Components of Marriage Works
Each participant will return the "I want to be there sheet." We will send an application to fill out and then schedule a personal interview with Marilyn and staff to discuss your intentions and goals for the course and answer any final questions you have about your participation in the Marriage Works Intensive.
72 hours An expanded version of the "Having What You Want with a Man" Workshop designed to have participants understand what is in the way of them having what they want. Introduces many of the concepts what will be used in the six month course and begin the fast track to a relationship. It will demonstrate the shifts and changes necessary to begin feeling powerful in relationship. When women feel powerful they can think differently. When they think differently, they feel differently — stronger and more optimistic. When they have different feelings they are able to take different actions. When they take different actions they will have different results...and husbands. There are 2 more extended sessions with this focus, one, a 3-day course plus a 2-day weekend towards the end of the Intensive.
Working with Marilyn
Weekly group sessions with Marilyn to uncover, empower, deepen, strengthen, open, expand, lighten, demystify, cheerlead, rearrange, delete, laugh, cry, heal, invigorate, educate, practice, tolerate, learn compassion, understand men, slow down, speed up, stimulate, fascinate, and magnetize what you want...and then being able to receive another's love.
Weekly Guiding Sessions
Each week each participant will have an individual session with her own Guidess (formerly called Coach). Each woman will have the focus and attention of her Guidess as she tries out the information presented and integrates it into her life. It is the place to speak about confidential issues and ask for clarification on any of the material being introduced in the sessions. The Guidess will help move the participant along toward her stated intentions, problem-solving the learning opportunities and will remind the woman to live from the Marriage Works philosophy: "Everything I want is happening, it's just a matter of time."
Clearing the Way
Often what comes between women and relationship is the inability to know who they are and the effect they have on others. By removing discomforts of change, upsets that happen in dating and relationship and taking too many things personally, women can become an environment where what they want happens. These courses, both of them, will cast light on what it means to be human and the natural power of being a woman. They are designed to help participants be more of their authentic selves, more fully who they were meant to be and thus less defended and more attractive. They will be more open, confident, easy with themselves and have an expanded ability to be with a wider range of people, thus having a greater spectrum from which to choose a mate.
Men Tell Us About Themselves
These two evenings will give participants the opportunity to ask any question they have ever wanted to ask a man... and see and hear his response. They will have the opportunity to see want men want and desire from a woman and with a woman. Candid, clear communications with our panel are bound to be both revealing and relieving. "We have some wrong information. Be with the man in front of you — not the one in your head."
Making Space for Him
Interior Designer leads a lively evening on how to help participants get their homes ready for relationship. Clearing out, stocking up, the feng shui of relationship, man-readiness and surprise topics will be discussed. In the following 3 weeks she will meet with each woman for 3 to 4 hours in her home to address specific issues of color, furniture placement, energy-flow (Feng Shui), decoration and more. She will "help create the environment that both soothes and expresses what you are all about."
Image consultant and clothing designer Debra Cox conducts an evening on how to shift your presentation towards relationship. Smartly casual as well as evening clothes will be discussed to lead participants to feel comfortable and be prepared for every dating situation. In the following 2 weeks Debra will visit each woman's closet making new combinations with clothes the participant may already own, help her try out new looks and also clean out what is no longer needed and maybe holding her back. "When you have space for him, he can come forward."
In a day and three evenings we'll help you get clear about the qualities you are looking for in relationship. You'll make lists, visualize situations that you want to share with your man and see the patterns of potholes that you fall into in relationship. You'll practice attracting what you want, experiment with the interviewing process and refine what all your lists. Many women marry the men who were originally experiments. Marilyn did.
Be a Goddess
Artist and healer Sylvia Moss will lead sessions designed to help keep you grounded and balanced while you met and explore relationships with men. She'll show you how to glow from within, be more calm, breathing correctly to take in any situation more fully and stay clear so you can make the best choices. You will be expanding your intuitive ability, perceiving a person's inner nature in a powerful way and knowing how to interact more deeply with your creative, playful side in a more flexible way. All leading to being more comfortable in the presence of a husband. "A rose is itself, and the bee comes."
A field trip to a leading bridal shop owned by one of our graduates to look at the array of fashions for that special day. You'll have an opportunity to try on dresses and begin to visualize what kind of wedding day you'll want. "If you can see it, you can have it...."
A series of evenings with artist, writer and Yoga instructor Carole Forman will help participants feel better in their bodies and move with more ease and grace. Opening up is a process we spend our lives doing. Carole helps "open mind, body and spirit which must happen if we are going to enjoy men."
Maureen Walsh and guests will help women open to accepting all the wonderful gifts, tokens and special times that men are wanting to give. Helping men know what you want, being pleaseable, inspiring generosity and being grateful are all part of the process. Samples of specific gift items as well as engagement rings and wedding gifts will be explored so "participants can begin to identify what symbols will remind them they are cherished and loved."
We will have two parties encouraging women to use them as a laboratory to watch and learn about themselves and how they operate in social situations. When one sees that she does some things that may not be productive, it is often easy to avoid those missteps in the future. Parties will also be used to shift possibility from the competitiveness of singles gatherings to a more generous, relaxed and even supportive opportunity for meeting men. Each woman will be encouraged to bring several men with her who are ready for a relationship but whom she is not interested in. "Our parties usually have more men than women — and the men are terrific!"
