Psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher Nancy Colier talks about mindful relationships. You might think that being mindful in a relationship is just about paying attention to your mate…and it is…but it’s also about paying attention to yourself and the thoughts and emotions you bring to the partnership. Nancy talks about how to show up and how to deal with a really bad day — and how to leave yourself open for the butterflies of love.
