From We to Me: Expanding Relational Awareness
Our relationship with ourselves builds the foundation for our relationships with others. And our Self relationship was shaped by our earliest relationships and what we learned about what is ok and what’s not, what’s rewarded, what’s punished, what’s attended to and what’s ignored. We learn how to “be” in these relationships to be OK. How we learn to “be” in relationship and the patterns that develop, directly affect how we relate to ourselves and others.
Of the billions of people on the planet, you are the only person who has direct access to your inner self. From We to Me is a 6-week live class experience where we’ll explore how we are shaped by our relationships, the essential nature of relationships, how interpersonal conflict arises, the ways in which we defend and protect our self, and how we can learn to develop better relationships (with anyone) by understanding ourselves with greater clarity.
In this experiential course you will learn:
- How we are all shaped by our earliest relationships and how we form patterns that impact our present and future relationships
- How our real and false Selves are developed and their impact on our relationships
- What's important to a healthy relationship (of any kind) and how that can be developed
- Insights into the ways in which we contribute to our conflicts
- How our conflicts can be a guide for our own development
Who should enroll in this course?
- Anyone interested in exploring their experience of interpersonal conflicts and curious about how they might be contributing to them
- Anyone wanting to understand and heal the ways in which they are divided and separated from their essence and from others
- Anyone wanting to understand the inner landscape more fully
- Coaches, consultants, therapists, counselors, leadership development professionals, HR Managers, who use aspects of emotional intelligence, relational intelligence, and/or mindfulness in their daily work
- EQ Profile Practitioners who want to develop a deeper foundation upon which the EQ Profile was built.
Alison Whitmire is the President of Learning in Action (LIA), a company committed to healing the divide within and between people. We believe we can become divided from our divine essence (and similarly divided from others) in ways we don’t know and can’t see. We aim to heal the divide through the cultivation of loving awareness for ourselves, others and the world.
Alison is an authority in Emotional and Relational Intelligence, a Professional Certified Coach, a Master EQ Practitioner and a Certified Narrative Coach. She has thousands of hours of experience coaching entrepreneurs, CEOs and business owners. She is certified as a 200 RYT Yoga Teacher and is currently enrolled in a 2-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher training program for which Stepping into Mindfulness is part of the practicum. Alison is a TEDx speaker and a 3 time TEDx Conference organizer.
“Alison does a remarkable job of holding space for people and meeting them where they are to share her wisdom on mindfulness and being present. The blend of meditation, information sharing and small group breakouts was just right to help solidify the learning and put the practices into place immediately. I highly recommend working with Alison in any capacity.”
During the 6 live, interactive classes, we’ll be focusing on:
Week 1: How We Become Divided in Relationships
In the first session we’ll explore the Real Self we are each born into and the False Self that develops as a means of protection. We’ll discover how we can become divided from our Real Self due to our perceived need to protect ourself. We'll examine how the Authentic Self and False Self are established and their impacts, both on the quality of our relationships and our individual growth and development.
Week 2: The Dance of Relationships - Intimacy and Autonomy
In the second session, we’ll explore the universal relational tensions between intimacy and autonomy and what and how we learn about them from our caregivers. Further, we'll learn the impacts on our relationships when we don't clearly establish intimacy and/or aren't given the freedom to be autonomous.
Week 3 - Developing Intimacy in Relationships
In this session, we'll explore what intimacy in relationships means (not just love relationships) and how it is developed and the role of the Real Self in creating and nurturing intimacy with others.
Week 4 - Developing Autonomy in Relationships
In this session, we'll look at what autonomy in relationship means, how it's developed, what can inhibit it, and how it's supportive of both relationships and self-development. We'll also examine the role of the Real Self in supporting autonomy within relationships.
Week 5 - Recognizing Our Relational Patterns
This session will explore how our past relationships shape and inform our present and future relationships, how patterns are formed, common patterns, and how they can show up in our interpersonal conflicts.
Week 6 - Conflict as Curriculum
Building upon all prior sessions, this final session will reveal how our interpersonal conflicts are the fingers pointing to our personal development.
“Alison is passionate about Healing the Divide across our multiple relationships personally and professionally. She has a knack for dropping seeds of truth throughout her telling of stories and teaching moments. I’d recommend anyone taking a course from Alison.”
