The Potential State Course for Couples:
Relationships, as most things in life, require skill.
We acquire these skills through various means - experience, observation, and learning.
Now more than ever, when so much of our life is focused inward and so much rides on our ability to successfully communicate and engage with our partner, it's important that we invest in our relational skills to ensure that we are engaging fully in the relationships that serve as our foundation.
Here's what you'll learn in the Potential State course for couples:
Skills to engage authentically
Tools to share (feelings, hopes, dreams as well as criticism, shortcomings, and disappointments) without hesitation
The ability to remain curious with and about our life-partner
Navigating conflict in a productive rather than destructive way
Tips to strengthen intimacy and connection
Ways to deepen our passion, sensuality and sexuality to ourselves and our partner
Means to foster a relational space that is warm and welcoming
The path to a fulfilling relationship
In this five-session course we will explore why and how relationships are one of the greatest mechanisms for self and relational growth so you can enjoy life - together.
The Potential State is the sweet spot between fantasy and reality - where imagination, love, joy, creativity and vitality live. Do not be fooled, it's not all fun and games - emotions are felt fully, and there is heat along with passion.
As children, we easily access our potential state, dipping between imagination and the real world, but as we grow older we drift further away from this wondrous place that was a vehicle to emotions, ourselves and meaningful relationships.
Cultivating and maintaining honest and close relationships is one of the most challenging tasks of our lives. Romantic love, mature love, being close but holding on to ourselves - are not things we learn in any formal way. At best, we had a model to look to at home, at worst we experience through trial and error.
But, there's another way -
By internalizing that our closest relationships are hotbeds for growth - mechanisms for stretching, adapting and developing - and actively learning skills and tools that can help us 'show up' and communicate effectively - even when it's uncomfortable - we will be able to leverage our relationship as a means to access all the emotions we once felt fully in our Potential State.
Love and vitality, curiosity and exploration, anger and disappointment, joy and vulnerability - are all there. Waiting for you - to feel freely. Together.
