I believe relationships are the most difficult and challenging endeavor we undertake on our

                                                        journey of life, and an intimate relationship is the single most important factor in our emotional

                                                        health and well-being.  We are relational by nature and built for connection and we crave to

                                                        make a meaning of our experiences.


In other words, when our relationships don’t work, we hurt!  I imagine that you would not be looking at my website right now unless you had some desire for some changes in your relationships.


Your relationship with your own self is the most important relationship you will ever have in your lifetime, but how we come to a place of symbiosis with our self is where so many people get stuck.  Interestingly, it is in our relationships with other people that we learn the most about ourselves, and it is safe to say that each person we meet gives us opportunities for growth and learning.  Our relationships act as mirrors, reflecting back to us what we must see, many

times something we don’t want to see.  If you want to change in your relationship,

behave differently.  By changing your behavior, you can make your relationship

extraordinary and your changes will have a ripple effect on all your relationships.

You can’t expect to see change if you never do anything differently. Consequently

your desire for changing others will diminish!


Often when we think of being in a relationship, we think of romantic love, but in truth,

anybody we spend time with brings us into relationship with that person. In our

day-to-day life we may find ourselves in relationships with friends, neighbors,

co-workers, children, family members.


Have you ever asked yourself the question -

How is it to be in a relationship with me? How is it to live with me?




“It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work,

and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”

"When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it…" - Rumi
