Practical Skills for Successful Relationships

Practical Skills for Successful Relationships

Thursdays 6-8:30pm, April 24th – May 15th  

The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference. Sustaining a relationship as a source of pleasure, love and happiness does not work by magic and a relationship usually does not fall apart from a lack of commitment or love. Most often it’s simply a matter of not knowing enough about how relationships work, and not having the necessary tools to be successful.

pairs foundation

This 10 hour PAIRS workshop is a research-validated, highly experiential, education and skills training. It is not therapy. Most people devote hundreds of hours to their professional education, yet learning the tools for sustained love and success with their intimate partner is uncommon. Instead their behavior, feelings and expectations for their partner are based on their early experiences in their families. Jordan and Jenica empower participants with knowledge and skills to sustain relationships as a source of pleasure, love and joy.

You will learn skills to:

* Speak and listen so you both feel understood

* Find liberating solutions to tough problems

* Deepen connection, friendship and loving behaviors

* Avoid dirty fighting and hurtful exchanges

* Repair hurts and disappointments

* Enhance trust, communication, intimacy and bonding

* Reconnect with the best times

Jordan and Jenica Schevene are certified trainers of PAIRS Essentials and have been practicing PAIRS skills for over 12 years. As hard working parents and during the challenges of life they have depended on these tools to come back to a place of love, intimacy and trust. They are committed to the health and joy of this valley and see PAIRS as a way to heal, empower and create lasting relationships for individuals and families.

Body of Wisdom

Body of Wisdom

Saturday, April 26th 2-5pm


Each of our bodies holds a story. Our bodies are shaped by our beliefs about ourselves and the world. Thoughts, emotions and core-beliefs can manifest in the body as patterns of tension, pain, postural habits, and symptoms of un-wellness. Being present with these patterns without trying to “fix” them allows for new awareness and the possibility of transformation.

Rebecca invites you to take this opportunity to listen compassionately to the wisdom of your body.  In this workshop we will be exploring a pattern of body-mind through guided mindfulness & self-inquiry. There will be some gentle movement, drawing and writing.

“The mind is like the wind, and the body is like the sand; if you want to see how the wind is blowing, look at the sand.” ~ Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

Divine Cosmos Meditation

john recordsJoin spiritual teacher and nationally recognized non-profit leader, John Records, for further awakening using Divine Cosmos meditative practices!

Tuesdays at 5:30pm

This Meditation is Offered on a Gift Basis

In this meditation we will explore the felt sense of peace, joy and love; use these profound energies to heal ourselves and others; and through these energies enter into the spaciousness of liberation.

Emphasis varies with the needs of the participants and often involves somatic elements such as sensing and gestures. Aspects of this practice include:

Satsang and sharing, Transmission through sound (speech), sight (looking into each other’s eyes) and touch (shaktipat), Connection, (partner practice), Entelechy Activation (“entelechy” is the vital force that supports and guides self-actualization and fulfillment), Integrative Kinesthetic Alchemy (simple movements help to embody and merge with primal energies and archetypes), Remember Who You Are (adopting the perspective of That and integrating life experiences), Divine Cosmos Meditation (use of the physical body as the portal to feeling the Cosmos as one’s body), Universal Healing Meditation (our wounds and challenges enable us to connect with and bless all other beings with similar circumstances, which heals them and us), Nothing Comes Next (entry into timeless emptiness).

Instructor John Records is authorized to teach in three spiritual traditions. He has taught Subtle Energy Practices at the John F. Kennedy University graduate school, Meditation for the Chronically Ill at Oregon Health Sciences University School of Nursing, and has nurtured the spiritual development of women and men ranging from beginners to seasoned practitioners. John divides his time between Paonia and the San Francisco area, and travels nationally to give workshops and trainings.
