Dynamics of Relationship

The Art of Love

It is in our love relationships that we experience the most ecstasy as well as the most pain in our lives. Because of what we have learned about love and because of a child’s close bonding to his parents, we have developed certain beliefs and attachments that create unnecessary misery in our adult life. Love and relating between man and woman, which could give us a taste of our divine nature, often becomes a source of dissatisfaction, anxiety and suffering.

In this training we expose false beliefs about love and re-connect with a deep knowing about the true meaning of love. We distinguish between our conditioning and our true nature as man or woman. Clearing hangovers from the past we find what makes us weak and what gives us strength, in order to relate from the space of an adult to the other sex rather than from the space of a child. In order for love relationships to work, we need to grow up from the ‘blind’ love of a child that either expects too much or wants to give too much. In ‘knowing’ love we clearly see and agree to the possibilities and limitations of a relationship. This happens when we become conscious and connect to the beauty of our aloneness. Then love means freedom.

This training combines various approaches to understanding the different dimensions of the man-woman relationship and of the male-female polarity in general.
• we use Energywork and a Gestalt model to explore the different possible ways relating between two people can happen
• we work with Family and Relationship Constellations and experience the powerful effects of family conscience on our behaviour
• we explore the energetic dynamic that happens when a man and woman meet on a physical, emotional and spiritual level
• we use different guided meditations and learn to see the other as a mirror to help us contact our own inner man and woman

This training is for people who want to improve the quality of their intimate relationships as well as for those who have difficulties in creating lasting relationships. It is a step towards transforming both the fear of loneliness and intimacy. It is also for people who work with people and who want to understand in which way clients coming with these issues can be helped.

“Relationship is a Koan. And unless you have solved a more fundamental thing about yourself, you cannot solve it. The problem of love can be solved only, when the problem of meditation has been solved, not before it….
Unless meditation is achieved, love remains a misery. Only two meditators can live in love.”
