Once a month, Fern*, 32 and her fiance Connor*, 25, set aside some time to devote to their relationship. They'll dim the lights of their one bedroom flat, wrap up together in a soft blanket, light some candles, and turn off their phones. But this isn't prep for an extensive session of Netflix and chill—this is their special routine for a new type of couples therapy: tripping on magic mushrooms.
-
"[Connor and I] always set an intention, and our intention for the first trip was to 'trust' the medicine and what it can show you," she continues. "At first, I felt these warm flushes all around my body and became hyper-aware of the limbs and the hairs on my body, as well as the textures and ambience around me. This shared energy and connection created a bubble for us to see everything about each other and we just laughed and laughed like children."
-
"It felt like every sensation was something I was feeling for the first time as we ran our fingers over each other's bodies."
-
The couple found that during the trip they felt more connected and had an increased understanding of each other. "We were cuddling and it felt like we were melting into each other, it was like we could see each other's souls," says Fern. "You discover each other's troubles and fears, and don't judge them."
-
After their first trip, Fern and Connor decided to have magic mushroom sessions on a regular basis. "We don't talk for a few hours of the trip and focus on introspection, but afterwards we always have a long, elated but emotional conversation, sharing the journey we've just been on," says Fern. "We'll have this incredible deep chat that we didn't even know we wanted to have, then have the best sleep."
-
For Fern and Connor, mushrooms have become a monthly ritual they both feel is integral to the health of their relationship. "It's not that we wouldn't be as close as we are without doing them," said Fern, "it's just that it could have taken us years to get there. It really feels like you're getting 10 years of counselling in one night."

Having a rough day? 😒...Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That's called PURPOSE 😃...You're alive for a reason! 🙌🏽

Boundaries are rules or principles you set for yourself or others and they are so good for you. In the latest radio segment we discussed how boundaries can play into the holiday season. It’s very difficult to know your limits but communicating them is even harder. If you feel like you have to endure people or situations it’s probably a good indication to evaluate if a boundary has been crossed.

Meanwhile, Mathilda outlines how defensive she feels when Maxwell cuts her off, as Maxwell swallows an intense urge to do so at three different junctures. Mathilda catches his gesture and something lifts. The sparrow’s aria replenishes the lacuna, sparking an evocation like giant pandas frolicking on a river bed. “After all this time you still scratch my back with a hacksaw,” she says with a genuineness that touches me. He pauses within the melody, and then, with a voice rising straight out of the dust bowl, “Do you remember when each kiss embodied performance art? You gave me access to charms I knew not.
I close my eyes, deeply moved. Over and over the simplest moments are most powerful. How wonderful when melody establishes a groove that reveals a shared liturgy. The stagnant stream proliferates into numerous tiny rivulets, drenching the earth in liquid erotica. “How about my legs on your shoulders in the pirate’s cove off of Tuscany,” I hear Mathilda say, as I open my eyes and behold her bosom twittering with delight. #literaryfiction

Do you know about the five love languages?
.
These languages are how we feel most loved. We usually have one or two that really speak to us:
.
Acts of service
Touch
Words of affirmation
Quality time
Gifts
.
The important takeaway here is that in order for the people in your life to feel loved by you, and deeply connected with you, you have to speak THEIR love language not your own.
.
We often love people in the way WE like to be loved, rather than the way THEY most feel loved. It means, like most things in life, connecting deeply with friends and family takes effort, consideration, being thoughtful.
.
Do you know your peoples' languages? Are you being deliberate in how you connect with and show love to them?
