, hurting. Feeling alone. Not just kids. Adults too. Loads of suffering.

The good news here is we have a massive opportunity to put a dent in this epidemic.

If you want to help me teach relationship to kids and adults, you gotta learn the skills first.

Hence, our inaugural 9 month training in Boulder Colorado that will train you to become a certified relationship mentor.

By training at The Relationship School®, you not only learn how to do intimate relationships, you will learn how to navigate extremely tricky people and dicey interpersonal conflicts in your work and family relationships.

You will feel like the most emotionally mature person in the room who can handle just about any relational dynamic. This feeling of true self-confidence is very satisfying.

Welcome to the tribe of people who will change the face of relationship education forever by being a living example of someone who has relational awareness, empathy, and literacy. 

Let’s do this!

Big respect,
