Some of My Most Popular Topics

The Paradox of Security and Adventure

We all straddle two sets of opposing human needs: the need for stability and predictability, and the desire for what is exciting, new, and mysterious. From the bedroom to the boardroom, couples and family therapist Esther Perel tackles the big questions about our pursuit of passion and will arm you with actionable tools to cultivate erotic intelligence. 

The Future of Sex, Love and Commitment 

The quality of our lives depends on the quality of our relationships. Yet the expectations and social norms of these relationships are quickly shifting beneath our feet. A penetrating observer of cultural patterns, Esther explores the complicated and contradictory needs that are shaping relationships today. In this talk, she paves a path forward for thriving connections.

Trust: The pivotal element of your company’s success

Our lives are fueled by trust: in our loved ones, our colleagues, and our leaders. But how do we cultivate it, and restore if it's lost? Esther lays out the foundational elements of a crucial relational element that can be the determining factor between success and collapse.  

Parenting Unfiltered

Never before has the survival of the family so depended on the happiness of the couple. Yet, all too many partners live in a state of emotional deprivation and chronic time crunch. While the kids get ample playdates and extracurricular activities, the couple slogs it out with the same-old, same-old. The children get the latest in fashion, but the adults walk around in sweat pants that have lost their original color. The kids get languorous hugs while the couple subsists on a diet of quick pecks. In this talk, Esther Perel shares the science behind thriving relationships and the art of nourishing the soul. Audiences will come away with fresh insight on how to reconcile our need for safety and security with our quest for novelty and adventure. They will also gain actionable tools to cultivate erotic intelligence —an intelligence that embraces aliveness, vibrancy and vitality.
