Free Lesbian/Queer True Love Workshop in Marin!

  • March 29, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • A central location near College of Marin (Kentfield, CA)

Hi everyone - We are delighted that this Meetup has gotten such great response, but we're a little concerned about all of us fitting into our Kentfield host's house! So we are cutting off RSVPs for now. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause! If we get some cancellations, we'll make slots available again. Meanwhile, do check out the resources available at www.consciousgirlfriend.com, and stay tuned for our future offerings!

* * *

Are you a lesbian or queer woman who is still healing from your last relationships... and wondering how to make sure it'll be different next time? Or maybe you're "single and looking," and frustrated that the right woman just isn't showing up? Or partnered, but sometimes struggling with communication issues, differences, and other challenges? Wherever you are on your relationship journey, this class can help.

Most of us long to be better seen, heard, accepted and understood in our relationships - yet our differences, conflicts and triggers often get in the way of the deep connection we want. That's why we're excited to share with you our unique step-by-step approach to conflict... which actually allows you to use conflicts as a way of getting closer to yourself and your partner - rather than getting torn apart (and having fights, storming out, giving each other the silent treatment, "stuffing it," or spending hours engaged in fruitless, draining processing...!)

Then we'll talk about - and do some exercises pertaining to - one of the biggest triggers in lesbian/queer relationships: challenges around getting enough closeness AND enough separateness. For many of us, it's scary when our girlfriend feels too far away... yet it can also be scary, for us and/or for her, when it feels as if we're too close. There's a good reason for that, and again, it goes back to brain science. The good news is, we can learn to work with the intense anxiety states so many of us feel when there's too much distance and/or too much closeness, which we at Conscious Girlfriend call PAP (primal abandonment panic) and PEP (primal engulfment panic.)

Frankly, we see PAP and PEP cause more harm to lesbian/queer relationships than just about anything else. So whether you're single or partnered, understanding how to navigate this challenge can make a huge difference in your present and/or future love life!

Conscious Girlfriend's mission is simple: we're here to help lesbians & queer women create and sustain the intimate relationship of your dreams. It's not just about finding the right woman. It's about making the right choices!

We offer a safe, compassionate atmosphere in which self-defined LGBTQI women of all stripes can come together and support each other in growing, learning, healing - and creating true love.

For more information about us and what we're up to - and lots of free resources, including videos, articles and more - sign up on our mailing list at www.consciousgirlfriend.com!  (When you do, you'll also get access to our free booklet, "The Five Keys to a Happy Lesbian Relationship.")

In love,

Ruth & Michelle

    Thanks to LC for posting in my group, PMS. Shouldn't there be a note over there that let's people know that they should RSVP here? Or, how will the organizers find out that those folks are coming?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
