Originally from Denmark, Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky is a remarkable artist that enjoys creating tapestries, paintings, and other things from different materials. She is the owner of the upcycled clothing design business, the Artsy Goddess Studio. Rainbow facilitates playful voice empowering workshops and encourages women to express themselves from a deeper authentic place within by hosting a monthly gathering of the Red Tent Women’s Circle in her home. In addition to being an inspiration to women, Rainbow also helps and supports couples as she works with me in co-facilitating couple’s workshops.


My wife, Rainbow, joins me on this episode to share our life as a couple and how we encouraged each other in being authentic. We discuss her struggles with shyness earlier in her life and how she now inspires others to find and accept their own unique voice. We also discuss how Rainbow encouraged and supported me in one of the biggest authentic turning points in my life - which is a very personal story that I never shared publicly in the past.


“We are genuinely interested in hearing what the other has to say.” - Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky
