Workshop Details

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate test and proof, the work for which all the other work is but preparation.
-Rilke
Life is a precious gift. We have all experienced moments of feeling totally alive, especially within our relationships. When beliefs, defenses, fears, and emotions from the past enter into our present-day relationships, we lose our ability to feel love, trust, and joy.
The goal of this workshop is to experience these restrictive patterns and to create new ways to relate to ourselves, others, and our work, thus enabling us to create new beginnings. This workshop can help you:
• Find out how your relationships mirror you
• Clarify what you want and how to get it
• Examine ways you sabotage yourself
• Learn more about how others see you
• Learn practical tools and knowledge that will help create empowered relationships
In a supportive and safe environment, experiential exercises will help you become more adept at listening, empathizing, truth-telling, creative problem solving, and taking responsibility to create the relationships you want. Come alone or with a partner. The workshop will draw from Gestalt, Reichian work, dance, imagery, and meditation.
