Our total interview length is 2 hours and 40 minutes, so he cut it in half… We ramble around between communication styles, authenticity, monkeys, reducing risks, breath play, Dr.Charlie Fererr’s Latina Kama Sutra, stories, speed negotiation, is your perfect partner across the table?, vulnerability, am I making enough of a difference?, being surrounded by glowing lights (and remembering you are one), profound moments, spiritual SM, working on evolution, being a pro presenter, standing up for deserving excellence, Del’s theory of F.E.E., event unique product offerings……

Lee Harrington Feb-March Newsletter (SJ, SF, DC, NYC, CT, AZ, STL)

Happy Valentines Day! (Though I like to show love and affection year round myself) It’s official- I’ve moved! I’m now based in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona… a sharp contrast to so many of my friends, family and loved ones who are burrowed up in the snow right now.

Lee Harrington Jan-Feb Newsletter (Boston, AZ, Bay Area, DC, NY, CT)

Happy Winter Greetings! This week finds me in beautiful Peaks Island, Maine, where I am holed up with two dear friends, their two sweet dogs and a cute but cranky cat working on upcoming projects.

PassionAndSoul Student Lounge Opens

http://fetlife.com/groups/1890 I’ve wanted a place for a while to discuss after the class ends the ins and outs of what touched us… to keep the conversation going. This is an opportunity to do just that! I love my Yahoo Group, but its not very well suited for following conversations in my opinion. Finally, a forum has been created for sexual explorers by sexual explorers- and I’ve decided to host my student lounge there. I’ve already started 2 threads- one for introducing ourselves, and one for Denver Bound where I just taught… but my hope is that you will say hi…
