  1. i took notes so much from this inteview.
    great great job!
    the questions were on point.
    Esther is brilliant.

  2. Taoism has taught me that Yin(feminine) energy is actually superior to Yang(masculine) energy, although it appears opposite on the surface. It is the subtle feminine energy which properly motivates the masculine, and then the two energies do their cosmic dance. I believe that the modern feminist movement is responsible for much of the gender relational difficulties which have afflicted western culture, and I think Esther Perel represents a pendulum swing in the right direction – where people will again learn the cosmic dance of Yin/Yang energies and relationships will heal and thrive. I feel the feminist movement is pushing women to be male and that really throws everything out of balance.

  3. Is it unfair to say that the host, being Lesbian, may have less interest in the psychological journey of having conversations with men? Not an attack, just a question…

  4. Loved Kara's respectful disagreement! I absolutely love Esther Perel, and count myself among the many who no longer have a sort of throne for anyone. I appreciated the balance that happened in that moment! The respect between both women that was expressed in the awkward moment is something I found encouraging. That said, I too am completely done with any word or action that lends itself to the LGBTQA community feeling the need to apologize. Thank you to all involved in making this dialogue possible!
