Love Cycles with author and therapist Linda Carroll.
For all people interested in the topic of love, come to these popular, witty and meaningful sessions to enjoy a fascinating exploration of love's five paths and perils. Each stage is described using pop culture, poetry, and a synthesis of the most current science and literature on marriage, intimacy, and sexuality.
SESSION ONE: Love Cycles
Relationships are explored as a series of five stages through which we travel – from romantic bliss to rude awakening to disillusionment and sometimes despair until, finally and ideally, a resting place where love has grown deeper, richer and more satisfying. We discuss how to select wisely, how to win even when it doesn’t work out, and to understand the cyclic nature of love’s seasons.
SESSION TWO :
Love’s Wisdom and Folly
Decoding Love’s Potion, understanding inevitable infinity loops—or, “the never-ending pattern of disagreement,” and why, sometimes, even the most solid-seeming couples don’t make it. Strategies for how to select the right partner and staying happy and committed, even in difficult times. You will learn three essential skills during this session to help with all relationships. Come with a partner, a friend or by yourself.
SESSION THREE: Sexual Cycles
This session will sizzle. We will discuss sexuality through the stages, covering issues of intimacy, passion, as well as differences in desire. Linda will use anonymous questions and choose topics from her many years of experience as a "Hot Monogamy" therapist to create a lively and informative dialogue
SESSION FOUR: Remembering Our Essence
During this informal session, Linda will describe the writing of her book, Remember Who You Are, published by Conari Press in 2008. We will look at the seven stages of remembering our true nature through stories, poetry, imagery and questions.
