Hal: "Hello, I'm Hal Stone."
Sidra: "And I'm Sidra Stone."
Hal: "Welcome to the Mendocino Series of Voice Dialogue Tapes. In this tape we will be telling you all about the dance of the selves in relationship."
Sidra: "Relationship is a subject very dear to our heart since we're in a loving relationship and a lot of our work and our discoveries have come out of our relationship. It's been a remarkable teacher for the two of us."
Hal: "For me, the relationship marked a real change in my life because before I began to work on these issues with Sidra, my orientation in consciousness work was quite introverted. I saw the consciousness process as essentially a highly introverted process and I certainly never had the idea that I could learn things on a serious level from relationship. A partner was something that you needed for a wide variety of reasons, but the last one that I could have imagined was that it would support my own search for consciousness. So, this movement represented for me a rather major shift when I began to discover that relationship itself could be a very serious teacher.
I don't mean to imply that relationship replaces our introverted work. There's a place for our introverted, solitary work and there's a place for our relationship work and both, together, of course, are extremely important. At this point, I feel really quite passionate about the subject because it has brought so much to me and it has meant so much to me that I'm excited at the idea of beginning to bring our discoveries to a wider audience and to begin to open out our thinking about the primary selves and disowned selves and bonding patterns. They have brought so much to us and are a matter of very great excitement."
