Mindful Relationships: Touching joy and letting go with Acharya Susan Chapman

As humans we are wired for close relationship, yet many feel isolated and alone, even in a committed partnership. With awareness, intimacy can begin to loosen the patterns of fear and doubt that keep us from receiving the love and connection we yearn for most.

Using meditation and other mindfulness practices this program explores the difference between 'red light' (closed) and 'green light' (open) patterns of intimacy, based on the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Drawing from her book, The Five Keys To Mindful Communication, author and marital therapist Susan Chapman provides practical instructions for shifting common relationship narratives of abandonment and power-struggle into the melody and dance of deep intimacy.

Whether you are single or in relationship, Mindful Relationships can provide a path to deeper, more fulfilling connection with others and the world.
