It is fascinating really as it really puts into context the bigger picture. It goes beyond…..heal yourself with the goal to self-actualize with your independence intact and then you will be ready for a relationship. This might be typical of traditional individual therapy approaches. Rather what I am getting is that inter-dependence and interconnectivity is the goal.
So back to the bigger picture…..as the Universes evolves and since we are all connected and therefore evolving along with it, so it is that the coupleship is a mini-Universe and has full potential to evolve. In fact isn’t the relationship itself the vehicle with with the couple can evolve? And our job as Imago therapists is to help couples move to a higher level of growth, evolvement and inter-dependence and of course to create foundational safety and connection first but ultimately evolvement and consciousness. It seems to me that as per The Cosmic Journey this is what the couple is yearning for. The couples sense of aliveness is a natural outcome. I am part of this journey with the couple so as they achieve this, so the sense of aliveness is also apparent in me (well, we all come from the same source, we are energy and we are all connected so how could it not?)
