The Colors of 'I Love You' - Navigating Relationship and Spirit

Fee: $35
Class may run over set end time. Please allow for additional time in your plans.
We are born dependent and need others to care for us so we can survive. Our first bonding to the 'other' begins here. A kind of love is born mixed with dependence and need. Many of us (most?) seek this same kind of nurturing bond in our adult relationships. Can we separate love from need? Can we navigate the bonds we form with others in healthy awareness and grow into deeper intimacy, loving ourselves and the other? On the spiritual path many traditions look at intimate bonding as a stumbling block. Is it or is it the greatest opportunity we have to grow into deeper love and awakening? Let's gather together and share our experience of love, relationship and spirit. We'll look at the many definitions of love and then how each of those touch us personally. I'll offer the All Love meditation to open our hearts along with a safe Tantric exercise to deepen our experience. Come join us and see what unfolds. Together we may find a path to deeper love

    Here's our poem from last night by Rumi translated by Coleman Barks. I Love You!

    Birdwings

    Your grief for what you have lost lifts a mirror
    up to where you’re bravely working.

    Expecting the worst, you look, and instead
    here’s the joyful face you have been wanting to see.

    Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
    If it were always a fist or always stretched open,
    you would be paralyzed.

    Your deepest presence is in every small contracting
    and expanding.
    The two beautifully balanced and coordinated
    as birdwings.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
