Re-PairingDisappointments, arguments, and fights, feeling misunderstood and distant from one another, getting or giving the “silent treatment” – even long-practicing Buddhists can find these dynamics woven into interactions with even the family and friends we love and care for the most.

Embracing the humility and freedom of beginner’s mind, we will discuss specific concepts of Buddhist psychology that can help us break through the impasses often experienced in emotionally-close relationships.

We can learn to benefit from the inevitable challenges of intimacy rather than fear or avoid them, finding meaningful ways to “re-pair” and connect deeply again with our significant others, all while finding a greater understanding of Self/Non-Self and Other/Non-Other and deepening our wisdom and compassion.

“Re-pairing” represents my 30+ years of experience working with couples and my interest in Buddhist psychology. Buddhists, pre-Buddhists, therapists and non-ist people are all welcome.
