    Made me think: It’s always between reference points: We need both – freedom and connectedness and a willingness to always feel out of balance. Thanks, Bruce Tift

    Thank you Bruce for such an insightful talk! Seeing intimacy as energy of disturbance and provocation ever present and never resolvable is so helpful. To expect to live in challenge more than resolution lifts heavy weight of my shoulders.
