The class is taught by consultants of the teaching trio There Are Wives: Barbara Allen, Anne Fielding, and Meryl Nietsch-Cooperman.
Through examples from one’s everyday life and through literature and music, women will be learning the crucial difference between love and possessiveness
through studying the following illuminating sentences by Eli Siegel, American poet and critic, and founder of Aesthetic Realism:
“Love is a way of liking the world through a person. Possessiveness is really not
the caring for a person; it is the caring for the importance that a person gives us.
There is a great difference. Possessiveness has one criterion: you don’t want
anybody to make the person happy but yourself.”
Each woman will come away from this important event with vital knowledge and
fresh hope through learning what Aesthetic Realism alone explains: 1) possessiveness
is not love because it arises from the hurtful desire in oneself to have contempt; and 2)the purpose that makes real love possible is to want to know a husband and use him to care honestly for all else!
