Check out Ethan’s new lecture on the Shambhala Podcast, No Such Thing As A Relationship Expert” Here's A Quote from Ethan's new book, which you can pre-order now: That’s right, nobody is a relationship expert. Let me be clear: Of course, certain professionals have extensive psy- chological training to help others with their relationships. I am not claiming that this training is in any way invalid. Seeking relationship guidance from a third party with the skills to help can be one of the smartest and most humbling things we ever do. But the only way to progress with relationships is to connect with our longing to know ourselves more deeply, and to extend that longing to know- ing others as well. By de nition, no single person can be an expert at relationships. Every relationship is a collabora- tion between (at least) two people, and an expert is one lone person.
