Without solid relational Foundations, it’s quite likely that you…
- Throw tantrums when you don’t get your way - even if it’s just a little sulk and pout
- Don’t know how to ask for what you want - or are one of those overly demanding people that irritates the hell out of everyone
- Get triggered all the time - Like all-the-damn-time
- Do that whole, seriously awful, ‘silent treatment’ thing when you get hurt - even if it’s just a little sulk and pout
- Suppress anger - - until it eventually explodes out sidewards over really dumb shit
- Settle for less intimacy than you actually want - and tell yourself over and over “if only they would change then it would finally get better”
- Struggle with feedback or criticism - becoming a defensive monster or a collapsed puddle at even the tiniest hint of disapproval
- Are harbouring a backlog of resentment - to the point that all you can see is that time when he/she did that horrible thing. You know, that thing… three months ago
- Think smalltalk is so fucking boring - that you’d rather watch Netflix than go out and socialise
- Are a people pleaser - and feel absolutely exhausted from endlessly and uselessly trying to please the whole-freaking-ungrateful-world
- Are shy and awkward in social settings - that you might as well be holding a lamp in the corner
- Try so hard to look good - that you can’t even see yourself through the noise of all the backseat drivers in your head
TRIIBE :: FOUNDATIONS IS ABOUT RELATING AND LEARNING TO DO IT WELL
Not only that but also your ability to be a powerful leader, create an engaging work space, make a meaningful impact in the world, all while living a kick-ass life, entirely rests upon this foundation of high-quality relating.
Relating is a capacity that can be learnt and developed, however it is rarely ever taught to any functional degree.
Most of us are so starved for connection that we no longer realise how much it hurts.
Our education systems didn’t teach us how to relate with each other, and for most of us, our caregivers and teachers also did not provide very good models growing up.
There is no shame in this.
We weren’t taught how to create depth in our relationships, or navigate conflict gracefully, yet many of us live in quiet denial secretly yearning and knowing that more IS possible.
It is possible to become so much more skillful in the ways of relating
There is a roadmap of self-awareness that will allow you to show up more fully as yourself, with healthy boundaries, clearly expressed needs and desires, and a strong sense of who you are.
Couple this with the skills to bring the same out in the people around you, and you have a recipe for a whole new world of incredible friendships, passionate romance, fulfilling work-life and healthy family dynamics.
Words cannot adequately describe just how powerful, beautiful and liberating having these types of relationships are. They need to be experienced, and the current relational Foundations we’ve been taught just-aren’t-good-enough. We need new ones.
Foundations is a training that leads to so much more than a weekend experience...
Has been so incredibly transformative for me. Before, I felt lonely and unseen all the time, even with an active social life. I often projected who I thought others wanted me to be so I’d get acceptance and connection. I hid large parts of me away, largely without even realising it. Really owning and sharing who I actually am has felt so fucking liberating! And it’s not only my relationships that have transformed, but also my sense of personal power - how good I feel about myself and my ability to create results in my life.
