About the Program
Imagine coming together with other couples who are eager to explore the evolving nature of relationships and the opportunities that lie hidden within their inevitable challenges. This program is all about understanding the true nature of relationship as a catalyst for change and transformation. This is a uniquely designed 6-week program for couples who want to take their relationship to the next level by entering into a shared process of self and discovery that encourages the possibility of deepening awareness, integrating new relational skills, and healing dynamics that deepen intimacy and connection.
In a small group setting, we will facilitate six couples through a process of becoming relationally embodied, intimately attuned and consciously present to each others unique experience. We believe that our capacity for healing and transformation as couples becomes amplified when we come together with others to share what we are learning in the context of our partnerships. We believe that every couple is unique and has a lot to share about what is working for them and what isn’t. We also believe that every relationship must pass through the same stages of initiation regardless of how different the details may be.
We recognize that the current culture has not adequately equipped us with the tools to be relationally coherent and many of the models we had growing up revealed dynamics that were often crippling to those involved. We experience a sense of liberation from shame when we hear stories from other couples that are similar to our own and realize that we are not alone in our attempts to do the hard work of creating healthy relationship dynamics. It is no longer serving us to hide the messy parts of being human behind closed doors. It is time that we embrace our humanity, especially as couples, and consider the possibility that what makes us human is what truly makes us beautiful, and that together, we can become more of who we are here to be with the loving support of others sharing the same journey.
We approach our understanding of relationship using the metaphor of a third entity or biosphere. When two people come together to form a partnership, they are forming a third entity: the relationship itself. This third entity represents what you and your partner bring to the relationship. It is the series of experiences, events and behaviors that happen when two people come together around a common purpose and it has a presence, form, energy and influence of its own. Like a biosphere, the quality of your presence and how you choose to show up in the relationship can either pollute or purify the space between you. As partners, we are each responsible for the health and well-being of our sacred third. Over the course of six weeks, we will explore your relational biosphere by bringing awareness to the nature of your interactions, styles of communication, patterns of behavior, daily habits, thoughts and feelings.
Using techniques drawn from Relational Life Therapy (RLT) and MindBody Therapy (MBT) we will facilitate a space in which you will:
- Strengthen the foundations of your partnership
- Illuminate areas that need tending and repair
- Foster presence, self awareness and intentionality
- Build meaningful relationships with other couples
- Gain life-long relational skills that can be applied to all your relationships
- Receive practical tools to help you create a relationship dynamic that keeps you vital.
