Originally presented at IDP as an eight-week course by Dr. Jeffrey Rubin, this 16-hour audio series sheds light on how all of us can create more evolutionary relationships - authentic connections that transform, grow, and thrive - with friends, family, and intimate partners. Dr. Rubin explores teachings and insights from Buddhism and Western Psychology to illuminate what interferes with our interpersonal dynamics and teaches how to foster greater intimacy with ourselves and others.
Each class includes guided practice, discussion, Q&A, and exercises. This download includes the original course syllabus and course readings drawn from contemplative traditions and contemporary Western psychotherapeutic sources.
