Our love stories and close friendships get more complex and often more difficult the longer we are together and the deeper we go.
Without some understanding for the dynamics of love and intimacy, it is easy to get lost in conflict, hurt, misunderstanding and eventually separation. Intimacy brings up deeply buried wounds – disappointments, hurts and frustrations that come from needs not met as a child.
Unconsciously, we project these old hurts and frustrations on our lovers and close friends and then problems inevitably start. But with deeper understanding, we can go beyond the usual traps and dramas which cause distance and separation.
This process explores the three most important dynamics of loving –
1) The delicate dance of separating and melting, learning to come close and yet give each other space,
2) Our expectations – the “great saboteur” – looking behind the strategies and games that we trigger in each other and seeing what is behind each of our expectations, and
3) Communication – ways of expressing our needs with a quality of mutual understanding and respect.
This seminar helps build a basis for relating not from a space of fear, clinging and distance but from love and meditation.
This is a beautiful seminar to do together as a couple, however it is also possible to participate without a partner.
