Conscious Relating Retreat

Where Soul Love & Soul Partnerships Ignite

Hello Soulful Seekers of Love, Intimacy & Ecstasy…

Singles and Couples… Ever experienced this in your love life? 

 

  • Men, you can’t seem to make women happy, no matter what you do: It seems tough relating to women these days and too many men just give up.
  • Women, you never seem to get enough intimacy, attention or affection: Too many women ask, “Where are all the strong men?” … and find it hard to trust… let alone surrender.
  • Singles, you feel as if you’re wasting your time dating people who really aren’t right for you: That’s no fun and it definitely doesn’t lead to long term love. It’s an attraction problem.
  • Couples, you wonder what happened to the love and passion: You might even fear you may never get it back… and, even worse, you have no idea where to start.
  • Men, you feel like the nice guy who finishes last and never gets the girl: If you’re supposed to be kind and sensitive… why does she get frustrated or turned off by the SNAG (sensitive new-age guy).
  • Women, you feel like he’s not (or wasn’t) really there or he just “doesn’t get it”: You wish men would show up and be present.  You wish you could depend on them so you could finally relax a little and not have to handle it all.
  • You’re tired of watching the chemistry fizzle and the love fade… and ending up in the friend zone: Nice girls and nice guys… intimidating women and sensitive men… have lost access to the “spark”.
  • You’ve fought about sex? About affection? About intimacy? You’ve fought about it… over and over and over again… and nothing really changed.
  • You fall asleep lonely… wishing you were cuddling or making passionate love: You’ve probably asked for what you want, maybe even pleaded… and you’ve just about given up.
  • You’ve lost your confidence in love and wonder if “happily ever after” is even possible: It’s hard to muster up the energy to try again… and again… and again… when you think it’s not going to work anyway.

Let’s get you on your way to ecstatic living, loving and lovemaking right away!

The Ugly Truth about Your Romantic Roadmap

Here’s the thing… Don’t you hate it when Google maps takes you the wrong way?  Do you end up grumpy because the GPS took you out of your way and it took longer to get where you wanted to go? If you’re like most men and women, you weren’t given a roadmap to love and the “map” you made up in your head is filled with wrong turns, dead ends, and one way streets.  That map has likely taken you to places you never intended to visit in relationship.  Instead of taking you on all of the most scenic and exquisite highways of love and passion, you’ve probably spent too much time on the unpaved, ugly detours, thinking, “How the heck did I get here?!”

Does it seem like your map leads to heart ache and heart break instead of  “Happily Ever After”?

That’s why love has hurt so much… 

  • It’s why so many start to believe it’s better to be alone. (And, it’s not.)
  • It’s why so many feel less than confident when it comes to skillful loving and lovemaking.
  • It’s why so many couples fight. (Did you realize you were following two different maps and they’re both inaccurate!?)
  • It’s why men and women don’t understand each other.  (You actually need two dictionaries and two maps.)
  • It’s why singles worry about first dates, first kisses, and first time sex with a new partner.
  • It’s why love can fade before you know it…  and then you wonder, “What in the world happened?”
  • It’s why too many relationships end up in breakup or divorce.
Man Confused about Conscious Relating
AdobeStock Equal isn't Same in Conscious Relating 1

Worse Yet…

Thanks to popular media and culture, recent decades have been completely confusing for men and women when it comes to love and relationships.

Men in our culture have been both rewarded and criticized for being sensitive, soft, and emotional.  

Yes… soft and sensitive are great qualities in a man, as long as he never trades off his authentic presence, potency, and purpose in order to be that way. 

If you’re like so many of the men I work with, you feel like you can’t win. It seems like you’re judged as either too assertive or too soft.  You want to be powerful, but you want to be nice too, and you never want to be a jerk.

You’re left feeling confused and frustrated… and maybe even at a loss to create the life you know you can have… from business to bed… and everywhere in between.

 

At the same time, women learned to be strong, powerful, and never show vulnerability or weakness.

Again, these are fantastic qualities, but when these are rules and “shoulds” rather than authentic personal truths, they leave many women exhausted, lonely, and longing…wondering, “Where are all the great men?

The problem is we’ve made equal mean same, and that kind of equality kills passion.  That kind of independence builds barriers.

