Understanding Relationships


We are created for relationships; hard-wired to connect deeply with other people. That's why relationships, when they're good, are the best thing in life. And why, when they are broken or superficial, they bring such heartache. This course is designed to help you understand what makes relationships strong and great, and what destroys them. The audio lessons and PDF’s will help you think through your own approach to relationships and grow in your ability to love and enjoy the important people in your life.

When you enroll in this course you receive access to download the audio lessons, teaching outlines with prompts for personal reflection and application, and further resources. Consider going through the courses with a friend or even a small group for a richer, more insightful experience. To have the best learning experience we recommend that you listen to each audio lesson 3 times. Listen first time through, take notes the second, and answer the questions on the third.



“I’ve had 2 very significant interactions this week and this information on healthy communication about direct requests and the way we communicate, content, tone and body language, using “I feel: and “I need statements” allowed for a beautiful restorative conversation in both cases which could have looked very different if I hadn’t learned these truths.” Rhonda


“What I have learned from the Respero teachings has made an enormous difference in my life, my relationships, and my marriage. I have experienced some of the deepest interior healings of my soul ever. I have been set free from lifelong bondages and patterns that were deeply flawed and damaging (to me and to others).” Lorin


“Iˆve grown more spiritually in this class than I have independently over the last few years.” Ron
