Secrets to A Happy Relationship!
7:15 PM - 8:15 PM
Exploring the Sacred Partnership
Each 4th Wednesday of the month we explore the profound and beautiful expressions of the sacred life through art, music, dance, sacred text, etc. From journeys on the sacred path to rich deep experiences of the sacred within — we join to strengthen and enhance our sacred journey as a community living in love. Love offering, service from 7:15 – 8:15 pm
2-22 is considered a sacred partnership number. I was inspired by author and futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard when she spoke at Unity and said “…if we want to have conscious, awake relationships, we need to be in conversation with those who are exploring what that means and how to make that work.”
Sheila Jacob has spent 30 years as a successful marriage counselor discovering the secrets to a happy marriage. After helping hundreds of couples, Sheila decided to create a marriage coaching community online so people can continue to grow and strength their relationships.
Following her talk, we will have a rich and lively discussion with a diverse group of couples from our community, from straight, and gay-couples, to couples who come from diverse backgrounds and disabilities. They all have powerful insights to their success.
Not in relationship? We are all in relationship with people in our lives so even if we are single, the wisdom shared can enhance our relationships. Ultimately love comes from our higher self, the source of Oneness that we cannot separate ourselves from. There is a variety of levels of intimacy and struggle that we have all gone through, so there is much wisdom to be had as
we grow as a community living in love.
We celebrate the sharing of relating with the sacred higher parts of ourselves with our intimates, family, friends and the world. We end the evening in a prayer ritual receiving blessings from the couples, who would love to support a community living in love.
The evening is woven with lots of love, with love songs, sung by the angelic voices of Momo Cortez and Denise Ruelas on piano who will wrap us in the beauty of songs that open our hearts. And a sacred ritual led by Christy Michaels to lead us to the love within — our higher self.
