With Sonya and Danni, the other two (fabulous) women guests who married themselves, on the Dr. Phil show. Thanks to assistant producer Kalley for the photo. I helped Kalley and her sister Camryn get engaged to themselves after the show!

Being on the Dr. Phil show on self-marriage was a wild ride, to say the least.

Before you dive in to watch the full episode, you can watch this 30-second clip where I retort to the Trump advisor they brought on the show to be the conservative foil.

I said, “When I listen to you, I feel tense in my body.” I fell back on all my somatic coaching training because I was truly at a loss for what to say with all the nonsense coming out of his mouth about people marrying animals!

In the end, I inadvertently brought the messages of embodiment into the conversation. When we connect with what we feel in our bodies, we are speaking an inarguable truth without resorting to contempt or defensiveness. I am happy to have brought that message into the world–it’s key to my work as a life coach, as a writer, and my life!

Sonya and Danni, the two other women who appeared on the show to share their stories are truly spectacular. Together we helped to show that what at first seems like a weird idea really is not. If you are looking to be inspired, I recommend you watch the whole thing.

Here is the full Dr. Phil episode on self-marriage! Enjoy. 

Here, I have only scratched the surface of what I want to tell you about this experience so far. When I have a chance to catch my breath, I will write up a full behind-the-scenes blog post on how this all happened. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter for the juicy stories that are yet to come about how this came to be, including backstage photos with the folks in hair, makeup, and wardrobe. Those people were truly lovely. I never got such a Hollywood makeover in my life.

If you are interested in marrying yourself with guidance and support, you can work with me one-on-one or join the next cohort of my group coaching program Turned-On Living, where you get to enter into the process with the support of other women on the self-love journey.

And… let me know what you thought about the show!

Would love to hear any and all reactions! With a caveat: no hate tolerated. Any nasty comments on this blog post will be deleted.
