Most of us face relationship struggles at some point and often feel confused as to how best to deal with them. Maybe it’s through falling out with a friend or family member, arguing yet again with your partner or struggling to get on well with a new boss or work colleagues. Whichever relationship we might struggle with, we can often find ourselves caught up repeating the same old negative cycles over and again. So, the big question is how do we free ourselves from this and learn to do things differently, so that we can build the kind of relationships we really want?
These 2 x 1 day workshops are designed to support you to understand why you might struggle with certain relationships and how to connect in new healthier ways. The workshops are broken down into two parts, held over two days in central Brighton. Part One is designed for anyone wanting to enhance all aspects of their relating and develop their ability to enjoy life in relationship with others – whether that’s with family, friends, work colleagues or in intimate life. Part Two is for those people who wish to explore how relationships offer the opportunity to heal from our negative pasts and deepen into more loving connections and a better understanding of ourselves. This workshop views our relationships as spiritual growth opportunities and moves us beyond ego stories into conscious relating.
Each workshop is a stand-alone offering, or both can be attended for the maximum benefit.
