My radio guest, Dr. Saida Désilets is a woman who personifies what it is to move from victim to thriving in life and love. You must check out this powerful episode!

I had an inspiring and delicious conversation with my radio guest, Dr. Saida Désilets. She is a woman who personifies what it is to move from victim to thriving in life and love. She shared her powerful story of transformation after a near death experience at age 20. Dr.Désilets wants to live in a world filled with audacious, sexually sovereign women, living life on their own terms. I couldn’t agree more!

As a thought-leader and body-philosopher, she has published several books: The Emergence of the Sensual Woman, and The Illustrious Jade Egg and had her innovative method featured in Dr. Christiane Northrup’s bestselling books: Women’s Wisdom, Women’s Bodies & The Secret Pleasures of Menopause, as well as in Dr. Rachel Abrams books: Multi-Orgasmic Woman & BodyWise.

After two decades of dedicated, embodied professional practice, Saida is a visionary spokesperson for sexual sovereignty.

In this video, I speak about the importance of having your voice heard. And I share a vulnerable story about how I finally learned to SPEAK UP to someone from my past and get the closure I needed.

As a love coach for women over 40, it’s my mission to help women value themselves first. I believe that a woman of value attracts her best partner and lives her best life.

How to Move Towards Supreme Love

My radio guest, Dr. Jeanine Staples, shares how you can leave unhealthy relationship patterns behind, and move towards supreme love.

In my radio guest, Jeanine Staples’ debut book, The Revelations of Asher: Toward Supreme Love in Self, she reveals women’s fragmented selves and the five ways women live as lovers: Main Chick, Side Chick, Bonnie, Bitch, and Victim. Her two-part, online quiz can easily help women uncover which lover identity they take on in relationships. Her subsequent work shows women a more conscious way of loving and living in the world.

This isn’t a lovey-dovey take on relationships or “self-help”. It is a raw look at how women heal from deep traumas using the tools of emotional literacy and emotional justice. Jeanine is on a mission to teach women how to turn toward supreme love in self, a concept that goes beyond the limits of self-love.

As an alternative-response to the five toxic lover identities, Jeanine presents a new way of loving and living. She introduces the Supreme Lover Identity and illuminates its integral connection to social and emotional justice for and through Black women’s wisdom.

Highlights below for a fascinating interview on Last First Date Radio, episode #287: Moving Toward Supreme Love with Jeanine Staples.
