Non- Violent Communication With Kelly Bryson

In this episode of Sex With Jaiya, I journey up to Santa Cruz to visit Marriage and Family Therapist, and author of Don't Be Nice, Be Real, Kelly Bryson.  Kelly is someone I admire and aspire to be more like as I move through the world.  I feel that his way of communication with compassion, empathy and excellent listening could be a lifesaver in many relationships.  If you aren't getting your needs met, if you feel like you are are often criticizing or being critisized, if you have stopped talking all together, then this is episode is a great one to help you begin to set a foundation upon which to heal and grow.  I see 2013 as an opportunity for us to be more authentic, honest and compassionate.  The tips and tools Kelly uses are a great starting place.  He even got me crying just by being a wonderful listening ear while we were role playing.  Watch and learn how you can better communicate with you lover thus deepening and healing your relationship!
