Co-Empowering Relationships : Dealing with Tyrants + Potluck Dinner
Relationships can be intensely frustrating and depleting. Or they can be incredibly beautiful. It is easy to forget that we are the ones in power of our own response when someone triggers us. What if tyrants are actually trying to teach us something and we could gain illumination from them?

Tyrant is a strong word, but it refers to anyone who frustrates, annoys, tricks, attacks, guilt trips, or saddens us. It is easy to forget that we are the ones in power of our own response when someone triggers us though. Tyrannical influence can occur in any type of relationship: at home, work, or in personal relationships.
We often give away our power, don’t set boundaries, and lose energy over our interactions in these relationships instead of creating a space for mutual benefit and welfare. Sometimes even we are the tyrant and have our 'favorite' way of tyranizing ourselves and others either consciously or unconsciously.
Many times we try to fight fire with fire or out-trick the trickster, but it doesn’t work. So what if the tyrants in our lives were actually able to be our teachers? Could we gain illumination from them about strong healthy relationships?
This teaching will help you discover how you are losing energy in your interactions with others and how to handle tyrants effectively. We will be teaching specific remedies for dealing with each 'type' of tyrant. You will learn to be at cause and never a victim of anyone or your circumstances.
WHAT TO BRING:
