I Got Me, You Got You, We Got We
In the Sanctuary we understand that better relationships start with you being in your power as an individual (sovereign self). When “you’ve got you” and are feeling grounded and resourced, then it’s much easier to support your beloved in what their needs may be.
When you and your partner both “have” yourselves, you can more easily “have each other” which means you are able to give more to each other and your relationship.
When you are both giving and receiving in balance and attending to your relationship needs more fully, then you have more to give to each other, your community, families and friends.
During the next Love Lounge we will drop into more deep dialog around what it means to have yourself, then your beloved and then the ‘WE’.
We discussed as a community what that takes, what challenges might be up for you and your partner to help make sure that you come from a more resources place as often as possible. And we connected on what to do when you don’t “have you.”
I Got Me, You Got You, We Got We
We’ve all had moments when there is nothing left to do but surrender, trust, and remember that there is a higher plan at play. Yet, how do we make sure that we stay in practice of this knowing long before we feel pushed to our edges?
Sometimes it takes a higher perspective to be able to truly see what’s happening and pull out of our myopic view of ourselves and our circumstances.
As Queens, remembering to take a “birds eye view” requires a commitment to being in present moment awareness and allows us more ease in making sure that we are able to draw upon our arsenal of tools and practices that help us stay centered and focused.
As we come to the completion of 2020, a year that has provided humanity with all sorts of opportunities for surrender and trust, we get to redefine how we choose to hold ourselves and how we want to be held as we continue to embrace the higher order of life and its ever unfolding divine plan.
In our next Council of Queens gathering we will discuss various ways in which we have learned to navigate this past year and share in some tools that keep us not only sane, but held and grounded.
This month, Chase and Susy come to us wanting to explore the way archetypes like “king”, “queen”, “prince”, and “damsel” inform how to relate as a couple and as community leaders.
Mark Palmer, founding member of the Integral Institute who will be joining us for an engaging and interactive dialogue designed to help us explore, evolve, and heal our relationship to power so that we can lead, serve, and inspire by becoming the vessel.
In this salon we’ll touch on the integral model and spiral dynamics as we explore a model that helps us understand both our personal development and our cultural evolution. We’ll understand the role of emotions and emotional maturity and the advantages of inhabiting multiple perspectives to inform better action. We will go beyond just having our personal agency and sovereignty where we might often be operating out of a mostly self-centered “preservation” mindset towards a more balanced, interconnected, comprehensive mindset.
We’ll also look at immediate and long-term actions so we can contribute effectively to positive changes in culture — individually, collectively, in our hearts and in our society— to realize our longing for a more balanced, comprehensive, interconnected, and whole.

-Listening skills that will make hard conversations easier
The world “out there” can feel extremely polarized at times. This past year, polarization has been taken to new heights. Being human can be challenging and when conflict or strong differences of opinions or beliefs come up it can push even the most open hearted of us to the edge.
The next Love Lounge will focus on taking control of our reactions, how to use questions to guide a conversation and find a common ground when we have opposing views.
During the call you will have an opportunity to connect, learn, share and practice with other couples on how to shift triggers around polarizing conversations and transform conflict into connection.
Gain empowering tools and insights from the community on how to be a master at conquering upset and conflict.
