Great post! http://www.madinamerica.com/2012/05/the-sacred-space-between/

 

This is a blog post describing the sacred space between people in relationships. One of my inspiration in couples therapy is Hedy and Yumi Schleifer that speak about how you need to another that scared space in your relationships. Martin Buber a existential jewish philosopher spoke of this sacred space He said,

Our relationship lives in the space between us – it doesn’t live in me or in you or even in the dialogue between the two us – it lives in the space we live together and that space is sacred space.” –Martin Buber

The way I interpret this quote is that when your in a relationship it is helpful to honor the separateness between the two of you. This often seems counterintuitive because we seek out relationships to feel more connected.  However to more connected one has to leave their own world and really listen to what the other has to say.
