Getting Ready for Deep Relationship - August 24th and 25th, Grand Junction Colorado
Please join us for this two-day intensive workshop in Mesa, Colorado on August 24th and 25th, 2013. This workshop is not exclusively for couples; we welcome anyone seeking to deepen their capacity for relationship in all contexts. The workshop will be held around the fire and will be kept small (no more than 24 participants) so that we may have the opportunity to go deep.
Getting Ready for Deep Relationship is a program for both singles and couples who desire to build healthy and empowering relationships based in trust, respect, and shared commitments. It is a highly interactive two day program that provides basic distinctions, tools and practices that enable participants to assess their current effectiveness in relationship and illuminate the actions for achieving a new level of brilliance. Relationship is a domain of learning that few of us have been taught. Like any other domain of learning, it requires distinctions, practices, and teachers.
The program presents four foundational models of relationship and 13 qualities that show how:
• we co-create the future
• communicate effectively
• learn quickly
• build and rebuild trust
• engage in difficult conversations and conflict in a productive way
• reignite the spark of loving tenderness
Normally held around a fire, up to 24 participants experience a safe and intimate environment to explore and work with real concerns and issues. Individuals discover great commonality of their experience and can speak openly without shame or shyness for previous hurts or failures, discover what didn’t work, and move to resolution in a mood of wonder.
The program is led by Karen Aberle and Cristián Valenzuela, a couple that has been together for more than 25 years. They bring together the discourse of the mind with the wisdom of the heart. They were both trained in the philosophy of language and are initiated shamans in the tradition of the Huichol Indians of central Mexico with whom they have studied for more than 15 years. The heart discourse brings forth the sacredness of all life and allows us to see the other as a legitimate other, a treasure and a gift for our own path and learning.
