"Why Mars and Venus Collide" with John Gray (excerpt)
Visionary: John Gray, PhD
Author of Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, John Gray takes listeners on a powerful two-hour ride through a revolution in relationship. He shows how hormonal and brain differences can create patterns that kill romance, break down communication, and result in deep dissatisfaction. As we move beyond classic gender roles into a new era, we need a new roadmap for how women and men can authentically honor their feminine and masculine essences, respectively, and integrate their polarity within themselves. He discusses the nature of challenge, sacrifice, and leadership in boosting testosterone for men, and the role of nurturing activities in producing the oxytocin that is foundational for happiness in women. Behaviors we have often pathologized turn out to be natural strategies for men and women to deal with their differing biochemistries. John also offers a wide range of practical advice that builds upon current science to forge a new path forward for men and women.
