Practical techniques to create deeper intimacy

How to understand and communicate your needs more effectively (and why this is important)

How to translate judgements into empathy

Why learning to communicate more effectively is KEY to a thriving long-term romantic and sexual relationship

This episode is a MUST LISTEN for anyone who wants to have a thriving long-term relationship. Why? Because creating this kind of relationship takes a certain set of skills that 99.7% of people didn’t learn growing up. I certainly didn’t…

I’ve studied with Steve Torma for years, and practicing what I’ve learned from him has fundamentally changed EVERYTHING about my romantic and sexual relationships  (and even my business, friendship and family relationships too).
