It's always great to hear others' stories, open our hearts to be able to empathise and share in their journey of healing and exploring. We have more in common than we think. Glad to be at the #tribeless host event at #hive yesterday. #safeconversations #littleblessings

A blessing to my childhood and the lives of many he touched, and those he continues to touch. Although his point in “living” has passed, his influence has not and is more important today than ever before. At the end of his life, following 9-11, he expressed discouragement and cynicism about his impact on the world for the greater good. It is sad to see this but because his work made such an impact on so many with the ripple effect over time and across generations who watch re-runs and this film... he does continue to represent kindness, empathy, and unconditional acceptance of a child’s inherent value. All of these aspects uphold my own Imago work’s emphasis on our inborn joyful aliveness and lifelong quest to re-experience unconditional love.#love#unconditionallove #imagotherapy #joyfulaliveness #acceptance#lovingconnection #goodparents#avivaisanimagotherapist #avivaisanimagoambassador #justthewayyouare #fredrogers #neighborhoodofmakebelieve #kingfriday#sarahsaturday #1960s #youmatter#safeconversations #iloveyoujustthewayyouare #kindness#empathy #validation #mirroring #peace

Last night I had the honor of sharing Imago Theory on Connection and Communication to another Open Center audience.The Open Center is a holistic educational and event center located in Midtown Manhattan. People interested, curious, and who practice holistic approaches to healing of mind, body, and spirit come to The Open Center to access a variety of offerings. I am happy to spread the healing potential of Imago to those unfamiliar or to refresh the knowledge of those who may have known about Imago already. When I ask an audience “ Who has heard of Imago?” I get one or two hands... after my presentation I get questions about how to find workshops, books, and how to access my services, would I speak at their group or venue, and more. The “Aha!” moments on their faces as they recognize themselves when I discuss “ maximizers “ and “ minimizers” , or when I describe how our early caregivers influence our choices of partners ... I see a wave of recognition through the room. Because I see their faces and they do not necessarily see each other it’s a wonderful feeling to watch the information resonating with them. Volunteers who do a dialogue demo with me always find the process enlightening and interesting for how it uncovers layers of underlying motivations and clues about how they interact in the present based on the past. The safety and positivity of Imago comes across to everyone. #imagotherapy #imagotherapist #thespacebetween #workshops #publicspeaker #presenter#avivaisanimagotherapist #openyourheart #love#connection#teacher#marriage #wedding#eventplanner #weddingphotographer #clergy#minister#rabbi#priest#holistic#newyork#opencenter#harvillehendrix #helenlakellyhunt #relationshipsfirst #safeconversations

This is the best I can do today. Park the car 🚗 open the trunk lay on a 🧘🏻‍♀️ bolster and wait for the magic of a soothing sunset 🌅...listening to the ocean 🌊 whisper sweet things to my 👂 ear. The driver of car parked next to me peeked to share: “I am going to borrow this from you, you know how to live life, you know what’s important in life.” Glad I inspired him. ☀️ I’m 🎣 🐠 fishing for inspiration myself after spending all day in a @relationshipsfirst #safeconversations training that continues tomorrow. Still thinking about #bourdain & #spade 🧠 #sunset ☀️🌴🙏🏼⛱️

When I teach Imago principles to couples and in classrooms I discuss how being heard is an act of love, recognition, and acknowledgement of our existence. We have evolved to a very verbal culture where our feelings and emotions are primarily expressed by words and thoughts. Words and thoughts are grasped by listening. Even someone reading your written word ( and paying close attention to it ) is an act of listening. To feel heard is to feel loved. Imago encourages partners to learn and practice attuned and active listening. The first step is to
mirror your partner. Clearly respond and mirror exactly what your partner has said. By actively listening ( an art form not easily learned due to lifelong messages to impatiently wait our turn to speak ) we give our partners the gift of attention, recognition, interest and so much more! We are offering love.#imagotherapy #avivaisanimagotherapist #thespacebetween #mirroring #validation #empathy #connection#lovingconnection #attuned#attunedlistening #harvillehendrix #helenlakellyhunt #focus #verballove #recognition #iseeyou#ihearyou#safeconversations #relationships #relatioshipsfirst#teaching#adulteducation#workshops#facilitator#1-631-885-4375

