Dr. Jeffrey Rubin returns to IDP for a special summer series on cultivating and sustaining healthy and happy relationships with friends, family, and intimate partnerships.  He will explore teachings and insights from Buddhism and Western Psychology to illuminate what interferes with our interpersonal dynamics and help us learn to foster greater intimacy with ourselves and others.

This wonderful series is designed as an exploration to shed light on how all of us can create more evolutionary relationships; authentic connections that transform, grow, and thrive.  

Each class will include practice, discussion, Q&A, and exercises.  Readings will be posted to the class page, and will draw from contemplative traditions and contemporary Western psychotherapeutic sources.