I’ve Made HUGE Mistakes in Love and I’ve Found a Better Way…

20 years ago, my 4-year marriage to “Prince Charming” ended in divorce.  After that I went through relationship after relationship after relationship.  They were all good in some ways, they just never had the deep love and passion I craved

I often asked, “Where are all the strong men?”

On the most frustrating days, I asked,

“Why do I keep meeting all the sexually repressed men?”  

Years later, I finally got it.

It was never them.  It was me.

I realized the very same thing that was the source of my strength, power, independence and success was also destroying my relationships.

I was climbing the corporate ladder, beating out the boys in the High-Tech and Oil Gas industries

I was tough, smart, and strong.  It made me great friends and colleagues with men, but romantically unattractive…

I thought I was being exactly what men wanted (and, truthfully, what I thought would keep me safe) and it was the exact opposite.  I still didn’t trust men and I repelled the very men that most lit my fire.  Errr!  My so-called “best self” actually pushed away the men I desired.

I was left with lots of tears and lonely nights.

It happens the same way for men… it just looks different.

Prince Charming in Conscious Relating
No Bad Boys 1

Men, She Doesn’t Actually Want the ‘Bad Boy’

I’ll come right out and say it—women don’t want the “bad boy.”

Women want a man that they can trust and rely on, a man who knows who he is

and what he stands for… AND who has an open heart.

(Women are definitely done with the emotionally unavailable men.)

 

So what’s the problem?

Men, in your sensitive heart-felt attempts to make a woman happy, you actually frustrated her, and maybe even hurt her.  

I know that sounds ridiculous… but let me explain.

The problem is… as women stepped into their power and took more “control.”  Men, you still wanted to make her happy, so you honored her new “power.”  You let her take the “lead”  and she got pissed off because she felt like now she had to “do it all!”  Simultaneously, she forgot how to receive and you forgot how to be direct, decisive, and assertive. (Which by the way, turns her on.)

This hot-cold, happy-sad, push-pull dynamic drives you crazy and, more importantly, it makes you feel as if you’ll never get it right.

 

It’s a no-win setup for failure.

And when you can’t get it right… you can’t make her happy… you leave.

Breakup.  Heartbreak.  Divorce.

Women have been there and done that to you.  I’ve done it to men.  It’s time for us to heal this pain and reunite the genders and reignite the sparks. 

As a man, your part of the healing actually happens when you reclaim and honor the man you are – all of your potency, power and passion.  I know this might sound scary in light of the #MeToo fallout, but because you are here reading this, I know you have what it takes to be a leader in this change. I know you have the capacity to embody the healthy conscious masculine that the world needs now… if you’re willing to step up and step outside your comfort zone.

Women, He Wants to be Your Hero

Ladies, I’ll come right out and say it here too – men want to be your hero.

And you don’t let them.   And, you miss out on the attention, affection and generosity your crave.

If you’re like the millions of professional, successful, attractive women out there struggling in their relationships, you’re probably independent, strong, and totally reliable. And, you’re probably tired… even exhausted.

You might imagine that accepting help, or worse yet asking for help, makes you somehow weak or needy…  You couldn’t be more wrong.

 

Women… you’ve gotta give men a chance I’m not talking about the ones who don’t stand up for themselves or you.  I’m talking about the good guys… the men that adore you… the ones who want to take care of you.  Very specifically, I’m talking about the ones that are working overtime trying to make you happy. 

If you’re like I was, and like so many of the women I work with, you’ve become so strong and “do-it-yourself” that you never actually let a man in.  

You’ve become blind to the gifts of men… the heroes they actually are.

It just might be time to let down that protective shell, relax, trust again… and receive again… Yes you.

I tell the women I work with…. The mantra of a single frustrated woman is “No… no… I’ve got it.”  The mantra of a happy in love woman is “Thank you,” spoken as she receives the contributions of great men!

Women, I know all of this can feel much easier said than done.

#MeToo Chivalry isn't the problem
Wrong Way. Go Back.

Are You Watching the Signs?  Or, Ignoring Them (and Wishing you Hadn’t)?

Men and women have different maps to love and we pretend we don’t. John Gray was right. We speak different languages.

