In answer to requests, we are now offering a series of short courses to expand and deepen topics introduced in weekend courses. These short courses may be useful for you and your friends to “try out” our work with the intention of encouraging them and you to take the relationship-changing “Having What You Want with a Man Weekend” course, other weekend courses, retreats, intensives and our Master Course, The Evolving Nature of Being Human.   

You with Yourself
 
The Natural Power of Being a Woman One-Day

9:30am - 5:30pm
Desiring being loved is a healthy, natural longing. Being empowered, supported, cuddled, soothed, known and understood are experiences we want from someone who loves us and is around on a regular basis. We want unconditional love and we deserve to have it.

It is said that to receive love from someone else we need to love ourselves. We need to create an environment in which love coming from someone else can find its way to us, to our hearts and be experienced through our whole being. We need to create this pathway by loving ourselves.

Creating this environment where love can find us is the core of our day. Through conversation, deep reflection, exercises and visualizations we will develop a route through which we can attract the unconditional love we deserve and desire. Welcoming love in is first step to having him love being around you. Keep it up and he will cherish you and once you feel cherished life changes in a fundamental and heart satisfying way.
It is possible to have the love you desire and it maybe very different than you imagine.

Bring with you:
a notebook
a photo of you as a little girl
a description of what unconditional love would be like for you
(please take time and consider this deeply)
The fee is $195. Please call the office or email your intention to join us. To enroll, send payment to the office.

You and Your Intimate Relationship
 
Having What You want with a Man – Reviewed

(not technically a Short Course, but why not shorten your path to finding a great partner and review the Weekend, right?)

The best way to move forward towards a relationship is to review – and keep reviewing - our main 20-hour course. This may not be fun to hear but here it is — in relationship, we women are often the limiting factor in how much we can be cherished. Our resistance to being truly loved and known can take many guises — over-busyness, anger, blaming, “never being picked” and on and on. In relationship each of us has expectations, history, beliefs, hidden conversations, lack of self-love, fear of forgiveness, tolerating difficult feelings, not acknowledging our power and information about relationship filed upside down and backward. Since our part of issues in a relationship is all we have to work with, reviewing this course will help you uncover what may be blocking you from having the abundance of love and tenderness — the cherishing — that can be yours.

We offer a discounted price of $275 for Grad reviewers making it a bargain to spend a weekend moving to the next level of relationship-readyness.

Getting Ready for Him One-Day

(9:30am - 5:30pm) is designed to help you prepare to meet him by getting clear about what you want in a relationship. What YOU actually want. Not what your mother, grandmother, Audrey Hepburn or anyone else wants but what will make YOU happy. Imagine the process as choosing from a menu of characteristics possible in men. What if it were that simple?

At Life Works we believe that being crystal clear — like a lighthouse beaming your presence and attracting what you want, welcoming some men and warning others to stay away — is an important step in finding a nurturing, empowering relationship. If finding a great guy is like a job interview, you need to know what qualities you are looking for, have some details for a job description, be aware of the pitfalls you have experienced in the past. When you meet him, be prepared to learn about his background, how he has performed in similar situations as well as what he is looking for in the future to see if he will be a good fit in your life.

Although there are no “rules for dating” or trickery involved, we do encourage honesty and clarity when women are choosing men to date. Once you are discerning we can also help you master the techniques to see if he has the qualities you want — in a female way, of course. We call this “heartbreak insurance” and want you to be prepared and ready to learn about potential partners when you are meeting people.

Women report that although some of this information is covered in the Having What You Want with a Man Weekend, this day-long course actually empowers you to fill in your lists and refine them. You leave with a great deal of information about the qualities you are looking for in a relationship so you can find a man who has many of them and determine if you can inspire a quality or two that many not be apparent at first.

Please call the office at 212-741-8787 or email your enrollment to WeCare@lifeworksgroup.com The fee is $275 for the course and you must be a graduate of the Having What You Want With a Man Weekend or a Grad Guest to attend. There are questions to answer and homework to do to prepare for this course.

