Dr. Hendrix has appeared on many national television shows including 18 guest appearances on Oprah, one of which won her an Emmy award for the “most socially redemptive” daytime talk show and was included by Oprah in her top twenty shows.
In this, one of our favorite conversations, Dr. Margaret Paul asserts that the essence of relationship conflict is a byproduct of self-abandonment.

She has appeared on many radio and TV shows, including Oprah. She has successfully worked with thousands of individuals, couples and business relationships and continues to work with individuals and couples — mostly via phone.
Her passion is helping people heal the root cause of their pain and learn the path to joy and loving relationships.
This is my favorite song and video from last year. Beyond the stunning production and incredible performances, what I love most about it is the message. “Would you let me see beneath your beautiful.”
In Pathwork, we talk a lot about the defenses we put up that keep us from our people, and, more importantly, ourselves. To the extent we can embrace our “creatureliness,” our human imperfection, we can allow that which is divine in us to presence itself.
This song says it as beautifully as one could hope for.
After I stopped laughing, not only because this is so clever, but from recognition, I started to think about this. What we settle for in communication, both at work and at home… we could do better. And to such a large extent it’s the quality of communication that determines our mood, outlook, even sense of self. We can do better.
Thanks for Pittsburgh therapist, David Prybock for suggesting this.

There are few clean comedians who can make you laugh as hard as Jeff Allen can, fewer still who can inspire you to tears, and no one who combines these to a more powerful effect.
He’s appeared on Comedy Central, VH-1, Showtime, and other networks, he’s the author of the book, My Life As A Bystander, and a number of wonderful comedy videos including Happy Life, Happy Wife Revisited and My Heart, My Comedy. His comedy is largely based on his family, and his testimony comes from his recovery from drugs and alcohol. In today’s conversation, Jeff shares deeply from his life, with messages to inspire all of us committed to great relationships. We close with a couple of my favorite clips from Happy Wife, Happy Life, Revisited. You can find more at www.jeffallencomedy.com.
