How to make a relationship last with Rachel Rickards

New Paradigm Intimacy

In this episode, Victoria interviews Rachel Rickards.  They talk about: - how to make a relationship last when it feels like it's falling apart - open relating and relating openly - inviting community in to hold you through relationship struggles - communicating beyond words - embodied intimacy and much more... Rachel is a powerhouse creator. She loves facilitating groups with an intentional focus on growth and intimacy. After earning a degree in Event Production 15 years ago, she got her feet wet with the Golden Globes Awards. But her passion soon led her to producing festivals around the world working with notable organizations like SoulPlay, School of Tribal Tantra, IntimacyFest and Polypalooza. Her stellar organizational skills have birthed countless workshops, retreats, trainings and conferences for grateful teachers and participants. In 2014 she co-founded Embodied Intimacy, a thriving community dedicated to hands-on relating, honest emotion, and always coming back to love. She brought David Cates and Belly2Belly to Europe, along with upgraded practices for regulating our nervous systems and creating safe space in groups. With partner Buster Radvik, she’s championed much-needed awareness about the influence of trauma in sex and relationships. An outspoken advocate for open relating, Rachel is insistent that we all care for each other, hold ourselves accountable, speak our truth, and develop the relational skills to keep on our evolutionary edge together. Her fans and followers love that she lives what she preaches, sharing by video and in person the intimate real-time details of how she leans into her edges, sometimes falls, and always keeps on loving.

015: Love, freedom and open relating with Rachel Rickards

Relationship-smart women

Imagine giving your partner total freedom - to the point that you can be in the same room with them while they are connecting intimately with another. How would you respond? Instead of going into a jealous rage, like most of us, my guest this week Rachel Rickards, channels that energy of jealousy into her own expansion. Rachel and her partner are polyamorous, meaning they have an open relationship. As a monogamous woman, speaking with Rachel really blew my mind. I really feel that there is a lot here for us more conventional relators to be inspired by. Rachel also shared: + What she does to move through the energy of jealousy + The sticky belief of "I do not belong" and how she found her place in the world + The dance between freedom and control - she swears she is actually a control freak! + The connecting practice of belly to belly and how it works to calm her nervous system + The difficult challenges of polyamory and why she still chooses it + We talk about intimacy and what it truly means to be intimate with another + And finally I ask Rachel her advice for us monogamous folk on how to keep our relationships alive For more info head to www.nicolemathieson.com/podcast15
