Our current culture provides very few opportunities to develop our intelligence in intimacy and emotional connection with others. Many of us pay a high price for what we do not know, by attempting to learn this crucial wisdom through trial and error in relationships. Often this creates tension and projection with our partners, and we find we have nowhere to turn. While some of us choose to retreat from relationships into safety and solitude from the confusion, pain, and often anger, others of us attempt at yet another relationship hoping that this time it will be different. No matter which choice we make, most of us long for a safe, loving environment where we can learn, discover, and better understand how to create long lasting happiness in our relationships.
