Why are core values important? Core values form the foundation on which you live and conduct yourself. When you’re in alignment with your core values, you know the direction your life is heading and what’s important to you. You experience more peace, self confidence and well-being.
There’s nothing more attractive to what you desire, especially in realms of romance and love, than confidence.

Singles Find Love Through Tantric Practices What is Tantra anyway?

They show up in unhealthy relationship patterns and result in unfulfilling relationships. At first glance, we think it's our partner who puts up these barriers because of the way they respond or don't respond, or because of what they do or don't do.
