The Art Of Connection
Are you ready to experience more fulfilling relationships, with yourself and others? Do you desire an openess for deep, desirable, loving, and intimate connection?
This workshop will help you transform old and damaging communication patterns. You will learn how to identify triggers, how to discover what your underlying needs are and how to communicate these in a non-confrontational way to another. This workshop will completely transform how you relate to others, and will bring you a whole new level of awareness to your life.
Deep inside us all, we want a meaningful connection with ourselves and others. We all want to feel loved, accepted and have a sense of belonging. Unconscious patterns, fears, beliefs, behaviours, and assumptions can deeply impact our lives, often in very unhelpful ways. These patterns can be triggered in relationships, and we often find ourselves repeating these unconscious patterns, reacting to people with frustration, anger, withdrawing and shutting down.
Listening to our emotions is the first step in recognising these patterns – rather than letting them run our lives. It is the difference between having emotion and them having us. Emotion gives us information, alerting us towards our underlying needs, like safety, connection, autonomy and respect. When our needs are unmet we feel unpleasant emotions and when our needs are being met, we start to feel more pleasant emotions.
Sadly, our modern society encourages us to ignore or repress our emotions. We overvalue rational thinking by living in a head centric world, developing fear and resistance toward our emotions. We instead, numb and distract ourselves, or react to what we are feeling, rather than listening to the information they give us.
This workshop is for you if you:
- Want to engage in a fulfilling relationship with your partner, family, friends, and colleagues.
- Don’t feel heard and understood by others.
- Have been hurt by a past relationship and want to heal the wounds.
- Want to find a meaningful relationship.
- Feel disconnected from yourself and/or others.
- Experience conflict in your relationships, that never seem to fully resolve.
- Experience continuing cycles and patterns in relationships and can’t see why.
