Love and Commitment–Helen 06/14/11

Today we are on day six of our seven day Love Odyssey. At 5:30 this morning we met our couple and took them to a remote beach in the dinghy. Each partner was given the opportunity to vent their resentments for 30 minutes while the other one had to sit quietly and listen. Then we dug a hole and they burned the resentments. Bryce officiated at a resentment ceremony (similar to a wedding ceremony) followed by champagne.  For me this is the most fitting and emotional ending to a journey of love and re-commitment to a relationship.  I always feel very emotional after this and in my mind this is not only a re-commitment for our Odyssey couple, but also a personal commitment for Bryce and I to continue our own journey to help others and to grow ourselves.