In Imago Theory we talk about personality adaptations which present in our current close relationships. We illustrate these complementary and often contrary ( when we are in conflict ) styles as the turtle and the hailstorm. Turtles tend to retreat and withdraw when overwhelmed and hailstorms tend to pursue, emote, and overwhelm turtles with their need to be heard. Both the turtle and hailstorm have developed these coping styles earlier in life as ways to handle their caregivers’ behaviors which ranged from intrusive and overwhelming to remote, distant and emotionally unavailable. In our closest current relationships we will revert to protective modes as ways to plead for connection ( the hailstorm) or protect from too much intrusive energy ( turtle ). ...
Yesterday I found this brave turtle asserting himself to the incessant barking or two dogs behind a fence “defending” their turf. Instead of hiding his head in his shell he poked his head out as far as it could go, holding it there, eyes focused on them and not backing down. I was impressed by his assertiveness and how he held his ground. Contrary to the extreme of a “ snapping turtle “ reaction to the hailstorm(s) he decided he was going to embrace his position. I love how this simple walk in nature provided such a magical Imago moment.#imagotherapy #imago #ihearyou #turtle#hailstorm #harvillehendrix #helenlakellyhunt #gynairt#adaptation #holdyourground#safeconversations #relationships #avivaisanimagotherapist #avivaisanimagoambassador #www.avivachanskyguttmann.com#love #thespacebetween #imagotherapist #couplestherapist #adulted #workshops #nature#magic

Had the honor (along with the incredible #pamhendrickson) of working with Helen LaKelly Hunt, Harville Hendrix and Chuck Mensch on their programs and course-mapping yesterday!
Their #safeconversations mission is incredible and can’t wait to see how more and more individuals, couples and groups learn how to really talk to each other.

I tried to explain to someone I’ve known a very long time how Imago Therapy believes in the premise that at our core we feel most vibrant and connected in life when we experience joyful aliveness. In her life she was raised without a speck of joyful aliveness and as I explained how joire de vivre replicates our earliest joys of spontaneous play a wave of skepticism crossed over her face, and she then began to speak about something entirely different. I was prepared for her reaction and also aware that you cannot impress upon someone what joyful aliveness is when it’s not in their own emotional language. There are people who are joy-averse or have an inability to feel it. How do we help them understand it ? Often deductive questioning will help - What do you most enjoy doing? When do you feel in “flow?” ...When you do this you help shed a little light on where the potential for their own version of joy exists. #avivaisanimagotherapist #joyfulaliveness #joiredevivre #spontaneousjoy #lettinggo #relinquish#flow#flowexperience #liveinthemoment #mirroring #validation #empathy #attunedlistening #safeconversations #joy#play#spontaneousplay#imagotheory #imagotherapy #relationships💕

Attention is a variant of love. Although we may consider paying attention to a newscast or theater production, for instance, a necessary skill...when we pay attention to a PERSON or any living being we are offering intentional regard. Intentional regard is a conscious decision and the way this feels at a gut level, is that we are loved. In Imago Theory we look at our template of love from early life- How we were treated and cared for by our earliest caregivers - as our Imago ( image ) of love . If we received appropriate and targeted attention to meet our needs, we did not suffer from the frustrations of unmet needs. If, however, we enter adult relationships coming from a childhood of UNMET needs we tend to find partners who will continue this frustration dynamic within us and we will also provoke the frustration by our own behaviors. Imago technique offers a soothing component of attentive and active listening called mirroring. For a partner to mirror us they must pay close attention to what we are saying. It is through this process that partners begin to feel heard, understood and embraced in the loving energy of attention. ...let me show you how 1-631-885-4375❤️...#avivaisanimagotherapist #mirroring #validation #ihearyou #attention#validation #letmeseeifistillgotit #safety#safeconversations #marriage #bonding#connection#imagotheory #imagotherapy #payattention #ineedtobeheard #engaged#weddibgs#bride#groom#conversation #discuss#premaritalcounseling #divorcemediation #attorneys#precana #church#cateringhall#weddingphotography #❤️

When I signed up to @relationshipsfirst #safeconversations - I signed up to learn to help, not necessarily to learn to do. The name resonated with me for what it could do in the workplace and wider community, and how the power of safe conversations could be harnessed to bring people together; repair broken connection in a devisive society. I had worked in this space in my yoga for some years, but I saw this as a new and more accessible language. What I didn't expect was to come away with so much for my own relationship - for one, you can't teach authentically what you don't practice, and more importantly, I believe in this thing. I love how Harville and Helen have tied research, science, personal experience, accessibility, equality, and raw emotion into this toolkit for connecting and being.

