Training and Workshops Update from Sue and Brett
Our world is in such a state of flux (think Brexit!), and couples are looking for powerful, innovative and do-able ways of holding their connection in the midst of many, many different conversations and experiences. They are looking for an overarching guiding principle that helps them navigate creatively through the turbulence that erupts in intimate relationships, understanding in the depths of their being that a loving, flexible and solid relationship gives them inestimable strength with which to meet the world.
Such a guiding principle needs to be much bigger than a model or technique – it needs to give them a North Star when they feel lost…a way to stay on course heading in their chosen direction.
Each emergence of our new workshop (and there have been a few over the years) has been shaped by our own journey as a couple holding our direction North as well as watching countless couples turn towards their true authentic selves using the guiding principles we offer.
Each workshop shows a trend – We are saying it simpler!
So why limit the size of the workshops, you might ask?
In June this year we held a 3 day advanced training for professionals in the work we do and because of conflicting events we had 4 people participating. This was a surprise to us – and yes, a disappointment because we are passionate about teaching this wonderful way of working to as many people as possible. However right from the beginning we both had a sense of the universe speaking to us and by day two it had become clear that we were flowing in the joy of teaching at a new level –deeply appreciating the space that only such a small intimate group affords. By the end of the training we saw our new direction opening up clearly before us. It was in many ways an old lesson re-learned in a new setting i.e.; give yourself whatever you need to do your best work!
We understood that we thrive as Guides with smaller groups because it gives us the time and space to really take the journey with couples or trainees in a very intimate way – encouraging, mentoring and challenging them to move back to their authentic selves. Investing ourselves in this way opens the potential for amazing leaps of healing and growth which was certainly true of this group.
We want everyone we spend time with to have that sort of deeply nourishing, transformative experience and so from this autumn we will be offering these limited opportunities to people who value the chance to deepen their own personal journey and skills within an intimate setting.
We believe passionately that in offering our life’s work to couples we are not only giving our gift to the world but also honouring the surging wave of people reaching for new, more authentic ways of being based on a deep understanding of our intrinsic connection to the universe.
