Our Commitment To You
When working with singles to improve the quality
of your relationship experiences, we start by asking you to first commit to
taking ownership and responsibility for your self. How do you talk to yourself?
How compassionate are you with yourself? How do you care for yourself? How do
you hold yourself accountable?
From there, we can begin to explore the dynamics
of how you experience others in relationships and create new relationships..
We hold you in a non-judgmental, loving light,
that recognizes the good and loving intentions that stem from your soul and the
souls of others to whom you relate. Our way is a gentle firmness that invokes
honesty, goodness and humor. Ultimately, our commitment is to help you to do the
same for yourself and for others even as you experience conflicts and
Progress is measured by your ability and
willingness to create new, meaningful, credible, authentic intentions in your
current relationships with friends, family and peers and see positive changes in
your experience. Further progress can be seen as you begin to draw new, more
authentic relationships into your life. You'll know it when it happens!
In the process, we employ a variety of tools,
teachings and experiential opportunities. We lean heavily on mind-body processes
that get you in touch with your authentic self, your deep feelings and knowings.
This can be quiet meditative process or a very active and
expressive process. Sometimes you will work with both of us and sometimes you
will work individually with one of us. Sometimes you will be by yourself. Through it all, we are
trained to create a container of unconditional love, holding you in the highest
regard, with divine acceptance and safety for whatever your soul needs to bring
forth into the experience for your own growth, highest good and well-being.
This work assists you to uncover mental insights
and awarenesses of yourself and others; new ways to think and communicate. Pain from our past really points to a need for healing around
whatever those stories may represent. Until there is healing, it is difficult to
move forward. Therefore, we will be encouraging you to let go of much that is
mental (Don't worry, we'll let you know when that time has come), to stay
focused in your feelings and body. We've learned that this is the best way to
accelerate healing and insight and it cuts through years of therapy.
As layers of hurt and misunderstanding are
removed, you will find it becomes easier to let go of the past and to envision
new ways of creating the future for yourself and for your relationships. We use many practical tools to help you tap into and stay in your
conscious awareness and be more creative in your choices. It actually feels fun!
From this new point of strength and clarity in
your self, you will then find it more rewarding to explore the dynamics of how
you can relate to others in authentic, creative ways, that at the very least
keep you safe, and at other times allow for synergy and creativity that solves
problems and generates deep connectedness and intimacy..
