In distressed couples, individuals typically blame each other and fail to see their own role in any problems.

Most likely they might be doing the exact same, and we’ve reached a stalemate driven by the negativity bias. Sara will talk about how we can expand upon the principles shared in Buddha’s Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path. How do these relate to the subjects of housework, anger, sex, conflict, and infidelity? She states that through mindfulness and ever-growing self-awareness, we begin to see our behavior more clearly and relate to our partner more lovingly.
