Transparency, vulnerability and Owning your Truth with Bizzie Gold
Today we want to talk about how discussing everything within a relationship can change lives. We’ve found that for ourselves — and in our relationship — it’s been one of the huge difference-makers between suffering and struggling, and finding new intimacy and healing. Not holding back and telling the full truth can seriously help to reach new levels of intimacy and to achieve full trust within your relationships.
Revealing your truth may hurt your S.O. at first, but like exposure therapy, not only will it hurt less after a while — but you’ll find that it doesn’t hurt at all, and will actually bring the two of you closer together. Sophie and I, through 10 years of doing this work, have grown so much closer together — and it’s all because of transparency.
Our guest today, Bizzie Gold, is transparent to no end. It was fascinating to hear her bare her truth on the podcast — she really gets to the heart of it. Rawness, vulnerability — it’s all here in today’s episode. Bizzie Gold’s business, Buti Yoga, has been running for just over five years, has 4,000 certified instructors, is being taught in 25 countries, and has the largest yoga teacher training program in the country. Join us today as she takes us through her journey of self-discovery, starting her own business — Buti Yoga — and how transparency has helped her live her best life.
