Basing the presentation on the works of Fowler, Chapman, Bowen, Au and Libert, and her own lifetime worth of experience and Sr. Carole Riley describes what healthy spiritual relationships are and how to establish them. The presentation also covers how to heal broken or dying relationships and how to end essentially destructive relationships. The skills presented here are immediately applicable and can change both the dynamics of how individuals interact and how the Christian community as a whole gels in its life in the Lord. She presents the keys to mindful loving:
The nature of conflicts, and the dangers of distancing
Over functioning and under functioning
She gives techniques to come to terms with our emotions and ways to deal with temptations
All of this revolving around our faith, desire for God, and our prayer life. She spells out 10 misconceptions that can defeat relationships and 10 ways to promote success in adult relationships. From simple talking, to journaling, to Haiku.
