In this fascinating 8-minute video, Deepak Chopra talks about the different stages of relationships, before the late Dr. David Simon explains how to accept our dark side, namely our shadow.

Watch the video to learn about the essence of love and attraction – ranging from the initial physical stage, to experiencing  total ecstasy at a much deeper physical, mythical and sacred level – and to also hear how we can accept and respond to the positive and negative values we were born to co-exist with.

We loved the video’s exploration of the human psyche, and how it affects our relationships, what are your thoughts?
