"Dating for the Passionate Protagonist"

Is this you?

You know yourself to be passionately dedicated to living from a sense of purpose and meaning. You have spent your adult life cultivating the knowledge and skills that allow you to serve life and thrive. You have friends, co-workers, and colleagues who admire you and trust your integrity and care.

And you know you want to share your life with an intimate partner who brings mutual love, care, and respect, yet you don’t feel confident about dating. You’re not sure if you can discern who would be a fit for partnership with you. You feel apprehensive about losing your center and getting caught in old patterns. 

You would like to learn and practice the consciousness and skills of Mindful Compassionate Dialogue in the context of dating.

How it Works 

For each class we will begin with five minutes of guided meditation. I will present a particular concept and skill. Then you will practice the skill in a short structured exercise. You will hear questions and comments from previous participants both clarifying the material and debriefing exercises.

You will follow along with the video and your handout. Some exercises you can do on your own and some are best done with another person.

As you take the course you can ask questions via email: info@wiseheartpdx.org

While you are taking the course, you can also book a discounted session with an MCD Companion for one-on-one live support.

Thank you so much for your participation and dedicating your time and energy to this important work.

About Mindful Compassionate Dialogue

Mindful Compassionate Dialogue (MCD) naturally supports you in creating the relationships you want by integrating the wisdom and skills of three powerful modalities: Hakomi, Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and mindfulness.

Each modality contributes something unique to the process. Hakomi offers clarity about reactivity and healing. NVC provides a method for achieving self-responsibility, skillful communication, and agency. And mindfulness adds the stable attention and clear focus needed to continuously refine your understanding and skills.

MCD is a system meant to provide access to agency, compassion, mindfulness, and wisdom. Personal transformation is achieved through practice with the12 Relationship Competencies and Nine Foundations, which arise from a central, life-serving intention.
