We all know that having healthy, happy, relationships is an essential part of living a fulfilling life.
Whether with an intimate partner, a professional colleague, a treasured friend or family member… positive, life affirming relationships are the foundation from which we can create beautiful, meaningful, rich and inspired lives.
Positive, committed relationships build us up and feed us the confidence, strength, and courage we’ll need to realize our potentials and make our greatest contributions.
They provide a soft place for us to land — a kind, compassion field of connection that inspires us to be resilient and brave in the face of life’s normal obstacles, setbacks and delays.
Yet you and I both know that all too often, the setbacks we experience are our relationships themselves!
Rather than cushioning us against the blows of life, they often weigh us down instead.
Sometimes this negativity is covert and subtle in ways that make it hard to overcome.
It shows up like the repeat of painful, disappointing dynamics.
Someone always leaves, no matter how hard you’ve tried or how much you’ve given.
Or you always seem to find those who need rescuing and end up feeling drained rather than inspired by the connection.
Or you somehow wind up with people who always need to be the center of attention and who suck all of the oxygen out the room, leaving you invisible yet again.
Like a vortex or tidal wave, you somehow find yourself pulled back into the same old painful dynamics of your past.
Over and over again against your will. In spite of all of your years of analyzing the why of it, diligently chipping away at the tenacity of this story, trying to get to the bottom of it in order to heal it once and for all.
As much as you yearn for healthier connections and more support, it may seem easier to simply lower your expectations and just go it alone in life.
Yet the good news is, you have more power than you know to cultivate positive, conscious connections that are a complete departure from this well worn dynamic!
You have the power to graduate forever from these disappointing patterns and discover how you can create rich, fulfilling, nourishing, happy, healthy, loving connections!
It’s not that you haven’t been working hard enough.
Yet it may be that you haven’t known how to work most effectively to ensure that your relationships grow healthy, happy and strong.
Such that your relational field becomes a solid foundation for you to launch your creativity and brilliance into the world.
And create the kind of relational field that offers you the deep happiness and well being you yearn for.
If you’ve been unable to create this before now, it’s not your fault.
Yet it is yours to now evolve.
There are core skills you’ve not yet learned that once you know them, will support you to graduate from old painful patterns and allow your relationships to flourish and thrive.
Some of these skills are:
The development of a solid sense of self.
The ability to recognize when you are projecting the hurts of your past onto your present.
Or when others are doing that to you.
The capacity to step outside of that story to generate a different experience. One of mutual satisfaction, authentic care, freedom and love.
When you have a solid sense of self and your energy is anchored from within, you’re connected to, and generating your relationships from, the truth of your value and worthiness.
You are open to feedback without getting defensive, because ultimately you’re able to make empowered meaning of whatever comes your way. You love and trust yourself and therefore no longer give your power away to others to determine your value.
You absolutely can become the ultimate authority of your own emotional experience within every relationship…
Before you know it, it will become second-nature to you to create a dynamic where you’re awake to your worthiness to be respected and valued no matter what others are doing or not doing, and helping others to wake up out of the trance of their own projections — simply by not buying into the other person’s story, and by not taking it personally…
During this 3-day online retreat with Katherine, you’ll:
On our opening day, we will help you see clearly, your automatic projections — what you’re assuming is true, the impact these beliefs have on how you show up with others and how these assumptions are setting others up to disappoint you again and again…
If you look at all the habitual toxic relational dynamics that you struggle with — perhaps codependence, co-narcissism, idealizing others or devaluing them… they all trace back to ways you’re giving away your own power in response to what you automatically assume others feel about you (others don’t like me, or others dont’ want what I have to offer), or how you assume that they’ll behave ( others always leave or others don’t choose me.)
When your relationships with others are impaired because you’re bringing the past into the present and projecting these erroneous assumptions that are based on past relational trauma into your future — then what’s possible between yourself and others becomes very limited.
You’re being triggered by things that aren’t actually happening in present time. Yet through the lens of your old interpretations, you’ll automatically respond in ways that bait others to show up to validate that perspective.
Rewounding you over and over and over again, and solidifying the worldview of your old story.
It feels like it’s just happening to you.
Yet it’s actually happening again through you, though outside of your conscious awareness.
Katherine will guide you to finally wake up out of that trance so that you can finally generate happier, healthier dynamics between yourself and others!
She will help you to become conscious of the automatic nature of these projections and how they are influencing you to defend and protect yourself — and even create strategies for safety that are actually imprisoning you and causing you to repeat painful dynamics from the past over and over again.
Yet once you awaken to yourself as a source of these stories, and are able to pinpoint the false meaning you’ve been inside of and operating from — you can course correct these beliefs at the very foundation of your consciousness… and begin to generate your relationship from what’s actually true.
That you have the power to root down love and learn how you can create greater happiness and co-creativity in your connections with others.
That others actually like and even love you, and would be grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate that, if only you’d have the courage to let them in.
That others will value and respect you to the extent that you value and respect yourself.
That many others would be delighted to support your dreams if you gave them the chance to do so.
In this opening session, you’ll:
This pivotal second day will deepen your ability to create empowered relationships with others by becoming aware of their projections onto you, and deepen your ability to navigate it in an elegant and masterful way.
Because as you’ve been projecting your false beliefs onto other people, people are also projecting their false beliefs onto you.
You can almost feel it in the field between you.
The weight of their mistrust, as though they’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Of their covert superiority which you can hear in their tone of voice, yet which are the opposite of the words that are coming out of their mouths.
The walls they put up before they’ve even given you a chance.
Katherine will teach you to hold your own in these moments. So that you are immune to becoming swept up in the lies of someone’s unhealed past.
She will show you how to avoid the strong pull to become a player in other people’s false narratives, and help you to generate your relationships from a place of dignity, truth and sovereignty.
So that you don’t take it personally when others are projecting their old sad stories onto you.
Or unconsciously setting you up to play out their unresolved painful past.
Or worse yet, projecting their own disowned shadow onto you.
That instead, you have the power to step outside of these toxic narratives, and respond to what’s happening between you in ways that are true to who you are, and to who you are becoming.
As well as in ways that elevate what’s possible between you, and generative of healing, wholeness and well being.
Where you become a leader of love in your connection.
And a creator of greater happiness and health between you.
In this session, you’ll:
On our final day of this retreat, you’ll be given the blueprint for how to create happy, healthy relationships that can flourish over time.
We are living in a time of profound relational transformation, and the rules that once provided us with a sense of safety in love, no longer apply.
As we are constantly updating our technology, our diets, and our child rearing practices, so too do we need to continually uplevel and grow our capacities to love and be loved in order to realize the possibilities now seeking to emerge between us.
No longer is it sufficient to simply know your issues.
You now have to know how to evolve beyond them in order to create great relationships.
No longer is it enough to simply know what you want in your relationships.
You now have to know how to generate the fertile conditions that will allow all involved to feel well, balanced and whole in the connection between you.
As the world around us is experiencing massive breakdowns, Life is requiring us to cultivate a stronger, healthier field of relatedness between us. It’s the movement towards unity consciousness and it will not simply descend upon us.
It is something we must consciously evolve and give ourselves to.
In this pivotal session, you’ll learn how to generate a clear field to experience co-creativity, harmony, unity and freedom between yourself and others.
In this closing session, you’ll:
In this 3-day transformational retreat, Katherine Woodward Thomas will guide you step-by-step, showing you exactly how to consciously relate to others — your partner, colleagues, friends, and family — from your Sovereign Self…
You’ll leave projections and old stories behind as you separate yourself from your triggers — and release covert, unhealthy dynamics.
