Description (from Rev. Cynthia)
We all dance with emotional triangles on a regular basis. They are a common pattern in the fabric of relationship. When people are indirect in their communication (going to Sue about a challenge they are having with Bob), frustration, confusion, ineffectiveness, and hurt feelings often occur. You may have attempted to deal with this by telling people not to triangulate and it seems they don’t listen, the pattern continues, and things become more and more entangled.
In this training, I invite you to join me on this journey of discovery. We will explore together the nature of triangles, how they affect our work in spiritual communities, and ways to work with them to empower and support healthy spiritual community. I view this as an ongoing dance in which we are all learners and teachers, attempting to grow in our capacity to understand one another, cultivate relationships with one another, and build communities for transformation.
