Is it possible to fall in love with your partner over and over again? Can you hope to hold onto passionate sex as you grow older together?
This week Andrew is joined by Dr Cheryl Fraser, an author, Buddhist teacher, psychologist and sex therapist. They explore the nature and longevity of passion, including:
⭐️Libido and why it can wane over time
⭐️How mindfulness works in the bedroom
⭐️The “passion triangle” - intimacy, thrill, sensuality.
Dr Cheryl has helped thousands of couples jump-start their love life and create passion that lasts a lifetime. She lives in Vancouver, where she has a thriving private practice in sex and couples therapy. She is regularly featured in Mindful and Best Health magazines. Dr Cheryl was also a Fulbright scholar, and has studied meditation and Buddhism for twenty-five years, in both the Tibetan and Theravaden traditions.
