Securely Connected: Finding and Keeping Love in Your Life
This workshop contains practical, relevant information that will empower you to make better decisions about your love life.
Much of what our culture tells us about how we love has been shown to be wrong by research. For example, experiments show that the most successfully independent, autonomous people are the ones most comfortable with how dependent they are upon their significant partners. This "Dependency Paradox" is just one of the many topics we will discuss.
The human brain has biological mechanisms that create and regulate our connection with others. This workshop explains what science knows about the animal nature of love, including how your hormones marinate your brain with bonding chemicals, the biochemistry of how love begins and ends, and how your upbringing organizes what you are able to see and hear from your intimate partner.
In addition to this theoretical presentation, you will do practical exercises as well. You will assess your own attachment style, and assess the style of a recent significant partner. Other exercises allow you to more fully explore and understand your own preferred love style and love languages, and you will have demonstrations to better understand how other styles fit with your own. This self-awareness expands your ability to inhabit your relationships with more choice and greater satisfaction.
This workshop is entirely appropriate for both singles seeking relationship as well as established couples deepening their relationship.
Workshop fee is a sliding scale of $75-$40. The workshop is valued at $75, but if that fee prohibits you from attending then pay what works for you. Work trade arrangements are also possible for further fee reduction. These fee accommodations are so that everyone who wants to attend may do so.
