Growing through relationship
Our intimate relationship is often the place where we experience our strongest emotions – pleasurable as well as uncomfortable. Our partner might also be the best mirror we will ever get, helping us to discover our own blind spots. If we can keep our eyes and hearts open in the wonderful tornado called relationship, it can become a catalyst for growth and a source of interpersonal wisdom.
How will we work?
The workshop will be explorative, playful and thoughtful. We will engage the mind, heart and body. We will learn through a variety of media and approaches, including: discussions of illustrative film-clips; movement and dance; practical exercises; and narrative approaches. Alea and Mathias will also share their unpolished stories of the ups and downs from their own 17 years of relationship.
Language of instruction will be English.
What will you go home with?
It is the aim of the workshop that everyone leaves not only with new insight, but also with very concrete ideas and sense of direction regarding the next step on their relationship journey.
