‘Like all good sex, conscious intimacy starts with a LOT of foreplay’

Clinical Psychologist and critically acclaimed author Dr. Shefali believes that introducing intimacy in a marriage or even in the most casual relationship comes at a price. It requires a lot more introspection than you could ever have imagined. You can’t find it hidden in a Kamasutra book. Get prepared for a stark, spiritual awakening in love, relationships, marriage and parenting.

About Shefali Tsabary

Endorsed by Oprah as “revolutionary” and “life-changing”, New York Times bestselling author and Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Shefali is the foremost expert in the field of conscious parenting.

Dr. Shefali’s journey into this radically new parenting paradigm arose from her own experience as a parent herself. Reacting irrationally to one of her then 3-year-old daughter’s tantrums, Dr. Shefali became deeply self-aware that her parenting frustrations were never about her child. Rather, it was about her own unmet childhood needs that she was unconsciously projecting on her own daughter.

Merging western psychology and eastern philosophy, Dr. Shefali espouses a more conscious approach to parenting that centers around honoring our children as sovereign beings, creating real connections with them, and most importantly, raising our own consciousness as parents.
