An End to Arguing
Sui Yoga Center
January 27, 2023
SoHo Manhattan, New York City
We are drawn to others not because of our similarities, but because of our differences. They provide the means for growth and development. Differences are inevitable in relationships; conflict is optional. Differences become conflict when there is a power struggle to convert the other person to our way of seeing or doing things. While it is natural to want to have things go in accordance with our preferences and desires, getting caught in the grip of these impulses can lead to the destruction of a relationship. The most important factor in the development of healthy and fulfilling relationships is the ability to manage differences skillfully. Because most of us have seen few examples of effective conflict management, it’s likely that we are inexperienced in this arena.
Through interactive exercises, group processes, lectures, and dialogue, this workshop will provide the means through which the skills of “conscious combat” can be learned, practiced, and integrated into our relationships. These skills apply not only to romantic partnerships but to our families, friendships, work, and community relationships as well.
The Secrets of Great Relationships
The Well Being Retreat Center
June 9 – 11, 2023
Having a great relationship means more than just staying together. Unless we enjoy trust, intimacy, caring, and love with our partner, we are sharing an arrangement and not a true partnership. We seek relationships hoping to bring greater fulfillment and meaning into our lives yet for many couples the dreams of infatuation soon dissolve into the disappointment of a cold and joyless relationship or end in divorce.
The biggest mistake that many people make is not in expecting too much from their relationships, but in desiring too little. A true partnership can not only provide security, pleasure, intimacy, and fun but can be a means through which our deepest longings are awakened and ultimately realized. It can be a vehicle not only for our own transformation but that of the world as well.
In this workshop, we will examine the unique qualities that exceptional relationships embody and identify various means through which it is possible to develop and integrate those qualities and experiences into our relationship. In addition, we will identify and engage in practices that can transform the quality of connection in ways that promote co-creativity, unconditional acceptance, and spiritual awakening.
African adventure in Kenya & Tanzania!

Our itinerary will include:
Game-viewing drives through the Masai Mara National Reserve, The Serengeti National Park, the Tarangire National Park,
• A home visit and meal sharing with a family in the Mto Wa Mbu Village,
• A visit to the Masai Mara Reserve, the Serengeti National Park, meetings with the Hadzabe and Datoga peoples,

There will also be opportunities for pre-and post-trip adventures to Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda, to the Murchison Falls in Uganda, and to other locations.
From Conflict to Connection
Online Course through HeartWise
All couples have their moments when differences arise that can unsettle even the most loving partnerships and threaten the foundation of those relationships that are unstable, to begin with. Research has shown that it is not necessarily the depth of love shared by two people that is the most influential factor in determining the strength and lasting power of a relationship, but rather the ability of both partners to manage the inevitable differences that are present in varying degrees in all relationships. And yet, most of us enter into relationships with an inadequate understanding of exactly what it requires to become skilled in the art and science (and yes, it is both!) of conflict resolution. If you are serious about enhancing your level of effectiveness, particularly in regard to your closest relationships, this course is for you!
In it you will:
*Learn the key elements of effective conflict management
*Identify your growing edge in regard to the strengths within you that may be in need of more attention, and how you can fortify them
*Learn how to recognize the warning signs that are alerting you that you and your partner are about to fall into one of those “here we go again” moments, and put in a course correction.
And much more!

Love, Sex and Intimacy
Online Course through HMI
Intimacy is to the Soul as Food is to the Body
It nourishes and enriches us at the core of our being through the experience of deep connection. When the need for intimacy is fulfilled, we experience wholeness and sufficiency. We feel at one with ourselves and the world. In conjunction with a sexual connection, intimacy can be exhilarating, inspiring, even transcendent. The shadow side of intimacy involves the fear of loss, rejection, or shame. While these fears are common to some degree to most of us, they need not prevent us from experiencing the joys of intimate contact.
In this workshop, you will explore and learn:
- Intimacy Deficiency Disorder
- Rating your Emotional Intimacy
- Rating your Sexual Satisfaction
- Intentional Intimacy
- Enlightened Self-Interest
- 5 Varieties of Sex
