This course traces the movement of the male/female relationship from its biological history and early romantic phase, through various learning stages, to later expectations and finally to the growing together in compassionate love. This will incorporate co-dependency, roles we play (i.e. sister, mother, brother, father), the healing we seek, support, security, sharing care, our personal development and emotional maturing, but also the harm we can sometimes meet. We will also look at the various relational connections we make in the need for intellectual, emotional, and physical growth. How we meet soul mates, and develop life style choices will open a variety of views for discussion, adding to our awareness in a thought-provoking and, hopefully, helpful manner.