If you’re in a relationship of any kind, believe and receive this truth ✨ This is especially true of romantic relationships. Usually when we are in conflict, we assume it means things are falling apart and that it’s not meant to be. What if we were to take a different perspective? What if we were to view conflict as growth trying to happen and leaned into the conflict and worked through it? This is the kind of truth we will be teaching to couples in the upcoming Safe Conversations workshop this spring 💕

After spending two jam-packed days with about 25 other people for the Safe Conversations Leader Training, we are ready to bring a workshop back to Baltimore. Five years ago when we went on a Getting the Love You Want retreat @omegainstitute with Harville and Helen, it transformed our marriage and how we connect and communicate with each other. We’ve known since then that we want to bring this to other couples. Well, now we’re ready! 🤗Bill and I will be leading our first Safe Conversations workshop within the next 90 days. It’ll be hosted at our church in Towson, and we will get the word out well in advance for anyone who wants to come! If you’re looking to feel more connection, closeness, and joy in your relationship, we hope you’ll join us! 💑

I wholeheartedly believe that dialogue - where we listen with curiosity - is what will create a step-change in this devisive world we live in. This weekend I'm learning some powerful tools and conversational structure from @relationshipsfirst - designed from extensive research to help couples communicatate. I can see the ripple effect that this can have beyond my personal and working relationships, to rebuilding the broken connection between people as a whole. Especially people who have different opinions. When you don't listen, you dismiss that person as not worthy - an object, non-human; and that's when the trouble starts. It's easier to inflict pain on something non-human, and it's easier to become isolated from each other when we're inflicting pain. Safe conversations is a step in the right direction - I want to bring this to you Houston!

Love is a very broad concept meaning different things to different people. As we approach the commercialism of Valentine’s Day and look around the self help sections of bookstores, florists and card stores we see the term “Love” everywhere. Over-saturation of any concept detracts from the its purer form. But if we examine how it FEELS to be loved and to receive love many times it is a more refined experience we are looking for. In Imago dialogues partners experience the bliss of being fully heard and understood. Oftentimes they’ve struggled for years unable to identify where the pain and chronic ache stems from between them. As we go through the steps of mirroring, validation and empathy it becomes apparent...all along the longing to be heard and understood is the core pain. To be understood also means to be seen, recognized and valued for our unique role on the planet at this very moment. #love#valentinesday #appreciation #imagotheory #imagotherapy #avivaisanimagotherapist #gettingtheloveyouwant #keepingtheloveyoufind #thanksforthelesson #empathy #vibration #mirroring #summarizing #echoing#ihearyou#iseeyou#iunderstandyou #harvillehendrix #helenlakellyhunt #safeconversations #relationships #relationshiptherapy #relationshipsfirst #thanksforthelesson #loveisintheair #romance #romanticlove #differentiation #listening#ahamoments #✨

You may think losing friendships and relationships will feel wrong or bad. If it’s for the right reasons, personal evolution, and to follow your spiritual growth then it will actually feel natural and inevitable. It’s liberating to see it as a part of the greater scheme of things because you can then stand back and realize it’s happening for your development. Perhaps the first few times and earlier in life you’ll feel adrift and wounded by a friendship loss but when you reframe it as a growth opportunity there is so much you’ve gained. Most lost relationships ( by choice or by fade away ) were instructive opportunities for what we need, don’t need, can accept, cannot accept, tolerate or not tolerate. It becomes less about who the person was versus what did they represent? Amazing and artful , life will always give us what we need through situations, experiences and relationships .

I’ve had conversations with people this week where we’ve examined if becoming stronger and more firm about our beliefs means we are less kind. Kindness is often seen as weakness in business culture. For myself and others in helping and service professions it’s tricky to find a balance between offering kindness and compassion characteristic of our work versus being strong, firm and tough in protecting our boundaries. The need for resilience emerges as we straddle and move from one position to the next and everything in between. Oftentimes resilience is crucial to bounce back from how personal blows can feel in our business roles; and in any other roles we have. Resilience is best measured by how several days or even hours later you’ve detached from personalizing an obstacle. You start again, anew. You just keep going.

Talking is among the most dangerous things people do, and listening is the most infrequent. This can result in conflict that needs a solution. Through the practice of "Safe Conversations," (a structured dialogue process that Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD developed) we help people experience safety in all conversations, shifting the perspective from the individual to the relationship. We empower people with the tools to talk without criticism, listen without judgment and connect beyond our differences. This helps people build healthy relationships.

In this one-day workshop, participants will learn this new way to talk that makes conversation safe and achieves connection, and they will be introduced to the new relationship and brain science that supports it.
How we interact with each other is the key to our emotional, physical and economic health. By teaching a process that facilitates relational change, we aim to establish healthy relationships as a high value which will foster stability and peace.

This introductory instructional level course is designed to:
1. Describe the Safe Conversations model and list the principles.
2. Describe Imago Relationship Theory and Therapy.
3. Examine the  neuroscience principles of the Safe Conversations model.
4. Practice the strategies outlined in the Safe Conversation manual.

Sharing an appreciation for your partner can certainly be new, unfamiliar and even uncomfortable for some. Did you try giving your partner an appreciation today? If so, please share a picture of you and your partner stating "One thing I appreciate about you is..." and use the hashtag #shareanappreciation! We would love to hear how sharing or receiving an appreciation impacted your relationship.
