Principles of Intimacy and Passion

I did this lecture in the spring of 2011.  The first half is Dr. Hawley speaking about the pitfalls of facebook/texting while young and in relationships.  In the second half, for the first part I talk about intimacy and good communication skills, (not necessarily anything new for most people, but I could be wrong!)  THEN in the last part (which is the last 15 minutes) I discuss passion vs. intimacy and how cultivating intimacy doesn’t always equal passion.  I use a lot of principles discussed by Esther Perel in her book, “Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic.”  Enjoy!

Note: Sometimes it takes a minute for the video to upload and start running.
