Exploring Conscious Relationship

We are always in relationship; with ourselves, our belief systems, our emotional state, our thoughts, with others, maybe with a partner, with our culture, with our environment, our community and our planet. We define who we are by the relationships we have.


‘Being in Relationship’ is a statement of fact.


When we are children, we create the reality that we live from, based on how we interact and develop relationship with those that care (or don’t care) for us.


What if there was an easier way to be in relationship in your life? What would that look and feel like?


This blog explores the ways we can become consciously present and aware to our experience of being in relationship.

Have you experienced a moment of sitting with a loved one as they express their emotional pain, listening with all your being; at the same time aware you are feeling completely alive and somewhat expanded in your body? I believe this to be the experience of bringing Pr...

We were lying in bed about to go to sleep and Alistair turns to me and says: I think we need a chat. In the course of our five years together I have hardly heard him say these words. Perhaps it is because we make a point of having a 'check-in' most days, where we share...

Language can be applied to our experience to support our capacity to be present.

In modern psychology there is a popular idea that one should welcome and embrace our feelings. In my experience, holding an idea that I should welcome and embrace my feelings can feel like...

In recent years I have found the people I work with are asking and looking for more than the basics of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as a way to connect and express themselves with their loved ones and peers.

It's sometimes described to me as "a sense of something is...

Nearly two years ago Alistair invited me to join his first Focusing Level 1 Online Training.  One night a week we quietly and slowly progressed through the course over five weeks. At first I struggled with the slow quiet nature of this modality. The way it invited me t...

It can be confusing when others don't behave as we expect them to. Whether it's an intimate partner, a child, a parent, or a work colleague.

To be honest, I didn't understand my own behaviour in relation to my intimate partner. For years I thought I was offering under...

I’m feeling totally blessed to be able to listen to my partner share what she believes to be the the most significant fear she has experienced in her relationships with men. She did that recently.

And it’s not what I imagined. I imagined it might be aggression or physic...

Is your intimate relationship all you want it to be?

Do you cherish your partner and know that you are loved deeply?

Are you enjoying yourself?

I care deeply about my own intimate relationship and I care about others in their relationships, because I know first-hand the...

Are you aware that there is more than just you and your partner in relationship?

I did a little stocktaking and I can only conclude that most people are polyamorous without realizing it 

First there is who you really are…

Then there is who you think you are…

Then there is...

I share my answer to this question from my own experience. For me…

It’s a realization more than something you do.

It’s easy to forget, to overlook, to by-pass.

But it’s impact is profound.

It’s so simple… and yet depending where you are in your consciousness it may be diff...
