2.5 DAY RETREAT HAMPSHIRE (UK) | From Pain to Peace: Growing in Relationships II


  • Long Barn Newton Valence United Kingdom (map)

About the weekend

Relationships with friends, familly, beloveds can bring up a lot of pain and conflict. At times we can resist, blame and repeat patterns over and over again. In this workshop we will learn and practice tools that are essential to deeper connection and relating from a mature space.

We are often not aware of mechanisms that prevent us from living deeper and more fulfilling relationships. In this 2.5 days retreat we will very gently generate awareness and learn how to let go of the ways in which we at times sabotage or prevent ourselves from living the relationships (and life) we would really want to live. As a result we can not only live deeper relationships but also learn to live with more joy and lightness in the relationship to ourselves.

The 2.5 days will consist of a mix of inner exercises, guided meditations, constellations and short, pragmatic explanations. The approach will be based on the model of the Learning Love institute (www.learningloveinstitute.com) as well as somatic healing methods (www.somaticexperiencing.com).

The weekend is for singles, individuals and couples. Couples can choose for themselves if they would like to attend jointly or individually. Even if only of the two is interested and wants to come that is perfect. The work focuses on our individual unconscious barriers and so very often the relationship still shifts when just one person attends.

This is not a repeat of the earlier April workshop and we will address slightly different topics so the retreat is suitable both for people who are new to the work or attended the April retreat. In this weekend the focus will be on how fear impacts our relating, how to recognize it and step-out of it as well as on how to transform co-dependent behaviors.

This work is about:
- learning how to be connected as well as independent and authentic in relationships
- bringing awareness to reactivity: learning how to respond and not to react
- recognizing and transforming unconscious ways in which we sabotage relating and deeper connection
- learning how to transform relationship pain

Continuing the work after the weekend: In order for the work to fruit it can at times help to stay connected as a group and to the path. Every 6 weeks I will offer reconnect groups on Friday evening 5:30-7pm at the Light Centre Victoria (right next to Light Centre tube). Anyone who attended one of the "From Pain to Peace" workshops or is working privately with me can attend.
