Awareness and Communication Skills for Every Relationship
No matter how much I eat there is always room for dessert. Dessert doesn't go to the stomach, dessert goes to the heart. Unknown
Taste is not what many think it is. In school, we were taught that it is one of the five senses, along with smell, sight, hearing and touch. That it was a result of food dancing over our taste buds, sending important signals to the brain. It isn't really that simple, is it?
We have come to realize that taste is far more complicated and that food actually has the ability to manipulate us in different ways as we all have our own biases filter the taste experience. Taste is both hereditary and developed, both personal and universal. It is actually a product of all five senses interacting in unexpected ways.
Our relationships are no different and in fact even more complicated. They not only include all 5 senses, they also include everything that happens inside our heads. The vast array of emotions, logic and desires.
When did you start to become passionate about food? At some point, you started working on your skills. Did your skills come instantly or have they improved over time? Most of us tend to learn through a combination of gathering knowledge, practice, failure and success. It's probably safe to say that you have experienced a few failed recipes in your time.
You have been exposed to food for your entire life. You learned about food from parents, friends, relatives, television and maybe even some formal training. You may have learned at home, at school, at the University level or in restaurants. There are cooking classes, family get-togethers and social gatherings where you can learn more about food. You eat and enjoy food every day. You are literally exposed to food on a constant basis. You love cooking and although when you were young, you used to have to follow recipes to the letter, it has now become second nature. It's easy now, and you even anticipate learning more.
So how much exposure have you had to relationship development? Was there a class in school? A university class? At family gatherings does everyone sit down and talk about what it takes to be in a conscious relationship? How to better understand your partner, identify your triggers and be more content in your life and relationship?
Relationship development is hard....in the beginning, just like anything else is hard in the beginning. It's hard because we haven't been exposed to it and the concepts are a little foreign. Just like making your first souffle was hard.
Being a Conscious Partner does take a little effort. Just like anything though, once you learn the concepts and behaviors, it does become second nature. Best of all, relationship development can be fun! We can promise that there are no couches or yoga mats....just straight talk in a fun and relaxed environment. Let us show you how!
