Developing Loving Curiosity
inquiry & integration
What feeling and need do you most want your partner to hear and understand more deeply about you? After the exercise is complete you will ask your partner the same questions.
Ask your partner if they are open to taking 5-10 minutes to listen to you as you express what you most feel and need, without any interruption. Ask them to stay soft and say things like, "Tell me more" or "I'd love to hear what you mean by that." This requires empathy, humility, and setting their own needs aside. Thank them for listening compassionately.
