Why we fall in love is a mystery, but how we make our relationships work and last a lifetime has been studied and analyzed. The description of an ideal mate transcends physical appearance or material success. Qualities that one couple might treasure could be repellent to another. A pleasing balance of intimacy, passion and dependence is an interpersonal matter that may differ for any couple. Character flaws in our partners have to be expected. None of us are perfect but what is unacceptable?Are there any constants that can be identified, common criterion that make relationships work universally?

To honor Valentine’s Day, Alex & Allyson Grey, will lead Art Church with an illustrated interactive discussion about Sacred Couples. While statistics may tell us that 50% of marriages end in divorce, what of the other 50%? What is the recipe for choosing the best mate and remaining in love? Join in a discussion on why successful relationships are evolutionary. Hear how biological strategies like adaptability, symbiosis and “survival of the fittest” apply to relationship choices and sustainability. What is the anatomy of a healthy disagreement? Can “reciprocal altruism” result in a holy love pact that lasts a lifetime? It is our experience that a transformative bond can activate a spiritual/creative life and open a universe of possibilities otherwise unimaginable. Come to CoSM for the entire Art Church journey that will start and end with art making and discussion of how we can have the undeniable treasure — a life in love.
