    Dyadic Council
    Emotional Intimacy in Relationships

    With Eran and Nurit

    The most valuable asset each person has is their relationships. The depth of our relationships with others, and with ourselves fundamentally depends on our patterns of listening and speaking. In this workshop you will learn effective and heart-full communication patterns that can be applied in daily life. The uniqueness of this approach lies in the creation of a sacred space that enables us to transform interpersonal communication.

    The practice of Dyadic Council as pioneered by Jack Zimmerman and Jaquelyn McCandless led to the awakening of Third Consciousness, the presence and voice of the relationship itself. Identifying and nurturing the presence of Third Consciousness has become an integral teaching for couples who wish to deepen their intimate connection so that their relationship takes on the fullness of a spiritual path. The deeper truth that arises in Dyadic Council fosters the development of skills to create mutually supportive, emotionally rewarding connections between partners. Being willing to be vulnerable keeps relationships alive, keeps couples growing together and deepens love and intimacy.
