Day 1: Love is unconditional, relationships are not:
How is it that we can feel unconditional love towards all people and creation, and may experience a unique irresistible sexual attraction, deep heart and emotional resonance, and divine soul connection towards another human being, and yet often find sustaining a healthy love relationship in a lived day-to-day reality arduous? On this first day we will explore why love is unconditional and relationships are not by putting the material, biological, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimension of romantic relating into a developmental cultural and social context. Detailed description.
Day 2: Growing together:
Most adults continue to grow in consciousness after adolescence, but few understand how this growth impacts our lives and love relationships in particular. Together, we will explore eight stages of consciousness development in a relational context. This knowledge will allow you to identify your own and the level of development in others to understand conflicts that arise between individuals, couples and groups with differing world-views, values and meaning-making structures. Detailed description.
Day 3: Polarities, spirituality, sexuality, and complexes:
What is happening on a psychological/subtle and energetic/causal level when we deeply resonate with another human being? On the second day we will explore and practice how to cultivate the healthy dimensions of two feminine and masculine polarities that can create exhilarating and lasting sexual passion, as well as synergy in day to day life. This exploration will be followed by a dive into various forms and depths of spiritual experiences, leading us to non-duality, a state/stage that cannot be talked about but only pointed to. We will also explore the connection between psychology, spirituality and sexuality, and how repressed male and female qualities create complexes that make the opposite sex attractive and challenging at the same time. Detailed description.
Day 4: Awaken to your life’s purpose and share it with a partner
Humans have a Biological Purpose (BP) which unfolds naturally, a Transformational Purpose to learn, heal, grow, and awaken, and a Transcendental Purpose (TP) to create more Goodness, Truth, Beauty and Functionality. Some live their TP’s naturally, while others need to awaken to them and discover their natural talents in order to live and share their TP with a partner in an Integral Love Relationship. On the fourth day we will explore and practice the difference between our BP and TP, the difference between spiritual awakening and awakening to our TP, four different discovery methods of our natural talents, skill development to enact (live) our natural talents, different levels of impact and stages of expression of our TP, ways to effectively share our TP with the world through a Vision and Mission statement, and how to attract a compatible partner to co-create an Integral Love Relationship that makes the world a better place. Detailed description.
Day 5: Falling in love with someone good for you:
Why we fall in love with certain people and not with others may ultimately remain a mystery, despite the fact that we now know many of the biological and psychological aspects of this uniquely human experience that brought us here in the course of evolution. In this final module of our training, we will explore (1) states/phases of falling in love, (2) how knowing about personality and attachment types can benefit singles in choosing a partner, and couples in co-creating synergy around their similarities and differences, (3) how we can welcome conflict between equals as an opportunity for ongoing healing and growth that makes relationships sustainable, rewarding and exciting, and (4) how singles (through finding/attracting a compatible partner) and couples can move from need-based asymmetric transactional love relationships to fulfillment based symmetric transcendental Integral Love relationships.
