By effectively dealing with criticism and conflict using IMAGO Relationship Therapy, a couple can then reach a new stage in their journey toward conscious relationship. They can move beyond the power struggle and beyond the stage of awakening into the stage of transformation.
"Your relationship will now be based on mutual caring and love, the kind of love that can best be described as "agape." Agape is a self-transcending love that redirects eros, the life force, away from yourself to your partner. As one transaction follows another, the pain of the past is slowly erased, and both of you will experience the reality of your esential wholeness."Reading it, however, is seriously cutting into my blogging time!
