What is love: how to understand and practice close relationships?
Did you know that falling in love takes one-fifth of a second or that sexual desire is more than just a basic thrive? That kissing has an immense impact on the quality of a love bond? That facial similarity between lovers increases over time? Or that it’s the little things that make the biggest difference and that simple acts of kindness are appreciated the most?
This workshop is directed at anyone interested in the subject of love bonding through the lens of process-oriented psychology. The workshop introduces basic techniques of how to understand and communicate love: 1. Crossing the edge, a method, which refers to the experience of a limit to what we can say or do/feel, while remaining comfortable with who we know ourselves to be, 2. Bodily signals, a method, which works with the attention to signals in the body that are different (incongruent) with our conscious thinking, 3. Dreaming process, a method which seeks integration of conscious and subconscious desires, and creates opportunities for a conscious awareness of integrating both as a purposeful direction of a psychic transformation.
