The Love Fix

Dec 3, 2021

This week, Sherry and Carla welcome Aleah Ava, Co-Founder of The Royal Path and host of the Addicted to Love Podcast. Through using many tools including trauma-informed emotional healing and her unique method called “emotional recycling”, Aleah supports couples and individuals who face love, sex, and relationship challenges.

  • What are three ways we can get into our body and feel more grounded in and out of the bedroom? 



  • “Be present. Attune to the moment.” - Sherry
  • “Sex can be either really, really traumatizing and just reinforce that wound of rejection or not feeling loved. Or, sex can be really nourishing.” - Aleah
  • “As a woman, I really have to learn to listen to the tempo of my body.” - Aleah
  • “Woman and pleasure is very different than men and pleasure.” - Aleah 
  • “Tantra in itself is a way of living. It’s really about surrending yourself to what is, saying yes to the moment, and accepting it.” - Aleah 
  • “It (tantra) is about giving up the idea of a goal, and having an understanding of where you want to go in sex together.” - Aleah 
  • “It’s about union. The feminine and the masculinine together in the bedroom and forgetting that idea of separation.” - Aleah 
  • “I always come back to the heart space. So if I can go in and really listen to it and understand that my body is my compass, it guides me.” - Aleah 
  • “It’s all about loving yourself whether you’re in a relationship, single, or going through a breakup. That is where the happiness comes from.” - Carla 
  • “Sex addiction or love addiction, it’s really an inability to truly connect.” - Sherry
