In Learning Love Work we face the wounds of shame, shock and abandonment, we learn to understand, express, recognize and feel them. When we are not aware of these wounds, we can feel depressed, dependent or we can get into relationships with unavailable or abusive partners, feeling lonely and isolated.
This seminar helps to build a foundation to relate from a space of love and meditation, instead of fear and dependence. The Learning Love Work has a specific approach that is gentle but effective. In a relaxed and supportive environment, we integrate guided meditations, carefully designed exercises, and teachings, to help people heal their wounds and discover their natural essence, joy, and passion for life. The work is without pressure in order to give each person the trust and tranquility necessary to explore his or her inner world profoundly and lovingly.
Our love stories and close friendships get more complex and often more difficult the longer we are together and the deeper we go. Without some understanding for the dynamics of love and intimacy, it is easy to get lost in conflict, hurt, misunderstanding and eventually separation. Intimacy brings up deeply buried wounds - disappointments, hurts and frustrations that come from needs not met as a child. Unconsciously, we project these old hurts and frustrations on our lovers and close friends and then problems inevitably start. But with deeper understanding, we can go beyond the usual traps and dramas which cause distance and separation and learn to grow and mature through the disappointments and frustrations. This process explores the three most important dynamics of loving:
- The delicate dance of separating and melting, learning to come close and yet give each other space
- Looking behind the strategies and games that we trigger in each other and learning to contain the feelings behind our expectations
- Communication, ways of expressing ourselves with a quality of mutual understanding, love and respect. This seminar helps build a basis for relating not from a space of fear, clinging and distance but from love and meditation.
