About the event

"The quality of your life ultimately depends on the quality of your relationships." Esther Perel

This online course is for you if you'd like to: 

  • develop skills for building healthy relationships (with yourself and others), 
  • develop awareness of why and how you communicate, what your triggers are, 
  • understand how to ask for what you want and what stops you from doing that,
  • explore what boundaries mean for you,
  • practice saying and hearing "no",
  • experiment with repairing after ruptures in relationships, 
  • practice alternative ways to engage in communication and connection with those you are in relationship with.

Why participate in these three workshops?

This course is borne out of our belief that having healthy relationships is a skill set - and one that we all can learn. These workshops will look at skills across all kinds of relationships - intimate partnerships, friendships, work relationships...

This course is for those who want to invest in their relationships, before, during and after fault lines and conflicts happen.

Some topics we explore:

- Learn what empathy is and what it is not; 

- Practice accessing self-empathy when you’re triggered; 

- Explore how empathy can transform even the most challenging moments in relationships;

- Experiment with making bold requests of others and ourselves; 

- Explore the differences between requests, demands and threats; 

- Notice what happens when your requests are met with a “no”.

- Identify forms of rupture and how this experience plays out in your nervous system; 

- Learn why repair is such an important practice in healthy relationships; 

- Explore what stands in the way of making repairs; 

- Practise how to come back from relational ruptures stronger; 

- Learn the elements of repair that serve relationships (and those that don’t).

We meet weekly on Zoom for two hours (7:00-9:00 NZST), for 8 weeks, starting on October 15th.
