Building Relationships

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to look at relationship with self, partners, family and community.

Bringing a clearer understanding of how to be in a healthy relationship with ‘self’ is most important. Through this, one gains understanding of how to create healthy, joyful and fulfilling relationships outside of self. This allows us to move beyond the understanding or expectation that relationships outside of ourselves offer the answer to our happiness. This can potentially relieve individuals from that eternal search for something that resides within each one of us. Loving self, accepting self, respecting self and being open to change, are part of this workshop.

Experiential exercises will be used to assist individuals to see what they bring into relationship and how they may be reacting to their own pain. When we understand more clearly what the term “co-dependant” is, we can see our own trauma, understand our history, and the ripple effect from generations before, and how they are all elements that impact relationships. Many great teachers from the past have said, “know yourself.” This workshop reminds people that exploration of self will bring understanding of behaviour, choices and healing.

What You Will Learn

  • How to be in a healthy relationship with self
  • Identify ways in which we block intimacy
  • What we bring to a relationship
  • How our own unmet needs manifest as demands on others
  • How to create healthy relationships with others by taking responsibility for our own happiness

“This workshop provided tools to see challenges in positive ways. I learned the importance of self-awareness and self-love – respecting self and others. Learning to say ‘no’ is a form of love for self and others.”
