This Level 2 course is a Deeper Dive into Authentic Relating. 

 

Expanding on your previous experience*, we will  hone our skills of empathic listening, gently explore our comfort zone by vulnerably revealing more of our inner emotional depth, and cultivate  a child-like curiosity about ourselves and one another. “People become interesting when you become interested.”

In these four 90-minute classes, you will:

 

  • integrate your three layers of intelligence: gut, heart and brain

  • go deeper with the core practices, to:

    • make the implicit explicit

    • make the hidden revealed

    • make the unspoken spoken

  • play with converting assumptions into genuine interest in one another’s inner world

  • learn how to take ownership of your feelings: converting judgments and blame into being clear with what you need/want from others

  • learn “emotional alchemy”: to harness emotional charge to deepen connection and create more room for choice, instead of defensive reaction.

 

“Authentic Relating embraces both sides of any polarity...Once we can learn the art of being able to hold or appreciate multiple perspectives, a tremendous amount of relational power and energy become available…”

 

“Conflict is an opportunity...to truly know ourselves and others by exploring the needs and values underneath our differing perspectives.”
