Our Current Book: Shadow Dance: Liberating the Power & Creativity of Your Dark Side By David Richo Our "shadow" is the collection of negative or undesirable traits we keep hidden—the things we don't like about ourselves or are afraid to admit: egotist, non-"PC" proclivities, forbidden sexual desires. But it also includes our positive, untapped potential—qualities we may admire in others but disavow in ourselves. Befriending the shadow makes fear an ally and enables us to live more authentically. It also automatically improves our interpersonal relationships, because we are freed from the need to project our own negativity onto others, and we become more acutely aware when theirs is projected onto us. David Richo looks for where the shadow manifests in personal life, family interaction, religion, relationship, and the world around is. He shows how to use the gentle practice of mindfulness to work with our shadow side, and he provides numerous exercises for going deeper. He is remarkably skillful at making the shadow concept not only easy to understand, but supremely practical for enhancing the quality of our lives.

What happens when you put Relationships First? Except for breathing, talking is what we do most. But unlike breathing, which is dangerous only if you DON’T do it, talking can be dangerous if you DO it. Learning how to talk without judgement and to listen without reacting makes conversations safe and provide the essential skills of a good relationship. Knowing how to have safe conversations may not solve problems or issues, but nothing can be resolved without those skills. Most conversations are monologues where two people are talking and neither is listening. Talking to each other rather than WITH each other makes conversation, itself, the problem and obscures the issue. Connecting is HEALING! Safe Conversations® is a structured, simple, three step way of talking that invites partners to take turns sending and receiving. While it serves as an efficient communication tool for the exchange of energy and information, its magic and power lies in the fact that the structure makes it SAFE to talk. And safety makes connecting possible. When connecting happens, healing occurs. That’s what makes Safe Conversations® a transformational process. Join us and bring the power of Safe Conversations®. THIS IS FOR Couples who have participated in the Couplehood® program Safe Conversations® Workshop AND for those NEW to the process of Safe Conversations®. Come practice Dialogue in a safe and fun environment! It's OKAY to come ALONE. You can also bring your spouse, an adult family member or friend.
