Re­la­tion­ships are key to life. Life is about be­ing in re­la­tion­ship – we are in re­la­tion­ship with friends, fam­ily mem­bers, part­ners, chil­dren, col­leagues, neigh­bours, even our­selves. Ev­ery man, woman and child who has ever walked this planet craves open-hearted love and af­fec­tion.

Some­times cir­cum­stances in life are such that we don’t al­ways re­ceive love and af­fec­tion the way we de­serve. We want to pro­tect our­selves from the im­mense pain. We re­spond by clos­ing our hearts and be­gin to look out­side our­selves for hap­pi­ness. Our hearts are bro­ken.

From that ex­act mo­ment, the mo­ment when we feel let down, the mind takes us on a roller coaster of emo­tional ups and downs. One minute we feel ec­stat­i­cally happy and the next we feel de­pressed and dis­cour­aged. We for­got that we closed our hearts and left the most im­por­tant part of our­selves be­hind. Over time the lows can out­weigh the highs. We be­come dis­cour­aged.

Once we lose our­selves we pro­ject our great­ness and our most self­ish qual­i­ties onto other peo­ple. We do this with ev­ery­one. It is more ex­ag­ger­ated with lovers and au­thor­ity fig­ures. This cre­ates end­less re­la­tion­ship dra­mas - es­pe­cially with those we love.

The ego mind al­ways wants to place the blame out­side the self. How of­ten do you do this? Some­times we pro­ject our is­sues so in­stantly onto oth­ers we don’t re­alise that the pat­tern is com­pletely un­con­scious and dif­fi­cult to change.

If you could grow to the point where you could de­tach from your mind through ob­ser­va­tion and let­ting go, then you could cen­tre your con­scious­ness and per­son­al­ity within your own heart. From that mo­ment com­plete hap­pi­ness and ful­fil­ment in this life­time would fol­low. So would a great re­la­tion­ship.

Re­mem­ber that birds of a feather flock to­gether. When you be­come au­then­ti­cally heart cen­tred ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­one around you will change. You will at­tract a lov­ing and avail­able part­ner to the de­gree you pos­sess those qual­i­ties.

When you open your heart once again and fall in love with your­self so will ev­ery­body else. They will not be able to re­sist you. That’s be­cause you won’t be able to re­sist you. Ev­ery­thing you need is within. By gain­ing this deep re­spect for your­self through love it forces ev­ery­one else to treat you the same. They will have no choice. The Heart of Re­la­tion­ships work­shop is a pow­er­ful pro­gram de­signed for you to cre­ate the lov­ing, pas­sion­ate and ful­fill­ing re­la­tion­ships your heart de­sires. Whether you’re in a re­la­tion­ship or not, this work­shop is im­por­tant if you want to be best part­ner, par­ent, friend, co­worker, fam­ily mem­ber and, most im­por­tantly, the best friend to your­self.

Its pur­pose is to teach you how to cre­ate a field of at­trac­tion, giv­ing you the tools to re-ig­nite the pas­sion and in­ti­macy with your part­ner, so you can both feel loved and con­nected on a much deeper, more sat­is­fy­ing level.

Robert brings to his prac­tice aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tions in psy­chol­ogy and busi­ness; as well as decades of prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence in both.

In the last 26 years, Robert has worked with in­di­vid­u­als and groups around the world. His clients have gone on to achieve ex­tra­or­di­nary suc­cess.

What if some­one’s gross vi­o­lence is ac­tu­ally meant to show us how ugly that is, like a road sign say­ing: go back! Ex­am­ine your own small vi­o­lence. Don’t snap at the kids, yell at the crazy driver or be bru­tally self-de­struc­tive.

What if you are not who you think you are, and nei­ther am I? What if you are an age­less, time­less soul hav­ing a hu­man se­mes­ter in Earth school? What if the ed­u­ca­tion called life is not to avoid stress­ful things but to learn to be at peace any­way?

What if stress is noth­ing more than a con­di­tioned re­sponse, one that is not ac­tu­ally aris­ing from life events, but from the way we per­son­ally re­spond to them? What if stress is just the state of con­scious­ness that is fash­ion­ably ‘nor­mal’ right now but there are a thou­sand other choices?

As Ma­hatma Gandhi knew and we can dis­cover for our­selves: there is no road to peace: Choos­ing peace in ev­ery sit­u­a­tion, in ev­ery mo­ment is the road. And you know what? When you feel the clench of stress, let it go and make the choice of peace – not only will you feel lighter, but things are likely to end up flow­ing bet­ter than you ever dreamed they could.

What if all this time we have been wor­ry­ing about noth­ing?
