The emphasis, as expressed in the title, will be to discuss ideas and awareness that can help Buddhists and non-Buddhists "re-pair" their intimacy with loved ones after distancing, arguments, anger and even betrayals. Through this work we will thereby help to smooth the road to compassion, forgiveness and acceptance, as well as to deeper understanding of self and not-self. This discussion will also include specific concepts that can help us break through the impasses often experienced in emotionally close relationships, to support presence and resilience after reactivity and defensiveness, all while deepening our wisdom and compassion.
