Description

Unconditional Connection: Flowing Through the Four Seasons of Relationship will address some of our fundamental human anxieties — the fear of discord, misunderstanding and disconnection — and aims to unlock them.

Even when we’re ‘well trained’ in profound teachings on impermanence, the mindfulness of our emotions, etc, we also must be honest. 

Many struggle when we’re hit by waves of unexpected disconnection in our close relationships. 

Whether it’s a friendship, a love relationship, a family relationship or even a work relationship — when someone responds in an unexpected way, we can suddenly explode with anxiety and even reactivity. 

Maybe our close person seems harsh, uncaring, putting us down, is clinging or manipulative, or starts playing power games… 

Here, too often, our reactions take over and we find ourselves in the painful situation of being jarringly disconnected from ourselves — even just for a few hours. 

Why we can’t we break out of this pattern and actually be at peace?

For many of us, it is because we aren’t attuned with the actual relationship, and struggle with falling into unconscious patterns which keep us from being our natural selves in our relationships.

Reactions from the past infect the present. Projected fears of the future distract us from what is happening now. And the situation breaks down further.

Worse still, the increasing disconnection can lead us to feeling even more alarmed, agitated and demoralized.

How do we recover from this loss of heart?

Finding our way back to the goodness of the relationships requires us to BE in a new way. We have to let go of what isn’t working. We have to embrace and identify with the profound teachings of what relationship actually is.

And we need to hold ourselves in a kinder, more powerful way than most of us do.

Finding Our Way Back Home

The best news is that this new way feels nurturing, wholesome, lively and wise. It’s even got a sense of humor!

Don’t keep struggling needlessly. Join this powerful journey back home to who you are… And learn to love those around you at a deeper level (while also sometimes keeping more distance from them!).

The Four Seasons of Relationship

Using a simple metaphor of the four seasons of the year, Executive Director and Senior Teacher Greg Heffron will take us through short talks, interactive exercises in each 90min session. These will offer us methods and models for how to navigate the world inside our bodies, hearts and minds — which will then allow us to travel peacefully and joyfully through the sometimes rugged terrain of our relationships.

Note from Greg: for those with background in the Green Light approach, including Leaders, Teachers and other advanced students, this will not just be rehashing material you already know, but delving beyond, based on my own insights from going deep with The Four Seasons of Relationship since I first learned about them 14 years ago.