To prepare for this course you may want to read the excerpt from our There is NO PRINCE book from our Free Gifts, “Manifesting the Partner You Want: Making a List,” available for download at this link: PDF

If you are interested in dating and want some help getting started we have a new project with the working title, “26 Weeks to Love ~ Finding Him” which will be an online course that may be perfect for you. Email and we’ll let you know when it is ready to gently guide you towards a great relationship.

Finding Him ~ Interviewing One-day

This short course will help you find him by getting clear about what you want in a relationship. What YOU actually want. Not what your mother, grandmother, Audrey Hepburn or anyone else wants but what will make YOU happy. Imagine the process as choosing from a menu of attributes possible in men. What if it were that simple?

At Life Works we believe that being crystal clear — like a lighthouse beaming your presence and attracting what you want by welcoming some men and warning others to stay away — is an important step in finding a nurturing, empowering relationship. Finding a great guy is like a job interview. You need to know what qualities you are looking for, uncover details for a “job description,” and be aware of past pitfalls. When you meet him, be prepared to learn about his background; how he has performed in similar situations and as what he is looking to see if he will be a good fit in your life. Fee is $125

Finding Him on the Internet

4 Sessions. This course, created in response to graduate requests, focuses on using this WORD CHANGE large dating pool of possibilities where there are many more men than women allowing you to learn a great deal about someone before you meet.

Do you need help using the Internet as a dating tool? In this four session program, you will learn how to explore this "new world of dating potential." You will discuss which online services are right for you, write a winning profile or personal ad, learn how to “get yourself up” online, brush up your dating skills, keep track of all your prospects and refine your goals. You will share your experiences with others also trying this new dating arena, problem-solve your issues and learning spots, and best of all, have some FUN while making yourself available for him to find you, too. In the words of a recent participant:
“This course gave me the courage, support and skills to start online dating. I went from not dating at all to having a multitude of men to choose from! I can only say with enormous gratitude — thank you!” – MK

Life Works Guidess Cheryl Marks-Young used the Internet to find her husband and became an expert on how to "surf for love." She created this course out of her own thorough experience and we are opening it to women who have not yet done a weekend course at Life Works. Consider taking this course as a personal commitment to yourself and the life you want to create with a man who might be searching for you right now. You'll be easier for him to find if you put yourself on the Internet. You will also learn more about yourself and the possibilities of the Internet and personal ads. Also open to women who have not yet completed a weekend course at Life Works. Fee $225

How to Be More Cherished

One-day 9:30am - 5:30pm
This is not fun to hear, but here it is — in relationship, we women are often the limiting factor in how much we can be cherished. Our resistance to being truly loved and cherished can take many guises — over-busyness, anger, blaming, and on and on. In relationship each of us has expectations, history, beliefs, hidden conversations, lack of self-love, fear of forgiveness, not acknowledging our power and information about relationship filed upside down and backward. Since our part is all we have to work with, this one-day course will help you uncover what may be keeping you from having abundance of love and tenderness — the cherishing — that can be yours.

You know you love him and most days that he loves you. Being cherished. That is the relationship utopia we often fall short of. What happened to that glow you felt when you were newly in love? How can you get it back? More importantly, what shifts do you need to make to keep it in your relationship — always.

This profound and important investigation stands on the shoulders of the How to Be Cherished Weekend. It will be a deeper cut and further extension of the material presented in our book of the same name. We want women to feel the mastery and empowerment of having in their lives men whose hearts and minds are committed to having the best relationship possible. We may have to just lean back and accept all they want us to have and enjoy. If we can only get ourselves out of the way, we can receive their cherishing. We’ll talk about how to do just that.

The fee is $195 for the course. You must be a graduate of the Having What You Want With a Man Weekend to attend. Please call the office or email your intention to join us at WeCare@lifeworksgroup.com. There are questions to answer and homework to do to prepare for this course. To enroll, send payment to the address below.
