Creator, Yogiraj Charles Bates used himself as an example of what is taught in this workshop. His legacy, his ideas and models will be strongly felt throughout this workshop. He related to the many stumbling blocks that create relational tension. Through his deep inquiry into the dynamics he explored and mapped, he learned how to deepen personal growth through relationship. His techniques are taught in ‘We Can Relate’.

“The ‘We’ Can Relate seminar is an eye-opening and nurturing event that I encourage anyone to gift to themselves and their collaborators. The ‘We’ tools help remove barriers to being present and listening well. I enjoyed both the presenters and my fellow participants. Through the event, I also grew closer to my life partner.”

Her role as CEO of 10th Dot makes it essential to practice collaboration - the 10th Dot way, with clients, investors, partners, staff, and vendors to bring the 10th Dot vision to life; "You at your best; your endeavors thriving."

Sunday was a beautiful day with the two of you and our foursome. Relating from We is a powerful program with lots to experience and digest. One of the experiences that stands out for me is the visual of the posse, a community of the expanded self, and one way of seeing that we are not alone. The nursery rhymes also created powerful self discovery. That was an excellent exercise. What I am most grateful for is the safe space you created to explore the gifts of the shadow, including your willingness to be vulnerable and open to sharing aspects of your relationship. There was good learning in that. Thank you for a memorable and heart-opening day.
