Confident Detachment & Radical Honesty in Relationships with Dr. Jade Teta

He’s back! Dr. Jade Teta is a close friend and a listener favourite on the podcast, and we’re diving into a series around romantic relationships.

Today’s topic is confident detachment, which is the concept of showing up exactly as you are in relationships and letting the chips fall without trying to control the situation. It can feel incredibly vulnerable, but allows you to relax into being yourself, and is the ideal vetting system for which relationships will be the best fit in your life, and which may not.

We’re also talking about:

  • Why confident detachment (or being “confidently relaxed”) is one of the the most powerful & empowering tools you can have in your relational toolbox
  • What it is and how to implement it with real life examples
  • Exploring a little bit how attachment theory impacts relationships 

Dr. Jade is an integrative physician, author and sought after expert in the realm of metabolism and self-development. He spent the last 25 years immersed in the study of strength and conditioning, hormonal metabolism and the psychology of change and success. He is the founder and creator of the international health and fitness company, Metabolic Effect, and the author of several books including the best sellers, Metabolic Effect Diet and Metabolic Aftershock.  He has also contributed both, the exercise and sports nutrition chapters, to The Textbook Of Natural Medicine

His newest company, Next Level Human, combines his medical and fitness knowledge with his expertise in self-development and mindset change.
