Building the Container
Intimate Relationship is one of the most important aspects in life to many people, and yet we often get no guidance on how to do it well. Generally we just follow the patterns that we’ve received from our parents and our families, perhaps with a promise to ourselves that ‘we’ll be better’, or ‘we’re not going to do it like that’. There is no class on relating in school, our society valuing things like logic, reason and memory much higher than the skills that are important for inter and intra personal relating.
The skills, and practices to develop those skills, that are vital for a healthy relationship are what we will be exploring in this workshop. At the top of that list are good communication, honesty, trust, Self-awareness, empathy, the ability to be vulnerable and presence.
These qualities consciously mixed together is the solid foundation of a beautiful conscious relationship. They create the ‘container’ in which the magic can happen, the sacred alchemy of transformation, evolution and growth, unfolding through the love and nurturing, as well as the challenge that relationship brings.
This powerful container is needed to for the relationship to survive amidst change, both internal and external. There are changes that happen to us as individuals that relationships without a powerful foundation cannot hold, and there are legion reasons, events, and influences from outside that rock and devastate relationships.
With this strong container in place, the relationship can not only survive that rocking, but can grow through it. The container is all about creating a space for powerful healing and transformation to unfold in.
Ultimately this leads not necessarily to a happier intimacy, but a deeper and more mature intimacy. A depth of vulnerability and a strength of character and a profound state of love.
This workshop will be quite experiential, offering theory that is then put into practice. All of the teachings and techniques are tried and tested. After participating in this event you are welcome to join our ‘Working Group’, meeting bi-weekly to continue to explore and deepen this work, in a powerful group container.
