An open relationship is another gateway for development and transformation in the relationship. An open relationship has many good qualities and brings about many opportunities, alongside many common “landmines” and challenges – which will be discussed during the course. The course refers to the challenges that arise with the opening of the relationship and provides keys for breaking through the challenges that appear along the way. The course was created from and is presented with a great deal of experience Shachar has encountered and experienced as a couples therapist, for those entering through the gates of the open relationship. The insights shared throughout the course are part of the common challenges faced by the majority of the couples.

The course lessons deal with tensions and balances prevalent at the center of the couple’s relationship in relation to the open relationship – transitioning from placation to willingness, from control to vulnerability, from experiencing a sense of failure or success to a state of thinking in terms of experimentation and erring. Finally, the objective of the course is to guide you towards a relationship which is supportive of love, pleasure, freedom, passion and growth.

The course includes relationship exercises designated to be practiced at home. They will be beneficial in packing the teachings into your relationship toolbox. The tools taught in the course originate from the non-violent communication and physical psychotherapy fields.
