True love starts with true choice.
True choice starts with true honesty.
I’ll start with the light stuff… My name is Imani, and I’m a relationship and dating coach from the States.
I live a relatively unconventional life — currently in beautiful Bali, Indonesia.
I love exploring new places, dancing to a variety of music, scuba diving, watching Netflix (mostly the trailers, let’s be honest), and eating way too much food.
But enough small talk, let’s get to the heart of why we’re here…
My husband John and I have been together for over 9 years. Having dealt with youthful ignorance, college debauchery, moving multiple times (including across the world), and the multi-dimensional impact of trauma, we SURELY haven’t always gotten this relationship thing right.
And love is such a vast phenomenon that if anyone says they fully understand it, they’d be lying to you.
But by combining pivotal personal lessons with key principles from my educational background (policy, philosophy, ethics), I’ve come to understand much more about love – or, at least, how to practice love in the most fruitful way.
And I’m fascinated by how the concepts of radical honesty, realignment, self-trust, self-advocacy, and conscious choice play such significant roles.
By understanding how to be honest with ourselves first and confidently express our needs, among other vital skills, my husband and I have continuously sparked more meaningful conversations, reset our boundaries, reshaped incongruent habits, revealed our deepest desires, rethought outdated beliefs about love, and recreated our ideal love life: our “Same New Love.”
And I’m so grateful for the love we share.
But I’ve also recognized more and more that not every woman experiences this kind of love, and many women have given up on it entirely.
And I get it….
Learning the art and practice of true honesty – along with other supporting skills – will ensure a love life that’s truly your own: free from constructs, fear, and constant disappointment.
Strip away false stories and assumptions, limiting beliefs, & societal constructs to get a true sense of your authentic desires, needs, standards, boundaries, red flags, dealbreakers, and overall values.
Uncover the blind spots of your current relationship & dating patterns, then shift unhelpful habits with new, bold action steps.
Sprinkle logic in with love to make empowered, conscious choices that'll leave you feeling good about yourself - regardless of the outcome.
