Connecting is a verb - How to Emotionally connect with the One you Love

Mimi Cogswell, LPC/PC Presents Humans have an innate need to connect with their people, it is in our DNA. It seems that our society has lost it’s way in the past decade with the introduction of digital virtual relationships and distraction. Do you long to feel connected to your special someone, be it your romantic partner, child, or aging parent? Do you feel sometimes most lonely when you are with this person? Or are you trying to find your special someone, and feeling like everyone around is “emotionally unavailable”? Life is not a dress rehearsal, the time is now. Armed with 16 years experience as a couples and family therapist, Mimi has done a review of the research around attachment theory, couples engagement strategies and mindfulness practices to create a 2 part weekend group experience for attendees who are ready to transform their ability to connect to people. Members are invited to come alone, or with their special someone. It is not a requirement in to bring your special someone/partner. A third and optional retreat weekend is offered for those that prefer to come alone for the first 2 groups (see details below). This is a personal journey to free yourself of those things from the past that are getting in your way of connecting in the here and now. Group 1 will be a day long educational and experiential seminar focusing on YOU. Learning to connect to yourself, to love and forgive yourself and be willing to make yourself vulnerable is the first step to true emotional connection. Not to worry, you will not be baring your soul to strangers in this group – though some may choose to and that is always welcomed. The experiential piece will be inward and with yourself through therapeutic modalities such as journaling, attachment style inventories and guided meditation. Mimi will share insights by some of the most well known researchers on learning to embrace yourself for the perfectly imperfect being you are such as Brene Brown, attachment theories stemming from the classic work of Bowlby, Bowen and even some EMDR (Eye Movement Desenitization and Reprocessing Techniques to help start putting the past that sometimes can haunt us, in the past. The goal by the end of Day 1 is you will know yourself, you will see what is getting in your way, and you will feel ready to open your heart to love deeply. A week later we will convene for Group 2, another day long seminar chock full of skill building around how to connect with your special someone. Mimi will share information from the masters of couples’ communication and building emotional connection, as well as less well known but effective techniques she finds useful in her private practice. Included will be wisdom from Marshall Rosenberg of Non-Violent Communication, how to stay connected despite conflict by Drs John and Julie Gottman, ways to bring back the romance by Harville Hendrix, founder of Imago Therapy, and techniques how to elevate communication with love and compassion with Dr. Susan Johnson. The goal of day 2 is that you will come away with an overflowing tool box of techniques to connect with your special someone. Coupled with your newfound ability to be open-hearted and emotionally vulnerable from day 1, you will be on fire! Cost of 2 Saturday Groups per person: $250 Dates TBD: 2 consecutive Saturdays in April Time: 8:30am to 3:00pm Location: Oregon City, OR Want More? Optional Group 3: Connecting is a Verb Retreat! Bring your special someone to a weekend retreat with Mimi to review and practice these skills along with individual consultation. This is a chance to get away, and be fully present with your person for the sole intention of connection, connection, connection!
