Discovering deep intimacy: Touching truth at our core

#embodied podcast Aug 04, 2023

This podcast conversation was first published on January 28th, 2021.

I had the honor of sitting down with the inspiring Naomi Irons and the illuminating Deborah Gleason for a heart-opening conversation on a topic that is, paradoxically, both deeply universal and profoundly personal: intimacy. This wasn’t just about the intimacy we share with others, but the profound connection we cultivate within ourselves, the one that ultimately shapes and deepens every other relationship in our lives.

In our hour-and-a-half-long discussion, I found myself reflecting on a thought I've been cradling for a while now: that death is perhaps the ultimate moment of intimacy. It’s a point in our lives where the veil between the tangible and the ethereal becomes so thin that it almost disappears. It's when we truly come face-to-face with the very essence of our being.

Highlights from our podcast discussion include:

  • Connecting deeply with the Earth (Gaia) as a model of living and source of inspiration, instead of relying solely on human leaders or cultural norms.
  • Intimacy, as the ultimate expression of connecting deeply with oneself, others, and the world around, is discussed in relation to creating strong and deep relationships.
  • What it truly means to live authentically, diving deep into the emotional landscapes of our bodies, and living in the light that each of us was born to shine.

This episode was a soulful journey, and I am deeply grateful to both Naomi and Deborah for creating such a safe and loving space for us to delve into these reflections. It truly felt like a shared meditation on what it means to be alive, to feel, to connect, and to trust in the inherent intelligence of our life-force as it courses through us.

My hope for everyone who listens to this episode is to find a renewed sense of trust in yourself. Trust in the wisdom of your experiences, trust in the path you’re on, and trust in the love and intimacy that permeates every moment – even if sometimes it feels elusive.

I promise you, dear reader, this episode has the potential to be a transformative experience. Let it serve as a gentle reminder to deepen the trust you have in your own life-force. Embrace the profound, embrace the intimate, and let the currents of life move through you with grace and intelligence.

Sending you all love, light, and deep connection,

Anne Berube 💫
