Darling, So, the Saturday before last I had the most incredible, beautiful, amazing Intro event of my life. Over 300 women showed up at our new Mastery venue, the French Institute, and cut loose. New York City is still vibrating. But that is not the half of it. The half of it was the men!...

Darling, You did it. You got the job you deserved. You slogged through and got the divorce you needed. The kids are handled and thriving. You make friends every time you turn around. But why oh why does love—real true love, with an amazing partner—remain just out of reach? What have we women lost, in...

Darling, It was just another cold December morning.  I woke up, got the kid on the bus, went to spin class, showered, dressed. I settled in with a gigantic cup of English breakfast tea, in my God Save the Queen mug, to catch up with my emails before the office opened.  In my inbox, I...

Darling, Do the words “I know you want me” fall flat on your ears? Like a thud. Clunk. Or even a halting screech? If so, you’re not alone: Dear Mama, What were you thinking?! I absolutely love you and the work that you do, but why would ever title your event something as trivial as...

Darling, The world of relationships is never easy to navigate. Every time a woman puts on her lip gloss and heels and hits a bar, a club, a restaurant, a library, an online dating site—with the hope of having a fun encounter with a new guy—she is taking a huge crazy risk with her sense...

Darling, You will love this fantastic question! I have the most amazing husband in the world. I have 2 beautiful kids and I can’t seem to ignite my sex drive or get out of my grumpy funk. Any suggestions on how to find my sass, my swagger, and my desire again? Emily Dear Emily, Oh,...

Darling, Welcome to the inaugural Ask Mama post! There have been so many requests for a Q&A forum that I have decided to listen and give it up to you and your incredible, powerful questions. I will still hold forth and blog about issues that tug at my soul now and then, but I wanted to...

Are you looking forward to your 60’s? 70’s? 80’s? 90’s? Or does the thought of aging scare you? Why? Are you afraid of losing your beauty? Your sexuality? Your risk taking? Doing work you love? Being loved? Can you guarantee that your life will continue to get better and better and better over time? Or...

Darling, Okay, so here you are, in bed with your new guy for the first time. He starts to kiss you in a way that makes you feel like he is a bull and you are a salt lick. But. You really like him. So, you say nothing, you just kind of try to hope...