Relationship journeys can lead to ecstasy or they can lead to agony and defeat, depending on which route you take. Have you felt like you’ve seen “Wrong Way. Go Back” signs along the way?  Did you follow the signs or did you keep going anyway?

If your route is filled with potholes, speed bumps, traffic circles, and detours because of unconscious limiting beliefs, judgments and bad habits…  it’s really hard to find and ignite love in the first place… and even harder to have it last. 

And it doesn’t have to be that way.  

That’s why…

You’re invited to the…

Conscious Relating Weekend Retreat

Where Soul Love and Soul Partnerships Ignite… How to have Deep Intimacy and Ecstatic Love 

LIVE in Denver, CO – February 22-24, 2019

This powerful and transformative weekend, filled with conscious men and women (single and partnered), like you, will radically transform your relationship with love, intimacy and ecstasy.

 

You’ll finish the weekend with a more open heart for intimate loving… and you’ll know how to ignite chemistry, attraction and passion in kisses, conversations, and lovemaking.  You’ll discover exactly how to create a soulful relationship that’s on fire with love and ecstasy and you’ll see, hear, feel and know how to keep those fires burning over the years of loving!

 

Here’s what you can expect from this experiential, eye-opening, powerful, practical and transformative Conscious Relating weekend event…

On the Evening of Day 1 and the Morning of Day 2:
Leave the “Unenlightened” Baggage Behind
Your “Conscious Relating” Intensive Retreat begins with experiences and exercises designed to remove the blocks and barriers to love, intimacy, and relationship that might exist within you. You’ll clear out beliefs, habits, fears, and judgments that have been limiting you from opening your heart fully to the depths of love. You’ll leave behind “walls of protection” that keep you from accessing and experiencing true romantic intimacy.

Releasing all that, you’ll be able to take your life, love and lovemaking to levels of intimacy you’ve only imagined before.

Day 2 Afternoon:
Ecstatic & Sexy Men & Women
On the afternoon of day two, you’ll get completely clear on your masculine or feminine sexual essences. You’ll literally practice walking, talking, and standing in your true nature. And, along the way, you’ll get plenty of great personalized feedback. The feminine will inspire the masculine to step into its presence, mojo, passion, and confidence. The masculine will help the feminine step into its grace, presence, radiance, and confidence.

Day 3: Getting Intimate
Finally, on day three, we’ll dive deep into the tools, skills, and practices you need to create deep intimacy—emotional, physical, and spiritual intimacy—with a romantic partner. We’ll explore the differences between how men and women communicate so that you can learn how to “translate” our different languages. Plus, you’ll learn our shared language of intimacy (and it’s not what you think!) Finally, you’ll put into practice all aspects of conscious and intimate communication so that you know how to connect at the deepest levels of your heart, reduce the number of upsets, move through inevitable challenges more quickly (with less heartache) and know exactly how heartfelt intimacy sets the stage for ecstatic lovemaking.

We’ll create a space for learning, questions, conversations, and honesty between men and women as they share with each other what truly creates the most attractive, intimacy, loving and passionate experiences for each other.

Retreat Discussion

More Specifically, Through Exercises, Experiences, Practices and Discussions, You Will… 

  • Get out of your Comfort Zones so you can actually access your dreams... in life and love.  (Your dreams and desires don’t exist in your Comfort Zone.)  Don’t worry, you personally get to choose how often and how far you step outside your zone.)
  • Take down your unique “Walls of Protection” that keep your love stuck inside and other’s love from getting in. (At the same time, you release old beliefs and thoughts that you’re not enough, not deserving, or not lovable.)
  • Get the opportunity to forgive the past so you can free up the space in your heart and body to fully experience the love you seek.
  • Learn the real truth about Masculine and Feminine Power.  You’ll see how VERY different they are and why they work best together!
  • Practice… practice… and practice again how to express the Masculine and Feminine in you. You’ll feel – in your own body and witness it in others – the presence, movement, voice and attraction of the authentic masculine and feminine and begin embodying it to turn up your confidence, power and sexiness.
  • Participate in special Saturday night experience of a conscious, intentional (fully-clothed) Tantric Puja designed to awaken, heal, witness and celebrate the Divine Masculine and Feminine.
  • Discover the in’s and out’s of Intimate Communication, and how men and women do it differently, so you can stop the misunderstandings and turn up the happiness and harmony.
  • Finally, and most importantly, you’ll get permission to be fully you – the most lovable, sexy, attractive you, so you can finally feel, receive and totally enjoy the Soul Love you seek.

