Feeling Like A Family Again

Finding the Way Back From Dysfunction to Understanding, Warmth and Connection

“Great experiential skills that could be used right now. Very realistic.”

Tired of the Same Family Breakdowns? Ready for More Connection, Cooperation and Love?

Can’t it just be a little easier?

You work hard to keep your family happy. 

But despite all the good work you do, somehow things aren’t meshing. 

Little things creep in, and suddenly a good day transforms into unwelcome drama that drags you all down.

Is there any way to navigate the day which allows you all to thrive and enjoy each other?

The answer is yes, but it involves understanding how these family dramas get built out of simple emotional moments that most of us have been taught to mishandle.

How Can We Find Our Way Back?

The place to start is to identify when these moments are happening. Then we need to know what to do. 

In this gentle, easy, prerecorded course, you’ll learn:

  • how to use your basic human nature to assess what is going on
  • how to create a kind relationship with your own anxiety and negative tendencies
  • how to flow with with less effort in your family’s changing, dynamics

We promise: we won’t tell you rules you cannot keep, or demand you speak to each other with scripts you cannot remember. Instead, we’ll help you connect with your genuine heart so you can celebrate again — together.

Our Method is Well Tested

This workshop uses the approach presented in The Five Keys to Mindful Communication by retired Marriage and Family Therapist and senior Buddhist teacher Susan Gillis Chapman. Chapman developed this unique material by combining traditional wisdom teachings from Tibet and India with a modern Western psychological orientation.

This deep-but-simple approach allows you to more quickly and easily manage heightened emotions. It can also offer you a foundation of calm which can lead to more truthful, compassionate, and flexible relationships.

    This easy recorded course is particularly important for families who:

    ✅ feel stuck in uncomfortable patterns

    ✅ don’t know how to talk to each other

    ✅ end up silent and shut down

    ✅ want to rediscover their love for each other

    ✅ wish there was a way to feel close again

    ✅ want to get through the day with less drama

    ✅ are managing different styles & personalities

    ✅ want all members to thrive and be happy

    Length of Course

    This pre-recorded course will take less than 3hrs total — at your own pace — over a number of lessons which are 5-15min each. Our aim is that this course should be workable in the midst of your normal, everyday life without much extra effort or stress.

    “Excellent. 5 out of 5 stars. The information was presented in an easy to understand manner.”

    Understanding the Relationship Traffic Light

    • Imagine knowing exactly when to let something go and when to keep talking it through.

    • Imagine feeling confident making healthy and strong rules and boundaries.

    • Imagine creating the trust for everyone to be honest with each other.

    The Three Lights is a fundamental model for relationships that is complex enough for life’s most complicated situations but easy enough that kids can use it. 

    Learning how to read a situation properly — including reading our own mind and emotions — allows us to know how to navigate complicated and changing dynamics.

    Trying to work with your teenager’s moods? Your spouse’s stress? You own loss of heart? Your aging parents’ anxieties?

    This simple, practical and yet profound model can help you on any day, in any situation.
