In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, invites Bob Gardner to share his innovative and intriguing perspective on cultivating passion and aliveness in relationships. Bob shares his transformational journey from enduring years of shame and personal distress to removing the inner shackles and attaining the zenith of inner freedom. His teachings, influenced by the resilient ethos of Russian Cossacks, revolve around alchemizing one’s bodily and emotional responses to stress. Bob emphasizes the power of direct experience and the liberation from internal constraints, affirming that freedom is indeed a learnable skill, one that stokes passion for life and relationships.
Also in this episode:
- Understanding the separation between one’s thoughts and reality is key to experiencing life beyond self-imposed limitations.
- Freedom from internal tensions can be learned and embodied, rather than just tolerated or willed through.
- Bob Gardner explains the significance of training the body and mind to respond calmly to stressful stimuli through rigorous practices.
