RELATE TO OTHERS FROM
YOUR DEEPEST TRUTH
The arena of close relationships is often where we struggle most in life. We need a new paradigm, a coherent design for living, a value set that brings clarity to the ways we relate, coupled with modes of compassionate communication that help us understand each other.
This groundbreaking workshop draws on key teachings of the original Tantrik tradition that provide the clarity so needed in this area of life. We will explore in detail how the core Tantrik values of autonomy, radical authenticity, openness, self-empowerment, and intimacy with reality play out in relationships of all kinds- platonic, friends, family, work colleges, as well as romantic relationships
How can you be 100% true to yourself and still get your needs met? How can you fully respect the principle of consent while exercising your full autonomy?
How can we honour each person's experience while simultaneously not getting caught in their mind-games? And how can we acknowledge the truth of oneness without falling into the trap of spiritual bypassing?
All these questions and more will be explored in depth, and you will receive Hareesh's unpublished "10 Principles of Awakened Relating".
