Description

"When you're lovers in a dangerous time
Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime
But nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight" ~ Bruce Cockburn

This workshop explores the questions:

"When the world and ourselves are on fire, how will we choose to love, to live, and to rebel in such a way that we create the conditions not only for a truly regenerative society, but including our own thriving and fulfillment? Second, what are the evolving paths and practices of love, partnership, and human development support our mutual thriving and fulfillment?"

During these two days, we will explore a set of paths and practices of love and partnership as they intersect:

  • Our local, national, and global conditions that are inviting a new level of human engagement from us.
  • The constraints and liberation of our sexuality, gender, and partnering relationships.
  • The evolution of human partnership, pair bonding, and what are the emerging forms of relationship practice.
  • The paths and practices of ancient and emerging wisdom traditions that enact human development, liberation and fulfillment.
  • Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence practices.
  • Trauma and its relationship to the erotic, taboo, sexuality, emotion, and relationship.
  • Character development.
  • Your commitments...to yourself, your partner(s), friendships, family, children, vocation, this world, and potentially to a sense of sacredness that transcends and includes each.
