They can be hard and painful AND they make the most important part of our life.
They ARE life – we are only ever as happy as our relationships!
The place we have learned about relationships and love in our childhood was our family home.
If we felt safe, supported and connected with our parents or caretakers, that became our definition of love in our adulthood.
If we were abandoned, disconnected, emotionally or physically neglected, isolated or abused, that became our belief about love we operate under.
And although consciously we know love should feel good, loving, caring, open, supportive, trusting – subconsciously we believe love is complete opposite of that, which results in attracting partners who represent those subconscious beliefs of ours.
Dysfunctional relationships in the adulthood are the result of developmental trauma which is the main reason people don’t know how to meet their needs for autonomy and connection.
In order to heal dysfunctional relationships we have to go back to the root cause of developmental trauma, providing the unmet needs for our inner child.
In our two and half days intensive workshop we will be learning and rediscovering that our relationships can improve and strengthen when:
1. We develop a healthy sense of self
2. We become aware of our subconscious emotional drives and triggers and make necessary changes
3. We can practice a radical honesty with ourselves and our partner
4. We use the pain in our relationship to define our values, goals, needs and desires
5. We clearly communicate to our partner what we need and want
6. We are able to have compassion and empathy for our partner’s pain, and are able to understand what they are feeling, what their wants and needs are, instead of trying to love them from our own separate perspective
7. We create ways to deeply connect and share the gift of vulnerability with our partner, developing awareness of his or hers subconscious emotional drives and triggers
8. We commit to a healthy, mature, conscious, open and authentic communication, practicing uninterrupted active listening with our partner
This in depth workshop IS about facing your shadow and potentially your light.
It is about You and Your Truth, your inner child, your ego, your past wounds, shadows, insecurities, attachment styles, suppressed emotions, your open heart and your empathy, your challenges within relationships, your thoughts and feelings, values, beliefs and expectations, your healthy and not so healthy patterns of thinking, behaving and communicating to your loved one(s), your listening skills, your love for yourself, your goals, needs and desires within your relationship.
This workshop IS NOT about quick positivity, calm and relaxation, and fixing your partner or other family members.
A raw awareness, courage and willingness to face your shadow side and to be vulnerable and open to challenge your current way of thinking and behaving, whilst letting go of coping mechanisms which kept you safe but unhappy and inauthentic in your life, is required.
What you can expect from this workshop:
Two and half days of relationship shifts and transformations – through inner child connection and heart opening, through deep, intense, soulful, mindful and conscious work on your own, in pairs and in the group – a weekend of total cleansing and healing on conscious and unconscious level.

“Angelica’s workshop was great, and we were speaking about it till next morning! Different from the average therapy approach I’d be used to, I was surprised by the techniques which you shared with us all, allowing us to understand the process, enhance on our own, and keep as a record for future use and development! You showed me that there is a solid system behind your work and made me curious to know more!” ~ Chris
