Keeping the Love You Find” Individuals' Workshop

…an Intensive, two-day Workshop for individuals not currently in a committed relationship, who are tired of making the same mistakes and want to learn to find and keep lasting love

Using lectures and guided imagery exercises, written exercises and role plays in groups of three or four, you will develop a greater understanding of why your past relationships failed. You will put those experiences into perspective and use the information you gain to begin a healing process. You will also have a chance, during the workshop, to connect with other singles who are on a similar path.

It is not about how to snare the perfect mate, because the perfect mate is a myth.

THIS WORKSHOP will provide you with a chance to wake up your heart and tear down your walls. Most of the individuals who attend this workshop leave with a sense, for the very first time, of real hope for the future.

What you can expect from participating in a KEEPING THE LOVE YOU FIND Individuals Workshop:

Self-Discovery. Understand why you tend to be attracted to similar people. You will also recognize your defences, and learn how to achieve an intimate relationship without creating unnecessary barriers.

Learn How Childhood Wounds Affect Your Relationships. Through the course of the weekend you'll more clearly understand the connection between the frustrations you've experienced in past relationships and your frustrations in childhood. You'll be able to identify past issues that you unconsciously bring into your relationships and what role those issues play.

Heal Old Relationship Wounds. In small supportive groups you will have a chance to let go of painful emotional memories and “say good-bye” to former love partners.

Learn New Relationship Skills. You will practice effective skills to help you break the negative patterns of relating. You'll discover how you inadvertently sabotage relationships to protect yourself from fears and anticipated hurt.

Meet New People who are also involved in self-growth.

Create A Plan For Personal Change. By the end of the workshop you will know what you must change in yourself to Keep The Love You Find — and you'll create a step-by-step personal program to help you achieve your goals.
