Clarify what you want so you can design aligned relationships
Someone's beauty and purpose lights you up. You are attracted and you sense it may be mutual. How do you create the clarity, focus, and spaciousness to explore aligned relationship?
We live in a society with many assumptions about what partnership should look like. These social constructs around marriage and monogamy were designed for a power system that viewed a wife as the property of her husband. They were designed to build and pass along wealth and control for a specific elite group to maintain white supremacy, monogamy, heterosexism, capitalism.
How do we interrupt these constructs and the oppression they perpetuate to create aligned relationships based in love and mutual respect? How do we get creative and clarify what's most important together?
Come join this group coaching session for people seeking a new partnership or to strengthen existing partnership(s). Whether you are monogamous or poly you are welcome. This workshop is part of a series of workshops to support you in creating aligned relationships.
This session will not be recorded. Join from a computer where you have steady wifi and the ability to engage a google doc.
