Relational Mindfulness—A Path to Intimacy and Reducing Barriers to Love


Robert Fisher & Dyrian Benz


This workshop is designed for couples and the therapists, coaches, and healers who work with them. Short talks on key couples’ issues culled from thousands of hours of couples’ therapy will be followed by experiential exercises designed to help heal these areas and move couples from contraction to expansion, from alienation to closeness. The concepts and exercises will be immediately useful to couples themselves, as well as applicable to a therapeutic setting. We will use mindfulness, art, movement, interac- tion, and present-moment experience in the body to uncover the issues deeper than simple communication often permits, and begin to


transform key issues that keep you from your partner and yourself.


During the workshop you can learn how to:


• Develop compassion for yourself and your partner


• Find your relationship’s strengths and resources


• Apply mindfulness to couples dynamics


• Discover the hurts and beliefs that shape our present experience


• Clarify and change limiting, repetitive systemic patterns of interaction


• Develop clear and compassionate boundaries • Explore sex with kindness and mindfulness • Deal with your partner’s anger and complaints • Communicate without hurt and blame

Dream Action and Dream Meanings: Ericksonian Hypnosis Seminars


Eric Greenleaf


Jung said that “Dreams are the reality of the psy- che,” and Freud called dreams “The royal road to the unconscious.” Their emphasis was on the interpretation and amplification of the mean- ings of dreams. Yet, throughout the world, before and outside of western psychiatry, dreams are seen as sources of guidance in action. They are seen as prophetic or as a set of spiritual instructions to be ceremonially enacted in social groups, healing ceremonies, and individual quests.


Milton H. Erickson saw the unconscious not as a one-way flow of information, passing through the translation booth of the analyst. Rather, he