Joanna Shakti Sexual Differences

The entire Conscious Relating weekend is designed to wake up the ecstatically authentic you — the most romantic, intimate, and passionate you — so you can ignite and experience the deepest love and truest passion.  

At the end of the weekend you can expect to leave with…

  • A profound sense of love in a way that you’ve never experienced it before; a sense of love that you can literally feel in your cells.
  • A much deeper trust in love… a renewed trust in YOU when it comes to finding and keeping love… plus a new level of trust in the opposite sex.
  • A lighter load and a more open heart – with more capacity and availability to love and be loved… in all the ways you’ve wanted to be seen, loved, felt, honored, and made love to. (Because you left the weight of the baggage, hurts, upsets and self-judgments behind.)
  • The wisdom to know what ignites desire and what douses the flames of passion.
  • The practical insights into the differences between men and women including what actually makes love and lovemaking great for the opposite sex (I find most men and women have this completely wrong!)
  • A deep knowing of the language of intimacy – how to speak it, how to listen to it, how to respond to it.
  • Much… much… much… more understanding of, compassion for, and love for the opposite sex.  You might just start celebrating the amazingness of men and women!
  • For MenMore presence in the world. You’ll stand taller and stronger. You’ll stand in your truth and command attention, especially from women.
  • For Women:  Your magnetic attractiveness and innate beauty shining… Feeling the confidence to walk into a room and let heads turn (and you feel totally safe).
  • For both Men and Women:   A knowing of what it takes to be best friends AND passionate lovers…and stay madly in love.
  • For YOU:  The inspiration to create a truly connected soul partnership where you share heartfelt moments of joy that last through the ups and the downs of life…forever.

Here’s What Past Singles and Couples Have Shared about the Conscious Relating Weekend Retreat…

“I just experienced an awesome workshop with Joanna… Conscious Relating.  I could certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to expand their understanding of relationships and their understanding of themselves. Extremely well presented and covered a very wide range of topics.  Joanna managed to cover those topics in sufficient detail and with personal experience so that each topic became a valuable tool to allow us to analyze ourselves. I’m looking forward to a much better relationship with my wife and certainly with myself.” ~ Heike

“Frankly I’ve been to a lot of workshops and I was thinking this was going to be another typical workshop. I’ll tell you, if there are any thoughts, by all means go. There are a couple of processes that certainly cut to the quick. There aren’t a lot of words, but there are a lot of processes that really drove home a lot of issues that I’ve been dealing with for a long time.  If there is anything I can say, if you’re single, in a relationship, by yourself whatever.  It’s certainly life changing” ~ Patrick

“This has just been the most fantastic weekend.  I had a brilliant time.  I was so scared initially about coming, because as with all women, and people, I have issues which I wanted to hide and didn’t want to go into. I found that Joanna’s gentle and loving ways just brought things to the surface naturally. Everything was so opening. It helped me to just find my center and heal, which is really what this is all about for me. It was such an enjoyable wonderful weekend. I made some more brilliant friends that I know I will have forever.  More to the point, I made friends with myself and now have a real connection that I couldn’t quite get before. There’s something about this work that is so opening, touches so deeply that I really recommend it to anyone who is thinking along the lines of opening into relationship.  It really was wonderful.  Thank you Joanna.  Anyone else, please come and do this for your sake, and for the sake of the planet, and for all of us.” ~ Jan

“I wanted to express my deepest gratitude to Joanna for putting on this Conscious Relating workshop which was very moving… such an empowering workshop.   I know it’s going to immensely impact my relationship with my wife who took the course with me.  It was a wonderful time together. We have lots of things to put together and learn and grow with … with this wonderful information about how men and women think differently, behave differently, see things differently, yet how beautifully we complement each other when we are just open to that.  My sincere and deepest gratitude to Joanna and this work.“ ~ Chris

Singles… a quick note… 

NOW is the time – before you meet someone amazing – to turn up your confidence, your clarity, your love… and even your sexiness. Now is the time to decide that you’ll never again settle, sell yourself out, or twist yourself into a pretzel to find or keep love. It doesn’t work if you wait to figure out all this relating “stuff” until after you’ve met your “One”.  That’s too late.  You want to bring this wisdom, skill and experience to your next date… to your next relationship rather than fumbling through those initial conversations, your first time in bed together, and even your first fight. (Plus, when you show up as a soul partner…  you’ll attract a soul partner!)

