Applying the higher-consciousness of meditation in daily relationships


“Humanity is under great pressure to evolve because it is our only chance of survival as a race.  This will affect every aspect of your life and close relationships in particular… Your current state of consciousness is the best indicator of your future… Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.” – Eckhart Tolle

We are at an inflection point. This is a time of great collective distress, as well as being a time of great emerging potential. There is an expansion of human consciousness occurring to meet these challenges and opportunities.

All relationships are rapidly becoming the leading-edge domain to support, and participate with this unprecedented evolution of humankind.

Relationships informed and inspired by the next stages of human consciousnesses are needed now more than ever before.

 BeingBasedRelating meets these challenges and opportunities providing access to resources and practices to relate more from Presence or Being; and less from unexamined ego/mind and habitual personality.


“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Being-Based Relating: “The
Four Stage of Intimate Relationships”

Excerpt from the White Paper: “Partnering at this stage is driven to connect Being-to-Being, to share Presence. Intimacy can thrive supported by a rich mix of personal responsibility, mutuality, and autonomy. Sexual-love increasingly becomes a tool to support awakening. Non-monogamous urges, when they show-up, simply matter as truth. There is simply little or no interest in withholding information. Betrayal has all but ceased to exist; the motivations to withhold, so common at previous stages, holds little or no attention. Far and away from agreements or virtues, what matters is alignment with reality as integrity. Sensual and erotic energies are explored and developed. There may be alignment in alternative or open relationship(s). Truth, trust, and transparency are not held as values, they are what hold our attention and what interests us.

 Long term unions here are “powerful and life-changing” as higher-levels of consciousness and love, as well as increased sexual capacity are awoken and stabilized. The “connection” between spirituality and sexuality adds lasting vitality and aliveness to the experience of intimacy and sexual-love.”

About BeingBasedRelating

Coaching, counseling, practices, and courses focus on developing an evolving self based more in awareness, immediate insight, and direct experience; and less in conditioned egoic patterns.

 Such adult-development fuels growth oriented approaches to address life’s most significant challenges, as well as offering reliable paths to realize our deepest longings and aspirations.

  • Family systems and conflict resolution

  • Parenting and co-parenting

  • Conscious de-coupling & divorce

  • Deepening a sense of community and friendships

  • Workplace emotional intelligence (EQ) – leadership and team building

  • Intimate relationship & attachment skills (traditional, non-traditional, LGBTQ, & ethical non-monogamy)

 Methodologies apply proven transpersonal resources and practices (“trans”personal – beyond the personal sense-of-self).

At once artful and potent: Access to more Presence or Being is core to developing increased emotional intelligence (EQ) and opening-up to self-actualization.

This is a sense-of-self imbued with responsive situational awareness (healthy masculine), open-hearted emotional availability (healthy feminine), more ease with complexity and multiple perspectives, as well as steadiness in resolving conflict.

In the workplace or external world: this broader sense-of-self is creative, resourceful, and resilient… On a personal level: such relational competence is healing and restorative, as well as a root source of profound well-being in our shared internal worlds of heartfelt love with family, friends, and partners.

BeingBasedRelating offers individual or couples counseling & coaching, business & corporate EQ team coaching, online courses, and presentations.
