Shattering gender myths, rethinking infidelity and looking at what it takes to make empowering sexual choices are a few of the topics that Hugo Schwyzer tackles in this provocative and enlightening conversation about what it means to be human and sexual. His voice is bold, daring and acutely truthful in a space that most are afraid to tread. The light that he sheds on gender and sexuality has the power to alter how we imagine our relationships.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” –Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We believe we are making it better by shielding ourselves from our own pain. This is a fool’s errand, for the pain we refuse to feel and acknowledge doesn’t dissipate from our lacking attention, but rather collects in our heart center with a weightiness that we often cannot name or discern. So fearful are we, of the potential of a broken heart, that we inadvertently refuse to open our hearts at all.
