How can you take steps to realize nourishing contact with yourself and then develop the relationship. The tools that you already have in house such as self-reflection, expressing yourself, clear language, nourishing words and making the timbre of your words congruent with your deeper feeling. Can you focus on where you are now, which is the common thread in your life? Can you remember a moment when the world felt open to you.
In our relationships with our loved ones, we all have the opportunity to wake up to a deeper truth. When we shift our FOCUS to what we are here TO GIVE and BECOME for those we love, the whole game changes.
With our family, friends, loved ones, neighbors, teammates – ALL relationships are a place we GIVE, not to get.
We give our LIGHT, our PRESENCE, our ATTENTION and our pure LOVE – not just on Valentine’s Day but EVERY day!
If you are not currently in a relationship, this can be a time to clearly define the vision of the love you desire. What would you create and share together? WHO would you be willing to become the best version of yourself for everyone you love? How do you want to show up for your loved ones? And for those of you who can’t be physically around your sweetheart, how could you use creativity and caring to make them feel your love? ❤️
Involvement, giving acceptance, revealing and expressing a deeper truth.
In the training attention to being able to get in touch with that deeper truth within yourself in order to make more direct contact on a deeper level. Start using the language of feeling, of experiencing. Using pure direct and clear language to express what you feel on a deeper level and that is perceiving and speaking in the here and now.
Ask for information about relationship sessions or the subsequent relationship training in blocks of a few days spread over the year and with a certificate of participation at the end.
In this relationship week using Gestalt principles you can make new discoveries “on the way to a nurturing relationship and really meet the other in being”. Restore contact with one’s own skills that may have been lost through parenting and education programs. When we can practice recognizing “think and do patterns,“ language patterns ”and“ pure w a r e m e n in the now ”and when you observe lovingly, you can make the conscious choice to do differently. Nourishing the relationship. Using the language differently. You can relax and unwind from the automatic response patterns. Back to the source of experience in yourself and purify the colorings that you have acquired in daily work and life.
Each of us already has that deeper insight with us. Due to the daily pressure and the effect of life events, you often do not get to that. Training serves to focus and discover who you are in essence: the path to being a human entrepreneur in your existence. This brings you wisdom, strength, leadership. You discover how to communicate without judgment and how to manage conflict. So that you can fully utilize your zest for life, in your relationship, in your work and in daily contacts. The Gestalt training can also be done individually, by means of a relationship conversation or in an afternoon group, weekend or intensive weekly training.
