Join Alison Armstrong as she brings the phenomenal distinctions from Core Partnership to women and men who want the results only partnership can deliver, and are willing to be uncomfortable, unsettled and enthusiastically engage in the unfamiliar!
Since Partnership — that magical paradigm of synergy and alchemy — is a way of Being, it's not enough to just learn about it. The real trick is getting the feelings of Partnership into your body; situated clearly and firmly where they can become natural ways of speaking, listening and producing results.
“For me, the point of understanding gender differences — and the effects of masculine and feminine ways of being, thinking and communicating — is to be able to honor ourselves and others, and gain access to the domain of Partnership. This domain has nothing to do with Instinct. In fact, every instinct I’ve identified pulls in the opposite direction and prevents partnership. For example, instinct compels us to act in ways that reduce tension while partnership actually requires the ability to hold tension. The fantasy of zero tension and experiencing ‘one-ness’ means that someone has disappeared and partnership is now impossible.” — Alison Armstrong
(Please note: Alison now leads The Dance of Partnership on her own.)
In this 24-minute interview, Alison and Michele talk about what you can expect, what you will learn, and why it's absolutely NOT NECESSARY to attend as a “couple.”
YES! But maybe not in the way you are used to or afraid of. In 3 simple lessons, you’ll be moving with a partner around the room with style — and then the real education in partnership begins. Partner dancing will reveal how you give and receive, collapse and control, communicate and withhold, play and withdraw, trust and abandon — it all shows up in the dancing. As you alternate “providing” and “receiving,” you’ll experience both sides of partnership. And never be the same.
NO! There is no couples price for this workshop. Come on your own, or with a friend, co-worker or family member. You’ll experience partnership with both genders and all types of personalities. Just like in life! If you do come as a couple, you should be prepared to dance with other partners — except the very first and very last dance. Why? Because it’s very difficult to learn something new with someone personally invested in your achievement.
