Project: Lessons from the Collective We-Space to help Intimate Couples become 2nd tier explorers
Who’s in the room matters when a group of seekers is attempting to open up into a collective experience many evolutionary thinkers have found. This we-space becomes much more challenging for an intimate couple than it is for non-lovers for many reasons. For example, each person in an intimate partnership is very familiar with partner behavior originating from lower centers of gravity. These inconsistencies frequently erode feelings of trust if not viewed from a developmental perspective. Furthermore, the capacity to compartmentalize less than perfect experiences, an established rhythm between connection and separation, tolerance for exposure, transparency, and more, are all necessary to creating stable intimate 2nd tier intimate we-space. This presentation will translate the lessons learned from the collective experience into specific recommendations for the intimate couple with an emphasis upon integral community members who find themselves in 1st tier relationships.
