Our Commitment To You
We work with all types of relationships;
married, unmarried, same sex, opposite sex, family, friends, and colleagues.
People come to us for different reasons. For some, it is about
getting through some difficult challenges and finding ways to consciously do
things better. For others, it's about deepening a good relationship into a more
conscious and better one. Still others, who have a very conscious relationship,
desire to take it to a new level of devotion in Sacred
Relationship. Others who have just recently come together, perhaps
considering marriage or another kind of partnership, want to deeply explore
their intentions and move forward in a conscious way.
When working with your relationship to improve
the quality of your experience, we start by asking each of you to first commit
to taking ownership and responsibility for 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
between you and how well you support each other as individuals and how well you
enhance the potential of your synergy in relationship.
We hold you both in a non-judgmental, loving
light, that recognizes the good and loving intentions that stem from your souls.
Our way is a gentle firmness that invokes honesty, goodness and humor.
Ultimately, our commitment is to help you to do the same for yourselves and for
each other even as you experience conflicts and challenges.
Progress is measured by your ability and
willingness to make new, meaningful, credible, authentic exciting and
enthusiastic commitments to each other and experience the positive
changes. Further progress can be seen as you begin to draw new, more authentic
relationships into your life. You'll know it when it happens!
IIn 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!
