During the 6 live, interactive classes, we’ll be focusing on:
Week 1: How We Become Divided in Relationships
In the first session, we’ll explore the Real Self we are each born into and the False Self that develops as a means of protection. We’ll discover how we can become divided from our Real Self due to our perceived need to protect ourself. We'll examine how the Real Self and False Self are established and their impacts, both on the quality of our relationships and our individual growth and development.
Week 2: The Dance of Relationships - Intimacy and Autonomy
In the second session, we’ll explore the universal relational tensions between intimacy and autonomy and what and how we learn about them from our caregivers. Further, we'll learn the impacts on our relationships when we don't clearly establish intimacy and/or aren't given the freedom to be autonomous.
Week 3 - The Dance of Intimacy
In this session, we'll explore what intimacy in relationships means (not just love relationships) and how it is developed and the role of the Real Self in creating and nurturing intimacy with others.
Week 4 - The Dance of Autonomy
In this session, we'll look at what autonomy in relationship means, how it's developed, what can inhibit it, and how it's supportive of both relationships and self-development. We'll also examine the role of the Real Self in supporting autonomy within relationships.
Week 5 - Recognizing Our Relational Patterns
This session will explore how our past relationships shape and inform our present and future relationships, how patterns are formed, common patterns, and how they can show up in our interpersonal conflicts.
Week 6 - Conflict as Curriculum
Building upon all prior sessions, this final session will reveal how our interpersonal conflicts are the fingers pointing to our personal development.
