Couples' Online IoPT Workshop
Saturday, December 2nd, 9:30am - 1:30pm MT
- From 25 US dollarsFrom $25
Couple relationships can be incredibly close and rewarding and they can also be very challenging. Even when they're good, they are often the context in which we meet our deepest wounds -- initially in the form of triggers. Without an understanding of how early trauma, particularly attachment traumas, can impact adult intimate relationships, it's likely that partners will focus on the shortcomings of oneanother and find themselves repeatedly coming up against the same irritations, confusion, perceived incompatibilities, etc. In this workshop, there will be time for both members of one couple to have their own processes or 'self-encounters'. The self-encounters will begin with an intention related to the relationship. This can be a simple statement, question, or even just a few words that reflect what it is that the intention giver wishes to discover, understand, or achieve - what they want from this process. Then, by asking others in the group to 'resonate' for words in the intention, the intention giver is able to meet parts of themself, often quite young, that are holding experiences, feelings, and sensations that relate to the intention. As the self-encounter evolves, there is generally an increased sense of understanding and connection between the intention giver and their inner parts as well as greater clarity and/or resolution regarding the intention itself. In couples IoPT, while one person is working, the other will simply be observing. In this way, he or she can glimpse the deeper experience of their beloved, opening the way for increased understanding, compassion, and empathy. Because the nature of this work depends largely on the shared energy and experience of the group, the movements that take place and resolutions that are found for the working couple can have meaning for all. I warmly welcome you, whether you choose to have a process of your own, resonate for others, or simply observe. The cost for a non-working couple is $50 ($25/each) and for the working couple, $150 ($75/each). If you and your partner would like to reserve the working spots, please confirm with Katrina that they are available before booking.
