Learn and practice how to build a solid foundation for a healthy sustainable Integral love relationship. Realize in an exercise that when we fall in love and enter into a committed relationship, four essential dimensions of our human existence get into intimate contact.
- Our individual minds and feelings (shown in the upper left quadrant).
- Our individual physical bodies and behavior (shown in the upper right quadrant).
- Our cultural background and values, including family, friends, colleagues, and community (shown in the lower left quadrant).
- Our social environment, such as food, clothing, home, money, transportation (shown in the lower right quadrant).
Often, individuals are attracted to each other and focused on only one or two of these four dimensions/quadrants, while neglecting or ignoring the others. This creates relationship conflicts and breakdowns, especially when partners focus on different dimensions, for example one on the physical and cultural, and the other on the mind and social.
In an Integral Relationship, both partners balance and harmonize all four dimensions in healthy ways, and learn, heal, grow, awaken, and manifest together.
