I offer this 8-week workshop for 6 to 10 people. The sessions are held weekly for 1 ½ hours. Every session is divided into ¾ hours of lectures, ½ hours of active guided meditations integrating what you learned, followed by ¼ hours discussion of the trance experience. It is not group therapy: there is no personal disclosure, no cross talk, and no help offered by the participants to each other. Nonetheless, strength in numbers happens, a bond is formed, and modeling and hearing truthful experiences of each other heightens the learning.
Getting the Love You Want
There is a good person for every person who wants one. Research demonstrates that we all thrive in social relationships, and that men flourish more than women in marriages. Studies clearly show that in order for our brains to grow, we need new social relationships.
Learn the reliable strategies, skills and tools to find and be successful in the relationships or friendships you desire. Even if that relationship is only the one you have with yourself, learning these skills will improve your self-esteem. If you are an introvert, you can be happy with only self-love, or if you so desire, one other good relationship.
Week 1. Letting Love In.
This is an introduction to what love is; what are the types of love, the “love is letting go of fear" hypothesis, and setting your goal for the workshop.
Week 2. Loving Yourself Just the Way You Are.
This is a series of exercises, stories, facts, skills and tools to change the way you think about yourself and increase your self-esteem. You really cannot love another in a healthy way if you do not elevate your love of yourself.
Week 3. Getting Ready and Making Room for Him, Her or the New You.
A lot of people say they are ready for love but really aren’t. This session explains the nine important steps needed to get ready for a healthy love relationship.
Week 4. Knowing Exactly What You Need and Want.
This session explains the ten important criteria you need to know to flesh out the person who will fit with you. More importantly they delineate the type of person whose love will heal rather than harm you.
A 19 minute excerpt from a live Week 4 workshop:
Week 5. Setting Boundaries and Surviving Confrontation.
As you slowly reveal yourself to a new person and them to you, you will need to learn some skills. These include; how to test a person, assess their behavior and set boundaries. You will then need to learn to handle any confrontations, which may arise during these activities.
Week 6. Starting To Look, Date, and Handling Rejection and Rejecting Others.
There are four probabilities to a new relationship:
- You don’t like them, but they like you
- You like them, but they don’t like you
- You don’t like them, and they don’t like you
- You like them, and they like you
Then one out of 20 will fit with you. To be sensible you need to learn relationships are a numbers game and not to be taken personally. This session guides the way to intelligent dating.
