Let’s get started

THE IMAGO DIALOG: A conscious dialog

מֵשִׁ֣יב דָּ֭בָר בְּטֶ֣רֶם יִשְׁמָ֑ע אִוֶּ֥לֶת הִיא־ל֝֗וֹ וּכְלִמָּֽה׃

To answer a man before hearing him out is foolish and disgraceful.

 

The Imago Dialog is a way of communicating with your spouse about what really matters in your intimate relationships — what you need to feel loved, cared for, connected, and safe.

The Imago Dialog is designed to enable both people’s perspectives to be heard, respected, valued and create a sensation of feeling emotionally held in a judgmental free environment. 

It can help you and your partner to ask for what you need from each other, and to give what you need to each other, to bring you into compassionate and empathic connection.

The Imago Dialog is a structure for a meaningful conversation  where the Sender shares their thoughts and feelings about a specific issue, and the Receiver really listens, validates and shows genuine empathy.

 

In every dialog, there are two people:

  1. the Sender is the one who starts the conversation, the one who is bringing up something that they have been thinking about
  2. the Receiver listens and responds (mirrors, summarizes, validates, empathizes)

The steps of the Imago Dialog:

The Sender begins and ends the conversation. Through the middle, both are talking and listening respectfully.

1. Ask for appointment
2. Share and mirror
3. Summary
4. Validation
5. Empathy
6. End
