Conscious relationships

Awakening together

One thing is certain in these turbulent times: we’d do well to get more skillful at human connections. Whether it’s our significant other, our flatmate, our waiter or the person who upcycles our garbage, more conscious relationships make our lives better, and help us create the world we want to live in. Plus, moving from loneliness to conscious relationships is a necessary aspect of one’s spiritual evolution.

1. Learning to be alone.
2. Have a clear personal vision.
3. Learn to meet conflict gracefully.
4. Change is certain, get used to it.
