Couples' Communication and the Cinematic Immersion Method with Warren Farrell
Couples' Communication Retreat At Omega Institute Sep 28 - Sep 30 2018 Rhinebeck, NY
Our inability to handle personal criticism from loved ones is a common Achilles’ heel. The more deeply we love, the more fragile we feel. Soon, couples feel they are walking on eggshells, unable to express themselves honestly, and their love fades. Raising children and money magnify the problems even as they become the reason couples stay together. The result? Couples often remain legally married but psychologically divorced—in a minimum-security-prison marriage.
The biggest culprit in this dynamic is defensiveness. Active listening is a good solution, but is rarely used. Warren Farrell developed Cinematic Immersion, a method that enables couples to actively listen to their partner without feeling defensive. As couples learn how to emotionally experience “criticism” as love, they simultaneously learn “the art and discipline of love” and how to deepen that love throughout the week. Interested? Join us for today's show, and if you want more, consider joining Warren for his couples workshop at the Omega Institute. His workshop is for couples—any two people with a history who desire a future (parents, married or divorced; newlyweds; parent-child; siblings) and is also useful for health professionals in their work with patients.
