Couple’s Relationship & Communication:

A Mindfulness Workshop

“Life is a moment away from ending and we ought to live it fully, or we will miss out.” Manijeh Motaghy

Sunday, May 26 – 10am to 1pm


Couple’s Relationship and Communication is a Mindfulness Workshop. We are learning machines and capable of teaching as well. We can actually teach someone else how to behave by modelling, by creating a loop that provides positive harmonious and joyous feedback. Doing that needs skills and you can learn these skills.

It’s important to note, Relationships and Communication are not separate. It is an art or technology, a language that can be perfected. Like any other skill it needs to be practiced with the right tools. Having the right tools is one thing, using those tools effectively is another. Also, there are conditions and obstacles in the way of loving, caring and effective communication, that need to be recognized and released. These conditions could be environmental, physical, emotional or mental. They maybe hidden in one’s psyche from the past or be the effect of each present moment experience. They maybe habitual ways of thinking, feeling or behaving. Fortunately, you are not stuck with poisonous unmotivated ways of relating to one another. With compassionate, knowledgeable and competent guide these obstacles can be revealed and removed.

Receive guidance on how to become more and more skilful and satisfied in your relationships. In ways that impact and uplift every area of your life. What’s important is that life is a moment away from ending and we ought to live it fully, or we will miss out.
