It is great to have Ross and Jeanne, a married couple, back with us on Healing Your Life!
Although their desire for healing stems from the aftermath of pornography addiction, I believe their challenges are applicable to many couples. We all have room to improve our intimacy, trust, and boundaries in relationships.
Ross feels threatened and defensive when Jeanne comes to him for emotional support. Although he understands it is his place to support her, he can’t help feeling cornered and controlled. He could trace these emotions to his past repeatedly, but he is not interested in sourcing them, just eliminating them. It is uncomfortable to feel these emotions, but as Dr. Chris points out, feeling the emotion and not running from it is a key to his future success.
Since our last show with Jeanne, she has been on the path of radical forgiveness. She shares the belief that what happens to you, happens for you. That is a very personal and enlightened path to choose. It is obvious that her dedication to daily spiritual practice has paid off. She and Ross have chosen to ground themselves in Spirit and focus on their belief that all can be forgiven and healed.
Join us on Healing Your Life for week two with Ross, Jeanne, and Dr. Chris!

Steve Bhaerman is an internationally known author, humorist, and workshop leader. For the past 23 years, he has written and performed as Swami Beyondananda, the "Cosmic Comic." Swami's comedy has been called "irreverently uplifting" and has been described both as "comedy disguised as wisdom" and "wisdom disguised as comedy." Swami's latest venture is to combine his nonreligion of FUNdamentalism with the nonpolitics of the newly formed Right to Laugh Party ("one big party ... everyone is invited"), to create one big evolutionary up-wising to overgrow the current dysfunctional system. He will also be launching his radio feature, Karma Talk this year, to give folks from all over the world the chance to ask the Swami answerable questions and receive his questionable answers.
