Exploring the hidden dynamics in our relationships
For Individuals, Couples, Families, Friends, Colleagues, Therapists, Coaches and Facilitators
Byron Bay 17th (7pm – 9pm ), 18th and 19th April (10am – 5pm) 2015
(Friday evening can be attended on its own)
We are excited about offering this 2 ½ day workshop in Byron Bay, also known as Cavanbah, a traditional meeting place for the Arakwal people and other Bundjalung nation tribes, where relationships with each other, with nature and with dreaming tracks are of great importance.
Ram Dass once said that,
relationships are the royal road to enlightenment
In the many convolutions held in relationship dynamics we may indeed find the key to new learning and growth. Through experiencing the rapture, ecstasy, intimacy, attraction, horniness, challenge, conflict, fun, excitement, loss, jealousy, betrayal and the myriad of other encounters we have through exchange with others, we can access a pathway into deeper aspects of ourselves.
During the course of the workshop we will pay particular attention to our interactions and to our reactions, using our awareness to find transformative meaning within them, so that we are able to integrate new attitudes and ways of behaving both in relationship to ourselves and others.
Our special interest will be on what can be learned by understanding more about the qualities held by power and money and how they play out in relationships. We are often unaware of how economics, rank and power held, or not held, by those in interaction effect and influence the dynamics between us. In any one interaction we are juggling many different kinds of power, and giving intended and unintended signals to others. How we perceive the power differential depends on how we experience and use our own sense of power and position. We will learn how to recognize and use our different types of power more wisely and consciously through exploring hidden rank dynamics (spiritual, psychological and social). We will also look at the role money plays in how we value ourselves and others and how this is expressed in relationships between individuals, in groups, systems and cultures.
In exploring our own styles, attitudes and sense of power both theoretically and experientially during this weekend, we will be enhancing our ability to hold awareness of relationship dynamics and to metacommunicate about them, thus enabling us to interact authentically with others.
