Upcoming Workshops

Dave MacQuarrie presents: coming together: unpacking the problem of conflict

Saturday, September 21 2019 and Sunday, September 22 2019

Relationships, sometimes wonderful, frequently disastrous. All of us want to have great relationships but few succeed. What does it require?

Have you been told that you just need to communicate? Did it help? The major difficulty in relationship is not communication —- it is cooperation. When we learn to cooperate, then communication becomes important.

Modern life imposes many needs onto relationship, needs that show up in conflict. This workshop is primarily focused on the needs of couples in present relationships and those struggling with past relationship. It is also applicable to any individual wrestling with contentious issues.

Through a variety of metaphors and skills, Dave will suggest tools that allow us to create successful outcomes. A weekend to explore how you can be more effective.

About Group Process – This is an ongoing group who’s primary focus is to explore how we can bring ourselves more fully into relationships. This group operates on the premise that awareness of self and others is fundamental to the development of healthy interpersonal interactions. Within a group framework we can gain tremendous insight into ourselves, our interpersonal style and its impact on others. We can enhance our understanding of what drives us and what holds us back in relationships. We can let go of unhealthy patterns of relationship and of things, such as judgment and shame, which can keep us from engaging in a healthy, connected way. We can safely explore ways to communicate openly and honestly, to manage interpersonal boundaries, and to understand our own personal power.

We can learn to be fully present in relationships as we lay the foundation to authentically interact with others.

We require a minimum of 3 months commitment but encourage clients to participate in the groups 9 month duration to make the most of this experience.
