About Shaun Galanos
I'm glad you stopped by to read this page.
Many people ask me how I came to do what I do. They want to know, "Why love and why you?"
Here's the short answer:
For as long as I can remember, I've been passionate about love, and the sex that comes with it. I'm insanely curious about people, their journey towards love, and what it takes for us to love more fully and openly.
You can say I have a bottomless well of energy when it comes to exploring matters of the heart.
And, I've been through the wringer.
Friends... family... the people closest to me have always described me as "too sensitive" my whole life. Probably because I never knew what to do with all my emotions.
Feeling too much and not knowing how to make sense of it all made me clumsy in love; and it seemed that I always say the wrong things. And then I decided to change that.
Here's the first lesson: people don't change, until they're ready to.
At some point, I learned that having lots of emotions (and making sense of them) isn't a weakness; it's a strength.
I harnessed that strength and told all those people who thought I was "too much" to stuff it.
Then, I did the work.
I hired a therapist and started learning everything I could about what it means to have a healthy relationship with myself so that I could have them with others.
Everything didn't magically get better. I fucked up countless times along the way (some say I'm still fucking up today!). Slowly, over time, my relationships got better and healthier.
I went deep into what it means to be emotionally available, why emotional intimacy is essential to fulfilling relationships, and how I could share this message with others.
Here's my mission:
To help people develop the emotional intimacy required to have loving and connected relationships with themselves and others.
How do I plan on doing that?
By helping people increase their relational skills, deepen their communication practices, and build their emotional intelligence to cultivate more intimacy with themselves and those around them.
Simple, but not easy.
