We're making it official! Though we're all in the midst of strange times, we would like to raise our torch in the dark, sing our song during the storm, and reconnect with the many souls we've connected with over the years.
With love, Zain and Zahra
May we create something that endures eternity over the course of this lifetime.
May each day bring renewed devotion to invest in this Holy endeavor so that we are ready to die peacefully each night knowing that we've done something inspiring (life giving), even if it is as big as sharing a few heartfelt words.
May the gifts we leave behind serve our children and our children's children yet to come.
As part of our seven year anniversary we treated ourselves to a present: a course on relationships!
We thought, "well, we've been investing in all sorts of things that we love- good foods, books, trips to the jungle, a sacred living space, etc. but how about we start turning our attention and 'investments' to what, or rather, to whom we love the most, each other!" Of course by doing what we love we enrich our relationship but the study of the art of relating helps us put concepts and words to the ups and downs we experience as a couple.
In this post we share notes and expand on session 3 of the Evolver Learning Lab's "Falling and Staying in Love", which was taught by Bryan Franklin and Jennifer Russell.
There is a lot of information in this one and so some things may be unclear. We recommend focusing on whatever resonates with you and seeing how you can apply it to your partnership.
