Pine Street Sangha offers continuing education workshops focused on working with couples, beginning with an introductory workshop “A Prelude” and deepening into a 4- part monthly series.
Disillusionment is a natural part of any ongoing relationship, yet its presence can be destabilizing to couples – not to mention dysregulating for everyone during a therapy session – including the therapist. Modern couples often read disillusionment as an indication that something is terribly wrong – maybe we shouldn’t be together, maybe we’re a bad fit. Yet Buddhism has always understood disillusionment to be a natural part of life, and so has provided guidance for how we might meet this inevitable difficulty. This guidance can be especially useful to couples and to the therapists who work with them, for it provides a way to understand this state as a doorway to greater self-knowledge, compassion, and love.
