    Appreciated the training very much but thought the use of pronoun “him” throughout was distracting and would have been nice make more general neutral. At the end Andrea began using partner and that was helpful. Great insight and useful recommendations.

    Thank you Andrea. I found a lot of value in your book presentation – It’s well researched, practical with just enough, timely personal reflections.
    The delivery was considerate too..using slides to remind us of the key actions . Considering the levels of violence and abuse in relationships it maybe useful to give a mention to those that are stuck in radical acceptance of the unacceptable!! That said, the wisdom you share is helpful and clear for where I’m at and I appreciate it. All blessings to you all…and do thank your husband for me…

    I think Andrea had some good thoughts that she shared, but to be honest I found the delivery challenging to listen to and to follow. I felt like she was amped up, talked too fast, and – most significantly – couched the topic so thoroughly in her own experience and heterosexist language that I found what she had to say myopic and difficult to relate to.

    I really loved this talk, so practical and in my case so very needed. Thank you for sharing so openly such great advice and tips! I will be using them in my own marriage most definitely

    When something really hits home it starts to get uncomfortable. Thanks for making me squirm. Much to think about.

    Thank you Andrea. I agree with you that to be both loving and compassionate one needs to radically accept, which is accepting all aspects of the person, as they are. I would suggest that in order to have this occur, one also needs to do the same with oneself… that is taking self-responsibility for one’s own vulnerabilities and traits that also need accepting and a whole lot of loving.

    Very inspiring and practical approach to deal with marriage day to day challenges. It was powerful to hear you say that the opponent in the relationship is not the other person but your reactions to what happen in the relationship. As you describe the steps to overcome the duality of he is “all the good things” except when he is not makes me realize that it is completely in our hands the ability to transmute the judgement into compassion and empathy for a healthier and more harmonious relationship. Thank you!

    Love your house. Maybe you stick with your hub because he has bucks.

    Wow, thank you so much! This feels like life saving for our battered relationship with my husband. It’s invaluable to have real instructions on how to do things differently!

    I, totally, disagree with Andrea. People judge – a situation, what a person says or does. Is the situation safe or unsafe?
    I like the idea of substituting judgement for compassion – go ahead give it a try. But to blindly accept no judgement is dangerously wrong.

    This person is supposedly the CEO of YourTango, “the leading media company dedicated to love and relationships.” I went to the is site and among other links, it has one with the full video of the guy who just drove his car over people in New York, killing at least one. And at the bottom of this are other links to all sorts of other garbage. What is the purpose of displaying this story? There was no commentary around it other than the story itself. Must just be money-making links and has nothing to do with spiritual growth.

    Very enjoyable, practical, thought provoking session. I’ve learnt some new tools and been reminded of one’s I’ve learnt in the past. I highly recommend the love languages books by Gary Chapman that Andrea discusses.
