Sunray - A Turning Point

Two in one Boat- a Journey beyond the Ego

(A workshop for couples) 

2-day workshop with Dr. Oliver Rivers

The workshop “Two in One Boat- a Journey beyond the Ego” is for everyone

who wants to experience a deeper relationship with their lover/partner.

When we are being guided by our Ego, we find ourselves alone at the end of

the day.


We feel disconnected from the person we are closest to; we feel removed

from each other and perceive ourselves as separated and self-sufficient.


Hence, we  constantly judge the person who we perceive to be “behind a

fence” and naturally feel judged and constantly engaged in games of power



This struggle may grant a brief sense of strength and pride (when we have

the upper hand), but we NEVER really feel true joy, happiness, love- all the

qualities that in their true nature CAN be tenacious, constant and everlasting.

As is typical in wars and confrontations (that always stem from a false sense

of separation), we all wear different uniforms, carry frontal shields and are

constantly“watching our back”.


“Two in One Boat” invites both of you to transcend your Egos and meet each 

other in a different place.  


“Two in one boat” encourages you to feel fully alive and present in your body,

your feelings, your sexual nature,your heart and your being.

to eastern and western theories. We will explore the ways of meeting as lovers
