Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D., offers strategies for establishing and maintaining healthy interpersonal boundaries.
Establishing and maintaining effective boundaries is an essential skill for living the celibate life. We often focus on the dangers of inadequate or overly porous boundaries, but rigid, impermeable personal boundaries can be isolating and equally detrimental to sustainable celibacy. Exploring the extremes of these two boundary styles can provide important insight into how to develop healthy, life-giving interpersonal relationships. Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D., offers strategies for establishing and maintaining healthy interpersonal boundaries.
