Relationships are a tremendous source of growth if we’re willing to go through the fire of relating.
Working with differences through the lens of personal sovereignty and relational reality can be very potent for couples who are stuck with patterns of frustration, resentment, insecurity, control and despair.
By combining practical relational skills, self-inquiry, shadow work and willingness from both partners involved to do the work of reckoning and relating – we will uncover untapped freedom and joy of sovereign unions.
Marriage – Khalil Gibran
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow
not in each other’s shadow.

"Incredibly knowledgeable and amazingly patient. Wonderful teacher. The exercises are already helping."
"Turned what could have been a boring lecture into an intriguing conversation where I felt both listened to and respected, while getting helpful answers."
All of our classes, sessions, workshops, content and products are offered for free in the spirit of the Gift Economy. The practice of generosity takes us beyond separate self-hood and constitutes a basic ethos at the heart of community, as it is the antidote to scarcity.
Rather than offering our work as a service to be bought, we ask for contributions to make this work possible. Please receive our offerings as a gift. If you feel inspired to reciprocate, please become a patron or make a donation, whichever feels right in your heart. The generosity we receive makes our generosity possible.
We offer all of our products and services for free because we don't want financial constraints to get in the way. If we all feel like we're the right fit, then we want to work with you – so remember that gift economy means you receive what you need, and give what you can to whomever you may.
