Love and the Modern Family

This intimate episode of The Tony Robbins Podcast was recorded at home in February of 2023 with Tony Robbins, his wife, Sage Robbins, and Mary B., friend and surrogate of their child. Listen as they discuss unconditional love and the modern family.

Tony begins with an introduction on our evolutionary advantage and the most powerful force on earth: LOVE. He riffs on why people become jaded and pessimistic after the loss of love, pain, past references, and cultural conditioning and implores the audience to keep their hearts open to the depths of the human heart we all crave.

Tony and Sage share “the explosion of love” that has come through their 23 years of marriage and starting a family together.

This extended conversation covers topics including: expectations of intimate relationships, media messages, parenting, prince and princess romantic ideals, oneness, mindfulness, modern love constellations and chosen family configurations, sobriety, human behavior, couples communication, emotional fitness, the trap of blame and judgement, the importance of self-love, and more.

This episode serves for all listening to be reminded that “love defies the odds.” It invites us all to offer the love that is our highest and truest human essence to our beloved, our parents, friends, children, brothers, sisters, co-workers, and beyond.  Let’s love this world up.  Enjoy!
