Upcoming Workshops

Join us for an introductory 2 hour workshop to explore the roots of relationship dysfunction and practice ways of more effectively communicating and connecting. We discuss what “Irrelationship” is, and how it gets started in early caregiving relationships in childhood with parent-child role reversals.  We explore the adult roles of “Performer” and “Audience”, and how they play out in adult song and dance routines which keep us from experiencing emotional intimacy while creating a facade that we are trying our hardest and doing out best to get along, along with other foundational concepts which set the stage for optimal change.

The second part of the workshop engages participants in practical exercises which begin to develop greater capacity for hospitable listening and non-accusatory speaking, setting the stage for mutually respectful communication and compassionate empathy.  Ultimately, the basic shift from ineffective and adverserial communication to hospitable communication allows relationships to begin to shift from negative and repetitive cycles, and move in new directions toward positive change.

This workshop is an introduction to the Irrelationship model of change, and is suitable for adults, single and in relationships. We offer two sections:
