The dynamic in a relationship shifts continually. I’m currently experiencing resistance and frustration in my romantic partnership. The lockdown has landed many couples in an otherwise healthy relationship in a deeper place of energetic ballet.

Saturday night is quiz night. Since lockdown began a group of friends in the UK have organised a bi-weekly Zoom quiz. It’s a chance to connect in these strange physically distanced times. For me here in India it’s a fantastic way to keep in touch and to hear about how the guys are doing, what’s […]
