„When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.” ― Martin Buber
Relationships have grown more and more challenging over the past several decades. Rapid changes in culture, religion, and psychology have created an entirely new landscape which has brought great challenges for intimate partnerships. Dr. Thompson will explore some of the reasons behind the great difficulties so many of us encounter in modern relationships. He will describe how intimate relationships can be crucibles for transformation–individual and collective, psychological and spiritual. Read a blog post by David on Stillpoint Spaces blog.
