Longing for Real Relationship

Longing for Real Relationship- with or without a partner, with Sherry Marshall. May 2010 Hobart

Many of us often have a longing for real relationship, whether we are with or without a partner. Whether we are in an intimate relationship with someone or not, we may experience many of the same aspects in our lives.

When we are single, we are often in the ‘high dream’ of meeting the love of our life. Yet, when we are together with someone, we often wish for solitude or dream about another partner or experience recycling conflicts and relationship issues. We look for sharing and belonging and feel lonely and disconnected. We search outside of ourselves for completion, yet when we feel happy inside by ourselves, we still yearn for intimate conversation and challenge, nurture, comfort and physical closeness.

Dealing with freedom and commitment issues, conflicting needs, not feeling understood, acknowledged or appreciated are regular occurrences in many relationships.

Meeting together on this one day workshop, we will explore these topics using Process Psychology theory, inner work and practical exercises and methods to;

1.   Deepen relationship with ourselves and others on the ‘consensus reality,’ normal world level.

2.  We will explore the dreaming and the sentient or deepest essence levels, thus allowing us to connect more openly with current or new partners.

3.  Learn communication skills to deal with relationship conflicts and discover how we ‘get in and out of trouble’!

4.  Explore freedom and commitment issues.
