How skillfully are you navigating communication within your relationships? Today I filmed a short video that unpacks a simple format that you can use to gain clarity before a new connection. It’s called The “Safer Sex Conversation” and it’s something that I learnt about in an ISTA training that I attended.
Despite its name, it doesn’t only have to be used for intimate connections, some parts can be used when you meet any new person. This format also has a few important elements that would serve even in long-standing relationships. I believe that there are many long term connections that haven’t taken the time to unpack some of these important dynamics.

A documentary recommendation:
Free Solo tells the story of one of the most incredible athletic feats in the last decade. Alex Honnald is the first person to free climb (without ropes) El Capitan in the Yosemite National Park. It’s an epic watch, especially if you’ve ever been on even a tiny climbing wall with ropes a harness and a helmet.
Another relationship video:
A video that I made a while back where I share my understanding of how often we value the relationship that we have with others and sometimes neglect the relationship that we have with ourselves. “What we can learn from our most important relationships”
See you next week.
