Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

Waylon w/Ruth Leah Schwartz on Conscious Relationships. {Part 1}

Let’s talk about (lesbian and other) relationships, communication, U-hauls and island living with Waylon Lewis and Ruth Leah Schwartz.

She’ll be back soon for part two and we’ll talk sex, and…can we actually grow up and change or are our brains stuck, solid?

“I’m biased, but I believe lesbians can have the best relationships on the planet because we can go so deep. We can bond so deeply, have so much emotional intimacy. And I think lesbian relationships require more skill for those exact reasons.” ~ Ruth Leah Schwartz

A clip of our conversation: 

“To be empowered in relationships, it helps so much to be able to make it not personal.” ~ Ruth Leah Schwartz

“For any of us, there comes a point where people start in arguing, saying things like, you know, you never blah, blah, blah, or you always blah, blah, blah. When we say things like that, or even when we think or feel things like that, it’s a sign that we are not in the prefrontal cortex. We literally lose access to that part of our brain because of this thing called the amygdala hijack.” ~ Ruth Leah Schwartz


Or, listen to the podcast:

“A lot of what I teach is also how to down regulate our nervous systems and how to make conscious choices about what we communicate.” ~ Ruth Leah Schwartz
