Growing into Childlike Love – Conscious regression in intimacy
WITH DR. TOM HABIB
The highest stages of intimacy rest upon LR structures that enable a couple to navigate the inevitable emotional issues that arise.
These structures are laid down in Stage 3, the Relational Stage of a Couples Development. The majority of couple’s center of gravity hovers within Stage 2, the Roles Stage of development.
In this interview Tom will bring his clarity and simplicity to illuminate what has to be understood in a couple’s intimate interaction to achieve the foundation from which the upper stages can be sustained.

HEIDI´S INTRO TO THE SHOW
During the IEC Conference in Hungary 2016 I had occasion to videotape the presentation of Dr. Tom Habib on the “Couples Line of Development”. I posted it on YouTube and we had several shows with him in our Wisdom Factory, always talking about intimate couples and how the knowledge of the integral map can explain certain phenomena and how, using the map, we can predict the growth process and skilfully help the couples grow in a good way.
See previous shows HERE.
It is astonishing how Tom’s message is “landing” with the people: Almost unknown in the integral community 2 years ago, he is now widely known and his work very much appreciated.
