Elusive Peace-How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts

When people feel heard a shift happens and intimacy is developed

Douglas Noll, peacemaker, award winning attorney, and award winning author, along with his wife Aleya Dao, a gifted sound healer, energy practitioner and Doctor of Oriental Medicine, have created a series of videos to teach couples the answers and secrets for developing, maintaining, and growing emotional intimacy. “We all want to feel loved, listened to and have our needs met. Yet, the inability to accomplish these things is the exact reason for relationships ending and couples suffering, which is sad since strategies to create intimacy can be learned,” Noll says.

A video sample can be viewed on You Tube ( The series teaches couples to pay attention to the emotional experience of their partner, rather than focusing on the words they are saying. “When we are heard by our partner, we are soothed, honored, and feel hope that our needs can be met,” Noll explains. “When we tune into the feeling our partner is experiencing, they know we are connecting to them intimately,” Dao adds.

The couple teaches how empathy creates a bridge during conflict. Noll, a professional mediator uses communication skills to resolve conflicts between families, couples, corporations and organizations. “I find that when people in conflict feel heard by the other party, a shift happens and resolution can come easily after that experience,” Noll observes. Dao uses her skills as a sound healer and energy practitioner to teach couples about the energetic shift that can happen when couples experience empathy without judgment from their partners. Combining the couple’s two different practices into practical and easy-to-understand strategies for couples is resonating with audiences resulting in hundreds of viewers within hours after posting their first video. “We know we are onto something here. Using the combined skills and different approaches from our two practices merges the emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs for couples to create authentic intimacy that results in the joy and bliss most couples strive for but cannot achieve,” Noll says.
