Within this supportive circle we will explore the impact that Attachment; Isolation and our unknown Behavioural Loop Patterns have on our lives, and what we can do to master each of our inter-personal relationships.  You will learn those automated emotional and behavioural responses driving your compulsive thoughts, habits, volatile reactions and why you fall in love.  You will understand how to connect better with your children, parents, partners, co-workers, friends and most importantly yourself!

The group is intended for adults who are in a relationship or single. Our curriculum examines relationships between adults; between parents and children; and between the ‘You’ that others are permitted to see and the ‘Real You’.

  • Conditional Acceptance – Conditional Love;
  • Irrational Behaviour;

    Philip Be'er and Jenna Forster... thanks for offering this course. As a currant participant, I'm appreciating the opportunity to get curious about myself and how I relate to others. There is a great balance between digging deeper into our own personal stories and learning the science behind our decision making/ relational living processes.
    More great tools for my tool box.

    I took this course. The insight looking at my darkness/shadow side and transforming how I view my "perceived" flaws was amazing. Taking a look at my insecurities as a parent and human in interpersonal relationships was transformed from guilt and isolation to strength and validation and........ Community...... I no longer question if I'm good enough. I know I am. I have truly released myself from the "behavioural loops" that held me back from moving forward and claiming the life I want.... Acknowledging the life I have created and how very far I have come. I am released from shame and guilt of doubts and past "learning lessons" vs "mistakes." I am a good mother, advocate, woman and potential partner for someone when the time arrives.
