It’s a tough time to be in love, right? We have an unprecedented wealth of opportunity to express the full range of our human capacities in the world. But coming home after all that and kicking off our loafers or stilettos or Danskos or Keens (you catch my drift), the cozy slippers of domestic bliss don’t fit quite the same as they might’ve for our grandparents.
Negotiating workable energetic (if not gender) roles, finding the kind of polarity that makes for sexual delight, and being a soft landing place for one another aren’t as easy as my fantasies would suggest. How ’bout yours? Over the next 8 weeks, I’ll be writing over at elephant journal about the 12 Elements of Power, a model I’ve pioneered over the past seven years to help explain, diagnose, and address the challenges and opportunities of fully expressing our power. In particular, this series jams on how the 12 Elements play out in relationships. Here’s the introduction: The 12 Elements of Masculine and Feminine Power in Relationships at elephant journal.
