Listening changes when the space is created to feel supported by everyone in the group while, at the same time, hearing “new information on how to listen” and having the courage to participate in the guided practice suggestions without worrying about right and wrong ways of speaking.

There is joy in working with individuals committed to improving the intimacy in their relationships. It is not the traditional sharing circle of going on and on about our stories and talking about it! The learning comes through the experience of sharing in a precise pattern of speaking and listening to increase the potential of spontaneous vulnerability and freedom of speech. There are no rituals, feathers, labels, conditions or talk therapy!
Our learning time together become a unified experience of a series of planned practices designed to learn through the experience itself. In the closing feedback I hear unique and individual comments of learning that is coming from their own source of creative expression. The tools have laid out a pattern for exploring deeper within and the awareness that is expressed is simple, intimate and beautiful. It is easy for the ears of others to really take it in!
The members of the group now have a new memory experience to notice the differences of their interactions with their partner through the week until we met again. Mission accomplished and we didn’t have to go on 3, 7 or 9 day retreat, be healed or fixed, or hand ourselves over to any higher power or focus upon our conditions. A set of intimacy tools that can be taught easily and be yours by your willingness to experience it.
