love programs/workshops for women

For many women, love is one of the most important aspects of living a full life. You may deeply long to find romantic love that is lasting and fulfilling. Sometimes however, when women define themselves by the object of their affections, they feel empty and insecure. What we encourage at Life Design Centre is broadening the concept of love to include not only healthy and intimate relationships with a partner but also creating rich relationships with yourself, your work, friends and family.

When romantic love is your specific goal, we will support you fully. We will work with you to clarify your current needs in a partner and explore how your patterns of behavior affect your ability to be successful in your relationships and in your life. Despite wanting love, sometimes women defend against real and true connection with another person out of fear of rejection or being hurt. If you’ve been living life in contradiction – wanting love and simultaneously pushing it away – we will help you take the first step towards changing your paradigm for love. Learn how to expect the best kind of love to come your way because you’ve done the work in order to know what you want and what you need. It is true that finding the right kind of love can change your life in the most profound ways, but there is wisdom in knowing that your life is only made great by you. Let love be the gift you give to yourself first.

Deepening Love In the Midst of Challenge
It is often in our romantic relationships that we place our highest hopes and expectations for loving connection and personal fulfillment. This workshop is for couples who are committed to growing together and connecting more deeply with one another, but who may be experiencing a specific challenge or long-standing obstacle that they want to overcome. The workshop will present each couple with ways in which each person can grow individually and within the relationship. Couples will be taken through guided exercises focusing on the core dimensions of intimate relationships: communication, intimacy, love, sexuality, power, expression of physical and emotional affection, healthy conflict resolution and shared spirituality.  Led by Life Design Centre therapists Thuy Bui, LCSW, CSAT and Mark D. Forman, Ph.D., couples who attend will leave with tools to inspire renewed hope, enthusiasm, transformation and purpose in their partnership. Throughout the workshop respect and attention will be given to both the masculine and feminine perspectives.