I look forward to seeing you there…

I know the pain and challenge of love and intimacy… I know what it’s like to feel frustrated, alone, and even hopeless…

I’ve blamed me… I’ve blamed men…  I thought I wasn’t enough…

I cried tears of loneliness.  I got angry and said things I wish I hadn’t.

 

It doesn’t have to be that way when it comes to love and intimacy.

If your heart… your soul… is hungry for real love and intimate passion… even if the thought scares you.  (It scared me.  Most of us have some resistance to the unknown… and the realm of true conscious relating, ecstatic intimacy, and soul partnership is a big unknown for most of us.)

 

That’s why I’m here… to shine a light on the power, potential, and ecstatic pleasure of the union of body, heart and soul in love.

Join me in Denver and together we’ll ignite YOUR body, heart and soul.

P.S. Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions about the Conscious Relating Retreat:

 

Can I attend part of the weekend?
I’m afraid not.  Once we start on Friday night, we’ll create a conscious container for everyone to feel comfortable, exploring these important topics of love and intimacy in a conscious and honoring way.

 

What are the starting and ending times each day?

We kick-off the Conscious Relating Retreat Friday night at 6:30.  (Registration opens at 6 pm).  Saturday we’ll start at 9 am and finish at approximately 9:30 pm. (We’ll take lunch and dinner breaks that day.)  Sunday we’ll start at 9 am and finish about 5 pm.

 

Where is the Conscious Relating Retreat held?  

The Retreat will be held at the Denver Airport Marriott Hotel at Gateway Park.  We have a special discounted room rate at the hotel. If you’re traveling in from out of town, the hotel provides a free shuttle to transfer you from the airport to the hotel quickly.

 

If I live locally do I need to stay at the hotel?

If you live locally you are welcome to commute from home each day, if you would like. Alternatively, staying at the hotel can give you a chance to immerse yourself in the retreat without any distractions.

 

I’m single, is this retreat for me?  or I’m in a relationship, is this retreat for me?
Absolutely – it’s for both singles and couples.  We usually have about 70% singles and 30% couples and that mix provides for wonderful learning, sharing and support.

 

I’m in a relationship, what if my partner isn’t interested and doesn’t want to participate?
Not to worry – the systems, tools, and ways of being that you will learn will still contribute greatly to your relationship… It only takes one to create change for both.

 

Will I have to work with other people?  Will I have to share?
No and… this retreat offers a safe environment for everyone to practice the very skills that make a relationship successful.  You don’t have to step outside your comfort zone, but I’ll encourage it, because your comfort zone isn’t where the relationship you desire or the change you seek happens.  Of course, you get to choose when, and if, you’d like to share and you always get to choose your partner for any exercises.

 

I haven’t had a relationship in years – is it too late?
It’s never too late to love.  I’ve had people from their 20’s to their 80’s attend my events.  No matter your age, you will learn to step into your authentic self so that you can most easily attract (or re-attract) your “one”.

 

I’m scared to open my heart again.
I honor you and I’m very sensitive to the pain you may have from previous relationships.  Trust that there will be others who are also feeling that ache.  I will be there to gently guide you… to hold your heart… and maybe even your hand… so you can find yourself opening to trust again.

 

Will this work for me?
The Conscious Relating Retreat is the kind of retreat where people say, “Wow, I didn’t know what I didn’t know.”  It opens their eyes to the power and possibility of love and intimacy.  It reignites hope and gives you the wisdom and practice you need to connect with your soulmate and create a soul partnership.

 

I have another question you didn’t cover, how do I get an answer?
Questions are normal, please send them to [email protected] and we’ll get back to you right away!
