Welcome to Transformation Talk. Every Thursday for a year, starting in September 2012, I’ll post an interview with someone who is a force for good in the world. These men and women have either deepened their passion or found their calling after experiencing a loss, trauma or diagnosis.
I want to broaden the conversation around grief and its transformative power. My hope is that in their words you’ll find echoes of your story. In their inspired actions, you’ll see yourself and your immense possibility.

Today’s interview is with intimacy coach and founder of the Hot Love Revolution, Michele Lisenbury Christensen. After becoming a mother, she realized she couldn’t stay in her marriage if the level of physical intimacy remained the same, but she also didn’t want to leave her husband and the father of her child. So she set out on a quest to make “monogamy the hottest place on earth”.
This is from her website and I think it explains the revolution beautifully:
“Your body, your mind, and your spirit all suffer when you settle for lukewarm love. And what an insult to the amazing person you married, to have a less-than-amazing connection between you?! When the two of you tap Hot Love, it’s like a (safe!) nuclear reactor: you light up not only your bodies and hearts, but your careers, your parenting, your creativity, and your social activism. Intimacy is the most potent source of human power there is. You can harness it to create anything.”
