Richard’s interest in the transformative power of relationship was first ignited while he lived in Tamera in Portugal, a community that has been exploring these questions for over 40 years. He has since been living and working at a mystery school in New Zealand for the past 3 years, working across a range of different topics, but always returning to the subject of love and relationship. Richard is passionate about helping people find deeper connection and take greater responsibility for their own emotions and triggers.
RELATIONSHIP AS A SPIRITUAL PATHAn invitation into a new paradigm approach to relationship where the relationship, instead of being seen as an endpoint, is instead realised as a vehicle for deep personal transformation. This workshop is not for the faint hearted. As Ram Das said – “A relationship that is dedicated to truth is treading the fine line between cosmos and chaos. It never gets smooth. It’s always alive and dynamic – very scary business”.Choosing to approach relationship as a spiritual path is a conscious decision to choose to come face to face with our shadows as they inevitably emerge.This is a path of self responsibility. This workshop is for those with a deep knowing that relationship holds a key to a life we know is possible, even if we haven’t seen the map of how to get there. We do not offer that map, just the invitation to embark on the enquiry together.Participants will be guided on a journey through their own relational beliefs and experiences. The workshop will be held in a circle where participants will be invited to explore with each other topics including their relationships with their contra sexual parent, relational patterns and tendencies, inherited beliefs, the drama triangle and where they may sit in it, the core abandonment wound, as well as setting intentions for new ways of relating. Participants will be invited to share revelatory discoveries with the group throughout the workshop in the understanding that the patterns play out in each of us in different ways.
