This presentation will explore the impact of instinctual subtypes, separate from type, on relationships. The three major instincts (self-preservation, social, and sexual) and the subtypes which are formed by them have a powerful impact on our style of relating. Since the three subtypes have very different interests, energy levels and needs, conflicts in relationships are often more related to subtype than type differences. Understanding these differences can improve relationships immediately. Participants will explore a current relationship and leave the workshop with greater awareness about the key dynamics of this relationship. In addition, participants will gain a better understanding of the influence of instincts/subtypes on relationships in general. The workshop will include brief talks, inner practices, group exercises and short panels.
