|The Living Peace Retreat|
Pathways for Transforming Difficult Relationships at Work and Home
(from Kathy Simon, Living Peace Lead Facilitator)
For most of us, our most painful and challenging relationships are with people close to us -- our partners, children, family-of-origin, work colleagues, neighbors -- even with ourselves. If you have a relationship in your life you'd like to improve, please consider joining me at the Living Peace Retreat.
At this year's retreat, we'll be focusing on everything to do with making our relationships of all kinds more peaceful, authentic, and joyful. As part of this exploration, we'll be digging into some of these challenges, which I hear frequently from participants:
- "How do I improve a relationship if the other person does not seem interested or available?"
- "I love my partner but we are so different!"
- "How can I possibly transform a relationship where the other person is in a power position?"
- "I don't always like how I act: I want to learn to be less reactive."
- "I'm struggling inside!"
