Deepening Intimacy Through Forgiveness

ForgivenessIt’s easy to connect intimacy with sex but there is an even deeper level of intimacy that can be reached, and that is through the gift of vulnerability. There is nothing more precious that being able to trust others.

To do this, we need to knock down our walls to really let our loved-one in, but that is easier said than done.  We’ve built these walls over time to “protect” us from harm – so how do we shatter these walls that we may not even know are there?

The Key is Forgiveness

Fortunately, you have the key to shatter the walls.  It’s as simple as practicing forgiveness.   Forgiveness allows you to let go of the emotions that bind you to the past.  The feelings of “I could have…” “I should have…” or “I wish that were different.”

This program is for you if:

  • Your loved one easily pushes your “buttons”
  • You have trouble trusting your loved-one
  • You want to open up, but it feels too risky
  • Things are going well, but you value your relationship and want to deepen your connection

Relationship Essentials for Men (Women Invited!)

With Robert Glover, Ph.D.

With Robert Glover, Ph.D.

Historically, women have been thought of as the primary gatekeepers of intimate relationships. Unfortunately, there are several potential downsides to this paradigm:

  • Women often come to feel controlling, criticizing, and over-worked
  • Men often come to feel controlled, criticized, and unappreciated
  • Men tend to become defensive and avoidant and see their partner as a problem to be solved
  • Women tend to feel dismissed and lonely and have to guess what their partner is feeling and thinking
  • Both partners often end up feeling frustrated, resentful, powerless, and misunderstood (but doing more of the same thing, hoping for different results)

No wonder over 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce and countless others wither in silent desperation.

In this program Dr. Glover proposes a new paradigm of relationship interaction in which men become more fully present and take a more active leadership role in their relationship. Dr. Glover is not proposing that men become dominant or controlling, but that they become more conscious, honest, and transparent. In doing so, they can act with love and integrity in setting a tone that promotes open communication, problem resolution, reciprocity, trust, and sexual passion.
In this program, men will learn:

  • How to become conscious and present in their intimate relationship
  • How to become a good ‘ascertainer’
  • How to become honest and transparent with their partner
  • How to set the tone and take the lead with love and integrity

In this program, women will learn:

  • What it looks like when their partner becomes present in their relationship
  • How to trust and let go of control
  • How to more fully participate in a more reciprocal relationship
  • How to welcome increased sexual passion

The Chemistry of Love

Helen Fisher, Ph.D.

Pioneering anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher shares her as-yet-unpublished research (unless you count. Oprah Magazine and Psychology Today) proposing Four Psychological Types, the neuro-chemicals that determine each type, and the role of these four types in relationship compatibility.

Dr. Fisher proposes that humans have evolved four very broad basic biological personality profiles:

  • Explorer
  • Builder
  • Negotiator
  • Director

Dr. Fisher’s research shows that each type corresponds with variations in the neural systems for dopamine, serotonin, estrogen and testosterone. Each biological type is predisposed to think and act in predictable ways.

In this program you learn:

  • Four love types found in all romantic relationships
  • The role of neuro-chemicals in determining each type
  • Compatibility strengths and weaknesses of each type in long-term relationships
  • How to determine your Love Type
  • Which types you’re compatible with and how to spot them

You Don’t Have to Take It Anymore!

with Steven Stosny, Ph.D.

Millions of people walk on eggshells, constantly second-guessing themselves, editing what they say, worrying if they did things okay, trying to be in a good mood, all to prevent criticism, cold shoulders, angry outbursts, or to keep from creating negative impressions. They lose their very sense of self and don’t like the persons they’ve become.

  • The dynamics and effects of walking on eggshells
  • The harm to children
  • The way out
