Thank you for these gifts!

Amazing-- thank you to all of the couples and to Ms. Perel for sharing these powerful experiences. Ms. Perel is such a gifted therapist and I am so impressed with her ability to get to the core issues in a nonjudgmental compassionate method. These sessions are gifts to couples and therapists!

Introvert's sin

There's a lot of substance in this episode. My big take away though is what I'll call ''the introvert's sin.'' there are a lot of times when introverts can be frustratingly quiet, but they boil down to: we're quiet because we have nothing to say or we're quiet because we have something important to say but won't. That 2nd one is the toxic problem here.

Brilliantly done! Inspiring

Wow! This series is very interesting. Season 2 is just as good as season 1.

Esther Perel’s sessions are all interesting, she creates intimacy with the couples she treats, AND with the listener, and she inspires hope.

This episod is so honest, and it sheds a light on what couples can face when struck by adversity, especially illness. But it is amazing how a session that could be sad, is full of hope, humor, and good will. My heart goes out to this young couple, and they are in my prayers.

The production/editing quality is excellent!

Highly recommended, definitely worth your time, you’ll be surprised how thought provoking or relevant it can be.

Great season 2

Such heartfelt and teaching conversations. Also really appreciated Esther's commentaries about her own shortcomings in the sessions. Thanks for all the honesty and vulnerability of everyone involved.
Hope another season is coming!

I related to this one so much.

All of these are amazing but this one really hit home for me and I think the 'porn' issue is one many couples can relate to more and more.
