What we're about

Are you interested in developing your relationship awareness and communication skills? Do you know what it is like to be in a "conscious" relationship?

We all have a toolbox of some sort that carries the physical tools we need to fix up the little things that can go wrong in our homes and in our cars. What about your mental toolbox for working on the things that can go wrong in your relationship? Is that box full of functional tools?

This is a group for people of all ages, and any type of relationship, who would like to improve their awareness and communication skills. We get together in organized, but casual settings to discuss all aspects of relationships. It is a great way to interact, meet other people in an "organic" way and really learn about ourselves and others.

More like a game show than a Meetup, we call them "GrowthShops".

Review - I am always amazed with what I learn at these Growthshops! It was a very enjoyable evening!

Review - This was a great evening and discussion. An excellent topic for some lively discussion and conversation with an interesting and fun group of people. Looking forward to the next meet.

Our GrowthShops will cover topics like;

• What are your Core Values?

• Do You Know Your Attachment Style?

• Dealing with Relationship Conflict "consciously".

• Discover your Personality

• The 8 Conscious Connections

• The 6 Conscious Principles

And so much more!!

TELL me and I will forget. TEACH me and I might remember. INVOLVE me and I will learn.

Our events will be organized, fun and interactive...you will be INVOLVED!

ACP Zoom – CORE VALUES – An ACP “Foundation” Event

11:00 - 1:30 (SASKATCHEWAN TIME) https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2021335865 ACP Zoom – CORE VALUES – An ACP “Foundation” Event This is a multi-city event – There will be others attending! Here is the link to register - https://www.aconsciouspartner.com/foundation-events.html Scroll down to the CORE VALUES Events! In Lewis Carroll's timeless Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice seeks advice from the Cheshire Cat on where she should go next: “The Cheshire Cat: Where are you going? Alice: Which way should I go? The Cheshire Cat: That depends on where you are going. Alice: I don’t know. The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.” Why do I need to know my Core Values? Values give us our sense of purpose. When we align with our values on a daily basis, we have more energy and feel more fulfilled because we are leading from what’s important to us. When we don’t align with our values, we feel less authentic and become demotivated about our daily lives. Think of it as a tree: values are our roots that keep us grounded in what’s important to us. The strength of the values determines the strength of the trunk, branches, leaves and fruit from year to year. Many people think that values are ethics or morals; they’re not. Values are what is important to us, what we ‘value’, and what gives us purpose. Most people have approximately 5-7 core values that identify who they are at their core. Each person’s values are unique to that person; even if two people happen to pick the same value word, such as integrity, each person will demonstrate it differently in their daily actions and language. “If you don’t take control of your life, someone else will”. Personal values offer a form of focus because it becomes clear to you what’s important to YOU and no-one else. Because let’s face it – if we don’t know what’s important to us, how can we live a meaningful life? The process of discovering your personal values involves not just discovering what you’re passionate about but also finding out what’s really important to you. “Never let the things that matter to you the most, be at the mercy of those that do not.” But the truth is, most people coast through life without any kind of consideration for what is truly important to them. This means that unfortunately for many, life is something that ‘just happens’ to them. “It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” ~ Roy Disney This is a PWYTIW Event – Pay What You Think It’s Worth There will be no advance payment for these events. We want to encourage everyone to take these events, especially if money is tight.

They are designed for adults of all ages, genders, races and relationship situations. If you are looking for a way to improve yourself and your relationships, come and join this interesting and innovative way to explore what it means to be “conscious’ in life. October 2020 brings us Group D, consisting of; November 2,3,4 – Transparency November 9,10,11 – Narcissism / Borderline Personality November 16,17,18 – Opposite Sex Friends November 23,24,25 – Why We Cheat Transparency Being emotionally transparent is about us; it's not about our partner. It revolves around being able to share our deepest thoughts and feelings as well as our fears, anger, sadness, resentments, and joy. Transparency in a relationship is about sharing our thoughts and feelings honestly, without fear of judgement or repercussion. Narcissism / Borderline Personality Disorder We often hear the terms, but do we really understand what they are? The terms are used quite loosely when, in fact, the percentage of the population that actually has these traits is quite low. This event will help us to better understand what they really are, how we all have elements of one, the other, or both; and how awareness of the symptoms can help us understand ourselves and our partners. The information here will likely surprise you! Opposite Sex Friends Yes, platonic relationships between member of the opposite sex (or the sex you are attracted to) can a do exist. It’s less about whether or not they can exist and their impact on relationships in general, it’s more about how their existence may impact OUR relationship. Most people ask the question “Can men and women just be friends”. The answer to that question is an easy “YES, of course they can”! But the question is flawed. The question should really be “Do my partner and I have the security in our relationship and the emotional tools necessary to successfully maintain friends of the opposite sex (or the sex you are attracted to)? If opposite sex friends are a factor in your relationship, don’t miss this event! Why We Cheat Cheating is rarely just about sex. In fact, there are studies that suggest that cheating for sexual gratification alone is responsible for less than 20% of the cases. An affair is rarely the actual problem; it is usually the symptom of the problem. There is more often than not multiple other issues that have developed in the relationship and it is the inability to deal with these issues effectively that leads to one of the partners, or both, to seek other people to fulfill their need for emotional intimacy, to feel valued, supported, cared for etc. Not surprisingly, it a lack of emotional intimacy that leads the way when it comes to reasons why we cheat, followed closely by a lack of communication. There are any other numbers of factors, or combination of factors that also contribute. Infidelity is a complicated and difficult subject to deal with in a relationship, and the best way to prevent a problem is to first understand what is happening and then to develop our skills in the areas that lead to it happening.
