Conflict is inevitable. It is part of the human condition - but there is hope for the wounded Power Exchange Relationship.
No matter who you are or what your background is – at some point you are going to come into conflict with someone you’re in relationship with. The pain of serious relationship conflict can motivate us to seek relief in ways that are inadequate or even harmful to the fundamental needs of the M/s dynamic. When faced with discord many M/s relationships implode under the weight of discussion, or suffer in silence through chronic conflict avoidance. Frequently, explosive confrontations are the damaging result of frustration on both sides, or people just give up and go their separate ways, only to repeat the same patterns in the next relationship.
We created The Winter of Our Discontent for anyone that has experienced conflict in their P/e relationship to help them get on top of the issues and get on the path toward healing. This course is also an excellent discussion starter for anyone to use to surface and address any potential relationship landmines long BEFORE they become issues. We've taught Winter in front of hundreds of people across the country and it continues to be one of our most requested classes - now you can enjoy this course in the privacy of your own home so you can make your relationship even stronger!
