United We Stand, Divided We Fall
In this age of individualism we have fallen away from deep personal relationships with each other. Casual, superficial connections abound, being facilitated and driven by various forms of electronic media. But something vital goes missing when depth is ignored: how to simply and truly be with another human being in ways that support openness, honesty, vulnerability, and freedom to change.
The first step to reclaim this capacity is to deepen the relationship with yourself, facing the multifaceted nature of your own psyche, with all its puzzling and tangled inner relationships. By affirming your worth and offering all parts of yourself compassion and unconditional positive regard (attention, acceptance, appreciation, affection, and allowing), something remarkable begins to happen. Defenses become visible, knots loosened, formative memories recalled, and present moment awareness strengthened. Welcome to a path toward reintegration and wholeness, or, if you will, transcendence.
It just so happens that this practice is best done in shared company with another trusted person who is interested in doing the same. In this way you practice being with yourself while your friend practices being with you and vice versa when roles are switched In essence you and your partner (or your group) learn how to simply and truly be with each other in ways that support openness, honesty, vulnerability, and willingness to change. Find out more about this process and how to adopt it in Books/Resources.
