Is this you?

You have been learning and practicing communication skills and managing reactivity with compassion for yourself and your partner. You are ready to take these skills to the next level and approach previously difficult dialogues in a whole new way.

You understand that habits like defending, blaming, convincing, and trying to prove you’re right don’t serve your relationship, or help to meet needs for anyone.

You also know that you don’t want to give in to old relationship dynamics with your partner or with your family of origin. You get that this means setting life serving boundaries and standing up for what is truly supportive to you and others.

With the ability to set boundaries and negotiate in honor of all needs present, you feel confident that you can learn the skills to create a thriving life and access resiliency in the face of difficulty.

What is it all about?

Mindful Compassionate Dialogue: An At-Home Course for Couples is a comprehensive course that couples can access online and complete at home on their own schedule. The entire course is is 28 weeks long and organized around 12 Relationship competencies:

1. Appreciation 7.  Needs Based Negotiation
2. Empathy 8. Life Serving Boundaries
3. Honest Expression 9. Thriving & Resiliency
4. Self Empathy 10. Relationship Repair
5. Recognizing Reactivity
11. Emotional Security
6. Managing Reactivity
12. Healthy Differentiation

Each competency is defined and practiced through six skills that make up that competency. Each skill is defined in specific and doable terms so that you can be clear about whether you are using it or not. For each skill you will engage in a short exercise to help you understand and practice that skill. 

Part 3 focuses on the third set of three competencies: Needs Based Negotiation, Life Serving Boundaries, and Thriving & Resiliency. 

Each competency requires a subtle level of self-awareness and attunement to others, as well as specific skills practice. Read more about the third three competencies.

"Getting deeper into the content shines the light on more habits and conditioning to surface which is challenging and also promotes learning, growth and development."

"It was a helpful reminder of the benefit, for my well-being and for the well-being of our partnership, of being in touch with and savoring gratitude."

"Was helpful to take stock of the "aha" moments during the course and connect some dots of how this course helped build on other skills or knowledge I already had."
