Flesh & Spirit – Couples Council


With Shay and Galit Hanien from Haifa / Israel

What is Flesh and Spirit?

This innovative workshop is based on The Way of Council for couples. Council is a non-hierarchical form of deep communication where each person is empowered to develop and deepen their attentive listening and authentic speaking from the heart.

During the workshop, a small supportive group will create safe space for individual couples to discover the voice of their own relationship. Exploring, identifying, and playing, the dyadic work facilitates mutual and energizing sharing that has powerful potential for the short and long term health of individuals and couples. The focus of this workshop is to connect to the basic elements of the relationship, “the third” present force in any couple. This is a process by which each couple gets to share from the heart and listen sincerely while simultaneously being witnessed and supported by the group of couples.

Paricipants: Max. 8 couples (16 participants)

Language: Galit and Shay speak English, participants can speak their own language (English, Dutch, German ….) translation is organized for necessary translation.

Food and Accommodation in cozy twin rooms will be in the guest department of the Eschwege Institut itself.
