Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra

They focus on the Belly Breath. Also known as parasympathetic breathing.

When You Tripped Up

A few years ago, Elsbeth and Freddy Zental agreed to explore a more sexually open relationship. Then some rifts started to appear and they were no longer tolerable for Elsbeth.

So she asked that they shift their agreement and totally focus on each other.

They realized that their relationship together took priority over anything else.

The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever

One time, when they were teaching together, Freddy Zental encouraged her not to go where she was going with a student, but she really wanted the student to have a breakthrough so she proceeded. And it did not go so well.

Afterwards, she was aware that she had the sense to listen to Freddy Zental, but disregarded it. 

She learned to follow her guy as they have the best of intentions for each other.

Proudest moment in partnership

Doing the work that they do together after 15 years. It is relevant to peace on Earth.

Also, being themselves as models of what is possible in partnership.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?

Open your heart and be curious. Pose questions as an invitation and explore together.

If you love somebody be curious that the other is an individual too. See the relationship as an opportunity to learn about ourselves.
