This week Jessie sits down with Amy Chan, the founder of Renew Breakup Bootcamp.
Wait, there’s a break-up boot camp?
Genius, we know.
Amy is the breakup shaman we’ve been waiting for since JTT trampled on our middle school hearts and we haven’t been quite the same since. Amy is here to reframe breakups into opportunities of growth, power, and the potential of deeper self-love.
But don’t be fooled, this is no flower-crown kumbaya women’s circle, nor is it an excuse to have a giant collective hate fest on our exes. Instead, Amy walks us through the stages of breakups from a neurological perspective, highlighting the way falling in love creates dopamine, and why ending a relationship has literal withdrawal symptoms. (She also explains why she uses a dominatrix on her retreats to help women step into their power and gives us a few kinky ways to up our pleasure factor.)
In our opinion, breakups have never felt so good or looked so sexy. Ready to say goodbye to your case of the ex and hit play on this heart-healing episode? Us too.
