Holy Fire energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness.

Monday, January 15, 2018 at 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM PST

East Bay Community Space
507 55th St
Oakland, CA 94609

We all want to feel joy in our relationships and to be more kind and accepting with our intimate partners, but when unexpected conflicts arise, these intentions can easily fall away.

Fortunately, by studying our own relationship challenges and bringing mindfulness and intelligence to them, we can learn how conflict can be a doorway to deeper insight, deeper connection and deeper love.

In this month’s Learn to Love, couples counselor George Taylor will help guide couples onto a transformational path of healing and growth. By practicing essential mindfulness and communication skills, participants will gain concrete tools to bring more love and connection into their relationship.

Recognizing how many of these conflicts arise from human conditioning and experiences we had as children, we can move away from shame and blame and move towards a deeper relationship with our partners. This model for thriving and joyful relationships is called A Path for Couples, 10 essential practices developed and time-tested through George’s extensive personal and professional experience.

This workshop is designed for those in new and committed relationships, and open to all genders and relationship orientations.

Cost: $40 - $45 / couple
