In this episode of Art of Authenticity, we had an inspirational conversation with, Bryan Reeves, relationship coach, blogger, and author.

Today we welcome repeat guest, Bryan Reeves. Bryan is a relationship ninja, coach, blogger and author and you can learn more about him and his personal journey in an earlier episode he did with us. But for today, we spend most of the time diving into what he calls the “Death Gap.” Some people are more inclined toward logic (masculine) and others more toward intuition (feminine) and Bryan describes the Death Gap as that space in a relationship where one person comes from a more logical place and the other person comes from a more intuitive place. The feelings versus the analysis that lets two people fall into a gap of disconnection in their relationship. We’ve all been there, right? I know I have. In this episode, Bryan walks us through how to avoid this disconnection and how to make the changes in the relationship that you want. This is a really insightful information that will help you in a relationship, or if you’re single, it will surely help you going into a relationship. Bryan gives us the specific tools and ideas to help us make those changes and become better communicators with our partners and even our family members, friends and colleagues.
