Dr. Gail Brenner talks with us about shifting from blaming our partners to a more powerful context, one in which we take responsibility for our own urges and feelings that come up in the context of relationship. We talk about: What is the power of pausing and being curious about what is coming up inside before taking the action of speaking to the other, and how do we do that? How does this help in terms of harmonizing relationships and using relationship as a mirror and vehicle for freedom from the habits and patterns that limit us? And how does this manifest outside our relationships? How does it help when we investigate these needs and feelings first, before putting them out into the relationship? How do we make friends with our fears?
Dr. Brenner is a psychologist with 17 years of experience offering psychotherapy and an avid blogger for aflourishinglife.com. In addition to writing, she meets with people individually and in groups to support them in gaining the insights they need to release mental and emotional patterns that distract from happiness, inner peace, and full creative expression.
